    Hahaha...it’s quite arrogant that you think just posting a bunch of words is some sort of proof. Your obsession with this is very odd. Also odd you think a home alarm can’t be heard outside of the house. But obsess away.

    Nope not at all , you made up a story that cannot be backed up by the actual physics of sound desperation.

    If you want to prove me incorrect, have your neighbor activate his inside siren and than post a photo of the actual SPL at your location showing where you are standing using a digital SPL meter, if you cannot do that, then by default your story has been proven to be a lie.

    Wait...let me see if I understand. You want me to ask my neighbor to trip his alarm so I can prove to some anonymous person on a message board that his alarm can be heard outside his home??? Hahahahaha you have issues.
    You stick with this whisper alarm that barely makes a sound that you believe exists. Good luck dealing with this obsession of yours. Weeeeeeeeeeee

    First question: What do you want it for?

    Choosing a firearm is a lot like choosing a vehicle. Do you want a car or a truck? How much room do you need for passengers? Do you want power or fuel economy?

    So let's start with that question. What do you want an AR-15 for?

    The primary causes of ARs jamming are:
    -wrong amount of powder or bullet weight (get a 5.56 and use standard NATO loads)
    -bent feeders on mag (use plastic mags or heavy steel - no aluminum 'GI mags')
    -dirty (learn how to clean it properly)

    If you're really concerned about jamming, get a piston-driven AR or an AK chambered in 5.56 instead. Piston-driven is harder to get to jam, but has lower rate of fire in full-auto, which won't matter for you.

    A simple gun locker will be sufficient to store any rifle. Make sure to screw or bolt it to the studs in whatever wall you place the locker against, otherwise burglers could just steal the whole thing and cut it open at their leisure.

    The OP is thinking about an AR. There are lots of good guns out there and a lot of reasons to buy various ones... But to answer the OP's question, none of the concerns are things to be concerned about. They're reliable, customizable, as big or little as you want a rifle to be, lighter than most wood-stock hunting rifles. Low recoil, easy and fun to shoot.

    You can have very reliable magazines from 4 rounds to 30 easily, and there are 40 to 60-plus with varying degrees of reliability.

    They're just plain fun to shoot. If you are thinking about getting one and you have the price, get one... get two or three even.

    He didn't say it was for a security concern; he simply said he might like to have one. Seems like a lot of folks are answering questions that weren't asked.

    And when the police arrive with their guns, they can have your body and your dogs body removed before the neighbors complain about the smell.

    What exactly is the purpose of this post? Is this a feeble attempt at comedy? 'Cause I hate to tell you, you suck at it.

    The funny part of this is that he thinks his neighbor will come save him.

    Neighbor husband: "Honey our liberal friend's alarm is going off".

    Neighbor Wife: "Maybe he's out of toilet paper."

    Oh please!

    You are not that important, nor is the subject of this discussion and your interjecting to try and pick a fight.

    Tell us again how you concluded the OP needs an alarm and a dog while being completely and utterly ignorant of his living arrangement or security issues.

    Both great security investments to enhance the effectiveness of armed self defense. A bit on the pricy side though. In the long run, far more expensive than a firearm. But great for those that can afford them.

    I don't mean to have triggered you, good sir. A dog can be neutralized by poisoned meat. Alarm systems are sooo unreliable, you are charged a police permit fee to mitigate the cost of false alarms. When PSAP receives a call from an alarm company, there is no crime 90+% of the time. Many alarm companies are on a "no response" list because the authorities just don't have the resources to rush units to what is likely a false alarm.

    Your advice is uninformed and does not address the question asked.

    You can make personal attacks if you like, its just a discussion for me.

    Most PASP's prioritize alarm's as level two dispatches, meaning when units are available, they will be dispatched to that call.

    Unless someone at the prem of the alarm, notifies the PSAP there is a break in in progress response will be code 2.

    From my experience AR-15s don't jam all that often.

    You could get a small standing safe.

    If money is not an object I would recommend the Paul Howe Tactical Carbine by Wilson Combat.

    One of the best shooting schools I've been to is called Front Sight, its about an hour from Vegas in the town of Pahrump. They teach a ton of stuff on handguns, rifles, and shotguns, including AR-15s.
