One of the Great Debates that we will be talking about this month is the ever lasting battle between the AK-47 and the AR-15. These two rifles have been mortal enemies since the dawn of time. Each rifle has many pros and a few cons people always argue about trying to decide which is the superior rifle. I dove into this debate head first and gave my opinion on who was the superior winner in this heavy weight battle!
The other one of the Great Debates we will talk about this month is the everlasting battle between Smith and Wesson's M&P series and Glock. To make this an even battle I specifically chose the latest versions of these two polymer frame pistols along and chose the full size equivalent of each. In this battle it's the new M&P 9 2.0 versus the new Glock 17 Gen 5! Which one is the superior pistol? I guess you'll have to read more to find out!
