Mas, Thanks for all you do. I highly respect your advise. In a shtf situation. and i live rural not in the city, which do you prefer or is it just personal preferance. I have a nice Arsenal AK. But i know most all LEO prefer an AR. I'm not trying to compare apples to oranges, i'm just sorta drinkin the AR kool-aid (always wantin what i don't have) and wonder which you prefer. I choose an AK, for the reliability and ease of maintanance. And yes if your wondering i do have others. 12ga, Glock&1911 45's etc. This is not my only home defence weapon. And i would think it's use for out on the property. Thanks, for any imput.
