Posted on 12/12/2018 12:18:50 PM PST by detective
In a recent item for The Federalist, David Harsanyi considered the M16 rifle one of the five most innovative firearms in American firearm development history. Yet something equally significant can be said about the semi-automatic AR-15 derived from the M16. Second to the muskets used in our revolutionary and civil wars, the AR-15 may be the most important firearm in American political history.
All told, more Americans have fired more rounds from more AR-15s for personal defense, defensive firearm training, marksmanship competitions, individual practice, and hunting than from any other rifle. For that reason, the AR-15 is the primary firearm upon which Americans would rely if they had to fight for freedom today.
Here are 10 reasons to own at least one AR-15 and to become skilled in its use.

I’ll keep my Saiga TYVM.
To defend yourself from Democrats. Theyll pry my AR-15 from my cold, dead hands.
Reason #11 should be: The AR-15 is just fun to shoot and mine cries out for more accessories!!
#11. The goverment today had Micahel Cohen plead guilty to something that is not a crime.
We can thank soon to be Speaker Pelosi for sending AR-15 sales through the roof.
And the 11th reason. You will drive the libs crazy.
If ‘a friend’ owns, um, more than one or two, what does that do to rule 11?
It is an interesting article.Since we live in the country I need more long range performance.So it’s a 7.62 for me.I do have a couple of AR15’s and an M16A1 for the wife.
His only real crime was he didnt own an AR-15.

I would add another reason:
11. It is extremely easy on the shoulder, thus a joy to shoot, often.
You do know that AR’s can be configured in 7.62.
Are people actually buying ArmarLite AR-15’s or other companies versions? I’m thinking of getting one but don’t know which one has good pricing and reliability.
Democrats are the best advertisement for the ready availability of the AR-15.
.340 Weatherby and a 6.5 Creedmore is my choice for long range, Weatherby is identical to the .338 Lapua with the same grain bullets.
That being said, it’s been so sad after I lost all of them in that tragic landslide we had here...
Girl Shoots AR-15 For First Time
Even the Amish have AR-15’s.They love to shoot my class 3 weapons too.Who would have thought that.....
I like my IMI Golani in 5.56mm, also a Kalashnikov derivative. All steel except the folding stock. Replaced the plastic with wood.
Never liked M-16s. In Vietnam I carried a folder AK in the cockpit but an M-16 on ground duty. Plastic & aluminum - yuk. Went back in the reserves & carried a M-16A2. Better, but I still dig the AK.
Anyway, good to know that AR-15 ownership is proliferating. Makes Schumer & Feinstein sh*t square nickels knowing AR-15’s are out there in the millions. Molon labe!
I have ‘a friend’ with a Bushmaster AR-10, and it’ll shoot 7.62 or 308.
If shooting prone/bipod, it’s a tack driver at 150 yds. Hits a deer-sized target at 500.
