This one firearm handles every situation I need or want something more than a handgun for, and does it using the second cheapest ammunition you can buy after 22LR, which is also the same ammunition and even the very same magazines that I'm already carrying at all times and have stockpiled. Life does not get any simpler than that. I am never buying an AR, an AK, or anything else, there's no point.
