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