I wanted to bring my 10/22 with red dot, but ended up using my AR-15 with the EOTech. With irons, the AR actually is sighted for 200 meters, no? Not very familiar with the AR family, unfortunately, more familiar with the Mini-14/30 family.
But yeah, shooting rifles was more fun and fulfilling than standing there punching holes with a pistol for some reason.
