So, anyone else a gun enthusiast, collector, hunter, or target shooter? I do a bit of all of those myself, and I love shooting sporting clays, even though I suck at it. I did some this afternoon with a buddy of mine, along with shooting off my SKS and my Ruger mk.2 target pistol at some paper targets.
(My uncle made me help him skin/drain/gut it, which has heavily contributed to me never taking up hunting as a hobby. The stench of gore and death is only slightly less horrifying than having to wake up before the crack of dawn.)

That being said, the new runs are supposed to be really good, and an actual AUG is fine.
I really like the ergonomics and the size. Once you get used to magazine changes its a really nice platform. Its comfortable, easy to shoulder fast and accurate. The trigger pull is a bit rough though, a common problem on many bullpups.
If I had it to do over again I wouldn't buy this one, due to the reliability of this particular gun, but I would get an AUG.
All in all I like the ergonomics alot and I think I'd be really happy with it if this particular one wasn't a lemon. At this point I don't know what to do with it, I'm going to contact them again and see if they will just exchange it.
And Churbs, what's your beef with the AR-15?
