Youtube. Until it came along, I have no idea that there were so many fat guys who never served in the military yet still consider themselves qualified to try to argue with or otherwise school men who were/still are.

Seriously though--why is almost every guy with a gun on Youtube a fatbody? Can someone explain that to me?

Take a Springfield M-14/M1A, M1Garrand, or AK bury the rifle in pea soup mud for about a month dig it up shake it out clear barrel for safety and shoot. They near will always shoot. Try that test with a AR action and see what you get.

WOW, a dirty AR that shoots!

This guy needs to spend some time in the sandbox instead of utube.

That's just dis-respect for your weapon. Obviously more money that brains.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

No, not the source for punctuation and grammar, the source for the quote.

JD, you got your monthly visitor?

In this case, the tester (Sinistral_Rifleman) is qualified because he has put more rounds down-range in a 5 day class than my entire company in the Army did in one year. Every weekend he is shooting some sort of competition. He is invited annually to the Ft. Benning 3-gun match by the Army Marksmanship Unit. He has a lot of trigger time, and finds the arguments that ARs are unreliable or finicky to be complete falsehoods perpetuated by people who buy bottom of the barrel crap or do not clean or lube their rifles.

And as far a being "fat," he would still pass the Army's taping...

What exactly would that prove? What sort of situation would you find yourself in that you need to dig your gun out of a mud puddle weeks later?
