I think the fun thing about this Wired article is that I agree, but I have zero accessories for any of my ARs. All of them are plain as jane. I don’t even like optics, and use the standard A2 sights on the carry handle. From the article:
â€œYouâ€™re doing great,â€ said Justin Harvel, founder of Black Rain Ordnance and maker of the gun I was shooting.
â€œItâ€™s not me,â€ I replied. â€œIâ€™ve never shot like this in my life. Itâ€™s gotta be this gun.â€
â€œYeah, itâ€™s definitely not your daddyâ€™s hunting rifle, is it?â€
Nope, you can shoot it all afternoon, whereas daddy’s hunting rifle will hurt you since it’s more powerful shot-for-shot. The article contains a number of inaccuracies, but is overall decent. For instance, the NRA never supported the 1994 ban, even after the sunset provision was inserted.
