We spent a little time on the range today with the Ohio Ordnance Works Heavy Counter Assault Rifle or HCAR.
It was outstanding. So much fun.
I say that not because this is the greatest firearm ever made. It’s not. It’s just a really cool gun story.
The HCAR is the brainchild of U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Sgt. Robert W. Landes III, whose father owns Ohio Ordnance Works. The company builds reproductions of historic weapons such as the Browning Automatic Rifle.
So Robert set out to bring the classic World War II weapon into the 21st century. The HCAR became available for sale this month, and it was on the floor at Modern Day Marine 2014.
