    One real reason and one secondary. Reason 1 I want one, reason two cash is in the budget to allow it.

    Because there are politicians telling me I don't need one, it must mean I need at least two.

So, to achieve that, yes, you do need an AR.
    I do need an M16.

    I've never been all that keen on the AR 15. The rifle is far from the favorite firearms I keep on hand. I originally acquired an AR 15 solely as a substitute for the M 16 for the purpose of continuing the progression of the U. S. military rifle collection, because acquiring an M 16 was impractical and costly.

    I'm keeping it for that reason and to study and to shoot and, in large measure because traitorous people exist within both the U. S. political system and American society who would wish to take it from me. I don't wish to surrender American liberty. I'm stubborn that way.

    I like em because I like building them, no deep thinking about it; I can right now, so I do right now. If the day comes that I can't, well, they can't find all of em. Just the ones that are serialized. Besides, I've never followed rules and laws all that good anyway.

    I bought my first AR because Hillary said I wouldn't be able to. Deep down, the gun industry must love Democrat politician.

    I prefer an M1A or AR-10 in 7.62X51mm for serious work. I have AR-15s in 5.56X45mm for plinking and my wife's use or other's use in a survival situation. I would prefer one of my Winchester '94 lever-action rifles in .30-30, .45 Colt, or .44 magnum to am AR-15 in 5.56X45mm for home-defense in a survival situation. I have an Alexander Arms AR-15 in .50 Beowulf for serious fun shooting. If I have to hump one through the boonies for days in a survival situation, I prefer the AR-15 in 5.56X45mm.

    I don't have to have AR-15.

    I prefer my customized AKM to the AR platform... I actually had an AR lovin' RO drooling over my rifle at the range last Thursday. After I let him fire a few rounds, he told me he had to have one.

    I also prefer the 7.62x39 to 5.56/.223 as well... But I do like the promising 6.8.

    Slight thread drift here, but yeah, the 7.62X39 and especially the 6.8, in any of several guises, appeals to me in semi-auto carbine type rifles.
