    My first rifle

    Well came home to Florida for vacation since I do deploy soon. Shoot Straight, a local gun store to Florida is having there 33rd anniversary this weekend so I decided to go check them out. Walked in yesterday and took a look at the Sig 556 Swat Patrol version. It was the last one on the shelf. I look at it, fell in love. I came in with the intention of buying some kind of Dual piston AR setup as opposed to direct impingement. I looked at the guy and told him the cost of it wasnt that big of a deal but it was whether I wanted the Sig or some other AR. He then said if I wanted the Sig he would knock a hundred bucks off. Well okay! So I purchased that. Came back later in the evening to utilize there range and my wife bought me an Eotech 512 out of no where as an early Christmas/ Birthday present since I wont be here and I bought a Magpul AFG... this rifle is AWESOME!!!

    Congrats - looks sweet!! I would say more if I had more knowledge of rifles and such, but still a noob when it comes to those, lol.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.
