Ruger AR556, cause his Colt 6920 was out for repair.

S&W M&P-15 bought by his 19 year old friend for him who was charged with supplying a minor with a dangerous weapon.

Antioch police, "our department did take possession of two Smith and Wesson M&P 15 Rifles"


Looks like he added a sling, magazine, and red dot sight.

If nothing else, that whole deal should show you the value of a good sling.

How did he manage to defend himself with anything less
than a top tier gun?

His friend must have thought his life wasn't worth much!

I think it was topped with a sightmark.

You should be able to search the web and find it at ARFcom.

Absolutely! Competitive shooters that use the kneeling position have use square toe shoes to stabilize that foot. Thinking they also used sell a cap that could be attached to the shoe.

Tactical Ariats?

But seriously, the sling........ Huge lesson there. He got knocked down to the pavement, drop kicked, & hit in the back of the head with an object. I don't think his right hand ever lost grip on the rifle. But if it had, his sling would have kept it in a reasonable position to be easily regripped.

I'd be interested in knowing exactly what ammunition he was using. I know it was FMJ but what kind?

Yeah I think the FMJ gets a bad rap around here. It’s nothing to scuff at, ask DD.

I have a drum loaded with it.

I shoot a lot of M193 and if impact velocity is sufficient and if it hits just right it can break apart creating a nasty wound. Notice a lot of if’s there?

There’s just better choices available with fewer if’s.

My cousin who was in VN said that M193 was like a chopsaw.

I have more than one 6920. Not a single one of them has ever burped. Not one single time.

The Ruger did the job that night.
