    No, I won't be attending the AR's long foreseen funeral.
    It's coming sooner or later. Probably sooner than you think.

      JC, the AR-15 is on thin ice in Canada. Check out the firearmblog.com below.

        Like handguns, ARs are restricted weapons up here. Requires a special license with training and exams. Also special storage and use regulations. Restricted weapons can only be used at a registered range. No hunting. No extended magazines ... for any guns. I have heard nothing about the government or public being dissatisfied with the present arrangement.

        I would prefer that we be able to hunt with restricted weapons and really can't see why that couldn't be accommodated. One must phone the police and notify them that the gun is being transported to and from the range. Why not simply do the same thing for hunting? I wouldn't have a problem letting them know I'm leaving the house with my handgun to go hunting and then notifying when I've returned. There is no concealed carry up here ... and there is relatively speaking almost no violent crime with handguns either.

          I was mildly interested n the Remington Model 81 Woodsmaster Autoloading rifle in .35 Remington when I first took up hunting, but the price was too high.
          Then while serving in the army, I developed a distrust for semi-automatic rifles.
          I agreed when I heard that John Dillinger said he didn't trust dames or automatics.
          I own several semi-auto handguns that enjoy shooting at the range. No semi-auto rifles, but I can see a role for semi-auto shotguns, where a stoppage would not be a disaster.

            Honk, All those regulations are because Canada is full of sheeple.
            The original M-16 was junk, in '65 if I hit a target about 4x4' , 30 times I was considered expert. I was at the range last summer and a competitive shooter was shooting with me on the 300yd range and his target was about the size of a playing card and his group was about 2" - don't know if it was a .223 or 5.56. they shoot AR's at Camp Perry to 600 yds. Todays AR's will be around a long time and is a fine tunned machine.

              I looked at Pal Arms and they took all rifles and parts off the market - that was right after the shooting.

                Folks who proclaim the reliability of semi-auto firearms always add a qualifying "if" toward the end that calls for a lot of detail stripping, cleaning, lubricating, etc.

                    My thoughts exactly. I've been looking into getting a lower receiver and building one.

                      6phunter, I wasn't interested in them either until my eldest bought one.

                      I hunt with an AR10 and AR15.

                        Not so. It sounds like you are saying that Glock owners don't have to know anything about "malfunction clearance drills."
                        There are videos on youtube demonstrating how to handle the major types of malfunctions encountered with them.

                          Yes, and once upon a time the Supreme Court held that "separate but equal" was a constitutional right. When was the last time you saw a drinking fountain for whites only? The day of reckoning for the 2nd Amendment is nigh at hand. I suggest getting behind sensible gun legislation or risk having the 2nd Amendment become a stuffed dodo bird: still there to look at but not alive.

                            I just did a google search on "Glock stoppages" and came across a thread on the Firing Line Forum. The OP complained of frequent stoppages with his Glock pistol.
                            One comment that caught my attention said, "If you don't disassemble the slides on your Glocks and clean them every so often, carbon, grit, brass shavings, etc. can get in the striker channel, and cause it to fail to fire.
                            "It is important to keep the striker clean."

                                Be aware that you can't "mix 'n match" AR10 parts. The AR10 isn't "mil-spec".
                                Be sure your lower is "DPMS" cut.
                                Much easier to find the appropriate parts.
                                AR15 and AR10 buffer tubes are different and aren't interchangeable. Goid luck!
                                Have fun!
