    Awesome.

    I bet that pistol with the brake is LOUD!
    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.

    I use; Professional Safety Ear Muffs by Decibel Defense - 37dB NRR.

    Not sure it would be fun beside me.
    But the pistol is pure pleasure to shoot and not loud at all (with proper hearing protection).

    I've got no good reason to buy the carbine.
    Sometimes things don't have to make sense - right?

    Cool Blemish? I don't see no stinking blemish? Milled piston .308 @ $999

    Three employees at the FFL/LGS went over the gun with a fine tooth comb.
    They could find no blem.
    An identical gun hung on the wall with a $1,999 price tag - LOL

    Cool I love the smell of gunpowder in the morning

    Took my .308 carbine to an indoor range a few minutes ago.
    Factory iron sights, without adjustments, easily punched the bullseye freehand with Hornady TAP 155 gr

    100% reliable and smooth as butter - naturally

    All the employees drooled over it.
    Let the Range Officer squeeze off a few rounds.
    He was blown away

    Thanks

    Yes, like most of us, firearms are a passion.
    When things work out it's extra special...

    All the 308 autos and the weight of their ammo require you to either only carry 80 rds or give up the silencer and the rifle rated armor. Both are very bad ideas. There's another 30 lbs of stuff (minimum) to be carried. The basic ammo loadout for today's M4 is 7 30 rd mags, 1 lb each. The gun is 7 lbs, 20 rd steel mags full of 308 are 1.6 lbs each and typically the guns are 2 lbs heavier, too. So say, 10 mags full of 308, 15lbs and a 9 lb gun, 24 lbs, vs 14 lbs. A silencer for the 223 can be as light as 3/4 lb, and rifle rated armor is 10 lbs, basically. The armor and silencer are many times more likely to save you than any power or range advantage that the 308 (supposedly) offers over a 223.
