A friend and I were just discussing our favorite guns and if you could have only one, what would it be?

Fal is my fave.


So who else prefers a heavy ass .308 to a light, ergonomic and accurate ar15?

a couple primer blowouts resulted in some nasty gas cutting on the bolt face, so I need a new bolt and have to reheadspace it.

Leave here now and take you're foreign, european rifle with you!

The only .308/7.62x51 I can justify you having is the American M1A/M14.

Link Posted: 8/13/2005 5:54:35 PM EDT
I like my AR-10 myself

Think I'll add a poll .308 vs. 5.56

Given the choice, (but they are banned here in Britain) I too would own a FAL, well actually the British L1A1 SLR, a superior FAL!

ANdy



I love the l1a1, the folding rear sight and the folding cocker is the shit. That regular cocking knob pokes me when slung.

Love them BOTH, just don't let one find out about the other.

Guns. Girls, Cars, Boats - all about the same

+1 on the Yugo Mauser.

But now that it's become a caliber question, the best caliber is .30-06.

I would go with the 7.62 x 51mm (.308) myself!

Gotta love the Mak pistol (or PP-AK submachine gun if we were allowed to import them, etc.)

But if the SHTF, AR-15 all the way.

The "FAL vs. AR15" has already cost me too much of my life, in sleepless nights and days of indecisiveness.

Thanx for bringing it up again.

AR-15. Shot my friend's select fire M-1 on full auto. Muzzle rise was uncontrollable and recoil in general was not conducive to follow up shots. In short, I couldn't hit shit with it.

Select fire full auto M1????

Don't believe we talking about full auto anyway.

I dunno, .308s are great and all, but if push came to shove I'd reach for an AR every time.

If I ever need to use them...I can't use em all. Might as well train with what I have :)
Link Posted: 8/14/2005 8:16:37 AM EDT
5.56 here, though if I had an AK/FAL/M1A that might be a different story. My 60gr hollowpoints should do well on bad guys though.

yeah but that is what makes them such a joy to shoot, not much recoil and they are very easy to hold steady.
