I thought it was a gloved finger and some tiny-ass bullets.

50 yards??? You must be a tall drink o' water!! That's a pretty good group considering you were shooting straight down. Glad you didn't blow off a toe!

Seriously, I had an HK 91 back in about 1980, thought it was a pig. Heavy, klunky, ugly, only so-so accurate, and mangled brass badly. I sold the gun......although from a purely 'investment' standpoint, I wish I hadn't. But an AR-10 is a vastly better rifle IMHO.

I would LOVE to have one.

Why?

Because sometimes I don't feel like making all that noise.

I had one many years ago and felt the same way although it was a good gun, it was too friggin heavy and not all too accurate.
