So they'll use the three round burst instead of the fully automatic.

Not at all! The M-16A1 does NOT have 3 round burst capability. That is only in the A2 model. If they remove the full auto funcion, it merely becomes a semi-automatic, which they could buy at any licensed gun dealer.

"It fires a a .308 round instead of a 7.62x39" M-16 fires a 5.56, the 7.62x39 is what the sks/ak fires.

Hope they spend some time at the range.

the problem being, the gun grabbers have made shooting ranges that can accomodate these weapons, very few and far between. I recently rebuilt a range for a small county in IN to handle the weapons from nearby counties that were too "populated" to allow them.

The rifles were modified to remove the automatic firing capability

Unless they were built on new recievers, the BATFE still considers them machine guns. If the arsenal can do the rebuild for police, why not for sale to The People via the CMP? Hmm?

Although I think I'd rather have a reworked M-14 myself. Oh heck, I'll take one of each.

Uh... wouldn't that make them AR15s? Not that there's anything wrong with that but wouldn't you rather have a new AR15 than a stripped down or modified M16A1?

I would, and I'm sure they would as well. But their cost is considerably lower this way. Possible as low as zero, if the feds are providing the weapons. Even if they had to pay for the new stripped lower, and for the cost of reassembly, they'd still save a lot of money over buying new AR-15s.

Actually, they'll use the M16A4, which is semi-auto only - 1 pull, 1 round.

It would technically only be an AR15 if they had additionally removed the flash supressor - and I don't believe they did.

.308 is the same as the 7.62.

Remember the North Hollywood shootout in February 1997 between LAPD and a small group of bank robbers?
The bad guys were dressed in full body armor and carried fully automatic weapons. Do you remember what the
cops were armed with?

9MMs and 12 gauge shotguns IIRC.

At least until some kind gun store owner passed out some ARs to those hopelessly outgunned cops.

Your tagline says you serve the evil one. Is that true?

7.? ?ianapolis police officers were training to use M-16 rifles, with the weapons expected to be available to patrol officers by the end of the week, officials said.

Plenty of time for practice.

The Pistons won't be in town until 12 -25.

Hardly.

It's called 'sarcasm'. I used that line once during dinner with the west coast Liberals in my family.

No offense meant to you.

Why not cut to the chase and give the cops ground attack aircraft and artillery.

Domestic disturbance on Maple Street? No problem, take out the whole block.

Like Stalin said, "Better to hang 100 innocent men than let one guilty one go free."

Pratice practice practice. You are right. 10 years ago I could drive 5 minutes and shoot. Now I have to drive 30 minutes. People want to build a sub division in every field and whine about noise. Then they put up their dang mercury vapor lights so that my telescope can't see the stars. I wish people from the city would stay there.
