The Ar15 is a poor choice in close quarters if you are going for mass effect as well. It's a carbine.
A Vepr 12 with a shot spreader would be FAR more effective, but we aren't dealing with warriors here, we are dealing with criminals.


An SKS with 30 round mags.

If you want power and accuracy. The AR-15 is not reliable, I would rather have my 1911 than an AR-15. That is why the narrative is false

Criminals who watch a lot of movies and are probably not very bright ( a redundancy).

I wonder what this guys training consisted of as well.
That carbine comes in 7.62x39, I suppose we should count our blessings he didn't buy THAT version, ugly as things are.

Drop the 00 for rock salt.
Non-lethal.


Too many legal liabilities.

I have no death wish... but how much fun is it to send a fully trained Malinois after assholes...






I get it is sore point and or my lack of knowledge does your head in but here is the quote i am struggling with, and i get you and phage are having a laugh but you did say the AR 15 is pretty crap and i was wondering how Bryant killed so many people so quickly with a such a weapon...

I'm sorry the mechanics of close range shooting in a crowded room with a high powered weapon are so incomprehensible to you. I can't really dumb it down any more than it already has been.

He wasn't firing an AR-15. It was a Sig-Sauer. Get it right

True... the 7.62 x39 is a nasty round

I get tired of hearing the news media talking heads saying that AR-15's are designed to kill. AR-15's and the like AND military rounds in general are designed to wound NOT kill. Wounding an enemy soldier takes more soldiers off the battlefield than killing enemy soldiers. These kinds of weapons are designed to wound. I don't understand why no one calls them on this more often.

And that's why they train you to aim for centre body mass and not the ankle. ?

You can hunt with an AK pretty well.

You can hunt better with a 3006.
What's the point of a semi when hunting? Miss a lot?

I'm not sure what it's purpose is besides taking a bunch of people out.

You can control an area of real-estate with it. If a bunch of people made the mistake of being in a controlled area ... well ...


Some people setup targets and blast away for personal amusement.

You left out practice. Even if it's only a bolt gun ... you should know, you've gotta practice.


The only other valid category is for warfare. Never is an AR-15 a tool.

I can't think of a better weapon to defend the living area of my home with. When seconds count ... support is minutes away.

You can make an argument for gun control ... but, there's always a rational counter-argument waiting in the wings.

GREAT you don't need one,judging by what you know of them ,stick with crying, there are enough whop MIGHT help.

The AR15 is a good weapon for kids but it's only good for small game. The AR is good for small deer but it shouldn't be used on any good sized game. So Abysha is right some of the hunters should be despised. Here's a good write up on the AR Hunting with the AR-15. Btw how many of these hunters do you think know about barrel twist?

Port Arthur:A guy in Austrailia who shot some people scared them JUST like a school scared the UK into giving up semi auto hi cap fire arms


'A school'??? You mean the Dunblane massacre? A school shooting where sixteen children and a teacher were slaughtered by a madman? Yes, handguns were regulated after that. You know what we haven't had since then? A school shooting.

An assault rife that's not designed to kill???

That don't make much sense, seems to be killing people just fine for such a poor design. How do you explain that???
