I wouldn't mind performing a search. For public safety of course.

I don't think it's possible to determine from that picture. The selector switch is not visible.

Re: Guns on Board

Minaret said it was an AR which is not selective fire
and, to my knowledge, not a military weapon.

Lets just split hairs here! Come on, everybody knows AR is a generic slang term for that entire family of weapons, just like AK describes the hundreds of models of Kalashnikov.

Except Armalite doesn't make military M16s or M14s whereas Kalishnakov does make AKs.

An AR is a semi-auto, an M16/M14 is not.

In some circles the AR 15 is often wrongly considered the same as the military M 16 which it resembles, at least to the untrained eye.


Leaving the politics out of it, I don’t know anyone who uses the term AR to generically describe real military weapons because, unlike your AK analogy, they are completely different.


I now see the point that you were trying to make and I’m guessing that we both might agree that it is pretty hot to see a bikini girl carrying a bad a**weapon that she actually knows how to use.

Re: Guns on Board

You guys have no idea how hilarious I find this argument!



AR is just a current military acronym for "automatic rifle", nothing to do with Armalite. An M14 is a completely different animal than an M16. Of which there are countless variations, military and civilian, with every sort of fire control group imaginable. AR describes all of them. Just like AK describes the countless variants of Kalashnikov.


Lets not clutter up this rare "gun thread" which has been polite and helpful with little interjection of unnecessary claptrap with more semantics. It's probably not the right place for it.

Nope. Click on the link but here is the money quote:

The "AR" in all AR pattern rifles stands for Armalite Rifle[12], and can be found on many of the company's firearms…

AR-15 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you are really interested in the subject you can go here:

Assault rifle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Now shall we get back to hot chicks with automatic rifles?

Everything you typed is just so categorically incorrect I'm literally at a loss.

Wow. Talk about uneducated or naive or both.

Re: Guns on Board

Are these rifles not a Canadian derivative?

Re: Guns on Board

I think this thread has set a new record for "NOT TRUE!!!" replies.

Really. I suppose one could look it up or Google the stats.

I agree with the OP about NOT going into the entire issue of whether or not to...

It appears that the ONLY real question remaining is what consititues your "home" as far as this OP's questions, simply because the entire REST of the discussions have been about individual States' laws (please notice where the apostrophe is placed after the word State...)).

So...I ask, why not simply go a firearms website to answer that question? 'Cuz it pretty much, by now, has little to nothing to do with boats.

Is this reasonable, or am I missing something?

BTW, good luck and safe journey.
