    So what kind of Evil Black Rifle do you like. Personally I'm torn between ARs, AKs, and M1As. If I had to take just one, probably an AR though, mostly because I have the most trigger time on one. What say you.

    You are obviously talking about military style carbines. I'd have to say the M2 is my favorite. It'sthe FA version of the M1. The AR is the only one I've heard referred to as a "Black Rifle".

    I don't have one. It's not that I don't like them, it's that I don't have enough experience. So why am I even responding? Bored, I guess.

    Well, out of what I have experience with, I'd definitely go with the AK. Hard hitting round, good enough accuracy for out to 150 yards or so, and ammo is cheap and plentiful (well, not anymore, good thing I stocked up), and it's so simple and reliable in operation.

    If I had any experience with a G3/CETME rifle, I'd probably have to choose between the two, but not even having shot it, I don't know if I'd like it or not. Looks good on paper and in videos, etc, though......

    Eh, so I'm a fanboy.

    AR's are nothing special because everyone has one and I'm getting sick of seeing them, plusit's an American design, therefore it must be junk. AK's are great guns, but considering that they're the #1 choice of poor people worldwide, I'd hesitate to pick it as my favorite. The SKS is by far the best bang for the buck, but I don't think it quite meets "EBR" standards. Never got to shoot a FAL, but a friend of mine has one and he loves it.

    I've had a lot of experience with a certain mil-surp Winchester M1 carbine and it's a blast.

    I also love shooting the AR15 (longwatch you may have seen that out at that shoot) but I've only been shooting an AK since summer of last year.

    I can't decide. I like them all!

    I like my FAL.:celebrate It shoots a .308 and doesn't seem to kick any harder than my SKS. Only downside is it's getting too expensive to shoot it. Of course that's the case with almost everything.

    From among those listed, I'd go with the FAL. I like the full-sized battle rifles over the "assault" variety.
