Good mags and a quality optic along w/ a couple mags loaded w/ some good HD type ammo and trigger time. Be confident in your abilities to put rounds on target w/ a quickness.

No they're not.

The acronym ACR and the name it stands for is just that. A name. Just because a company calls a product a certain name, doesn't mean that the product is all the things that the name implies.

I could start packaging up my turds, selling them and calling them SPTs (Shiny Play Things). However, the fact that I call them Shiny Play Things doesn't change the fact that they are still turds.

Always remember, "Adaptive a name does not make".

You guys in other states are so lucky. Ere in NY the government thinks an "assault rifle" is the following.

Any semi-auto firearm that can accept a detachable mag in excess of 10 rds with more then one of the following.
Pistol grip
Grenade launcher
Bayonet lug
Detachable or collapsible stock-stupid one
Flash suppressor

So I get a pistol grip and nothing else.. Can't wait to move to Texas lol

Hockey, NY's definition is just legalese, just because a semiauto AR looks like a true select fire assault rifle doesn't mean it is. No more than a showroom stock auto is a NASCAR race car. Civilians in general cannot buy or at least afford to buy a true assault rifle. But Uncle Sam has plenty of them if someone wants to carry one!

Default SCAR or SCR

This video and the others on the Military Channel about the two rifles, will tell you why I bought a FN16s SCAR and not the Bushmaster"Magpul" ACR.

Then you won't be armed as well as I with my FN SCAR16s with my ACOG.

I'm ok w/ that I have a few tricks up my sleeve to compensate for not having an ACOG.

Don't get me wrong the ACOG is a bad ass optic, I've used one in combat, but a little high for my taste as a dad and full time student. Plus I have no plans to engage anything past the range of my H1s.

I will admit I'd like to be standing at the range as I pull a SCAR out of my soft case to see the look and the local guys faces. It does have a cool factor.
