The AR-15 is one of the most versatile guns ever invented, making it the ideal general-purpose rifle - easily configured for home and community defense, disaster survival, small- and big-game hunting, varmint shooting, pest control and subsistence hunting. It's also a great gun for target shooting, competition and training, plinking and just plain fun. It's an easy gun to handle and shoot, perfect for less-experienced women and children, with advanced capabilities to satisfy the most expert rifleman. Unless you have a whole house full of guns, each designed specifically to fill one of the many specialized roles an AR-15 can cover on its own, you really can't get along without one. Best-selling author Bob Boatman briefly covers the background of the little black rifle that almost wasn't, then dives right into a detailed examination of the modular design and what you can do with it. If you have ever wondered if the AR-15 could possibly live up to its reputation, or if you're an AR-15 owner who wants to learn the best configuration for your gun, you owe it to yourself to read Living with the AR-15.
