I built my first of my AR Pistols about 20 years ago. I think that I’ve always wanted them to be a good idea, but between reliability issues and legal gray areas, they haven’t been a viable option to recommend to the average person for home defense use. Recently, the BATFE re-re-established their position on both the use and installation of Stabilizing Braces on AR Pistols and the shouldering of them like one would shoot a traditional AR Rifle. In this video, I offer a thorough overview of my thoughts on the topic of AR Pistols in general and the potential ramifications of the BATFE’s latest letter re-clarifying their position.
