There is a digital repeater near me, there are only a couple people that use it. I personally don't think the audio sounds that great. Certainly not enough to justify the cost and the fact that its a fringe area with ham radio that few utilize.
The solution here as a gun owner is to purchase as many mags as possible, get another AR.
Give it as a gift to someone.
While the numbers currently are proof of common use, fortifying the militia's stock of firearms and mags that these f***ing tyrants want to take away, is one way to fight...
