I never understood the big deal with them and the LA media calling them cop killers? All of LAPD wear body armor and the last thing you want to get through body armor is a splading bullet. You're far better off with a single brass jacketed slug then a flowering slug. Media, dumb as dumb can be.

Didn't they chase down hollow points and hydro shock rounds next?
I don't know about that but I got a box of those hollow points filled with pig meat. You know ... Cause terrorist hate pigs. Lol

More for novelty.

They are fun to shoot at a range. And if you are a collector that could be another reason. There is a place in Indiana where they have a CQB range. So I mean you could use it. There is CQB competitions, there is range competitions. Also, its a solid weapon platform that as you know, is the most popular assault rifle in the US.

I can think of any number of reasons why people could validate a purchase of an AR. I do see your point, that it has one purpose and one purpose only and thats to kill.

Yeah, I'm not against assault rifles at all and in my eyes everyone has a right to own one if they want. There are a lot of people that enjoy tactical match shooting for sure. But, it really is a single purpose designed weapon and it's really good for that. Short of that I just think it's a waste of your dough.

You should look at the 7mm-08. You can get the managed recoil bullets from Remington that are a 145gr. It will have the recoil of a 243 but with a heavier bullet.

Depending on the size of your boy, I would look at a youth sized gun to get him started. Hard to go wrong with .243 for a youth sized gun.
