Dunno - I'll stick with my FALs and NM Garand.

Call me old fashioned. Call the enemy out there at 400 yards dead.

Garand...yeah, the Garand...you know, it's funny - I'd always heard that one of the reasons that the M-16 was preferred to the .308/30-06s was that its lower recoil was less punishing to the uninitiated, but when I finally got to fire a Garand on a regular basis I really started to question that. I consider myself pretty chicken when it comes to recoil but the Garand is a sweetheart in that respect. Maybe Patton knew what he was talking about...
