    Long live the FAL. I was isused one and have one now. Great rifle.

    ;D I was not talking about you. Just FAL haters in general. Who says you need a role for your guns? Or you plan on making a movie? I have not found a role for my Nagant or M95 either, but that did not stop me from buying them
    I was actually inferring that I know a few people on here that might disagree with you about that comment and i know how you like to push buttons...

    When you have 4 kids under 5 you have to come up with the best excuse you can to buy guns, and ammo, and do SBRs, and all the other stuff. my wife is pretty understanding but there is still a line I dare not cross.
    Don't confuse enthusiasm for competence

    Want more grip for your M&P Pistol? Send me a message.

    Hey I understand, I put a self impose ban on myself, no more guns stuff in 2009 other than a 50 BMG bolt rifle. Somethings just take higher priority.

    As for disagreeing with me, I don't mind. As a matter of fact, I say bring it! ahahah I have no personal agenda an I am not scared of being wrong ;D

    I think he's proven his point, and just hope he doesn't blow himself up one day.

    Aziator... a FAL or two (even DSAs) would be pocket change compared to the rest of your collection. Go for it.

    A good FAL, looked after will last a lifetime. That was a good enought reason for me, along with the fact that I can strip and reassemble it in the dark, clear jams without thinking and love the thing. In fact, if it had tits and lips I'd probably marry it.

    I don't know that I would even keep that thing in my gunsafe for fear something will fall off it and get everything dirty
    I just thought about this, I just looked at my gas tube and it does not go the full length like Ole Dirty does, so it seems that hole will not harm anything since mine is missing a full quarter section!

    Later found out: I also confirmed with the FAL guys, and they say that tube is just a guide, no real pressure there.

    15k rounds is actually nothing for a FAL reciever so there is no fear of a kaboom. Cleaning it will not make the receiver go longer.

    I agree with Micky, if it had lips, legs, and cannons, I would marry an FAL too!
