It's not too evil, but it is all black!

Maybe we could call it a sinister black rifle.

What makes it "Evil"? Is this just a nickname?

They are the most scary guns imaginable!!

Non gun people think they are "scary" and evil and serve no purpose in society... I feel bad for these people.

EBR or Evil Black Rifle is a sarcastic and or slang term used in reference to the anti-gun community's perception of semiautomatic rifles that often share common cosmetic features with military rifles.

Much like a few years ago, every time that a handgun was used in a crime the news media would report a "Glock" was used.

Example of EBR=scary

My girlfriend wondered the age old question. "Why?" As in, why do I need my EBR, why would I want something so powerful? I showed her my Colt AR. I showed her my Marlin .35 Remington. I asked her which one she thought was more powerful. Of course, she said the AR. Then I showed her the cartridges. She said "well the black one shoots faster." Then I showed her my Browning BAR in .270 Win and showed her the cartridge.

She's not an anti-gunner, she owns a Sig. Most people react to appearances. They see something that "LOOKS bad" and figures it is bad.

It called being ignorant, my girlfriends sister is a little on the liberal side she saw my AR and her first comment was "what do you need a gun like that for" My response was "the same reason you had to have a Apple Mac Book Pro when a $400.00 Acer when have done the same thing you use a computer for SURF INTERNET AND CHECK EMAIL" she paused for second and just walked away......lol

Here's a link for the Pearce PG-AR15 1911 style grip. They except any 1911 panel.

Pearce started out in Washington state and moved to a more biz friendly state, Texas. Nice product and a natural if you are a 1911 shooter.

I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.

From what I can gather, EBR = Enhanced Battle Rifle, but in this case it stands
for Evil Black Rifle... it is used to describe AR type rifles more often than not.

The scarier looking the better

Definition of "you could hear a pin drop."

This is the second best thing I ever said in a college class.

Sociology class in my Junior College days, we enter into a discussion about firearms, assault rifles, etc. Someone says "you don't NEED an assault rifle to hunt deer."

I replied, "I don't have my assault rifle to hunt deer, I have it to hunt oppressive Federal agents if they ever get out of line."

Silence. For a while. A long while. I added, "you know, like the guys who founded this nation."

More silence, for a while. Discussion over.

Since this is a picture thread, here are my EBRs.

Thanks, Skadoosh. Of course, my example to my girlfriend would have been null and void if I had held up the .308 cartridge.

This is "Sting" which is not entirely an EBR (skin color doesn't matter to me.)

And this is "Grond"

I like Miami JBT.

Apparently, he has so many guns, he can't afford a bedframe.

From the top:
1945 Garand M1 (while not black, CLEARLY it's the most dangerous assault rifle I own, because it was actually used by the Army! )

Savage Mk II Tactical in .22LR, which is obviously a sniper rifle because, well, come on, look at that scope!

CMMG/BCM AR15, with (at the time) Ace SOCOM Stock and EOTech sight and Troy VTAC handguard.

CMMG/Alexander Arms AR in .50 Beowulf, also with Ace Stock and Troy VTAC handguard.

Springfield XD in 9mm that I'm not too good with just yet.
