    Why the AR15 Remains My Favorite Rifle

    Hey guys, I took a two day intensive class with AsymmetricSolutionsUSA last weekend. Wow they wrung my 51 year old arse out! But I learned SO much. If you want training with real-deal truly experienced special forces guys, this is the training place for you. It was amazing!!!

    The training made me realize why I really love the M4 Carbine so much.

    And, if I may, let me share a fairly brief video on the platform, which you might find useful to share with friends who have little or zero experience with it.

    I had a Battlecomp compensator put on it, hence the very flat recoil, by the way.

    Here's the video:

    LOL! They're there, Bro, you just missed the best accessory, which is a small switch that engages the Cloak of Invisibility. This is what it looks like when it's turned off:

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

  6. Clearly, my AR-15 (Colt 6920) is NOT among the woods' favorite long guns around here!

    Didn't I see that in the hands of a Klingon Warrior ship captain on Star Trek years ago?

    You need AT LEAST 3 more ACOGs on there. And a chainsaw. Never forget the chainsaw.

    My Dislike For ARs is Purely Psychological

    Never had any reliability issues W/ any of the M16s I was issued; obviously the price was right and the Ammunition was free as well.
    The problem was every time I got to shoot one it meant I had to lose sleep ( & maybe my day off) get up in the middle of the night, ride halfway across Germany ( or Fort Lewis, or Fort Carson or Fort Sill) usually in a snow storm or a rainstorm. get to the range at 4 am and wait till 9 for range control to get done W/ PT and open the range ( did I mention the rain and snow) Eat a nasty MRE for breakfast , a NASTIER MRE for lunch and suck it up for dinner. spend at least 12 hours on the range (not counting drive time) to shoot 49 rounds usually in a foxhole full of mud & the occasional rattlesnake and climb back in the Deuce & a half (did I mention the rain & snow) to arrive at the barrack (usually right after taps) just in time to spend 2 hours waiting for the arms room to open up (for what that was worth) and the rest of the night scrubbing that GD M-16. If I never shoot one again it'll be too soon. :D
    See, it's mumbo jumbo like that and skinny little lizards like you thinking they the last dragon that gives Kung Fu a bad name.

    HaHa! You've been traumatized! I hope the PTSD from those experiences are waning?

    Why the AR15 Remains My Favorite Rifle? Not mine, I still love my M1 Garand. Just busted off a few hundred rounds this past weekend. Gotta Lov IT. "General George S. Patton called it "the greatest implement of battle ever devised." I ain't arguing with no dead general. NO OTHER PLATFORM has as many kills to date.
