"Modern Marvels" on the History Channel is running a special on the development of the M16 on Thursday evening. They called it the best battle rifle ever invented. Tune in. Ray

"Check Local Listings" It's part of the Viet Nam series they're doing. It's "Modern Marvels" and is going to look at the development of the M-16. It's scheduled 10:00 PM Pacific Daylight. That usually means 9:00 PM Central . . . But you should spring for a TV schedule and check for yourself. Sounds like a new feature. The Hist. Channel has covered the M-16 on "Tales of the Gun," but "Modern Marvels" might have more new material.

Good. Thank you for the heads up. We'll be in town for the boys graduation. So, we'll have to tape it.

Here is the synopisis from the historycnannel.com The most powerful assault rifle ever used in combat, the M-16 became the symbol of our lost war--Vietnam--and can easily be called America's most unloved gun. Yet, 30 years after its introduction, it stands as a potent icon of U.S. military strength worldwide. We'll explain how it almost ended up on the scrap heap! TV G 10-11pm EST

Did anyone else laugh at the part where the author of "Dirty Little Secrets of Vietnam" said "People who use the AK-47 are revolutionaries who can't afford the M16." LMAO
