Buy A Gun day is April 15th, a fine day to make a statement regarding freedom.
I have jumped the gun so to speak and already made my purchase.
I sent in an Imbel FAL kit, DSA metric upper receiver and requisite U.S. made parts to be built and have another FAL added to my collection. This one will be a carbine with a 16.25" barrel.
Four reasons this was my choice:
1) Ammunition and parts commonality with existing possessions
2) It has a gas piston!
3) I found a DSA metric type II receiver for a reasonable price at a local gun shop
4) I have always been found of the FN FAL since reading SOF as a kid
I will have to purchase some accessories for my newest FAL; a DSA scope mount receiver cover and a holosight (either a Trijicon Reflex or an Eotech 55x).
However I will not accessorize mine as much as this one since at least one of those accessories would get me in hot water with my heterosexual life partner.
