    Sorry about the quality.

    I just forwarded Betty two pictures of my Colt and my Marlin. Sorry for the quality, guys.

    I\'m just learning how to use my digital camera, and while I\'m getting better, some situations are real puzzlers.

    On these, I wanted to show the full length (or handiness) of the barrels. They are about the same overall length. However, when full shots registered, the detail appeared muddy.

    Still, when it comes to defense, both rifles have their special qualities. It depends on whether I\'m hunting, or being hunted.

    But then, I view both with the same flush of enthusiasm. :kay:

    The AR15 is hard to beat for a close to mid range weapon. There are so many choices and parts for them that they can be set up almost any way you want.
    Other choices are FAL, M1A, HK91/G3, AR10 for longer range.
    Short range would be an AK47/AKM, SKS, CETME.

    Of these for long range I\'d go M1A or FAL, mid range a AR15 rifle or carbine and for short range an AKM. Find friends that have the different models and try them out to see which type fits you best.

    Most important is to know the good points and faults of your choice. These may be a gun is too long or powerful for urban work, too short for rural ranges, rounds for it not flat shooting enough, rounds lack wounding power at long range, etc. After you get it make sure all your mags work (AR\'s are bad for this), you sight it in and know where it shoots and that it\'s reliable and jam free for hundreds (at least) of rounds. After all this then you can call it a tactical rifle.

    I can only put up a few teaser shots right now. Don\'t have a digital camera and haven\'t taken pics of some of the newer guns. Took these 2 or 3 years ago with a borrowed camera ---

    DPMS Panther Bull 20\" -


    Another shot of the DPMS -


    Springfield Armory M1A-A1 Bush -

    Does a shotgun with rifle sights count? Works great with 12-gauge slugs!!

    Nice toys Extreme Velocity and Betty. Is the Beretta 1200FP come from SOG? That looks just like mine and that\'s where mine came from.

    Got the Beretta from a guy in California back in \'93 or so. It was new in box and the price was right! He said they were banning them out there. (???)

    Thank you, Betty.

    I appreciate Betty posting my digital shot. What I do find unusual is the number of members here who all seem to be building flat tops with high quality glass, and in some cases, varmint barrels.

    It appears you guys are quite serious about your black rifles.

    APachon,

    I\'m using a Leupold 3.5x10 VarX-II with turret knobs.

    While that might seem a bit mundane for prairie dogs, vision is still very good at distances. And of course, you have to crank the thing down for coyotes.

    While it probably will never happen, scopes in this range are the best for \'glassing'and human sized targets. But then, never say never.

    BTW, the flat-top is a ***** cat. It also seems to eat everything. I\'m hoping the 52 V-Max bullet over A/A2230 is the \'magic bullet,'pun intended.

    This is real close to what my new one will look like:


    Will be using an A2 upper receiver and most likely a 10.5\" heavy barrel (instead of the A1 upper and 11.5\" bbl shown in photo). Just waiting for my approval from the BATFE. :)
