Weapons Wednesday: The SIG P320 and the Full Story of the AR15/M16 Family

First– I hit the range this morning with G-Tex of Civ Div Designs holster fame. (BTW, he also has a nifty Instagram page.)

He brought his SIG Sauer P320.

We shot it.

And we pronounced it good.

(Maybe I can get him to post a review in the comments.)

Second– a very good A-to-Z telling of how the AR15/M16 family of rifles and carbines came to be, with much myth-dispelling and hard facts. Should be read and understood and bookmarked. The genius of the great Eugene Stoner (my fellow Marine) shines ever brighter.
