Re: If you could only have one gun...

Lets see: what rifle has been combat proven in Nam, works in the rain, mud, snow and sand, has won Perry, can make it to 1,000 yds, has ample spare parts, can be fitted with a Gen 3 scope mount, can use 30 round magazines, reloading components on the shelf everywhere, can be used at close and longer ranges for MOD, MOM or MOA hits and is being reactivated for combat in Iraq because of one round stopping power with the correct bthp ammo? You tell me but for me and this house we depend upon the NM M1A. Overbore
