“Reliability” is a topic that comes up frequently when discussing handguns, especially ones intended for self-defense use. After all, if the gun doesn’t work when you need it, everything else about it is immaterial. Some recent events in my day-to-day shooting schedule have had me considering the topic of handgun reliability as a coin with two faces.
With firearm sales increasing all over the country, those new to owning a gun need to strongly consider another important investment: a gun safe. However there are many reasons why one should keep their gun in a gun safe. Here are number to consider:
The AR-15 rifle is once again under fire by gun banners—who ignore the fact that rifles of any kind are seldom used in crime, and seem to despise anyone who dares to own one. Many who are ignorant on firearms even consider the gun a “weapon of war,” suitable for nothing but murder and mayhem.
Contrary to the notion that citizens should have limited access to AR-15s because they are “big scary guns,” a former Navy SEAL is speaking out in defense of the popular firearm.
