XM-8 Not So Great?

December 15, 2010 sexyknees

As cute and sexy as I might be, I do have a tough interior.  I love guns and fully support the right to bear arms!  Besides, we need protection from the king of England as well as pesky Cuba invaders (according to Red Dawn).

Personally, I own a Winchester Defender riot shotgun with an 8 round magazine.  I keep it loaded with 000 buckshot and sabot slugs just in case I need to obliterate a home-invading blood-thirsty lion or tiger!  In all seriousness, I keep it nearby in hopes that the sound of it alone will be enough to dissuade someone from causing me harm.  Nothing more menacing than the cocking of a 12-gauge shotgun if you are on the wrong end of the barrel!!!

I recently read that the US Army will not be adopting the XM-8 as a replacement for the M-16/M-4.  Honestly, I am not a fan of any of these assault rifles as I prefer the traditional 7.62mm cartridge over the NATO 5.56mm.  Call me sentimental, but I miss the long-barreled M-14, H&K G3, and FN-FAL!  If I ever have to go into combat I don’t want a sprinkler with limited range – give me something that will kill a charging grizzly bear!!!

I’ve read a little about the 6.5mm Grendal/.264 LBC-AR cartridge and would like to know what everyone thinks about these new(ish) rounds as compared to the 5.56mm.  I’d also like to know if anyone has any thoughts about what assault rifle they would recommend to be the new weapon of the US military.  Send me your thoughts!

      Ha! Absolutely!!! As luck would have it I have an outfit which resembles hers. Maybe I should plan to wear it on my next shoot?

      Nice! A fine Finnish round. I would love the opportunity to fire a few at a 1,000 meter target!
