    I may have to break out the popcorn, or at least a second cup of coffee.
    This has been informative (especially about the FAL as well as the M14), and, at times, really funny.

    Is it remotely possible that experiencing the same fluke from three different manufacturers FAL's- that the actual fluke might be you?

    When I shoulder an M-14 it feels like a rifle. It's heavy, it's long, and it has a little spunk to it when fired. I know this is certainly a subjective opinion, but that's the vibe I get from it.

    An AR on the other hand is lighter, more ergonomic, and much less feisty when fired. Finicky more than an M-14? Eh, maybe so, but not enough to deter me from designating the AR as my go-to weapon.



    As much as I like the M-14, my grab-and-go is a top-notch AR. With the best of modern ammo available in 5.56mm to feed them my AR's are what I would rely on if I had to. That said, I don't have any doubt that M-14 rifle would put down what I hit with it (assuming good shot placement of course).

    Not sure how to measure "spunk". What unit do we use?
    And what is the terminal effectiveness of "spunk"?

    It's what you want it to be.

    Pretty sure you have an idea what I meant by "spunk", seeing as how I was talking about a 7.62 weapon vs the 5.56mm one I mentioned right after that.

    I literally own certain weapons because leftists hate them. I have an M1A because the shoulder thing goes up. I have an underfolder FEG SA-85M because Feinstein used one to show off how horrible it is.

    LOL you have a point there! It is literally the "shoulder thing that goes up"!
