I know these don't pertain to concealment but I thought this would be a good place to ask. I want to buy a new varmint gun and jump into the AR market as well. I've never owned an AR style rifle so I need your input. I'm hoping some of you own a varminter in either of the manufacturers listed. What are the pros and cons compared to a bolt action style rifle (besides cost). I want a .223 and will use it for varmints and plinking. Thanks for your ideas and input in advance.
