SOFREP’s 2012 Greatest Hits #1: Navy SEAL Lessons Learned From Aurora CO

With the recent shooting in Connecticut the entire World continues to watch in horror. How can one of the greatest countries on earth continue to allow active shooters to reign down their terror?

There’s much to be done to combat this issue, including gun laws that make sense. The NRA needs to take a leadership position and propose some gun legislation that would make sense, and make a difference.

    @TKW406 got it a few years ago.  I've always wanted one and finally saved up my pennies.  Set me back $1800.  Match barrel, I've only taken her out once.  Put a nightforce scope on her.  Once it warms up a little I'll get her back out to the range at Ft Carson.   Did buy a cheap stock ($200) to replace the wood, but 10 hours later with a dremmel and a LOT of cussin' and I still can't get it to seat.  Might have to just break down and get a MacMillan.

    @Txazz  Couple that blog post with the letter the Marine Cpl wrote to Feinstein (DieHardDuce posted in the Taliban article), and it's great stuff.

    @Tango9  I hear ya maybe wanting to sell a couple items.  Very tempting.  If you can ever find your shit.   How do you like your M1A? I was really debating on my last purchase about "AR" or M1A.  I've only heard good things but they are pricey.

    @TKW406 LOL.  Didn't mean to "neener neener" you.  My phone has been ringing over the last week from friends who put it off as well.  They're telling the same stories about $60 mags.  That's just insane.   I have (cough... HAD) 10 mags for my bushmaster, and 3x20 2x10 for my M1A.  4x15 for my 9mm Glock, 3x15 for the Baretta, 3x12 for the P229.   Before the damn bear clowns made off with them, that is.   Hell, I'm ready to sell a couple of the .223 mags just to make my money back.

    @Tango9 The times they are a changing.  Crazy.   Prices are high but I figure they're just gonna keep climbing.  So I'm getting what I can now.  (Your back patting comment just popped up and pissed me off!!)  Wish I would have found sofrep a little earlier.
