  4. The AR-15
    Thanks to the Tyrant's demands that we not own these firearms, my timeline of wanting one has been stepped up. I've always thought to get an AR eventually.

    So, my oldest kid is now in high school. I've been toying with the idea of approaching them about setting up a marksmanship program (probably air-gun if on sight as a "gateway drug" to real firearms), just to counter the brainwashing against firearms that seems to be filling the agenda these...

    I'm not entirely sure if this is the best place for this post, but it's the best I could figure.
