I don't have an AR. Maybe someday. But it'd be a hassle. I'd have to stock a whole new type of ammo and whatnot. Plus I never have gotten over the whole use of a semi-auto .223 when I have .308 just lying around.
I'll get over the reluctance someday.
You know I keep coming back to the old impractical pistol carbine. You see where I'm going with this?
What about my FIRST AR being a .45 carbine? I have .45ACP stocked. Intriguing... While I'm at it, put a suppressor on there. Ooo, now we're getting fun.
Yeah yeah, pistol caliber carbines aren't 'in' right now. But it's not like this is the goto gun for social purposes. It's a fun gun. A souped up Marlin Camp Carbine. With a suppressor on the subsonic round it would fill a niche, yes. It would scratch that carbine itch I've had for ages, and permanently. I'd spend as much on making a custom lefty bolt .45 with a suppressor as I would for a AR setup, and with the AR I can still have access to a boat load of accessories (not as much as a .223 variety, but still jillions.)
Points against it... Man, but that's unconventional behavior for me.
ZOMG Climate Change!!!11!!eleventy!! - Study predicts Sun is headed towards a Dalton-like Solar Minimum around 2050 . I'll be just over 100 then. Better move south from the mountains of Georgia...
