I'm glad you guy's liked that photo. I'm sure a full blown pissing match could be instigated easily with a "which battle rifle is best" question. No doubt the G3/HK91 is a dated operating system, but one can't argue that it is a very robust, reliable and precise battle rifle. Obviously there are lots of options out there for different jobs, but I wouldn't hesitate to take my HK 91 into any "situation". Mine shoots 1" groups at 100 meters, can run when it is absolutely filthy and will make threats "stay shot" with rounds on target.
