Alvin, Nice try. AR does not stand for assault rifle. I spent over 20 years in the Army as an Infantry Officer. Long before Colt bought the rights to what is now the M-16, the Fairchild ArmaLite corporation developed the AR-15, a smaller version (5.56 mm) of the AR-10, which was a 7.62 mm weapon. Colt bought the rights to the gun and made a ton of money selling the M-16 to the Army during Vietnam. The civilian version is still called the AR-15, which stands for ArmaLite Rifle, not assault rifle.

This is a good article but I live by the adage that one should chose the largest calibe he/she can accurately and safely handle. The AR-15 is essentially a large 22 calibre (.223). I prefer a 45 calibre for home defense and 30 and 45 calibre rifles for hunting. But to each his own.
