Another custom rifle by Fighting Sheepdog

Watching Jen make op cans dance at 50 yards standing is always fun. And it’s a lot easier to get correctly posed photos if the model isn’t just pretending competency.

  1. Are Op Cans used by the CIA? 😉

    AR-15. I Wouldn’t take it if it were free , and I bet that one is well north of $1500 -$2000 USD. I would MUCH rather have a CZ anything than ANY AR. That AR-15 displays every fad fixture popular today. But it is still the same fail prone POS that Gene Stoner designed in the 1950’s. I’m glad that your friend has discovered a way to part the gun sheep from the money painlessly. I just wish someone with talent could start with a platform that worked outside a sterile environment. “How do you make an AR-15 work in the field”? You toss it in an industrial shredder and buy almost anything else”

      Another one drinking the cool-aid. Stoner’s concepts are nothing short of brilliant and resulted in one of the most reliable and accurate rifles made to date. The AR-15 suffers from a perception problem because of people like you perpetrating the myth that the M16 rifle was unreliable in Viet Nam. The rifle was fine; it was the ammo and the training that was deficient. CZs are OK, I own several, but that doesn’t mean they are a superior design.

      In my experience, BREN805 was as reliable and as accurate as an AR15, and superior with sound suppressor installed. But it was also much heavier and rather awkward, so this rifle is the better choice for the specific shooter. For you, 805 or the improved 806, when available, might be the ticket. Custom means “specific to the wants and needs of the user”.

    Too bad Hollywood hasn’t figured that one out.

      First they’d have to realize that there’s something to be figured out.

      It’s kind of like that infamous Rumsfield comment about known unknowns verses unknown unknowns.

      You give them an experienced and accomplished shooter, and I bet they’ll try to retrain that person to be more in accordance with their Hollywood fallacies and narrative.

      Besides that, you give them an experienced and accomplished shooter, and you’ve handed them an enemy. They’ll have to muck up something in that situation, no matter what.
