    Narrowed it to Glock 20 and Bushmaster M4

    My next firearms purchase will be in August when I come back from vacation, and I was look for so final "why you should buy this versus buying that..." answers. If any of you guys have any input please fire away(no pun intended).



    Thanks for all the help for any question I've ever had

    Well, if you are set on pistols, I'd go with the M-4, its a pretty versatile weapon that will serve you well.

    M4 is the military designator for a select fire, Bushmasters are civilian versions, hence not real M4s, so a forgery, hence M-4gery(or Mforgery).

    Never heard that one and I'm military. It's better than not have one at all.

    I've never heard it in the military, but us Marines don't get many M-4s, mostly just around here. Not that the Bushmaster M-4 is a bad weapon in any way, I've got one in the gunsafe.

    Between a 5.56 rifle, or a 10mm pistol, which do you see yourself using more?

    I already know I cannot carry a rifle unfortunately, so that being I be using the 10mm more if you consider times I would carry it and range time. I know I need a good rifle in my arsenal.

    Well, if you are military you and need a good rifle I'd definately go with the M-4, since you should be very familiar with it and able to utilize your training.

    That makes a lot of sense. Thanks for all your help, and if it's in my budget to get both I will.

    That's the best option right there, get both if you can. I used to be content to have just an AK-variant as my go-to rifle, but after boot camp I decided I had to have an AR (thankfully I had all that boot camp money saved too). It just seemed like a waste to me not to have one.

    I think it's only natural for those of us with previous service to have and to hold something that was our every day life defender. Heck--it's second nature. Without my AR-15, I'd be lost---truly. If it were taken away, I would be too.
