    This article began about 20 years ago when I started stockpiling AR-15 magazines for some kind of SHTF / TEOTWAWKI situation. My buddies and I would make trips to the local gun shows, and pick up magazines here and there. I never intended to stockpile hundreds of magazines like some hardcore...

    Man oh man, what a weekend. In a previous article we talked about survivalism as an experience and not just a theory. This past weekend was to expand my experience, and to improve upon my theories. Part of my prepping for SHTF / TEOTWAWKI includes going to the Bug Out Location for a couple of...

    Vertical vs angled AR-15 forearm grip, which do you prefer? I am not a professional in body positioning, nor do I clam to be a professional in anatomy. This thread is intended to discuss natural positioning, and what feels "right". Consider this thread as my opinion, and nothing more. If...

    Did a search but really didnt find much on your guys opinion on which you like better. I have a Bushmaster M4 Gas piston but wondering if i should buy a Gas impingment one also in case of any reliability issues. Your thoughts?

    Right now the Colt 6920 is available for as little as $933 (Cheaper Than Dirt). When asked what AR15 rifle I recommend for less than $1k, I point folks towards the Colt 6920.

    So I'm ready to buy my first AR and I think im gonna go ahead and get an LE6920 in the next few days. I'm wondering what the best ammo is for the Colt. Seems like different rifles like different types of ammo. I want rounds for defense of course and rounds I can just burn thru on my berms when...

    Tell me what you think, and be honest. I am thinking about getting it for myself as a christmas present. http://www.dsarms.com/AR-1R-Flattop-Carbine-Rifle-556-Nato---DSZM4CV1R/productinfo/DSZM4CV1RCL/ If you know of a better AR in the same price range, please make a suggestion. Keep in mind...

    The elitist will have to make some more room in the club house. Stag is offering a new "plus" version for an extra $100. All same spec's as the Colt, LMT and other "milspec" players. Spike's offers a version aswell. http://www.stagarms.com/information.php?info_id=13 The more players, the better.

    Anyone had a chance to test it out? Or own? Reports please!!

    This article is presented as my "opinion" and should not be considered as scientific fact. I know this topic has been covered a bunch of times, I figure 1 more thread aint gonna hunt. Is the AR-15 a good survival rifle? The simple answer is, “it depends.” The M16 223/5.56mm was original...

    I'm looking for a rifle for my wife which would be an easier fit for her to shoot?

    Perhaps someone has mentioned this, and if so I apologize for being redundant. The May 2010 issue of Guns and Ammo Magazine has an interesting article on the use of the M4 Carbine in Iraq and in Afganistan. It was an interesting evaluation written by a retired LAPD detective who is a current...

    I broke down and just ordered my first AR, a Colt LE6920 from Buds yesterday and sent in my payment today. I also just finished ordering some Hornady TAP ammo and 2 PMAGs. I feel great knowing I'm a little more prepared in terms of having my defense covered. So far, I've got most of my bases...

    So, in light of all the bad things that seem to be unfolding, yesterday I finally broke down and bought my first AR15. I am an ex-Army infantryman and am very familiar with the M16A4 and already I'm in love with my new AR. It's a StagArms model 2. Haven't had a chance to get out and play with...

    I have decide to invest into AR15 aka M16 plaform. Most people i know are into the Carbine version but I wanted the full size platform 20" barrel since 5.56x45 would perform better in it's original design. Looking into gunbroker seem to be not much demand on Full size AR rifle ,mostly carbine. I...

    I really want to buy my first AR 15, and I'm concerned about prices. After a lot of research, I have decided to go with a Colt LE 6920. I saw only one at an Atlanta area gun show yesterday (April 2009) selling for $1800. I tried to get the price down but the guy wouldn't budge, and said he sold...
