A friend who has a license-to-carry—mainly because he’s in the diamond business—was the other evening extolling the virtues of the AK-47 for home protection. I said what do you want that peasant gun for, when you could have a nice M-4?
Upon which he began a woeful tale of reduced powder in the 5.56 cartridges, and why the 7.62 has more stopping power. Nevertheless, I like the Tavor TAR-21, made by Israeli Weapons Industry Ltd., much better. Compact enough to fit under the night stand, too.
