Watching an American Police shootout with bankrobbers on the reality TV I was bloody suprised to see the Texas police on the opposite roof were armed with SA 80's. No mistake as they showed them pretty close up. Don't tell me someone from the USA bought these already having the vastly superior M16. I have fired both and there is no comparison[although not the modified and much needed updated SA80].Still there must have been a good saleman out there because the early ones were crap hence the Special Forces not touching them although I notice the Booties and Paras seem happy with the updated one. Just wondered as no other Army[Aussies etc] will touch them . I have long advocated the UK buying the USA small arms at a tenth the price of what the SA80 cost the taxpayer but that's the MOD as usual.
