    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.

    never!

    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.
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    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.
