    That's a really open ended question...

    It would be best answered by what your needs from a weapon are.

    If you're concerned about any potential restrictions as a result of the upcoming elections I'd say go with the AR. If you choose the AR, you can check Zak's site for the article on optics for the AR:

    Both. Or neither. Or the glock maybe, but maybe the AR.

    More information could help with a more definitive suggestion. :p

    Get the Glock. It's a little hard to get the SR into your pocket, a hloster, tour nightstand....

    If you have neither then the handgun would be more practicle. Also, 5.56/.223 is getting more expensive and harder to find.

    If you don't have a good handgun, get the Glock first. Although I'd rather have a rifle in any fight, a handgun is infinitely more versatile.

    If you already have a good handgun, get the AR15. A handgun will never compare to a rifle in stopping power or accuracy.

    Don't base your decision purely on politics.

    It's like asking if you should buy a hammer or a screwdriver. I have to reply by asking if you're planning on using screws or nails? AR and Glock are different tools for different purposes.

    Get whichever one you don't have. Handgun vs. rifle.

    Id say get an AR. But as its already been asked, what do you plan on doing with your firearm? If you want a carry piece, obviously go the route of the Glock. If youre looking for accurate, long range shooting and a good defensive weapon, get the AR.

    AR. I have a glock and I love it, but the AR could be hard to get soon...
    which is a driving factor in my interest in them.
    Ultimately both is the correct answer though. :D
    ARs have more diverse usage IMHO.

    Wow, that's specific. Do you prefer apples or oranges?

    We used to be a nation of Riflemen back when agriculture was king and urban living was a lot less viable way of living.
    So if you live more rural than urban, the rifle.

    BUT... due to our current living conditions or being much more urban, the handgun has become far more common and useful a tool.
    So if you live more urban than rural, get the handgun.

    You know you want both and they both might be on a list of restricted items to be voted on in the near future (never forget that this nation outlawed beer at one time), so I'd get the AR AND the GLOCK, somehow, someway.

    But I'd recommend you buy the one you'll probably shoot the most, politics notwithstanding.

    I own both. The Glock is more practical, the AR15 is more fun.

    Get the handgun first. What are you going to do with a rifle when someone weird comes knocking at your door at 0'Dark thirty? You can stick the gun in your waistband or pocket and be discreet about it.

    Read the posts by the folks who lived through the worst of Katrina. They found a handgun much more useful than a rifle. You can clean up your yard and make repairs to your house with a rifle slung over your shoulder. You can with a handgun in a holster on your belt. You can hide your handgun on your person when you need to go out and about.

    There's many more uses for a handgun where a rifle would be difficult to use.

    That all said, if I know a fight is imminent and unavoidable, I'd much rather have one of my AR15s in my hands. Ultimately, you want both.

    well, you could always get an ar-15 with a quad rail system and a glock with a scope rail and find some way to attach rail to rail. Then you would have and ar-15 with and underbarrel glock

    I know if a anti-gun gets in the White House, the ar's will be really hard to get, and probably so will all other guns, I'll see about selling my Marlin 30-30, for a down payment on eather or.

    I recently went with a PLR-16, rather than a Glock 29. The Glock will be there when I next want a handgun. The way this election is panning out, I fear the PLR-16 will not. Only a slight fear, but there nonetheless.

    I'd get the AR. Another thing, you're talking about a rather large dollar difference. You know, kinda like should I get a Kimber or a Taurus?:D

    Glock first, then get an AR or AK next.

    5.56/.223 is soooo expensive right now you will probably not end up shooting it much.

    Where is if you get a 9mm, 1K rounds is only $150-175. For comparison a 1k rounds of 5.56 is $300-400.
