New Class: America's Rifle - How to Select and Outfit Your AR-15

The AR-15 is the most popular rifle in America. That's because it's designed specifically to be modular and readily adaptable to any number of uses, from hunting to competition to self-defense.

However, it can also be challenging to understand and sort through all the options given the huge number of manufacturers, calibers, barrel lengths, accessories, price points, and other considerations.

BFA supporters have told us they'd like a class to cover all these basics to help them choose their first AR or give them the know-how to make better, more educated choices as they buy or build additional rifles. So that's just what we've done.

It's called America's Rifle - How to Select and Outfit Your AR-15.

This is a class for novices and more experienced gun owners alike, who want to purchase their first AR (or an additional AR) and would like to know more about how to select the right make and model, plus tips for outfitting the rifle with appropriate accessories.

The class will cover key topics such as:

  • Definition and origins of the popular AR-15 rifle
  • Common uses for this platform, including hunting, competition, and defense
  • Caliber options with pros and cons of each, including .223, 300 Blackout, 7.62, and others
  • Gas systems and how to choose one over the other (rifle, mid, carbine, and pistol)
  • Brands available and what you're getting for your money, including high, mid, and low-end options
