I only have experience with the 92FS when I was in the military.
That was the limit of my experience and I used to think they were dog shit.
Then I got discharged and bought my own.
Turns out they're actually very nice guns when they fuckin work.

Pro Tip: When you've shot so many bullets the rifling is worn down to nothing, you should probably go ahead and retire the gun.
Or at least replace the god damn barrel.

I dont know if too many of you heard but Beretta made an AR.


It was expensive and not well received, looks like they are going to retire it after just a few years.
I tried to find one and couldnt, eventually gave up looking and purchased a Bren 2.

Wow... it looks a lot like my CX4 Storm.

I'm aware and have fired one. I wasn't impressed at all. Felt like a toy with all the plastic and there's nothing nice I can say about the trigger. Granted it's been years since I shot it the one time so I might be mixing memories.

^^^^ was not impressed with the gun. Too chunky imo and too expensive (pay for the name brand).

FYI last time i was in Rome ... well, we have a strong boots-on-ground military presence, terrorist attacks n' all that, and ALL the posts were using ARX200 (7.62 model - you can tell from the size of the mag).
We're not exactly a *modern* military.
EDIT: 160 or 200, i'm not sure. I *did* speak to one guy and said "it's 7.62?" and he gave me a "yes" smile. Didn't bother asking if it was NATO rounds, as i stupidly assumed we wouldn't use a f* easter block round for our guns.

AR15 that is compliance to California. Look at it (the grip) and laugh. :D

No adjustable stock, 10 rounds or less magazine, and so on. Why even bother. Why not just get a slingshot. Oh wait, better put some restrictions on that slingshot to ensure it is in full compliance.

Oh, umm, I had one of those.
They arent nearly as much fun as they seem. They're impossible to use as a pistol, and if you attach a stock you've just made an SBR.
Dont get caught.

I’m filing a form 1. Bought it intending an SBR build.

Yes, the military is not scooping up dirty Russian steel cased at north of fifty cents a round. That’s all us.

Stock looks like a standard 6 position adjustable stock. Grip is definitely FUBAR. No mention of bullet button, or is that a NY thing? Is the image cut off, or is the flash suppressor missing.

You can NOT adjust the stock for that gun at all. I think the flash suppressor was missing.

Look at the pic in this vendor site.

Smith & Wesson 12938 M&P15 Sport II OR *CA Compliant* Semi-Automatic 5.56 NATO 16" - Alquist Arms

Here is another CA compliance AR15 (not adjustable stock and grip and no 30 rds magazine).

Marines are making some changes to their rifle qual, to reflect the changing world.


No more sitting, because in real life no one ever does that. The target is moving from a bulls eye and rings to a dude with beard. Gear will be worn, because thats how you'll shoot in the field. More moving targets.

Went to my local store, hoping to sell some stuff.
The place was full of guns, all normal price. And they also had a little ammo, incredibly overpriced.
I guess the panic only extends to bullets and not the tools for shooting bullets.

Modern guns can be had quite reasonably. Old surplus seems to sill be selling at a premium, for whatever reason.

Seems like it's now a lot easier to find things than it was towards the middle of last year. Still some components overpriced and hard to find (eg AR bolt carriers, etc) but generally the manufacturing and inventory arms have caught up to the demand.

No this new panic was cause by a Democrat taking office. The panic before that was him winning in November. And another, smaller panic when he mentioned gun policy as an after-thought with no time table
