    Deep philosophical question.

    No.

    Assuming that it does not have more black on it than tan (or whatever colour), it's all good.

    :D

    Well here's another question then: If it's no longer an EBR is it still evil? If not, should it be legal in CA?

    EBR is a state of mind.

    Wouldn't that make it an evil tan rifle?

    It's all about the evilness. Black, tan, green, whatever. Color doesn't matter. It's the evilness that counts. Paint it pink and it still has all of it's evil goodness.

    Careful tenbase, I know a couple bars where ordering a "black and tan" will get you thrown out....through the window:uhoh: (Hint: It's called a Half and Half).


    Painting an EBR tan makes it an ETR, and if it is no longer evil it becomes a NTR (Nice Tan Rifle). Now if you paint it pink and chop the barrel you get a NPSBR....I could go on:eek: :rolleyes:

    The Evil lies not in the color, but in the heart of the beast, somewhere near the sear :D
    Colored EBRs are extra cool. Someday when I have a large flock of them I'll start having them custom coated.

    SBR??

    Mine must be a SBR because I have been waiting for it to do something EVIL, but it just sort of lays there. So it must be a Sissy Black Rifle.

    Once an EBR, always an EBR! However, they may go undercover to escape detection.

    The above rifle is pretty hot. I think it's worthy of Sexy Black Rifle status.


    I see now I am deficient in black rifles! All mine have wood furniture on them. Is my Evil Black Shotgun only dangerous out to a certain distance? Maybe I should load it with underpowered no.11 shotshells.

    I've seen tan rifles being used by the military on TV.
    I'd image they'd still be viewed badly.

    Enhanced Battle Rifle... paint it any color you want. Except for bright blue.

    Now, if you have a SUR, Sport Utility Rifle, you can paint it blue and put oversized wheels, or a bipod, on it. :D

    GotM4,

    Tell me about that selector switch you have on there. Do you like it? Is it easier/quicker to use than a standard switch?

    Thanks.

    Sorry for the late reply, it's a Rock River Arms 'star' safety. It's a little easier for me to move from safe to fire.

    I think with the involvement in the Gulf for the past decade or so, and the shift in our armed forces' color schemes, it's safe to say that...

    Tan is the new Black:)

    and that means it's still :evil: e v i l.

    The first requirement of an EBR is that it be a rifle. The second requirement is that it be black. Evil is a judgment call.
