More people than not say the Prostar is a impractical boat and it is if your looking for a "boat". But when used as we love to use them they are the perfect boat. And if you make a list of the ways you can use them the list is more than one or two ways long. The AR-15 can be looked at the same way.

Correct, as I said, more holes. more ammo, more rounds down range. My good friends that made it back from front line war on terror really wished they had bigger rounds. The terrorist do not care if their brother is laying in the street. They just let them lay there and rot.

I love my AR, but just not because of its effectiveness.

The M16A2, M16A4, and M4 are all select- fire, 3-round burst. The M4A1 in current use is select-fire, fully automatic.

The .223 was originally selected because of it's high velocity, low recoil, and because a rifleman could carry more rounds of .223 than 7.62/.308. Current 5.56 M855 is an effective anti personnel round (high velocity tumbling) at medium range. As a home defense weapon the AR15 is superior IMHO due to its better accuracy, better followup shot capability, and better maneuverability, not to mention the capability to mount a light, a supressor, and fast-acquisition CQB red dot sighting systems. Appropriate defensive round selection and an AR15 over-penetrates significantly less than buckshot (or handgun ammo, for that matter), either in tissue or sheet rock.

Yes, I do. Most would agree that its a cost-effective AR15. It has its shortcomings and wouldn't necessarily be on par with Colt/Noveske/DD/BCM, but it's reliability is better than the usual run of consumer-grade price-point rifles IMHO.
