I remember when I shot an AR15 (my friend's) for the first time when I was a lot younger. I thought "AR" stood for "assault rifle" back then. At the time I had never even been around a rifle louder than a .22 being shot, so when he pulled the trigger I almost jumped right out of my shoes haha. I was absolutely amazed at how such a small cartridge could be so loud. After giving me the basics on how to operate the rifle, it was my turn to shoot it. I was a little nervous about what the recoil would be like, only to find out that there was virtually none. Since then I've come to actually enjoy loud firearms
I don't always get to the range, but when I do, I prefer dosAK's.
They say 5 out of 4 people are bad at math, but what do I know?
