Has anyone read this article on the www.madogre.com site. He really hates the AR and gives tons of reasons for it. What do you think of his views and ideas on this gun? Go to the website and he link is at the top right under the picture of the girl pointing to hand guns at the camera.

I personelly like my Rock River AR a lot.

Try:
www.madogre.com/weapons_section.htm

You should be able to click on that picture and go into the site. I just want to know from some people who have used the AR first hand in all types of conditions if this guy it telling the truth or just being biast.

i like this one too!!!


I’m not sure it needs to be 10MM or anything that extreme, however US ground forces do need something bigger and better than the 5.56MM. The trend we are seeing is that new cartridges are going smaller in caliber and faster in velocity. And hey, that is fine and dandy when it comes to assaulting a Prairie Dog Town. Those little doggies would never know what hit them! The problem is that larger targets never knew they even got hit. Complaints abound regarding the 5.56MM’s terminal performance. (Can we really call it TERMINAL?)


Please don't joke about shooting people in this manner Aimless

George is a nice guy and he knows a lot about guns (just read "Rifle Country" on THR), but he really hates AR-15s with a passion. ;)

There is a whole Gun Industry Sub-Industry revolved around the AR-15. There are so many accessories the AR is nothing more than a Black Barbie Doll for Boys. You can dress it up for a night on the town or a day at the beach in your little pink convertible… it’s fabulous! By the time your rifle is dressed out like one of the guys from the Blackhawk Industries ads… it’s no longer very light. It now weighs as much as an M-249 SAW.



LMFAO

Hummm, well I'm no Combat trained Military man but I can't imagine it could be AS BAD as our "Morman" friend makes it out to be. "Ideal for playing games" seems to be quite a blatant insult to the men and women of our Armed Forces that are liberating Iraq and dieing for the cause I like my rifle, lots of Real Spec Ops poeple live and die for their rifles that make each new day a reality for them, and hey.......Don't forget this "Morman" guy has a right to his opinion no matter how flawed it is


side note: at least he was clear, concise, and honest about his personal evaluations and experiences with the Black Rifle though most of it "makes sence" I'm still building more and more AR's for the future

i'll bet any one of us could show him how terminal a 5.56 round can be.



If the 5.56 sucks so bad against large targets, then he'd be willing to take one between his nipples, right?

What a dumbass.

Read his piece on the Beretta, too. He apparently had the diametric opposite weapons experience I had in the Army. I never had an M16 that failed to function, and I never had an M9 that worked reliably!

I guess that means I should go write a hate-fest on the Beretta M92 now based on my sample of four pistols.....

What an asshat.

He's a flaming moron.

I like his unabashed Frankness and wealth of personal experience

Maybe we could get him to MOD one of the forums

After training I went to a unit that had an Armourer that believed any jam was a personal insult to him… so he used special tools he got from a jewelers and polished every internal bearing surface to a mirror finish.


I made it to this part and then threw in the BS flag. Not much point in reading anything after this.
