Shotguns have additional liability in each pellet that does not strike the intended target. The accuracy of a rifle enables an Officer to place shot into the bad guy and not the innocent civilian that may be in the area.

My problem would be giving up an M-14 for an AR-15. .308 in the rural Montana landscape is far superior IMHO.
How about an AR in .308? I have AR's in both calibers, and I agree, I would grab the LR-308 before the .223. It's actually shorter by 2" - but weighs 2lbs. more. I would haul the extra weight for the extra range and energy.
