    Ahhh Edson, I was east coast but was later stationed just down the road from Edson at Las Pulgas. It's that kind of love I have for the M16A2. I was always jealous of the squids on ship just for the fact that they still had M14's.

    Well I got the SOCOM II, I wanted the 16, but found a deal I could not pass up, NIB and I was able to trade the guy my Kimber CDP compact and $300. Only one trip out to the range so far, it ate the Wolf FMJ very well, unfortunately I only had some mini silhouete targets and my front sight was covering them at 100 yards :( I still managed to get them in the "X" ring a couple of times, I kept them on the paper for the most part, but man it's hard shooting a target you can't see.

    I added a Yankee hill bipod adapter and Harries 6" to 9" bipod and am investigating my options for optics. Maybe Santa will leave an Aimpoint in my stocking.

    I am also considering changing stocks to either a Vltor stock kit or one from JAE, check them out here: JAE100.com.

    Good choice on the .308 now if you have to come to VA to kill some deer do to outrages overloaded deer population you can use that. AR you cannot.

    I don't know if you were being sarcastic, but here's about where it's at...

    Edson Range is the area on Camp Pendleton where the recruits from San Diego do thier field training and rifle qualification. It's over near the 41 Area, "Las Flores" And had atleast when I was over near that way one of the top 3 mess halls on post, the best being the 13 area mess hall over near the Division HQ.
