Hey all -
I have a SCAR 17, to be honest I bought it mostly because of the cool guy factor. I live west of Boise (farmland, pastures, lots of wide open spaces, etc) so maybe I am justified in having a 308. Although after listening to the 556 v 308 podcast, I have been questioning that.
I enjoy shooting it, but I would enjoy shooting a well made AR15 just as much (possibly more, as there's a .20¢ difference in ammo cost).
My question to you folks with more experience is: is there any reason to keep the SCAR or should I sell it and get a KAC or Hodge?
I know the scope and general purpose of P&S is to facilitate and disseminate quality info and promote what you NEED, but honestly bro, “because I want one” is a valid reason too. I want a SCAR 17 SBR badly, just can’t afford it right now. Is it a need? No. It’s a want. Nothing wrong with that.
