Right in line w/ what I would expect.

Weight is weight and anyone who has ever used an AR knows less is more. Do you know the saying, ounces equal pounds? Well it's true. What do pounds add up to? With the Ruger you'll find out. Shooting mostly from the bench I see how someone wouldn't think weight was a problem.

^^^ I care not to defend myself against someone who is known to spread a lot of misinformation (your clueless about the FN SCAR). This is the last time I will acknowledge any of your posts.

By the way, I don't shoot mostly from the bench, so don't tell me how I mostly shoot. Its simply the easiest time to get video. I don't see any from you by the way. But you don't see me saying how you shoot. Have a good day and a good life.

Here's a great link by a very good reviewer.

No need to defend yourself. I'm not attacking you personally. If you want to make the assumption that I am I will. There are things I would like to say but out of respect for the forum I will not.

Misinformation, when? That's my pet peeve w/ guys like you. I don't claim to know much but will not spread misinformation like others around here. I have never claimed to know anything about the SCAR. If you want to make accusations stick to the facts.

Gunblast, Nutnfancy? Really? You can find better sources than that.

Check out the Contour line of cameras. The two I have work great for filming on the move. I have a rail mounted vid cam I'll send you for free.

Just remember ownership is by no means an indication of ability.

I don't see misinformation here from MJ. Weight and reliability are the two most important factors in an AR you'll be lugging around and possibly using to defend yourself some day. You may not like everything he says but he does do his homework and he does try to help people avoid mistakes. I know because he consistently comes up with answers that make sense.

Anyway, we all come with different points of reference and we all have to make good decisions. Take your time, do your research and buy the right gun for you. It is smart to listen to others who've been down the pike but if you're sure of your research then go with what you think is right.

Good points and well taken.

Wow.......thanks to everyone for your input!

Every other handgun and shotgun I own was purchased with the reasoning that I could use it for either concealed carry, home defense, and/or target plinking.

This purchase (for my purposes) would be primarily a back-up home defense weapon.

Bottom line, I don't need this rifle.....I WANT it!

Looks like I've got some more homework and some thinking to do.....thanx for the info!

It's not the size of the dog in the fight.

Those Contour cams look great. What cam do you have mounted on a rail?

Thanks,

Thanks,
I have the HD and the Roam. The Roam being the better of the two. The one I was offering up was purchased in a group buy. I can't remember the brand name.
