I'm looking to buy another rifle but can't decide what to get? Should I wait to see if DSA puts out an AUG or SIG puts out a 550? I'd like to get something before the ban expires because I'm sure the new one is going to be worse.

Have you known the government to make anything easier?

I just got a Colt 6400c and love it. I` m waiting for Armalite to chrome line the AR180b`s chamber and barrel. After they do that I think thats next for me. Or it might be a Garand or a Beretta Vertec. So many guns so little money.......

Yes, getting yourself killed for starters but that's beside the point.

The ban WILL go away provided there's no huge one shooting "incident" with killing lots of folks.

Even the hardcore libs know gun control is a losing issue & the ban comes in (gasp) an election year.

I really hope so. But not counting on it

Well, I don't know what to say except that DSA will not produce an AUG before Sept of next year, and you won't see a domestically produced Sig 550 series gun before that time either, regardless of the future of the AW ban.

I suppose the only other question is, what do you already have?  I'd make suggestions but perhaps you already have everything I'm thinking of.

I have 3 Colt prebans (M4, 20" HBAR, SPR)
         1 Krebs custom AK-103 in 7.62
         1 HK 91
         1 Hk 94
         1 Accuracy International

I had a Steyr AUG(black) but had to sell it to pay medical bills. Now thats out of the way I'm looking to get something else. I just can't spend $4500 to replace the AUG.

Ok, that helps.

How do you feel about the DSA FALs?

I just bought my "want to buy" the other day.. I picked up a Romanian Romak-3 (Dragunov) which has been at the shop I worked at... I promised myself I would get it before I quit or got fired... well the shop is possibly closing so I went ahead and bought it... it is nice but I havent had time or any ammo to fire so I havent shot it yet...

Maybe a robinson arms ktr-03

Big bore AR-15 upper!  458 SOCOM! Yeah!  Wooooooooooooo! (wait, that's what I want, heh)

Or maybe it's time to get into reloading?

I think you're wrong, but I hope you're right.
