556 Tactical. There booth was a shooters dream. There were AR-15's and accessories all over their tables with plenty of people to answer everyone's questions.
My brief conversation with Colin that day led to an online interview to give this blog's readers deep insight into the scope and possibilities of what an AR-15 platform can do for you as a disabled or handicapped sportsman.
Colin - What is the best is a rather broad question, as each shooters abilities and disabilities will vary, what makes the AR platform unique is that it too can be modified to help adapt and be more comfortable to that shooter than some standard stock over the counter rifles
HCO - Why is the AR-15 platform so good for the handicapped or disabled?
|556 vs 22 Long|
HCO - What non-AR-15 weapons would you recommend as a gun smith for someone who is handicapped or disabled to give them excellent power to cleanly kill a deer while not having their shoulder severally bruised by the recoil?
Second, which was just made legal this year for hunting is a suppressor. While the movies portray these as quiet assassin killing mechanisms it's not quite the case (again it's the movies). Personally I hunt hogs with a suppressor, for two reasons, one is ear protection, with a suppressor I do not have to worry about my head getting rattled and the inner ear ringing from shooting within the confinement a of a deer stand which amplifies sound tremendously, the second is recoil management as it greatly reduces recoil (I use a 308, 6.5 Grendel, 300 blackout or 6.8 spc typically and in AR platform), let me add one more one of my shots is 300 yards from gun to feeder, at that distance with a suppressor the sound is dampened quite a bit and can allow me to take down more than one hog.
