    How many of us have stockpiled some AR15 bandoliers? I am sitting here thinking of various situations, especially with the coronavirus (COVID-19). Worse case situation friends and family members bug out to the farm and I arm them with an AR-15, or other weapon. So what about magazines? What...

    How many AR-15s, AK47s, FALs... are enough? The title of the thread is battle rifles. Lets skip the semantics and splitting hairs and group all semi-automatic medium and large rifle calibers together. If it was designed for a military role since the 1940s, how many are enough? The issue...

    A local gun store has a used Bushmaster M16 A3 in stock. It has the removable carry handle, 20 inch barrel and standard front sight. If I remember right, asking price is around $500. Rifle seems to be in ok / good shape. I did not break the rifle down and look at the inside. Just looked at...

    I took the plunge and bought a Palmetto State Armory freedom upper. The price was right. Now I have to see if the quality is right. From what I have been reading, the Palmetto State Armory freedom uppers are made by PSA, but are not chrome lined barrels. In all reality, how many shooters...

    Dogs were sleeping last night when something set them off. They started barking towards the front yard. I was not quit asleep, rolled out of bed, grabbed the AR from its resting place, chambered a round, went out the front door naked, surefire lit up the front yard,,,, and there was nothing...

    Who will be your best friend in a post collapse TEOTWAWKI situation? AR-15? Nope. She is more like a girlfriend that wears a lot of makeup. AK-47? Nope. She is a country girl with no makeup. But will work. This one gets the job done. Shotgun? A workhorse that is reliable and a good all...

    I'm looking at constructing my first AR build over the next few months and I've been searching around for a lower to start with. Since I'm on a budget I've been trying to keep the expenses (not including FFL transfer) to under $100. I've been thinking about going with one of the Anderson Arms...

    There are probably tens of thousands of these upper receivers collecting dust all across the nation. My AR-15 upper made during the assault rifle ban is off a Bushmaster. 1:9 twist, no flash hider, no M4 feed ramps, no bayonet lug and heavy barrel (not M4 profile). I have put a lot of...

    AK 47 for SHTF apocalyptic terror and mayhem and what not. While I served with the mighty AR and love it, I am going to change my primary to an AK. 1. It's just cheaper to train with. Ammo is half the cost (and I reload) 2. It's heartier in the field. I am disciplined with field cleaning...

    Over the past few weeks I have been thinking about getting an AR-15 chambered in 9mm. The main purpose of the rifle would be for predators around the farm - coyotes, opossums, foxes, raccoons,,,. Why would I want a 9mm for small animals? Mainly for noise. When I start shooting the AR in 223...

    So after a year and about 500 rounds my Sig M400 has remained flawless with zero malfunctions with any ammo I feed it. Took my young men to our 100 yard range and let them get some practice in... 3 hours shooting. What a joy to see them shoot and shoot well This AR shoots just as good if not...

    http://www.ruger.com/products/ar556/models.html Haven't seen a thread about this yet. Store price will be around $599. Looks like a nice entry level AR from a quality company. What's not to like? Other than there doesn't seem to be a front sling attachment.
