It’s all in good fun.

I did carry the M16A1 in Nam, not my Daddy. So I can’t get over the experience and will never trust those suckers. However, seriously, if the police want firepower over drug gangs and body armor then I think they would be better off with M1As. The .308 is far more devastating and auto-fire is way overrated anyhow. Aimed .308 AP fire would put down gangbangers in pretty short order IMHO.

Just joking with ya, my dad and his brothers are Nam vets as well. I have heard first hand accounts of special operators taking AKs off of dead VC and throwing their M16 out, lol.

I like the M1As, but I think the .308 cartridge is more for a main battle rifle while the 5.56/.223 is an intermediary round. The M1A Scout is a pretty sweet rifle, though.
