Participated in basic rifle shooting course. Topics which were discussed: ballistics, shooting stance, transitions, magazine changes, double tap. I was using my AKM (AK-47 mod) but there were a lot of participants with AR-15 and two with Kriss Vector submachinge guns (semi-auto).
AR-15 safety is basically a switch that you have to rotate with your fingers in order to switch between “Safe” and “Fire.”
Believe it or not, it is possible to upgrade your safety selector to a safety button instead. A safety button is an interesting but controversial feature. You push the safety button one time in order to engage or disengage the safety lock.

What is AR-15?
The AR-15 is a lightweight rifle with an intermediate cartridge and a rotating lock bolt. To give you an idea of how light it is, the rifle without ammunition weighs less than 6 pounds. Some later versions of the AR-15 were made with heavier barrels, which increased the weight to about 9 pounds. There have been many versions of the AR-15 produced, which have mainly been within the semiautomatic family. But the original AR-15 rifles were fully automatic and could shoot 800 rounds per minute. By the time they were brought to the consumer marketplace, they were made into semiautomatic rifles which could shoot 90 rounds per minute. These rifles are manufactured with lots of synthetic materials and aluminum alloys. The very first AR-15 was created in 1959 by the company “ArmaLite,” which was a small arms engineering company in America. Many people think the “AR” in the rifle’s name means assault rifle, but it actually stands for the name of its founder “ArmaLite.” They built the AR-15 specifically for the United States military back in the 1950s. Eventually ArmaLite had financial problems and were forced to sell the AR-15 design to the firearms manufacturing company called “Colt.” It was Colt that brought the AR-15 rifle to the consumer marketplace, which occurred around 1963. They also own the AR-15 registered trademark, although there have been variations of the firearm made by many different manufacturers and they use their own names for it.
