    I still can't get over how funny those Calico's look. Is it accurate enough to warrant that big scope?

    They're pretty accurate but the pistol version, not so much.

    Not really into military style firearms (well except 1911's) but a few years ago I was given this. I have to admit it sure works better than the M-16 (yes, plain old original M-16 not an A1 etc). That thing was a piece of junk. Amazing what fifty years of development can do for a poor design.

    ^ That right there is how I like my AR15's. Using my iron sights I've shot circles around those guys who show up to the range with ten doodads hanging off their rifles. Not saying they aren't useful in some situations, but I prefer the KISS principle.

    I've posted this elsewhere, but what the heck.

    IMG_20120220_020604.jpg

    It's got LMT sights front and rear, MI Free-Float rails, PSA upper and mil-spec BCG, 20" 1x7 chrome-lined barrel, Wilderness Giles sling, and Magpul PRS stock.

    It's also got a bullet button and a 10-round magazine, cause big brother says so here in CA, but it's still a great weapon.

    It should be. I haven't gotten to zero it yet because my friends thought it would be high-larious to pepper my target with .22 last time I went plinking. I'll get it done next time I'm able to go shooting.

    They're usually good pals, but I won't be shooting with some of them anytime soon.

    There are more people I won't shoot with than people I will. And I never go shooting with more than one person I haven't shot with before. I might be a little paranoid, but safety for me is numero uno.

    I never go shooting with people who I don't have complete faith in safety wise. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean they are the best shooting buddies.

    NWFA Anderson lower/upper just added a Leupold scope to it and the hand guard is getting cerekoted FDE to match the stock.
