My tune has certainly changed over the intervening decades, and I think that can be said for a lot of us. I now find the AR family to be one of the premier shooting platforms on the planet.

That said, I did find the tacticool lever gun a bit curious. Maybe in a few years I'll want to buy one, however!!
Back then the AR platform kind of sucked, it came a long way
in forty years, I like my shorty for a boonie Jeep gun.
