No bias in this article, and accurately written from the point of view of someone without firearm knowledge. NPR, tax payer funded, elitist driven.

The AR-15 is okay I guess. I'd prefer if it was more portable like a Polish Tantal. Yes I know it has folding stocks but it is still bulky.

In Vietnam we used the Military Version of the AR (M16) flash supressor to twist and break the wires on the C ration cases, useful as much more than a gun. Oh, and we shot the enemy with them too.

The cartridge/round is a little small. Buy it in .308 and then you'll have a nice all-around gun.

Except in .308 it is kinda pointless because the recoil is pretty harsh..308 is more of a precision caliber.

.223 is great though for HD against several attackers. I just don't like the platform .223 is often found on which is the AR-15. I know there are AK variants but those are far and few.
