Three rounds of lead vs one round and then say 1.5 seconds on the later to re-establish sight lock before I fire the next round.



As far as lethal goes, well if I have to shoot, I am prepared to kill him.....because, after all, I am shooting a gun at him.


You know what they say....."What do you mean, you didn't mean to kill him? You put your sword right through him!"--Swamp Castle King in MP & the Holy Grail.



Even if I go hand to hand, killing him is a possibility......and I must be ready for that outcome if the Fates do decide.

I was a combat veteran in Vietnam and the M16 is identical in every respect to the AR15 except full auto. Itís not a question of which one I would want but they are close enough in capability to be banned.

So let's ban it. As retarded as that whole process is. Happy now? We still get to buy, own, operate them. Symbolism much?

I get that it's easier to argue semantics, but guaranteed that this approach will backfire. Just like whining on about gun grabbers focusing on "cosmetics", well guess what, now the legislation they are trying to pass focuses less on cosmetics and targets the action and form (e.g. semi auto magazine fed rifles). Guess pro gunners won that war, they stopped focusing on cosmetics
"Why do gun folks keep fighting this fight, it's a road to nowhere," Don't agree. It IS WELL WORTH FIGHTING.

"Guess pro gunners won that war," It is STILL being fought.

NO FEDERAL law has been passed, as long as the repubs control at least 1 house in Congress or the presidency, it will EVER be passed.

Some very liberal states can pass laws but I see as Trump keeps getting more and more Constutionalist judges controlling our courts, I foresee may of these state laws being challenged and overturned.

Clinton got the 1st so-called Assault Weapons Ban bill passed. It turned out it had ZERO affect.

The dems LOST control of the house, which they held for 40 STRAIGHT YEARS. many, even dems, said it was because of the ban. Contrary to what the "news' and pundits tell you, a LOT of dems are gun owners.

The next time was when obama tried it and even the dems wouldn't touch it with a 40' pole because of happened the the last time.

"but if an M16 is a combat rifle so is the AR15" Then why don't our military use it in "combat?
