Provided some AR-15 training for a few great guys this afternoon and evening. Enjoyed it tremendously! Love shooting that little black rifle, and teaching others how to make it sing!

Some old fellow who's put a gazillion rounds through various AR-15's, M4's, and M-16's:


Couple of the guys training with me today:




Dang, I like my retirement job!

Nice. I had some time on a 500m popup range this past week with an M4. The targets were tuned to go down after multiple hits - a surprise to me. It was a whole lot of fun.

Haven't shot an AR since 1970 when I was in the Army at
Fort Campbell Ky.

Great rifle, especially for training troops who never fired
a rifle before. We shot at silouette targets at 300 meters
from a foxhole w/ peep sights and easily hit them; most of
the time.

They just legalized them here in PA for varmint and
predator hunting but I have no plans to get one at my age
but if I was younger I'd consider it.

I used my personal AR t introduce my sister-in law to centerfire rifle. You're right, excellent for the novice shooter.

I realize that this type rifle is THE most popular centerfire in the country, but I loathe the very sight of them. Wouldn't own one if you gave it to me.... Ok. That's it. No long drawn out nuthin'.

Attention to all posters - If you were going to give Ranger an AR, you can instead send it to me

Having served in Vietnam from 69 to 70 I can't say enough good
about the AR. I'm glad I carried it for awhile rather then an M14. It
was light as a feather, easy to carry and had a good rate of fire. Last
but not least it allowed soldiers to carry a lot of ammo without being
weighed down.

But, I don't see a big use for them now. I own a Colt 6920 but to be
honest it has only seen about 100 rounds in the 5 years I've owned
it. I just don't see much use for it in the hunting I do. What I bought
it for I hope I never have to use it.

I hear you Joe - I enjoy shooting mine. Once in a while I'll even take it out for a coyote hunt. Not sure there's a better coyote rifle for around here.

But... What I really have it for is for "just in case."

Just in case bad things are happening and this old fellow right here finds himself in dire need of something that an AR-15 is really good at doing...

I hope I never need mine, but I'm glad I have it.
