Most of this Clint Smith video is about how it’s OK to run your gun dry before reloading. Smith — Gunnery Sergeant Hartman for civilians — goes on to list an AR-15’s owner’s two greatest “enemies” . . .
The forward assist (“Why would I beat something into the chamber that don’t want to go on its own”) and the charging handle (“Any time you dick with it or interrupt it you take the potential of screwing something up”). Fair enough? Or are there greater pitfalls to running America’s rifle?
