Hey guys. I posted a little already and just realized i didn't even introduce myself. My name is Dom and I'm from so cal. My brother works at Guns Direct in Burbank ca, so if u need anything in a pinch and are local, and they got it, lmk and ill help out as much as i can.

Ive never really been into guns and such till recently, even though I've owned a S&W CS45 and 9mm Barreta since right after high school('97). It was just a few months ago that i decided to get a rifle after hanging out with my military buddies as well as my brother being a tactical instructor. I finally gave in lol.

Ive always loved the way scars "looked" and don't care too much about "building" (putting together) AR's, unless i machined it myself. So, i decided i wanted a scar16 and some what debating just getting a 17.

Short version of story is i had my bro get me a 16. Put a lot of rounds thru it and decided i needed the 17 a few weeks later lol.

Here they are:


Also , just thanking everyone here In advance for all the great info. Ok back to reading more on the forum.

It is expensive but don't look at it that way, think of it as smiles per round or thrills per pull, of the trigger that is, it makes the cost much more palatable. There's not much that can brighten one's day like shooting.

Ive been lookn but i wont get one till i get thru my goal of putting at least 1000-2000rds thru each of them. Only ones ive actually ever looked thru are the acogs and a eotech. Although inhav not looked thru an elcan, i really like the idea of having variable magnification in one unit.

As far as guns being expensive and not lookn at it that way. I know what u mean. Its just like my truck. I hav Waaay too much into that thing but its all about having fun.

And thanks for the welcome guys and gals
