Well, we can certainly all agree that using a weapon is a last resort but that was the assumption all along.  Wasn't it?   :shrug   Asking me what I think a "Budget car gun" should be will either get you a serious answer like I posted originally or a flippant one like:  "Its the gun you found in the center console of your Budget rental car, silly!"   :cool

    Actually security, just like the police, aren't legally obligated to do any butt kicking (chewing bubble gum is purely optional) or even any intervening if they choose not to.  Regardless I would recommend some type of legal defense plan (CCW Safe for example) just in case you do have to use a firearm, or even if trigger is never pulled, you will be thanking yourself for the 150.00 yearly investment for that protection because you won't be stuck with insane legal fees (most even cover your bail).

    Now back to choosing a budget AR...if you are looking to buy something complete because you don't have the tools (or even the desire) to build your own carbine, what you can do is buy a complete lower and a separate complete upper.  That way not only can you shop for the best price on the lower, you can pick what ever configuration upper you want.  Also to help combat thievery you could keep the lower in a backpack and that way you can carry it with you in to your work and not have to worry about losing a firearm (the lower is considered the "firearm" part of the AR) and also it's non-functional by itself and pretty non-threatening if anyone happened to see it.

    As much as I hate to say it, socal might be right. You belong there and these vagrants don't. As a loyal employee you have the authority to encourage the security to chase them off. I would still carry the pepper spray and hell, even a handgun, but it is your job to punch the clock on time. It is security's job to kick butt and chew bubble gum. As long as there is not: intent, ability, and jeopardy projected from the threat to you, let the security risk it's safety to keep the grounds. That's what they're there for anyways.
