    As you guys can probably tell by a lot of my posts I love my M1A's and I dont think there is a better rifle on the market. I am sorry if you feel different then I do and I wont argue with you. I have been trained on the M21, so I know this rifle inside and out. Could possibly be why I love it so much. So please show me your M1A, weather it be a standard, M21, scout squad, or a socom. It can be all tac'd out or bone stock, as long as its an M1A post it.

    I will break the ice even though most have seen mine. My newest addition to my family, the M1A Scout Squad.

    I say this with all due respect(and I mean all DUE respect), and I am not trying to make any enemies. But....

    You're unknowingly being kind of a dick, right now.

    I have a M1A on layaway right now, with half down already paid. I think about it every minute of every day. I think about how I can beg, borrow or steal to get the money to get it out of hock, right this minute. I am really trying to forget about it.

    This post didn't help my situation any.

    Thanks.

    I feel that same way about the AR I want right now. But MY M1A is keeping me company... Hold it every night.

    Rack the bolt.

    Play with.

    Look at.

    Hold.

    Any thing else?

    Would you prefer your new nickname on this forum be "Money" or "Cash King"? Your pick.

    Here's my new rifle, a Springfield Armory SOCOM 16. A scope mount should be arriving tomorrow, and I hope to order an ACOG for it pretty soon.

    I wrote up a review on another forum. I'll cross-post it here if anyone is interested.
