Edition 67

  Comments: None

I hope you and your team are well and continuing to prepare.  2016 is shaping up to be an interesting year.  If you’ve been considering the purchase of an AR15 / AK47, I would strongly encourage you to invest in one soon.

Don’t forget the indispensable items like red dot sight, ammunition, sling, ammunition, extra magazines, ammunition.  And don’t forget ammunition.

I have strong and hard earned opinions on what makes a good AR… not so much on the AK.  Just don’t have the trigger time on that platform.  If you want to know what I think a good AR looks like, let me know.
Be sure to put in the e-mail how much you’re willing to spend.  Don’t put this off.

On the subject of .223 / 5.56 NATO ammunition:  If you can, buy FEDERAL M193 or PMC Bronze 223A for training and general purpose shooting people.  If you need to shoot people on the other side of barriers, like cars and walls, get FEDERAL M855 (‘green tip’).  If you need to shoot people on the other side of barriers in style (and can afford it), keep a mag charged with Remington HOG HAMMER or Speer GOLD DOT.

In my opinion, you should stay away from the Russian made ammunition.  Not only are there QC issues, but the bi-metallic projectile is hard on the bore.  See the test here and decide for yourself:  BRASS v STEEL

I hope you and your family are blessed in 2016.  Please continue to train and get ready; physically, mentally and spiritually!
Train hard!   Put God first!
