Definitely. If I couldn鈥檛 have an AR, my second choice would be my M1 carbine; and it鈥檚 78 or 79 years old.
I have two M-1 Garand's that would serve me well in the same role my AR's do except for round capability. Both were made prior to 1945. Also my 1935 Nagant revolver would be fine for self defense as long as my attacker was close enough to hit him over the head with it..

From some videos I've seen recently, apparently WW2 battle rifle cartridges have no problem penetrating newer Chinese and Russian body armors. No use using a 5.56mm when all it will do is get absorbed by the vest. New life for an aging icon!
