    Default If you could only pick one

    If you could only have one SLR for sport shooting (3 Gun/ Steel Challenge etc) and range fun, which of the following platforms would you go for:

    1. AR-15 (.223)
    2. AK (7.62x39)
    3. AK/ Galil (.223)
    4. FN FAL/ R1 (7.62x51)
    5. PCC (9mmP) - AR, Ruger, CZ Scorpion, Beretta CX4 Storm etc.
    6. Other (Specify)

    Please state the reason for your choice.

    New to the sport, so opinions are welcome. Thanks!

    CZ Scorpion:
    1.) Can be licensed as handgun (in some cases), leaving room for SLR licensing without issues;
    2.) Very reliable and trusted brand;
    3.) Modularity, Magpul making lots of accessories;
    4.) 9mm cheaper to shoot, easier to reload;
    5.) Can be used in PCC as well as other disciplines;
    6.) damn sexy :)

    PCC, ammo cost and versatility.

    Good points. It is one sexy carbine.

    Concerning point 1: I believe the loophole has been closed. Even if it's not, I would rather do a proper application as licensing takes forever now and I would not want to risk having it rejected for silly reasons.

    1. AR-15 (.223)

    Never owned one (but sooo want to get one) but have watched a ton of Youtube videos and listened to the opinion of those who have owned.

    Low recoil, which means quicker firing, accurate, still packs a punch, ammo isn't as expensive as say 7.62x51, accessories should be easy to come by.

    You say you are new to 'the sport', but which sport is this? The Steel Challenge I attend is handguns , .22 and shotguns afaik I've never seen anyone smoke and hope with a FAL.

    I'd choose PCC (And I do shoot PCC ) because I am mostly a handgun shooter and grabbing a box full of more cheaply reloaded and compatible ammo is much easier in terms of planning

    I own AR 15 and CZ Scorpion
    Can't remember last time I used ar.
    It noisy, expensive and more cumbersome to handle than PCC.
    PCC fun and CHEAP to use.

    I do mostly tactical shoots at the Black Duck shooting range. Would like to get into Steel Challenge (the one at Cecil Payne and Guns@Work) and 3 Gun Competitions.
