Well I was watching "Tales of the Gun" on the History Channel this afternoon. The featured weapon was the M16 rifle and they told the history of this rifle and the developement. As we all know this rifle was invented by Mr. Eugene Stoner who was an employee of an aircraft company during that time. They featured the big blunder and the baptism of fire of this rifle during the Vietnam war. While I was waching the show I can't help to recall the "kwentong barbero" about the M16. My fathers freind who was a retired army Sgt. kept on bragging that the M16 was invented by a Filipino named Armando lite and the idea was later sold to U.S. Well I wish I can give my fathers freind a copy of this film to enlighten him;f I am not degrading our inventors as I know we have several inventors who are known to the world and I am proud of them. Well I guess the myth of Armando Lite still prevails in the back country of the Philippines. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
