    4. While most here would prefer to always be armed, there are circumstances that that is difficult. Whether we carry OC or mace, a knife or striking instrument, or rely on martial arts and other hand to hand skills we can discuss it here.

    6. This can be guns for concealed or open carry but also guns that may not be suitable for that purpose like some of the SAA, black powder, etc. They all have a place here.

    7. The AR-15 rifle is the most popular rifles today. Along with other "military style" rifles they are also the most misunderstood rifle in history. If you need one or just want one (or more) this forum is specifically tailored for those discussions.

    8. Rifles other than the AR-15 are worthy and important to add to add to any collection. Those of us who have bolt action, lever or semi-automatic or even muzzleloaded rifles in our collection can discuss that here.

    13. One way to beat the high price and periodic limited supplies of ammunition is to reload. There's a lot of equipment and supplies available with more and more people loading their own.

    15. While all of us carry for defensive purposes and many of us for hunting as well, there are more opportunities today for competition with other shooters. And, many of us like to simply go to the woods or to the range and test ourselves because shooting is good family fun.
