      Someone has been reading Sven Hassel novels, methinks
      Take these men and women for your example.
      Like them, remember that posterity can only
      be for the free; that freedom is the sure
      possession of those who have the
      courage to defend it.

      If you're not ready to die for it, put the word freedom out of your vocabulary.

                  Kite sight and grenade launcher is overkill. Kite sight itself weighs almost as much as the steyr...

                    Why is it called Kite site and not a Night Vision Scope?

                          Held a steyr with kite sights and m203 during the summer and I can tell ya that there is some weight in it.
