AR-Style Rifle

Image 2 of 10

It’s of course fitting that on America’s day you should find an opportunity to shoot America’s favorite rifle. Within the past decade plus, the AR in all of its many forms has become without question the most popular rifle in this country by a large margin. It’s lightweight, familiar to many due to its military roots, easy on recoil (in 5.56 NATO/.223 Rem.) and cheaper to shoot than many other centerfire rifles. It’s also incredibly versatile, seeing use as a hunting rifle, a tack-driving target rifle or a personal defense carbine. You can certainly use the AR to punch paper over the Fourth, but if you really want to have some fun – and you’re able to do so where you shoot – set up a course of fire with steel targets rated for centerfire rifle use. Use a timer and compete against your friends and family to see who can engage targets the quickest and earn bragging rights. There are of course many options to choose from, such as this new Springfield SAINT.

The list covers a mix of guns that are fun, and in some cases both fun and relevant to our country’s history. It is designed to be relatively broad and inclusive, but does get slightly more specific in some cases.

This list is in no way definitive, nor is it prescriptive. It’s just good fun.

There are lots of fun guns out there. That’s why many of us have large gun safes and more than a few firearms. Some are on this list, and some are not.
