i guess it's hard to imagine a card-carrying, spandex-wearing member of the cycling community having something like that, but hey...it's a hobby.

Guns don't kill people, people kill people. Guns are just a tool. Personally, I hate guns, but I love bikes, and I know people love guns as much as I love bikes, so no reason to take them away. We need to take guns away from crazy *******s who shoot people.

I'm going to learn how to play someday, I have too much school work right now. So between school + spamming the forums + riding = no time to learn.

Yah, well, if the volume dial went to 11 instead of 10, I might be impressed.

Personally, I think that gun is beautifal, I have a friend of my dads, who just got into guns, and he lovews it and he took me to his local shop, and the guys let me hold one of those, It was soo frickin cool.

Is that an m4 or am i wrong?

well...there are a TON of different M4's. this one is an accurized colt, which is the brand i had my heart set on, and cost around $1500. the mags i have are "grandfathered" 30rd's.
what brand was the one you held? i think the most common civillian-owned brand is bushmaster, but i'm not totally sure about that.
