I am asked about rifles scopes and red dot sights often. Which one should I buy, is just under who should I marry in the overall importance, and very hard to answer for another person.

The DTI .308 is a carbine-length rifle with a 16-inch barrel and the standard AR-type gas impingement operating mechanism.

The pistol is similar to CZ 75-type handguns, but features a factory trigger that is as good or better than any the author has ever tested.
