Outside of military service, have you ever fired an AR or AK style firearm?
Yea they're awesome
It's not about need. Do you want to?
Yeah, I own a few of both.
Ive only shot a pistol, and a shotgun.
AR, AK, SKS, shotguns, handguns, etc
Many times 😃😃😃 best times of my life
Why is that sad?
Because, I believe the best times in your life should involve spending quality time with your family (kids, wife or girlfriend/boyfriend) and getting to know them and what they enjoy, what makes them happy......of course maybe you don't have family. ...
I'll be honest with you, I liked it because, it was with my dad. He and I, loved going to the shooting range together. That's why it was the best time.
Then, I would pose that if you haven't fired one or at least been around one fired, you don't really know enough to be promoting a ban on them. And the YouTube video you see of people tricking them out to fire rapidly (while not fully automatic) and the nut jobs who rant about "taking my guns" isn't really the best research you could do. I own one and use it recreationally at the range, would hunt wild hogs and could (but won't) use it for home protection.
