Okay I hate the AR15, but thats to be expected since I hated the M16 as well in all of its variants. And do NOT get me started on how the M4 deserves a special place in Hades!
I can give you all the reasons, from the caliber to it being a direct impingement system, the never ending crap that folks hang on these toys, or simply the fact that it was not a .30 in a garand style action.
I could point to M1s, M1As, M14s, FALs, and even many of the AK variants…a whole host of “real guns” for men whom did NOT have to wax their legs and shave their vaginas. For 34 years I have not felt the need, desire, or inclination to shoot or own an AR.
But yesterday my wife talked me into shooting ARs with her and I have to admit I had a lot of fun. She gave me that FN and I gotta admit I liked it. My students and club members want me to design and build a Hogan’s alley style AR course and I am seriously thinking about it.
Maybe ARs aren’t so bad?
Or as my wife says…“can’t guns just be fun?”
