    I can't say as I disagree with the idea of using a carbine for home defense. I do disagree with the fact that people think it's too much for in a home. There is frangible ammunition available for civilian purchase that addresses the 'over-penetration' issue. Besides, if there's an intruder in your home and the cops get called, you can dang-well bet that there'll be at least one of the cops armed with some kind of a carbine too. Their ammunition isn't frangible!!

    There are definitely worse things. That certainly removes one of the big hurdles that many people face when attempting to set an effective defensive plan.

    Sounds like you won't have to worry about caliber, then. Instead, pick the correct weapon for the scenario and then train, train, train. Congrats.

    The AR-15 for many is just about the perfect home defense gun. Much more manageable than a 12 ga. shotgun for just about everyone. Easier for men, and especially true for women.

    Collapsible stock versions are much easier to wield in close quarters. Much easier to maintain retention of the gun in a gun grab situation. And with the proper ammunition much less over penetration and less chance of exiting the home than any 12 ga. 00 buck or slug round.

    If you have any doubts, I urge you to take a weekend defensive carbine class and you'll really see it come into it's own and know first hand what the benefits really are.

    To say an AR-15 is a poor home defense choice out of hand without any personal knowledge or experience with it is usually based on hearsay and myths from people who do not know any better. Even our swat team dumped their MP-5's in favor of M-4 Carbines with three round burst.

    I agree completely with jwhite75's ammo recommendations. Federal's low recoil personal defense 12 ga. rounds are fine as well.

    Who says that an AR15A2 is not good for home defense? I had no problems clearing homes in the military with this. Come to think of it, I also used M69 frag grenades. Hope she does not read this.

    I Thought 15 124 Gr BJHPs would be more than enough for home defense :/

    Hey guys thanks for the replies. I am now in the mountains of west va visiting a friend and am on the iPhone. Before I left, I loaded up some hornady ballistic tips and shot a few to make sure the cycled properly. Then I left her with the AR and came up here to visit afriend. I will look onto this more with Mrs Rambo when I get home. She does have 2 sisters, but they are taken, sorry. Keep the suggestions coming....thanks guys!

    Heck, if you introduced me to one of her single friends, I'd be glad to get one for her.
