    I'm impressed the armoured glass stood up to that, an RPG I'm guessing?

    good info Scout
    no my berreta was a standard 92f
    No problem.

    BTW The thread title: An Ar15 and an M4 are two different things.

    The AR-15 was first built by ArmaLite as a selective fire assault rifle for the United States armed forces. Because of financial problems, ArmaLite sold the AR-15 design to Colt. The select-fire AR-15 entered the US military system as the M16 rifle. Colt then marketed the Colt AR-15 as a semi-automatic version of the M16 rifle for civilian sales in 1963. The name "AR-15" is a Colt registered trademark, which refers only to the semi-automatic rifle.

    The M4 carbine is a family of firearms tracing its lineage back to earlier carbine versions of the M16 rifle, all based on the original AR-15 rifle designed by Eugene Stoner and made by ArmaLite. The M4 is a shorter and lighter variant of the M16A2 assault rifle, with 80% parts commonality.

    It is a gas-operated, air-cooled, magazine-fed, selective fire, shoulder-fired weapon with a telescoping stock. A shortened variant of the M16A2 rifle, the M4 has a 14.5 in (370 mm) barrel, allowing its user to better operate in close quarters combat. The M4 has selective fire options including semi-automatic and three-round burst (like the M16A2 and M16A4), while the M4A1 has the capability to fire fully automatic instead of three-round burst (like the M16A1 and M16A3). The carbine is also capable of mounting an M203 grenade launcher (the M203A1 with a 9-inch barrel as opposed to the standard 12-inch barrel of the M203 used on the M16 series) as well as its successor, the M320 grenade launcher.

    Technically, your Bushie is neither an AR15 nor an M4.

    Ill shut up now and grab my coat......

    As you were

    this is the inside of the subburban ,,in which the two members of my team were killed
    hit again by a daisy chain of EFP seven of them
    our medic was in the back ,,,he was wounded but ok
    it took a tem minuet fire fight to back them of inoff so we could get to them to help
    we killed most of them
    the only mabe good thing is that the two lads didnt feel a thing
    sorry i have a teer now

    Shame you couldn't have had a pic taken out there Ian, you could've posted that instead of the one outside a nightclub in Cardiff!
    He does look like he is dressed for a night out in the Diff and for going down chippy alley.
