    Yeah that was mentioned earlier. The whole argument that two guys have to carry the wounded guy off the field, taking 3 guys out of action, whereas the dead lie as they are, so killing only takes one person out of action.

    The other argument I've heard is that the 5.56 was intended to be a suppressing fire round only. Basically, since it's smaller and lighter, SAW gunners can carry more of it. It's not meant to be deadly, it's just meant to keep the enemies' heads down, while riflemen armed with .308 battle rifles can get into position to actually kill them.

    At risk of another repeat: "don't worry, the safety's on". Usually stated when there is a loaded gun on a bench pointed either down the line of shooters or at the backs of those checking targets....

    The above are things 'gun guys' say about shooting AR's that make me cringe.

    I saw that thread, it is one big cancerous tumor if I ever saw one.

    Evidently car doors have too much resale value here...

    Butt:

    "It's not loaded" as a response to being called out for poor muzzle discipline or for weapons with closed actions lying on benches and pointed down the line or towards the parking lot.

    Sorry, guys. Bad weekend. Lots of safety violations at pubic range. Left without shooting Sat. Sun, thought things ok until I witnessed an nd impact within a foot of the shooter's foot....

    Back to daybreak raids for me...

    As cheap as I am, I am strongly considering buying a membership at a private range (and I am pretty cheap).
