Michael Bane has written an interesting blog post on the shift in the perception of what a rifle is or should be.

If you read gun blogs and forums as well as owning a few of your own tacti-cool guns, it is easy to think everyone values the black rifle. I agree with Michael that only recently are we seeing the black rifle go mainstream.

However, in truth, nearly every type of rifle was originally designed for the battlefield.
