So I had to qualify with the M4 yesterday and I must say the best part of the class was not shooting , but the saftey class part prior to the range time. Don't get me wrong I love a good M4 / M16 / or Ar15, thats why I bought one to hunt with. Why was that the fun part of my day you ask...
Picture if you can 16 guys who all claim to be experts with firearms, all are self proclaimed marksmen, dead eye badxxx hunters. while they were showing them how dissasemble and check for broke and worn parts you come to 2 key components. The buffer and buffer spring. see where this is going yet??
to check the buffer batteries he told us to pick it up and shake it till the end lit up....i sat mine down and we exchanged the look that said wow only one of em knows that won't work. After that it was on to the buffer spring. Now to check the spring he said ok pick it up and hold it to your ear...you should flex it and while flexing it should sound like rice krispies.. you know snap crackle and pop right..of course everyone say oh ya they here it...I set mine down and am glad im in the back of the room to watch the comedy.
I forgot how funny some of those were to watch and just had to share.
