He has an extremely valid point, we spend more time on technology that working on basic field craft.

This guy hit the nail on the head. I matched my LE6920 with only the E-Otec sight and sling against a S.O.R.T. Members M-4. His M-4 with everything but a can opener on it weighed almost TWICE what my Carbine weighed.

On a 'sniper rifle' (or what I'd call a bench rifle), I really don't mind some weight, but I'm not humping it around on my back in & out of hostile areas either.

On my carbine, I absolutely don't want a ton.

I think back to my days as a young infanteer, I was issued a rifle without a scope and actually aim it with iron sights before I squeezed the trigger. I dragged it halfway around the world and back for 7 years and if never failed me and withstood a fair amount of abuse in day to day handling and I could still reach out and touch at 500 yds.

they are never going to do so much as bust a grape, much less fight, so why buy the damned thing at ALL? If they had ANY intent of fighting, the rifle would have a silencer on it, and it would be an autoloader, and they'd have night vision. Cause without that, they'd be caught the same day. Without at least SOME hope of getting away with it, they'll never do a thing.

Melvin, you have silencer's on the brain. Switch to something else. Airsoft pellets. There, a new topic.
