    When I'm just going to wander around my farm, particularly when it's not hunting season, I usually carry one for varmint hunting. This could be hogs, raccoons, bobcats, opossums, armadillos, coyotes, or some snakes. The guns are light weight, accurate, low recoil, shoot a small bullet, and can rapid fire as needed. They're truly ideal for my needs.
    I manage for quail and most of the varmints listed above can do a lot of damage to nesting birds.

    I belong to a gun club and shoot a lot. I do not care to own an AR and do not like to be near them on the line. Reason is I am about 3/4 deaf and even with a very good set of muffs over turned off hearing the muzzle blast bothers me. Only thing I have found worse was a .338 with a muzzle break. Accuracy wise the cheap one seem to pray and spray. The good ones have seen sub minute of angle out two hundred yards. For those that like them buy as many as you can because they might be going away soon. Franco I do not agree with you on home defense. A short barreled shotgun, extended ammo tube, red dot or laser loaded with #4 buck I think trumps an AR. Especially if you have several.

    Why do the police seem to think they need them?

    Don't forget the right to bear arms is a check on the government. Not much of a check when we the people are armed with bolt action rifles and pump shotguns.

    A better bet,, Would be to Remind the People who took the Oath to Obey the constitution to remember their pledge..
    The "oath Keepers" have an interesting website..

    States to refuse federal Laws to Oppresive legislation..
    Your VOTE more powerful.

    Reminders to your congress goon,, they will loose their cushy job if they dont obey the second ammendment..

    Demonstrations in the streets!!!

    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.

    As has been pointed out a hundred times..

    You AR is nothing more than a semi automatic rifle..

    Very True,,,, But lets be real about this..

    Hopefully,, like in other countries that we have recently witnessed serious overthrow.. The Armies of the Dictaor in charge refused to fight their own families and citizenry..

    The armies maintained some level of control and civility..

    Our service personel have taken an oath to uphold the constitution. I do not believe (maybe naivie) that sons would turn their weapons on Family members and friends.
    Destroy what they took an Oath to protect..
    I have the utmost respect for our military.. They put their lives on the line everyday to protect our way of life,, and our supreme rules..
    My Waco analogy was a poor one,, because of the difference in circumstance,, But it did show the force that COULD be applied. an indvidual, or a group of individuals with .223 ARs wouldnt stand a chance..
    As in most all theses events,,, the culprits decide on suiced when confronted.

    If I were one of these lefties,, I would be worried about WHO the U.S. army, Navy, and Marines would decide to fight!. If they continued to circumvent the constitution.. JMHDAO

    I am Very Pro Gun!!! You want an AR,, I will stand with you and defend your right to own one..

    In times of strife,,, It will be My decision as to how I defend myself..

    I am more concerned about anarchy and thugs, despots of society taking adavntage of Strife, and trying to steal whats mine...
