    Ode to the A2 Flash Hider


    To the humble flash hider Uncle Sam calls A2,
    I have a few words of appreciation for you.
    Hiding flash is what you do best,
    You do it as well as all of the rest.
    But somewhere along the way what I've found,
    You fell out of fashion, just tossed to the ground.
    Surefire, AAC, Smith, BCM,
    Maybe you’re not as trendy as them.
    There’s no “Vortex,” “Battle,” or “Black” in your name,
    But you expertly handle the flash just the same.
    Proven for decades, worn and abused,
    In jungles, mountains and deserts used.
    Reporting for duty from sunset to sunrise
    You kept many a soldier’s position from compromise.
    A classic look that’s always a fit,
    You even compensate a bit.
    A mount for suppressors with no special collars,
    And best of all you’re only eight dollars.
    Perhaps the reason I love you the most,
    Is the way you just work without any boast.
    So thank you A2, for all that you do,
    As for me, my ARs will be wearing A2s.

    You forgot the "A3" that was used as a replacement for years by SF when A2 didn't cut the mustard: KAC NT4. I prefer the BE Meyers myself but...
