The return on investment for a newer assault rifle doesn't seem likely to me. What kinds of results do you really expect, fractions of a percent. The next evolution in small arms for the military will be similar to comparing WWII air power to modern air power, and the only real difference is targeting ability. I'm thinking the next small arms weapons system will be a fully networked multi function optics system, everything until then will only be incremental.

That sounds like something a little more likely.

You're right Jager.But I simply cannot stand such kind of people.Last time I went to the wallmart I've seen some teenagers making fun of a private us marine who has lost his leg in action.I lost my mind.Completely.

War teached me something really important:Show respect, always.Today I'm here, alive and in good shape.Many others weren't that lucky.Some of them sacrificed their lives and health to let me get back to my family.I will never forget what those men did for me.
To make it short:If they're good enough to die for your then they are eve good enough to deserve your respect.Never forget it!

It's the part about you bashing the AR in ways that make some of us think you may be full of it. The AR is a damn good rifle platform and probably the most popular rifle sold in the US right now. I'm not going to get into a debate about which is better the AK or the AR, obviously most of America has chosen with their wallet.

Noted.As I said the AR platform is a great one...but in my modest opinion, it should be modified a little bit to be..."perfect".There isn't much work that has to be done, a relatively small investment should be enough.

I am incredably thankful for service members sacrfice. I know several service members that have seen or are experiecing combat and they never talk about it. it seems like those that keep dropping refernces to combat and opions on service weapons have never left the states.

Getting emotional is not helpful. Did you come to the aid of the disabled veteran? Even if you did come to the marine's aid you missed a great teaching moment for our future because you were emotional. All children learn the same way, by making mistakes. They say it takes a village...

Once you're "in", you never "leave" it.As I said in a comment...I have a son that is serving in Afghanistan...and I want him to have the best equipment, it may make the difference between a "welcome home" and a body bag(I'm sure you know what I'm talk in about)

what the hell is wrong wtih being emotional about some punk kids teasing a wounded veteran? yeah, i would have been emotional as hell myself! since when is it mine or anyone else's place to teach some punk kids some respect and and decency towards other people? i'll give you a clue. it's not! it's the parents place and that's where the blame falls.

and your it takes a village to raise a child is totally wrong. it takes a parent to raise a child. the village didn't bring the child into the world, the parents did.

BTW, children learn by getting their asses busted when they make mistakes.
