Glad that you made it thru alive. Most that did relied on the 16 had very little to no firearm knowledge. Most don't know a lot after ward. But they did know the limits of the round. I didn't have to go to the big swamp as the guys that I was drafted with and brother did. They don't know what the 223 Remington is. Seems the ones wearing the ball caps were all camped miles away from the action. Have one that didn't even know how to load an M15.
I have the up most respect for our fight men, but these behind the lines camp bunnies, taking the (glory and credit are the wrong word ) respect grip my butt. US 56-986-742
Now with that out of the way. If a guys happy with what he has and don't leave cripples, Who cares what he uses. If it works for him, it's ok by me
I know guys that's used mossies a long time and still using them without any problems.
You tell us what we should buy.
( were not agreeing on a lot, but no pissing match
