    they're nice guns, but the really don't fulfill any purpose other than looking badass.

    If I were going to get an M1A I'd just opt for a full length instead of the scout model; all you can really do with them is target shoot or hunt so theres no real point in such a short barrel.

    The main purpose of .308 is long range shooting, the main purpose of a carbine is short range shooting. If you're looking into .308, get a full length gun. If you're looking into a carbine, get a smaller caliber.

    I just thought I would say that since some idiots think that a short barrel = excellent for home defense.
