The 15 ?

Ben Framed:
This fellow gives some reasons why the 15 is so popular for hunting, shooting , and self defense. He is from California. I know very little about these and can honestly say that I have never shot one.  This video says that the 15 will shoot a 223 remington along with the 556 mm nato round. But as incognito  pointed out below, that is not the case unless stamped on the barrel. So I have edited to add incognitos  warning. Thanks Tom

(WARNING: CHECK THE BARREL MARKINGS! A 556 can use 223 also but not the other way around.
I felt compelled to clarify that.)  Per incognito

Ben Framed:
Yes you are correct. This fellow explains the difference. I am glad you caught this Tom.

jalentour:
I can honestly say, I have never heard an AR-15 referred to as "The 15".
I disagree that the AR-15 is a home defense weapon.  The round will go thru the bad guy, your wall, and your neighbors wall.
The AR-15 was designed to maim first kill later. 

incognito:
There are arguably better defensive weapons for inside the home.
It is better suited for guarding the perimeter or deterring guys coming up the driveway.

The Federal government once considered them for personal defense.
But note how they avoid the sensationalized media description.
