  1. I am pretty sure they mean discussion that does not agree with their point of view Dave. You might be surprised who the AMS staff listen to...
  2. It was a light automatic rifle... it was NEVER a support weapon. The M16A2 is a "Heavy barrel" as well. Does that make it a squad support weapon? It was used by commonwealth nations but never replaced the BREN (which was the squad support weapon)
  3. There is NO comparison at all between a heavy barrel FAL and a Bren. -20 round mags (no, the Israelis did not issue 30 round mags) -Non detachable barrel in a Fusil - Rifle Automatic - Automatic Leger - Light NOT A MACHINE GUN. Not now, not then, not ever. Besides, if it was approved for you as an SSW at AMS events, it would probably be on the list of approved SSWs. (PS Dave, don't knock the FAL, you should see what I can do on the range with my 50.63, besides most everyone is phasing out most everything that was issued 50 years ago by now)
  4. Have you fired an RPK? Have you fired a heavy barrel FAL? If you had, you would not wonder. Quite a bit of difference between a full size cartridge like 7.62 NATO and 7.62x39. Don't get me wrong, I love my FAL, I owe my life to those rifles but the FAL was NOT a platform to build a light machinegun on.
  5. If you have ever fired a real one you would not call it an LMG... At best, an automatic rifle but even compared to the classic M1918 BAR or the later FN BAR D it's not even close.
  6. I would not plan to come in via Cayuga road if at all possible. That's the one most commonly effected by flooding. If you come in off of State Highway 10 you should be fine. Basically take SH 10 south off of US 60 then follow your GPS from there. If your GPS starts telling you to go off on a Jollyfats Weehawken gravel road adventure it is lying. ;P
  7. Sounds like you should learn how to read a map then!
  8. There is one consideration to think about. Running without PL tones means that your radio is set to the default quieting type squelch meaning that your audio opens when the system detects a carrier. This MOSTLY works fine but many cheaper radios (I.E. almost every radio you guys use) will not detect quieting as readily as it detects the squelch tone. You are however completely correct in principal which is why what I would suggest (and have suggested the same in the past) is to assign a default PL tone of 71.9 (-2 on non programmable radios) for every channel so that you get the same net result but still make life easier on the Baofengs and GMRS radio guys.
  9. Oh, I know, far be it from me to interfere with our resident chicken little telling us the sky is falling. After the TAG thread, I am just waiting for him to disclose in what manner he has a financial stake in defaming NERF...
