Cpl Miller:
I like the avatar picture next to your name of the rifle inspection.
Can you enlarge that one?

Ya the M-14 was a great rifle if they could have only made it lighter...fucking thing was heavy. Lucky for me I got out before they made us use the Mattel toy M-16.

The M-16 was a nice piece to sling around I liked it, was light and seemed simple enough for everyone and as you know many guys never touched a weapon before Boot!

Hey Bob,

Today's battle rifle is what we would have ONLY dreamed of in the 60's. I grew up with the 14, qualified with the BAR. And I'm telling you the 50 ways a power trip as I am sure you know.

And yes I'm one of those whom you speak...bee bee rifle was my pride and joy.. The Marines taught me to enjoy shooting at a whole new level..

I look back and remember thinking I'd never own an M-16 of any type. Today they can be a work of art to build and shoot... Semper Fi my friend
