AR 15 for sure, just don't feed it crap ammo and keep it clean. And buy American.

Just take the AR, it can be used to take longer shots and clear buildings.

The "don't feed it crap ammo and keep it clean ****" is getting old. It's not true and has been proven so over and over.

sorry for the double post, you know, i have heard time and time again about the AR is more reliable now. i have yet to see a DI AR get buried in muck, picked up, and run off a whole mag yet without it being a freak occurance like "one time, at gun camp-"

How about blown up, shot, dropped from a helicopter, thrown in a small pond, buried, dug up, then shot w/ minimum to no POA POI shift? And anyway how often do those things actually happen? When was the last time you saw a person accidentally bury their rifle. I've never seen it happen outside of YouTube videos.

I accidentally buried my M4 while living in a hole for 2 weeks in Afghanistan. The sidewall collapsed and buried my rifle in the process. It was buried for about 36 hours before I noticed. I was busy observing through the scope on my M107. So yes, you can bury a rifle.

I believe it can be said about any gun.

*points at greg* hopped out of a 7 ton only to have my sling catch, break, and rifle lawn darted into the dirt/sand. had to bore punch the hell out of it.

dug a fense post with the barrel of my AK. ran 1 round through it and cleared all that sh*t out. no side affects what so ever.

rifles are not trophies, if i have to treat it like one to work in ungodly conditions, it aint worth it- well to me anyway, or whats is it, IMHO?
