Why?
What useful purpose do those weapons serve you, other than letting you put up a little better, but ultimately short-lived fight against the government, should that day ever come?
If you want them just because they are fun to own and shoot, that's good enough for me. The 2nd amendment says nothing about the arms needing to be practical. But are we just arguing the principal of the matter on gun rights when we get "up in arms" so to speak, when percieving a threat to ownership of these weapons? I'm just curious about the ownership ideology involved with these weapons, since there's been so much talk of a ban lately.
They are both fun rifles, which is the best reason to own them. They're also both handy to have if the need should arise for you to protect yourself, which is the second most important reason to own them.

These people are taking their cues from states like California, where these rifles are illegal because they scare the uninformed masses who allow spiteful politicians to dictate their opinions to them. As a firearm owner and enthusiast, you should be concerned with the combination of Pelosi and Biden. Do some research on them and prepare to cry.

You had to get the SOCOM, huh? Good luck on that, I hope yours is a Wednesday rifle. I would like to take the 556 for a spin though.

How pissed is your wife?

I HAD to have the Socom. I've read lots of good reports on it, I'm going to take it for a spin and if I hate it I can sell it and probably make a few bucks on it! I mean if Gary hates it he can sell it. I'll let you know if it functions or not.

My Wife was with me, I felt like Tim the Toolman when she said "go ahead hunny, it's probably a good investment at the moment"! I lurve her.

I know that it's a trap when mine says something to that effect. Hopefully I can get my M14 ordered before they're banned. I'd hate to spend all of that money on a rifle and have to bury it in the backyard.

The 556 is just plain sexy.

Let me know how she handles when you hit the range.

Will do. It's got a good feel to it, I think the plastic mags that come with it probably need to get tossed in the trash and the iron sights are pretty terrible. The shop had the Sig pistol grip/light already on it so I purchased it with it, it's a pretty shuweet setup.

That's thanks to paranoia. Obama has done nothing to limit the availability of magazines yet.

I really do wonder what goes through Obama's head as he reads all the articles on how gun sales have increased dramatically. You think he realized he is in for one helluva fight when it comes to gun control?
