Mine is a semi auto ST-15. But to Obama and Feinstein, its better known as "a weapon of mass destruction and I'm labeled a terrorist"

PA-15 and M-15SA , guess Im in the clear
M-15SA oh yeah Semi Auto imagine that. What amazes me most is that people think AR stands for automatic rifle .
WTF chuck I always thought it stood for Armalite Rifle , Guess I dont know SH!T and have been misinformed

It just shows us once agin how stupid the media is. If you put the government in charge of the Sahara dessert there would be a shortage of sand in 5 years.
Its a Sport Utility Rifle (SUR) ...

AR stands for ArmaLite (ARmalite), the original company also made a couple shotguns - I think the AR-8 and AR-17 - and today's ArmaLite has pistols with the AR prefix. Anyway, ArmaLite, ArmaLite Rifle or American Rifle - I'm happy with any of them.

In fact one of the CS people at ArmaLite has for his a signature "AR stands for ArmaLite"
