If you had your mind made up on all of this why did you come here to ask questions?

That is one thing that really gets me. You ask the questions then dismiss all the advice.

I can tell you one thing I would not be caught with that contraption in CA.

Not sure why you want it out of a safe or cabinet. That is just asking for trouble in my eyes. Even having them in sight in a gun cabinet with glass is asking for trouble anymore. I live by the it is better to be safe than sorry. I have had 3 guns stolen from me and they were all my fault and they were in places that I said no one would look.

If you can think of a hiding spot so can the bad guy.

From what I can see on their very rustic website, it looks like Kaiser Defense products are pretty expensive....but, then again, I don't know them.

They are based in...of all places...California!

The Kaiserworks

There could be, I agree with that. It's really down to how safe is the area you live in and maybe other security factors as to whether you could get away with doing so and not attracting unwanted attention. I can easily see both sides of this debate since indeed, a nice firearm will make an almost irresistible target to a thief, but if you really and truly believe that your home won't be broken into, and never has in many years of living where you live, then I can see mounting a particularly proud weapon on the wall.

Thoughts like:

"That's the sweet baby I'll trust my life with if I have to"
or
"That's the sweet baby that won me the match"
or
"That's the sweet baby that nailed that 35 point mutant stag"
or
"That's the sweet baby that will rid the world of zombies when they invade"

Are the thoughts that lead to wanting to mount a specific weapon for display, and I can obviously sympathize with those thoughts, they all go through my head as well. Well, maybe not ALL, but at least some

In all seriousness, 100% of my defense is based on fear of the coming zombie apocalypse

Back to the topic at hand.

When I went to the range, we weren't allowed to shoot the AR. indoor range doesn't allow rounds 3000 fps or something like that...

I did ask all experts there what they though of the AR-15.
2 guys (who owned one) said not configured like this for that price
1 guy store owner said not constructed optimally and that price is fair but wouldn't buy it.
1 guy who is currently in the military said, would never buy an AR-15 and he's around them every day. (1 exception was if it was gas-piston)

So... I'm leaning toward no?

Get's expensive as she prefers slug & buck

Dzscubie... I KNOW! The roof of the building now leaks. No she didn't just pull-the trigger that's her "fighting stance"

moshpit, My wife would agree with your last thought.



UPDATE on ORIGINAL TOPIC:::
99% sure i won't be getting the gun.
I will take it to the outdoor range on Sat or Sun and kill the ammo i bought for it.
Probably will go the complete opposite direction and get a Kimber 1911 base model.
