    I am going to hate myself in the morning

    Well I am trying to beat the addiction hopefully there is a 2,000 step process.

    I purchased my SCAR Heavy last year and absolutely love it, lightest recoiling .308 battle rifle I have ever owned. I have thought about getting the SCAR light several times but prices being what they are I just waited.

    Well today my friend went to her local gun shop to look at Glocks, that is for another post, I simply asked here if there were any AR's as she is wanting one the owner stated that he did not have any however he did have two SCAR's one Heavy and one Light.

    Again with skype going full swing I was explaining to her the features of the SCAR, she has seen mine but never shot it, and the owner was pointing them out as we talked. When I asked what the price was I was kind of shocked, $2250 out the door. I jumped on gunbroker and checked prices and this was a little less so I started looking closer. Video can be sort of deceptive and about that time the owner said "yeah the Flat Dark Earth models take awhile to get". I could stand it no more. I know there is nothing a SCAR can do that an AR can't but if the Heavy model is that light recoiling I can only imagine what this will be. I then found a 10" barrel assembly for it on gunbroker for $1150. I think I will wait on that.

    By the way if I remember right jonconsiglio started me on the SCAR thing a long time ago so I will blame him.
    "A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

    Buyer's remorse is usually less about the purchase and more about...the buyer. I'm with ya' on the SCAR(s), Well Done!

    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.

    We are enablers. There is no multi step process here
    Monotony is the awful reward for the careful

    How can man die better than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his fathers and the temples of his Gods?

    If you regret it that much, send it to me to get it out of sight.

    Is there still room for you and the guns in the same house? If not get a bigger house.

    The only remorse I have associated with my SCARs is ever being dumb enough to sell them. Great rifles.
    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe
