Not a bad choice. Ammo could be a bit heavy to carry but being the .223 caliber, ammo should be fairly easy to scavenge. Can you think of any other pros or cons to the AR15?

Cons:
Bigger than a handgun
Pros:
Lots of firepower, effective cartridge, light for a long gun and I am very very good with it.

Since it's such a popular platform, scavenging replacement parts, magazines etc. shouldn't be a problem.

I would grab my AR but it wouldn't be the only gun because I would already have a pistol on me. Accurate, effective, good capacity, good rate of fire. What is not to like? Mine has a first focal plane 1-4 with lit reticle and light. On 1 power with the reticle on, it is basically a red dot. On 4, you can easily reach out there.

I like an AR but part of me wants to grab the shotgun. Not good for sniping but very good at many other things.

I kinda feel the same but the deciding factors for me were ammo capacity, the ability to carry a lot of it, and easy reloading. Of course, the extra range and precision is nice too.

I usually have a handgun on me already, so if I had to get a second one . . . agree, it would have to be the AR-15. The pistol I carry is chambered in .45 so not uncommon, but heavier than some.
