I'm sure you're away that .223 and 5.56 aren't the same.

Just like I'm sure you know you can shoot .223 out of a 5.56 but not the other way around.

This would be an ideal opportunity to write one of your long winded and pedantic posts explaining the difference in the two loads and chamber specs so that some noob doesn't have a rifle blow up in their face.

I didn't mean that to sound condescending pinky. I'm confident that you already know about the .223 / 5.56mm rounds and their associated platforms.


Still no reason for you to get your panties in a bunch.

I do not get my panties in a bunch. I rarely even wear underwear. However, there seem to be a lot of people out there actually getting their panties in a bunch and making some irrational online purchases.

Be prepared for the absolutely ridiculous...

For a magazine that costs <$50! Stupid, frightened and panicked consumers.

I ordered 2 of these 30rnd mags from the Ruger website last week while they were briefly in stock and paid $111.90 including shipping....smh.

I could care less. I don't own a carbine platform and don't have a need for one.

Now an 870 Remington, that is something I want and will use, a lot!

I'm pretty sure you meant "l couldn't care less", because if you could care less, then you would, right?

Also, I have a Remy 870 and you're right, I use it a lot. But you probably couldn't care less. See how that works?

No.

If I couldn't care less then I wouldn't have taken the time to comment.

At the risk of getting my ass handed to me by people better versed on the topic and more passionate about their stance, I'm throwing my .02 into the ring.

- "AR" does not stand for "Assault Rifle". It is the abbreviation for the company (ArmaLite) that invented the gun, which they use as the prefix on all model numbers of the guns they create.

- I am frequently disappointed in my fellow citizens that I should have to defend a hobby when I am a perfectly sane, law-abiding citizen. (Just the same as it pisses me off when I have to patiently explain for the billionth time that Vertical Limit is not an accurate representation of climbing - it is a highly sensationalized drama designed to make something seem far more exciting and dangerous than it actually is.)

- Of all violent crimes committed with a firearm, less than 2% are committed with an AR of any sort.

- Semi-automatic weapons don't "spray" bullets.

- A proficient shooter can change a clip as quickly (if not faster) as a slow shooter, like myself, can operate the semi-automatic.

- Harvard published a study showing an inverse relationship between gun control and violent crime. Regardless of geo-political boundary, tighter gun control leads to higher incidents of violent crime.
http://theacru.org/...s_counterproductive/

- It is dangerously naive to think that ill-informed, kneejerk legislation is going to keep crazy people from doing crazy shit. We need to get better at identifying the crazy people and focus on keeping weapons of any sort out of THEIR hands. My granola-making, tree-hugging, gluten-fearing, AR-owning self will never open fire in a public place.

(unless shooting my mouth off on rc.com counts, in which case, this is the closest that I will come to such.)

Thank you, have a good night

Quick post-script before I get back to my paper:
According to Dr. Gary Kleck, criminologist at Florida State University in Tallahassee and author of "Point Blank: Guns and Violence in America," a book used by many in the gun debate, 800,000-2,500,000 crimes are stopped by guns each year. The numbers are from different studies.
