Ok everyone, A lot of guys I shoot with tell me I have to have an AR in my safe if SHTF transpires. Hopefully not. If it would I know my M1A would take care of me. My thoughts on this are to get an LE- M4 and stick it in the back of the safe or pick up a 20" bbl. rifle so I might be able to punch paper at some distance. Service Rifle. I would like the lower to say Colt on the side , so what are my options. A new AR or look for an older H-Bar. I put the AR type rifles out of my mind since the early 80's mainly because of the weak round so I'm trying to catch up. Thanks all.
