    an AR-15 as a hunting weapon.  Rather you just said I am offended and said good day.  Very telling. As for my reasoning as to why AN-15 is a lousy hunting weapon...see link in the first comment in this thread.

    Basically it has to do with muzzle velocity and bullet size and the fact that the impact energies of an AR-15 drop very quickly above 100 yards, making them lousy hunting weapons.

    •  AR-15s aren't restricted to a single caliber (3+ / 0-)

      AR-15s can take different caliber uppers. You can hunt with an AR-15 outfitted with a 6.8 SPC, 6.5 Creedmoor.  .243 Winchester, 300 Blackout, or 7.62x39 upper.

      And coyote hunters seem to have no problem hunting with the .223/5.56 round.

      You made an unsupported assertion, along with several outright falsehoods and personal attacks against those who disagree with you.

      Once you devolved to those dishonest tactics, I saw no more reason to attempt to engage you in discussion -- you showed that you were not interested in honest, adult debate.

      I thought I made that clear -- my bad if it was not clear.

      Of course, I never said I was offended, either, so I guess it didn't really matter if I was clear or not, you had no intention of responding to what I actually said.

      Yes, I often dress as a pirate. Your point?

    •  Plus tumbling rounds are designed to maim not kill (0+ / 0-)

      A wounded enemy soldier takes him out of action and also causes the enemy to care for and feed a non combatant. In war, oftenit is better to wound than to kill.

      In hunting, never.
