Where do you live? As far as I'm aware you can technically own one in all states, but some have strict laws about what they can look like or have on them so you might be stuck with a "state compliant" one with a funky stock and a fixed magazine. If that's the case, get a Ruger Mini-14. It can do almost as much as an AR can and I'm sure by the time the next ban rolls around it'll be included as well.Can’t own one I waited too long.
With upwards of 15 million of them in private hands I'd say whoever is keeping track on public message boards has their work cut out for them. It would be easier just to do a reverse IP search of everyone who ever logged onto MagPul's or Brownells' websites.Some on here might not admit to one as its a public message board...
I still need my FAL, I have 30 mags but no gun to use them in!By all means, get one. Much like a toilet plunger or toaster, everyone should have one. Why the hell not? However, after you've picked one up, then also get an FAL, or M1A, or PTR-91 - or all three. Every man, ahem.... patriot, should have one of each of those as well!!!!!
Well they actually make them in multiple calibers these days.Never interested in one. 5.56 is a varmint round and not really of Interest. Then they came out with a 300 Blackout and things got interesting.
The 300 Whisper has been around for decades. It wasnt until AAC basically copied the caliber, renamed it Blackout and got SAAMI approval.Never interested in one. 5.56 is a varmint round and not really of Interest. Then they came out with a 300 Blackout and things got interesting.
That man is going to seem pretty moderate by comparison to the ones vying for the presidency right now if one of them manages to get in. Obama was no friend of gun owners but he didn't really try that hard to go after us. But Harris, Booker, Warren and especially Beto have made it their mission in life to end private gun ownership in this country, starting with AR-15s. I'm sure even Biden and Sanders would like to do so as well, but fortunately they're both so old they would most likely sleep through most of their time in office.This man convinced me I should buy one back around 2012-2013.

I think what 400cor-bon meant is that outside of personal defense, target shooting and varmint hunting the 5.56 is limited in its use. In other words it's not that great for hunting medium-sized game and in fact is illegal in some states for that use. Since I don't hunt and only want something for inexpensive recreational shooting it's a great caliber for my uses. However others may prefer rifles with more punch and I respect their decision.No matter how many people say that, curiously enough, NONE of them, have ever volunteered to step in front of one. :scratch:
If it's a "varmint" round, surely it shouldn't hurt that much... :dope:
