I apologize if this is the wrong forum to put this topic in, but I wasn't sure as it involves two types of different firearms. Anyway, I have a Colt LE6920 (civilian M4) Magpul Edition and I was looking at a Springfield-Armory Loaded 1911 in stainless steel. I was hoping to get some input from different people. I really like my AR, but it normally just sits around collecting dust. I don't get to go shooting too often, so it's mainly on home defense duty. I have heard, though, that a handgun is preferable for home defense due to the fact that lugging around a rifle at night may be problematic. On the other hand, I may not be able to get an AR in the near future, due to that new bill that was just introduced (H.R. 4269) that will prevent me from obtaining an "assault" rifle. What do you guys think?
