Subject: What Your AR Says About You
( by Doug Howlett -Since its creation by Eugene Stoner in the 1950s and initial adoption by U.S. military forces during Vietnam, the AR in all its variations (AR-15, AR-10, M16, M16A1, M4 and more) has been used to kick the arses of countless enemies, both real and on the big screen. The rifle has evolved into one of — if not the — most versatile and reliable long arms in history, experiencing a shocking rise in popularity among American shooters. Its ubiquitous role on the range, in pop culture and in the hands of our most-capable military has left an imprint on the shooting world that likely can’t be measured.

The AR you own and how you customize it says a lot about who you are, whether you use one to compete in 3-gun matches, tote one through the woods and prairies in search of game, or just want one around if intruders (or zombies) ever decide to invade your turf. So, we ask: What kind of AR owner are you?

Find out what your AR says about you:

I've owned a half dozen AR15s in my looooong life, but found each one to be more of a pain the behind  -and that includes the wallet I keep back there- than I could stand. Yeah, they work. Yeah, they're phenominally accurate. Yeah, they look totally cool. Yeah, you get to choose from more options than you do with a new car. Yeah...Yeah....Yeah...and so what?
I bought my first AK 47 a couple of years ago. What fun! Simple. Cheap. Minute-of-Liberal accuracy. Rugged. Easy to clean, if you care to. Ammo is "Cheaper Than Dirt." And no shortage of configurations or optional accessories. And all for HALF the price of a decent AR.  
So, what did my ARs say about me? They said, "Bye."

I guess I fit 3 categories. The plinker, I plink with both the 5.56 bolt carrier group in and the .22 CMMG conversion bolt. The competitor, I compete once a month in a local Tactical Rimfire match which is lots of fun, for rifle I alternate between my trick out 10/22 and my Spike's AR with the .22 bolt carrier group in it. The survivalist/prepper, I have more .223 and 5.56 stashed than anything else for SHTF scenarios.

Looks like I've gone from...
"The Operator" to "The Home Defense Specialist" to "Plinker"
