I live next to a privately owned track of land where I have permission to shoot as often as I like, and do. I may not be operating at full auto and expending 1,000's of rounds daily in a simulated battle (which you seem to suggest is the standard for AR's)--but my DPMS's are no closet queens and I bet more rounds go down my barrels than the average shooter sends. Totally trouble free.
You need to go to the DPMS facebook page and let all the users there know of how badly hoodwinked they are--many of them are active-duty army and marines who use DPMS weapons stateside and entrust the defense of their families to DPMS's.
I dare ya to venture out of this small fishbowl to the land of real users!
Find you? I guess I didn't realize this was your thread or that I was seeking you out. A little bit arrogant on your part.
Snipe? Since when was talking factually sniping. I have had personal experience w/ DPMS and relayed the experience. Sorry if your feelings were hurt in the process.
Are you arguing the fact that the AR/M16 family of weapons was created for the purpose of fighting wars?
I have talked to a DPMS rep. He danced and squirmed from start to finish.
I have been on FB and talked to their pride and joy owners the posted up in all their gear and scarfs. Same thing as their rep.
Omega Zombie? An event put on by DPMS. Seriously? You could choke to death on the airsoft gear or die from the fumes put off by the cheap Chinese plastic.
Fishbowl? Real users? I won't comment anymore on that subject, lol. Well, why not. I put in the time and invest the money. I take classes monthly and supplent the time b/w at numerous private and public ranges. I'm burning upwards of 1k rounds a month. I don't remember the last time my butt touched a shooting bench (that happens when you shoot w/ fellow 11Bs and 0311s) other than 1 year ago when I let my now 4 y/o send rounds down range. So yeah, you hit the nail on the head this time
DPMS is low quality junk for the same price as quality kit.
No need to get defensive as it's just a firearm and it sounds like your sample of 1 is working for you.
