Anyone else notice the XCR vs. 556 thread being deleted off that other forum most of us frequent. I speculate because at the end of the day it’s very hard to stack up the 556 against the very advanced XC, so better to stifle and censor opinions instead of allowing open dialog. And the funny thing is that thread was very courteous, mature with lots of points being made, most in favor of the XCR

I swear, Manatees and Pandas aren’t as well protected as the 556. I'm even gladder I got the XCR now. Such an outstanding product that entire threads are deleted and people are banned just to keep the word from getting out.

That thread was just getting good... and now it's whacked so we don't even know what was last posted! Very sad indeed... if the thread was in the weeds, fine, but they should have just locked it at the most.

No disrespect to anyone's opinion, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who would appreciate it if all those enjoying the flamefest would just take it to email... here, and there.

Did we ever get a source for 556s being sold at a 3:1 ration against the XCR? I was not at my computer but reading the updates on my phone.

I think the Thread needed to get locked or as LBJ did deleted.

The XCR vs 556 debates always end up going down a Rat hole and mud starts flying
people resort to name calling. If anyone missed it the last few posts on the thread before getting deleted
went something like this.

Oatman posted that I was basically deliusional for posting that VB and Federale were barred from 556 threads because they seemed too confrontational with 556 owners. He satated that they were I quote Assholes that signed up at SigForum just to bash SigArms and the 556 furthermore he said they were brothers. ??? I think he is delusional and I posted something to the effect that they both have been members for 2-3 years and I had no idea the 556 has been around that long...and who looks like an Asshole now.

Anyway..... I know VB and Federal were told to stay out of 556 threads for a period of time..30-60 days and evedently Oatman was thinking of someone else so he and I were both confused.

I take responsibility for my part in the mud slinging and Slag knows I took issue with his repeated posts about why he does not care for the XCR. Oatman started calling people Assholes and I guess the moderators seen enough and decided to delete the post all together.

Let's Never let threads get to name calling in this Forum.

Every gun has its perks and its downfalls. I think the whole "better than this" idea is silly. It's like saying a Shelby is better than a Charger. They're each awesome in their own way. It's all about which one you love the most.

+1. I hope we get to the point where 556 & XCR owners don't feel the need to give some negative kneejerk response to an owner of the other gun posting anything. It all gets started by these jerks ;) who've yet to buy either asking which is best when they know darn well that they should have jumped into one of these guns months ago. ;D

Edit: I will add that Sig has yet to get a yumtart like Terra on the payroll to push the 556 which is its only real weakness. :D

Well I've been a blonde and a redhead in my time, and blonde gets the best reactions. Haha.

Now see, I lovvvvveee the Charger SRT8s. They've got a 6.1L OHV V-8, 425 hp engine!!! Say what you want... That is a MEAN car. Of course, next to the Mustang GT... the Mustang would probably win.

Wait... aren't we talking about guns? :s

That SRT8 Charger is strong. They have some guys putting superchargers on 'em. That may be my next car. I had some jackarse in a G35S trying to rev on my E55 today. He was darting in and out of traffic and I didn't get a chance to show him the smackdown that he'd get from a 500 HP car. Oh well. I guess I need to get the train horn re-installed.

I love Dodge. Dodge and Ford are my favorite companies. I'm a firm believer in American cars. Around here, everyone drives a nissan or a Honda. :mad: Although I saw a BEAUTIFULLY redone 1973 Mach 1 Fastback yesterday... They gave it a candy fire-orange paintjob. It was gorgeous. They also got the wider tires and gave it a slight lift. Mmmm.

Bah, we all know (even if we won't admit it...) that the Corvette SS will be the One Ride To Rule Them All. At least until someone figures out how to get 800hp on pump gas.

I'm still a GM fan. Every weekend the discussion turns to Pontiac and it's folly of discontinuing the GTO after such a short run. This does seem to be par for the course, though, since the Trailblazer SS (man, you HAVE to drive one of these; they're just stupid-fun and a real sleeper) is looking at the same three year run.

I also have high hopes for the new Camaro, though I still hate the name. Pontiac should have had first dibs on this chasis with a new Firebird. I mean, which would you rather have? A Camaro (little pal) or a Firebird? No brainer there, unless you're a GM exec. :-\

Have you seen the Ford GTO they're going to be putting out? Mmm, it looks so awesome now. As for Corvette... I know it's a fast little car, but... I just don't think it looks that good. I like big cars with sharp body lines, and the corvette is small and... I dunno. It's just not my pick as far as aesthetics.

We bought a Durango back in May, and we're planning to put the supercharger in it. We're also going to accessorize the hell out of it. I know it's an SUV, but it's got a whole lot of power, and I love the way it drives.
Someday in the future, I want a little Camero SS. I'm thinking a '65-'67. I'm going to get it detailed black and dark pink. hehe.

Damm, I must be old. My first car was a '68 Charger similar to the pic below (mine had a black vinyl roof), one of the few cars I've had that I didn't have to move the seat all the way back to get comfortable behind the wheel.

Also attached is what I think of when someone says "Shelby".

Oh wow... gorgeous Charger....

Before I bought my little Escort (Don't laugh :mad:) I was going to buy this 1968 Shelby off of Ebay. It was in good condition, beautiful green paint job (same color as that Charger), the engine had been rebuilt 50,000 miles ago... And get this... the dummy was selling it for $6,800. He could have gotten more than that, easy.
Alas, I didn't snatch it up, and it was gone two days later.
