Girls With Guns: 10 Reasons Why the AR-15 Is Popular With Women

By    |   Tuesday, 14 Apr 2015 02:12 PM

The AR-15 or Armalite Rifle is often incorrectly referred to as an "assault rifle." Gun enthusiasts often collectively roll their eyes every time the media uses the term deceptively. It is the most popular sporting rifle in the United States today, particularly for girls with guns, and here are 10 reasons why:

1. It can be very easily customized and accessorized in countless ways without necessarily requiring the services of a gunsmith. Many girls with guns often build personalized AR's themselves.

2. It has very low recoil, which is a very attractive feature in a rifle

3. The AR-15 is reliable and easy to clean and maintain

4. They come in multiple calibers, such as .223, 5.56 & 308

5. The AR-15 has been in existence since the late 1950's, so it’s reputation is solid and consistent

6. It can be purchased for as little as $500

7. It is often used by girls with guns in sport shooting, competitive shooting, hunting and home defense, so its versatility makes it very appealing because one rifle can cover several different applications

8. It is relatively inexpensive to operate, as ammunition is readily available and costs as little as 28 cents per round.

9. Standard magazine capacity is 20-30 rounds making it attractive because it doesn't need to be reloaded as often. This is especially appealing when attending tactical shooting schools such as Gunsite Academy or Academi Training where students shoot a large number of rounds per day.

10. Lastly, the AR-15 has also gained enormous popularity among girls with guns because of the anti-gun movement and their continued push to take it away from law abiding citizens. When you tell people they cannot have something, it only serves to increase the enthusiasm.
