Ok great, I need all this info.

The AR would be say an all rounder, the odd competition and fun gun as well as defensive if it ever comes to that.

Tactical HQ has 2 11.5" guns. My thought behind that was that with a can, it's not as long.

BUT from holding the different AR's 16" does not feel that long as I thought. And being a total noob it does feel more comfortable with an extended arm C-Grip. If that makes sense.

My main focus is IPSC Pistol, so I don't think I will compete as much in rifle, But I will compete for sure as I love the sport............

Then I start competing more and more, and the 11.5" is not adequate anymore.........

Ok.....SO.......for NOW I am back at the 16".

Thanks guys.
