After revisiting my suggestions for a first firearm, I realized I’ve changed some of my positions and recommendations. Most notably what I suggest now for a home defense weapon – something a lot of folks have been asking about recently.
Hog hunting with an AR-platform rifle makes a lot of sense to a lot of folks, including me. This begs the question, what common AR-platform cartridge is suited to the task? 5.56 NATO, .300 Blackout, or .308 Winchester?
Not all magazine pouches are created equal. There are a lot of good ones and bad ones out there, but I’m really digging Esstac’s magazine pouches which I’ve recently got my hands on.
Hands down, AR-15 rifles are great. The Daniel Defense DDM4 rifles are an amazing top shelf AR-15 option.
If you could only have one rifle to fulfill all my needs, what would it be? At first I thought my answer would be an AR-10, turns out it’s an AR-15.
Every time I’ve attended a defensive firearms course, I have fun and come away reminded that I’ve got more work to do in order to increase my proficiency.
