Talking This is my rifle... (Sig 516) UPDATE: Pics

THERE ARE MANY LIKE IT BUT THIS ONE IS MINE!

Just came back from Bass Pro where I picked up my Sig Sauer 516 in OD Green. I am so excited right now! The picture on the web do not do it justice!

We just had some heavy rains come through and as soon as there was a break in the weather my wife and I headed out. (She wanted to be with me on this oh so happy occasion!) Since the storm had just passed, the store was basically empty. When I get to the gun counter, there where about 5 or 6 employees there just bs'n, as I walk up they greet me and ask how they can help me, I say that I had a gun transferred here and that I wanted to pick it up. They ask me what kind of gun, then I say with a huge grin, a Sig 516... Almost in unison they say, "OH, so you're they guy that ordered it!" They then started telling me how nice it was and how they were envious... When they brought it out, I inspected it, it felt very nice, solid. I asked the employees if they wanted to check it out, of course they said yes... Wife is happy, I am happy! Soft rifle case is enroute (condor soft in OD Green), Magpul trigger guard is enroute, still debating on the red dot... need more mags... the afg... Sorry if this is long... pics coming soon, camera needed to be recharged...

UPDATE:

Its just to bad that Bass Pro is run by a bunch of hippies that don't think AR's and other black rifles should be sold in their stores.

They have a handful at the store that I shop at, but only Remington and Bushmaster, half of them are in .22 though...

I got an ar at academy today too. I was thinking bout getting that since they had it in stock. but i went with a Red Jacket. It was my first true a/r being my other is a benelli mr1 and a mp15-22. I realy wanted the sigm400 could not find it. Went to the armsroom shot 300 rounds no problem all reloads from there too. Tomorrow I'm doing the same thing but bringing the mr1 and a buddys colt and armalite just to have fun. Enjoy your purchase I'm enjoying mine congrats from houston on your purchase.

Hey man congrats on new purchase, I have the all black for about 8 months or so now. Zero problems & accurate even w/cheap ammo. I run alot of the American Eagle .233 from Wallyworld & Remington UMC .55gr. You'll love! Here is a pic of mine.
