    I've seen various posts across different threads from people who are unhappy about the advertising though I would assume DW's gunfund comment was meant in jest. The site is yours to do with as you wish and you don't have to explain anything to anyone as far as I'm concerned. If you can make more cash by advertising gay **** on every page then you should go for it and if people don't like it they're very welcome to stop using the site, which is after all, completely free of charge to them.

    Made completely in jest, however the way the ads now intrude into posts rather than sit between them is a pain in the ass all the same.

    I handled an LWRC carbine the other day. Really nice. Unfortunately, I don't have $1995 to spend on another AR these days.
    If you liked the LWRC you're really going to like my product when you see it. I ordered a remote firing stand today for testing. You know the suspense is just killing me!

    I wonder what the reasoning was behind the 7+ inch barrel. I like the idea of being authentic, but I can't get myself to get anything over the 5.5" model.

    Longer sight radius and more versatile for the cowboy. Short pistols are more the gun fighters style. Long barrels are more suited for hunting. Pistol were used and thought of a little different today. 6 shooters where more "five extra shots". Fast draw was out. A person took their time to aim. The single shot guns had a influence that carried over to the newer styles.

    Ideally, I like the 5.5" barrel. The balance seems perfect to me.
