No, what threw me into paroxysms of avarice was that Colt Competition "Pro 18" on the left. With the eighteen-inch barrel and rifle-length gas tube and Geissele trigger, the thing shot like it was thought-controlled. Combined with the can it was wearing, it hardly moved under recoil. After running a couple mags through it, I had the wantsies so bad that I was a little dazed, else they would have needed a crowbar to get it out of my fingers.
Dear Santa: I have been very, very, very good this year...
(Also: First time I've used one of those 45° offset mini red dots combined with a low-power scope to shift back and forth between closer and farther targets. That's a pretty trick little feature.)
