ARP 150 - Holiday Gift Guide


Welcome to Episode #150 of the AR15 Podcast. This week we're talking about holiday gifts for AR shooters.Main Topic: Holiday Gift Guide





ericfine50:  listened this morning - some excellent ideas and comments. I was surprised that no one suggested using an AR with a 14.5 barrel and the Law Tactical AR Folding Stock Adapter. That would reduce the overall length when concealed.

I agree that you should go with an AR that is not budget, because you want it to work when you need it. Assuming that you are needing to get your Trunk/Truck gun because it is no longer safe to be without it.

I would also look to add a Chest Rig (Like the HSP D3CR), Soft Body Armor, and even a Team Wendy Helmet. Extra magazines for your AR, Pistol, and what about a fix blade knife?

JoshBurgess:  How you guys were talking about the truck gun, I'm not sure if I just missed it or you weren’t talking about how long should you keep ammo before changing it out.
