I guess I'm one of those guys who had no interest in 223/556 before the most recent election cycle. But I had thousands of rounds in the garage from days of yore, just sitting there, beckoning, and no rifle to shoot that stuff.
So I bought a SIG556 for just over $900, and a half dozen Pmags at $12 apiece. I don't really like the rifle all that much, but figure maybe it will grow on me if I continue to shoot it. Just did a trigger on it, so it has very little overtravel and lightning quick reset.
I thought maybe I would use it in 3 gun or similar sometime in the Spring. Sigh.
Maybe I'll just sell it and buy an M1A when the fever subsides.
