From the Desk of John Rourke – July 6th, 2015

Loyal reader sent in news that Ruger has come out with an AR-15 that can be broke down into a very small and portable package. I see a lot of advantages to this unique characteristic with the ability to store it away in small spaces including backpacks, behind and under seats, etc. See it HERE.

First week of August I will be AFK(away from keyboard). Due to this there will be no posts during this week and I will likely not have the ability to answer any emails. Currently I cannot scheduled posts to automatically publish as I should due to some technical problem. If I get it figured out then that could change things for the week.

  1. Just remember that if you buy any precious metal don’t make the mistake so many do. Have it in your possession not one of those, “you buy it and we will store it for you” places that you wont have access to it when you want / need it. I agree with you that a local shop is the best way to go even if it costs you a few cents more.

  2. While I like the idea of a “take down” AR-15, the MSRP is outrageous, and Kel-Tec beat them to the punch awhile ago,in their SU-16 variants for BOBs, GHBs, and INCH bags. The “concept” is a great one IF, they get the price more inline with a decent profit margin and not financially giving the schnitzel to their loyal customer base.

  3. $2,000 is quite a lot for a rifle that has no more power than a .44 magnum and takes up more space. If you need more than 6, you need a minigun, or a Springfiled .45ACP 1911A! wide body that carries one in the chamber and 14 in the magazine. Loaded with 2 extra magazines, carried on the body (left front pocket) and pistol right inside the waistband holster, 43 rounds ought to solve your dilemma. That is more than enough to back off even your seasoned street animals in a hurry. Now, if you get some 100 round magazines from Surefire, then you’ve really upped the ante.
