KISS Carbine Idea
If you haven’t heard of the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) carbine it is basically a bare bones AR15. Now the whole idea is that there are now batteries to die and no moments where the user panics because there are two many gizmos and whatchamacallits on the rifle. Personally, I think it’s stupid. I’ve seen borderline retards handle a PEQ-15, PVS-14, and an ACOG on a M16A4 with two combat instructors screaming at them and they did it just fine. Don’t sell yourself short about what you can do and setup your rifle with what you’re confident with, and don’t buy a Vietnam/IDF AR15 because you think a optic is to complex.
