Okay, I'm not sure why I would want to buy an AR-15. What purpose would it serve me as a private citizen? Shed some light and your feelings please.
AR-15s are some of the most customizable rifles available. They serve a wide variety of important purposes.
I'm going to be the odd man out and say don't....yet.No, no joke. I'm wanting to know people's opinion on why I should go out and drop a $1000 on one.
Because you can...
if you dont want one, dont get one. do you want us to BEG you?
a fighting RIFLE is just as, if not more important as a fighting PISTOL.
If you cant figure out why the american public NEEDS military type weapons, then re-read the constitution, the bill of rights, and american history over and over till you get it.
i only have one .. rock river .. and the rest are more of ak's .. my feelings are .. why not .. it's like getting of both worlds .. my first was an ak and then i'm like hey .. why not an ar :mrgreen: .. you can do so much on an AR .. putting whatever you want on it.
+1 on thatBecause you can!
...and because there are a gagillion configurations available...enough to fit any need you may have!...
I went to a pistol/carbine match yesterday day and it was the first time I shot an AR. I knew I wanted to have one eventually for the range, home defense, and just a general purpose rifle. I can't hunt with a semi auto rifle in PA, but I can still shoot the crap out of it at the range. After competing yesterday with the rifle, I've decided to get one as soon as possible. I really enjoyed shooting it and the competition. If you have any concerns of ever needing to defend yourself with anything more than a pistol from nature, rioting, SHTF, terrorism, whatever, you might want to be armed with something better than only a pistol.
Basically just to say you have one and if zombies even came about, you'd be pretty good to go. Living in NJ it isnt practical for me to have one so I'm selling mine.
