During the course of TTAG’s relocation exploration, I met up with Army vet and TTAG writer Martin Albright in urban sprawl Colorado. After patiently waiting for your humble scribe for an hour-and-a-half (sainthood pending), Martin demoed and shot his new AR. As usual, I mega-flinched during the initial firing sequence. If you must know, I was also nervous as hell firing the weapon; I acted like a total newbie. [Second video post-MORE.] “Bullets face forward.” I knew that! The AR-style gun is a hit because they’re so damn easy to fire with .223 ammo: gentle recoil, maximum accuracy. OK, so I only got one round on the target at 50 yards. But it went in the black. FWIW. Martin’s grouping was, as you’d expect, as tight as an F. Scott Fitzgerald socialite (in the jazz age sense of the word, obviously). The AR’s trigger pull was crisp, clean, light yet refreshing. I gotta get me one of them guns. Or more. Meanwhile, kudos to Martin for building such a lovely piece of machinery that didn’t blow up once.
