9 million M16's made

on TOP of millions of semi AR's. :-)

only 6 million garands,

https://www.google.com/search?q=how+...+were+produced

and no world wars to pump up the M16's numbers, either. Which speaks VERY highly for the design and performance of the AR. It's just way superior to the M1 and the M14, even for army use and a lot more so for civilians. YOu wont have uncle sugar to rescue you when you bite off more than you can chew! So you need a silencer and a lot more sense about what you get involved in than the military has to concern itself with. you also aint got 100 taxpayers funding you, like a soldier does.

There's something like 100 Million plus AK's manufactured. Does that prove their superior to the M-16 design? I would take an M-16 every time over an AK or an M-1 Garand. I still own and enjoy Garands and AK's. What's your point?

Some of us shoot both, thus enjoying the flexibility and versatility of different weapon systems while having a good time. Melvin please post your Airsoft load out.

and we did not GIVE them away, either, as China and Russia have done with tens of millions of the clunk.

Wrong again, Melvin. Did you forget about the South Vietnamese Army? I think we may have given them a couple. Also, Australia and South Korea.

Be nice, Terry.

You're letting historical reality get in the way of personal pontification...
