    Default If assault rifles are so deadly.....

    why is it that soldiers whom earned the most confirmed kills in every conflict from WW1 to the present used bolt action rifles? If you look into military history nearly every soldier who made headlines for racking up the most kills used a bolt action rifle and operated as a sniper. Chris Kyle liked a bolt action 300 Win Mag. Carlos Hathcock used a bolt action 308 in Vietnam. That Finish sniper who whacked a lot of Russians during the Winter War used a Mosin-Nagant variant without a scope. I could sit here forever and list highly decorated soldiers who earned above average combat kills with bolt action rifles during wars where semi and full auto were the most common rifles on the battle field.

    Apples and Oranges. Combat, spray and pray vs potentially long distance shots.

    By definition, one of the features of an assault rifle is the capability to fire in full auto.


    A 2 wheel drive pickup looks visually identical to a 4 wheel drive pickup, but that doesn't make it a 4x4.

    Well I was actually trying to point out that "assault rifles" aren't as deadly as people make them out to be. After reading my original comment I can understand why people might not understand the point I was trying to make.

    You must not understand how a "confirmed kill " works....

    Everyone understood.

    The point I'm trying to make is that they aren't assault rifles, so we shouldn't be calling them that.
