    The woman and I (strangely enough she is a main reason for this) have been talking about getting one for years. Well we finally got around to it. Came home with this ridiculous thing tonight....

    Right? haha.

    Had been pricing them online for a while to avoid a few hundred in sales tax. Actually found one locally used in like new condition for several hundred less than a new one, including a handfull of mags, so I pounced.

    Maybe...MAYBE in good time...but I've already got the .308 side of things covered.

    Also, .308 is a bit much for the lady to shoot regularly, and to carry around if it ever came down to it...;)

    Basically, I hate AR-15's (been there done that) and needed to fill the 5.56 niche....

    It's some form of shooting apparatus. :D
    Wish I could afford one myself!

    The 17 is the 308 version.

    Both are superb rifles.

    FN, mmmmmmmmm!

    Congrats on the great looking rifle.

    Just got a FN GP35 last week. They

    make truly fine guns.

    Enjoy!

    Congrats. I fired one November of 2012 and it is a fine rifle. Trigger pull is a bit heavy. It's one sexy rifle.
