The ideal rifle" is an AR-15

AR History (click for details)

The ArmaLite division of the Fairchild Engine and Airplane Corporation, Costa Mesa, CA was established in 1954 for the sole purpose of developing military firearms using the latest in plastics and non-ferrous materials. The AR-15, designed around a slightly enlarged version of the .222 case firing a 55gr projectile at 3300fps, weighing in at 6.7 lbs was accurate and effective to 350 yards..

Project SALVO, a number of studies conducted by the Operations Research Office at John Hopkins University and supported by several contractors, chose the AR-15 as the best small caliber weapon and it was adopted as the M16.

Colt’s retained the AR-15. To this day Colt’s has a model designation with the letters AR, which stands for “ArmaLite”.


NRA's Three Fundamental Rules For Gun Safety

1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.

This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.

2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.

When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger guard or along the side of the gun. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch the trigger.

3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if possible, and, if the gun has a magazine, remove it before opening the action and looking into the chamber(s) which should be clear of ammunition. If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave the gun alone and get help from someone who does.

The Four Rules of Firearm Safety

  • Rule 1 - ALL guns are ALWAYS loaded.
  • Rule 2 - NEVER let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to KILL or destroy.
  • Rule 3 - Keep your finger OFF THE TRIGGER until your sights are on target and are ready to fire.
  • Rule 4 - Be sure of your target. Know what it is, what is in line with it, and what is behind and around it.
  • *Follow all four rules at all times and accidents will never happen
