my son went into a rather high end gun shop here last week. he was looking for parts for our AR. and just to go in and see what they had. any way while in the shop a tiny older lady came in and wanted to look at a high end AR 15 totally deck out with all the frills. the man who waited on her ask who it was for, and she told him it was for her, she wanted it for home defence. she had heard it was the best thing to have. the sales man was nice to her and tryed to steer her to a shotgun in 20 gage or s handgun (I thought was pretty nice seeing as he would be loseing a big sale for a smaller one). but nothing doing she had to have a AR. didnt find out how it turned out, my son left before they were finished.
