Over the years, I've been at best lukewarm on the subject of the AR platform. Mostly, this arose from an outdoorsmans' perspective, where different, as in more powerful cartridges, and more traditional configurations of wood and blue steel held sway.
Those thoughts, however, belong to a better time. 
It is no longer possible to rest in the certainty that one will have an outdoors available to them, or access to even these traditional arms in the future. The agenda of certain groups and special interests, long simply an annoying harangue in the distance, has now found its political footing. For the first time, there is an open agenda that exists in defiance of freedom, in defiance of the founding concept of this country, in defiance of it's traditions, which threatens the very existence of what makes America the great experiment in liberty that it is.
So, in response to the frontal assault on America, launched with popular approval only from small and very vocal circles, I hereby rescind my reticence towards America's rifles, the AR15 / AR10.
It is now vitally important for Americans to recognize the nature of the times we are living in. A light, fast handling AR 15, or a stable, accurate AR10 can and will make a statement regarding the side you stand with. Either will also provide capabilities to secure one's person and family in the days ahead. One can hope that rationality and common sense will prevail, yet it is unlikely that those who prosecute this war on freedom will ever reach this rarified place.
I don't think it's too melodramatic to state that if freedom is defeated here, it's defeated everywhere. It's far better to preserve something precious than to have to reconstruct it from remnants, and the symbol of the black rifle is a powerful reminder that freedom has it's champions.

I SEE LITTLE HOPE. MY GRANDSON WHO IS 27 SAID TO ME:

"PAPA I SURE ADMIRE YOUR GENERATION BECAUSE MINE IS ALL SCREWED UP."  PROGESSIVE/SOCIALIST/COMMUNISTS/DEMOCRATS, CALL THEM WHAT YOU WILL, BASICALLY CONTROL THE MEDIA,ENTERTAINMENT (SO-CALLED), EDUCATION AND GOVERNMENT, EVEN SOME CHURCHES.  KRUSCHEV WAS RIGHT WHEN HE SAID WE WILL WAIT UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO BE PLUCKED LIKE RIPE FRUIT.

Possibilities

In approaching this problem, I've always tried to understand the opposition's point of view. Mind, not necessarily to agree, just to discover if their position had merit, if it had a logic, and a sense of coherence.
Unfortunately, all I can find in the current proposals is the odd belief that demonizing a segment of the population, and attacking them with ever greater restrictions, will somehow make society improve. I find this concept both childish and amazingly stupid.
In the end, movements like this current one promise the Moon, and deliver only greater chaos. It's the chaos part I see looming on the horizon.
Al, I love the pics. Maybe at some point I will have something worthwhile to photograph, but until then, let's celebrate whatever freedom we can still enjoy.
