IMHO, rifles and pistols are "job specific", kinda of like we are. We each are good at "something" and we are hired for that skill set. Each firearm is a 'specialist' in doing "X". For long distance I prefer the Swede. Flat and fast. Mid range the AR comes out of the bag. Up close and personal it's the SKS. For the dinner table it's the JRC 9mm or the 10/22 and soon the 22 mag Henry lever. Each has it's strengths and weakness.

True that, but I would personally place the SKS at mid-range and the AR for more up close and personal tasks or getting down and dirty in an urban environment.  dance2

Had some sub moa groups at 300 yards with 556.  It can reach out and touch a foo with great accuracy.  In the Marines, I scored expert using iron sights hitting a man size target 9 outta 10 times at 500 meters.

I also did pretty well with 5.56 ammo and iron sights at distance and qualified sharpshooter when in the Army, but I was basing my opinion on size/weight and maneuverability of the weapon more than MOA accuracy.  Valuatin' the complete package... :P

When I was in JROTC, I qualified as Sharpshooter using a M-16.  That was the highest we could get.  The rules said that you couldn't get Expert as a JROTC cadet.  The instructor at Ft. Devins said that my scores would have qualified for expert, if I were active duty, reserve, or NG.  I also qualified sharpshooter with a pistol during that time and was on the school's marksmanship team.  We shot .22 and .177 air rifles and pistols, as well as .22 bolt action rifles. When I was at Benning, I never got the chance to formally qualify due to my prior discussed medical condition diagnosis and subsequent discharge.

Getting back to the subject of furniture sets, check out these ones from Ironwood Designs.  They have that old school M-16 triangle handguard complete with the heat venting holes.  The examples in the pics on their site would lead one to believe the M-16/AR-15 was supposed to have wood on it from the start.
