Assault Rifle Goodness

I spent a couple hours sighting in my Colt AR-15 and Trijicon ACOG (Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight).  A lot of people hate “assault” rifles.  Most of ’em, if you could cut through to the truth, actually hate guns, period.

Me, I love them.  Guns in general.  And those evil black rifles in particular.  But then they’ve been part of my mindset all my life.  I’m as comfortable picking up a rifle or a handgun as most people are using a pencil.

Looking at the rear of the ACOG (that’s a 4x optical combat scope) and the fold-down BUIS (backup iron sights).  The ACOG is the cat’s meow of combat gunsights.  I love the meter ranges scribed into those irons, but the ACOG is so good that they’ll get very little use.
