AR-15 AR-556 long gun M&P rifle Ruger S&W Sport II

Ruger AR-556 Inbound!

I’ve my first long gun on the way, a Ruger AR-556 cerakoted in FDE and with a Davidson’s lifetime warranty.  It was this or the S&W M&P 15 Sport II, but I’ve heard that this one is the more refined of the two.

I also have a rail riser and a cheap RDS (red dot sight) inbound, not that either are needed, as the rifle comes with front and rear sights already.

Time to find a rifle safe now, and stock up on 5.56/.223 ammo.

Looking for a good home defense long gun?

Looking for a good home defense long gun?  Some people swear by shotguns but a carbine can also be a good option.  Specifically an AR-15 variant (M4).

I was looking at a CETME-type gun earlier in the year, but I didn’t want to worry about quality and those aren’t exactly light guns (they’re certainly not carbines, either).  What I’m looking for is something like this:

Bushmaster CM15

You can get an instant quote at that site and the quote is going to depend on your location, meaning the price is going to vary between locations.  I can get that gun for between $530 and $640.  That’s for a 5.56mm/.223 long gun!  With a Red Dot sight.

More stats:

I don’t think I’ll be able to get this before the sale date ends (11/30).  I can always wait until the next sale.
