Seriously though Tom, I never intended to mock you, the post was a little jest followed by a genuine happy birthday wish. My apologies if you feel you have been wronged, but I did not intend that to start with.
I tend to have a fairly humorous approach to life and always feel there should be a way to laugh at anything, but never in an intentional hurting manner.
So again, please let's not be at odds, let's just have a laugh and understand that neither of us want's to do anything but enjoy life and be friends wherever possible.
BTW, I have only been caring for and feeding AR-15's for about 30 years in constant usage in competition. I have handled, shot and owned just about every flavor there is. If there is one thing I know a little about, it's this platform.
I am dead serious about there being a large base of old school folks out there who will never consider the AR anything but a "carbine" best used for varmint hunting. I am not one of them, I love the AR platform with a passion, but know enough of these folks on a personal basis that I have trained myself to use the word "carbine" in their presence to prevent having to argue the whole .223 versus .30 caliber thing all over again LOL
Thanks in advance for your understanding on this :-)
