I have been thinking of a AR pistol for a while. After looking at them, how do you shoot them? If you hold them like a rifle, does the buffer tube jam into you? If you hold them like a pistol, isn't it hard to handle? I am thinking about building one, but are they any fun to shoot?

Thanks,
Mack

With ear protection.

As mentioned above, just hold it as you would your rifle except that you don't have anything to put against your shoulder. One hand on the handguard and one on the pistol grip, hold the buffer tube to your cheek and line up your sights, and queeze, squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, queeze, squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, queeze, squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, queeze, squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, queeze, squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, queeze, squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, queeze, squeeze, squeeze, squeeze. Then do it again, and again.........

Good luck,

Gene

Just watch "Clear and Present Danger" Wilhem Defoe will show you how to shoot one. He used one toward the end of the movie.

I use the same technique as with any of my other longer barreled handguns.

Hard to handle? If you have no trouble firing a 8 3/8" .44Mag then an AR-15 pistol should be a snap.

BTW. I burnned a load yesterday with my Bushy pistol and I'm still smiling. It was overcast so the light show was great!

I'm sure you're going to love the new pisol.

A general word of warning about ammo and auto-loaders. Some just don't like certain brands of ammo. It's a good idea to buy a box or two of several types of ammo (manufacturer, bullet type and weight) before buying a case just to make sure your new prize will run well.

Yeah, my gun will not run smooth with the crappy mag bushmaster gives with the gun, the spring on it is too weak.

I use a sayeret sling, keeps it snug when slung on back.


To fire just unbuckle the sling extension to shooting length, wrap support hand over sling then under handguard making a tight sling-hand-handguard sandwhich, cheek on ACE padding, and push out with pistol grip and its a stable as any rifle I have.
