That was pretty cool. I'd like to see some long range shots.

Hickok 45 is one of the best representatives of the 2A community IMO

I think the Tavor is the wave of the future; and legal, for now at least, in Maryland so long as it meets the minimum length requirements and mag cap requirements.

The Israelis live in a constant state of war and this is the weapon they chose to defend themselves with. That is significant, isn't it?

By junk, do you mean they were designed to be "disposable" and easily replaced?

I believe the first polymer firearms in the USA were considered "overpriced junk" too but the value is in the weight reduction, which is a different value from artful metallurgy.

As a polymer battle rifle, what's a fair valuation/selling price--absent the hype?

They are a problem searching for a solution just like Gas Piston AR's. You get a shorter package and that's the only advantage over an M4 that the Israelis used before. I have messed with them and I conveyed my opinion, it dosent sit well with you, oh well.
