Why do you own an AR?

It's my right
It's dependable
It's accurate
It's fun
It's going to save me and my families life one day

those are just my excuses..what are yours?

It's a marvelous piece of American Engineering.

And it's badass!

Because it make Dianne Swinestein juump up and down like an organ grinder monkey and pee her pants in fear.

Because I thought it would fit the bill for a lighweight coyote/praire dog General Purpose rifle I could take camping, have fun at the range and still be able to mist varmint kong.

Ill be damned if it didnt do all that...

I like all the answers so far.

I own one because one day I may have to fight for my Life, my Freedom, my Home, my Family, and my Country.

Maybe not in that order.

Sounds a little far out, doesn't it.

I own several AR-15's because:

1) I can.
2) The first weapon I ever handled, fired, and learned to maintain was an M16A1 and I
wanted something just like it.
3) I like the technology.
4) I like the versatility; multiple calibers, barrel lengths, and stock styles.

I bought my first for the cheap ammo with more of a punch than .22.

Because a cunt bitch in my state said I could not.

Because I wanted too.
because I can.

1. it pisses my old dad off , he's a hard core garand-m14 fan from his army days.
2. I like'm!
3. chicks dig it when I whip it out!
4. can shoot a lot of ammo for cheap, and my shoulder don't get sore.
5. makes antis or trespassers quiver and quake (maybe angry) either way they leave in a hurry.
6. accurate semi-auto.
7. low recoil so my kids enjoy shooting/hunting with them more.
8. black matches my wardrobe.
9. their heathier, they keep me broke so I don't smoke or drink anymore.
10. they fill the void in my collection like no other rifle can.

You've obviously thought this through, I especially liked the "chicks dig it" part.
Link Posted: 10/15/2004 8:16:33 PM EDT
Because black is beautiful.

Because you demand instant respect from tresspassers who you run across when you are hunting. They are very polite, no BS and use short simple answers to your questions. And the 16 year old kids shit their pants when you find them drinking ber or screwin.
Link Posted: 10/15/2004 8:30:05 PM EDT
Because they`re fun to shoot & they fill the gap between 22 rimfire & 308.
Also because my grandsons would`nt stop bitching until I bought one.
"But Honey, I`m buying it for them to shoot!!"
Link Posted: 10/15/2004 8:34:17 PM EDT
Because I can, and it pisses off liberals
Link Posted: 10/15/2004 8:39:25 PM EDT
...because every American should.
Link Posted: 10/15/2004 8:44:51 PM EDT
Because it is a symbol of american freedom...

and of course it looks cool too...

Because its politicaly incorrect .

Because it protects freedom.

.....I like to piss people off
Link Posted: 10/15/2004 10:09:01 PM EDT
I like to tinker with stuff, and the AR platform is so easly modified and readly customizable. It has Low recoil and ........ ya da ya da ya da

Because they are cool dammit!

Link Posted: 10/15/2004 11:02:30 PM EDT
same as yours

and its a good gun
Link Posted: 10/15/2004 11:04:12 PM EDT
Because you can do anything short of skeet shooting with an AR platform, and I already had a shotgun
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 2:47:07 AM EDT
1) reason was becasue of a fasination I've had since abuout 4years old when I first saw one.
2) reason was because after I shot one, I had to have one.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 3:00:58 AM EDT
Because at the local gun range, when we carry two or three to shoot, it always guarantees us at least three tables on either side of us will stay clear.

"DADDY LOOK AT WHAT THAT MAN HAS" My god son lets go home. Thay have a machine gun."
(actually heard that one day at the range) IDIOTS!!


Oh yes, and they are wicked great rifles.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 4:36:14 AM EDT
I'm an old single shot, big bore fan and I'm new to the AR (about 6 months now) but after these last few months some things are clear:
1. For pure shooting pleasure nothing beats the AR!
2. 40 rounds per pound means you never have to run out of ammo!
3. Nothing else feels as good in your hands!
4. Nothing makes you feel like spending money like an AR!
5. It might be impossible to have just one! (I'm ordering my second lower this week)

What an ingenious mechanism!

Becuase it prepares people for taking care of a child, give it lots of love and attention, and clean it every time it shoots.
