So I'm looking at an AR pistol. 10.5" in 5.56 It will serve as a fun gun and something to carry while wandering around in the woods... To defend against 2 & 4 legged attacks. I like to put my range toys to work sometimes, currently my hiking gun is a pps43c in 7.62x25. But its a little bulky, more weight than I'm looking for and part of it digs into me no matter how I sling it. I've always been curious about AR pistols and I've found one I like so I'm selling my PPS to raise the money. I already have had many ARs so this seems an easy choice. What experiences have you all had with them?
