Lucky Gunner sponsored a technical writing contest, had the staff pick the very best articles, and had the site readers select the ultimate winners. Great reads on a variety of topics. There are excerpts featured with an internal link that takes you to the full submission. GOOD STUFF!

Those were some interesting reads, but I'm still going with our work. They don't have Mortis.

Yes, there were some interesting concepts although I did not take the time to read the complete articles since I have to leave soon to consume turkey at my daughter's in Tulsa.

In saying I probably missed something let it be known that the US Military has never completely removed 7.62X51 rifles from their inventories.

The M14 is still a viable combat weapon since many of the problems discovered in Vietnam have been corrected.

Few people can properly hit a target at 500 yards with an M16XX, especially with open sights but it is very possible with the M14. Add optics and it becomes a superb combat weapon.

Drawback is 20rd magazine, and weight of both weapon and ammunition.

As far as being full auto capable, the M14 takes a serious amount of training before one should move the selector to rock and roll. It is nearly totally unmanageable in that configuration especially without an A3 stock.

I did like the one comment concerning picking a handgun in that it must fit comfortably in the hand. I've seen more than one person on the range shooting handguns that poorly fit their hands but purchased it because either the salesman said everyone was shooting that handgun (normally a Glock), or their best bud said it was the one to buy and they would get use to the ill fit.

My congratulations to the top writers as they did their homework.
