Check out the Springfield Arms M1A1 SOCOM, The M-14 modernized. Pricey as hell,but something I'm considering for Christmas.

Since I forfeited my voting rights along with my gun rights for defending my neighborhood against crime when the police department didn't have the funds or manpower to do it, I'll let you guys fight it out while I hunker down in my dark little hole and await the outcome.

You can bet I'll be voting this november. We need to get these deadbeats out of Congress who are there only to ride their own gravey train. They are sure not looking out for our country. Between Congress and the Supreme Court they have just about ruint our Constitution. I think they should leave the voting on bills to the AMERICAN PEOPLE...

Harry, don't blame that IDIOT politician, blame the RETARDS who voted for him ! Dollars to doughnuts, I bet he gets re-elected ! All of us oldtimers remember when the USA was a great Country. I see what it has become and feel sorry for my Grand Kids. Even NASA is dead. Men will go to the Moon again, but they will speak Chinese. Now I know how the last Romans felt.
