Equipment Review: Hunter Rifleworks AR-15 HBAR Upper

Backstory Those who have read John’s article, The Case for Duplicate Guns, can well understand the advantages of having “doubles” of certain firearms available. One day earlier this year I found myself looking into my safe and realizing that I had only one “true” AR-15 carbine (gasp!). How was this possible? I thought these things […]
