OK - I know I'm getting an AR-10. I'm looking at the 16" barrel, flat top with a "faux" collapsable stock. Can that be done? I don't think the stock would get me in trouble?!?!? Looking at a holographic sight for the flat top, my stinking is that it ought to be a good deer rifle and have the needed "badboy" looks if needed for defense! Has anyone out there have one that can give me some advice? Looking at Armlite, but heard of DPS(?) Panther arms? Anyone know of these? I know asking you ladies is the right thing to do as I deeply respect your knowledge and experiance. The ladie - girl thing is a leftover from my Army days - sorry can't help it!! All in good fun ladies!
