    Get it or no

    Okay, I am looking at this:

    http://www.atlanticfirearms.com/prog...asp?Prodid=268

    I don't need reasons not to get it (short barrel, prob. inaccuarate, it's just a "thang").

    I know, I know, but I get a discount (member of another board) and, well, I just want it.

    The biggest reason why I want it is to tick off the anti's.... big time. They see something like this and they wet their panties (male's also) and freak out.

    Was the only reason I bought the AB-10 (Tec-9 after the ban) just bacause.

    I know my reasons for buying guns right now is well, really "high school". Meaning, just buying the "evil guns" just to piss off the anti's.

    I can't help myself .

    So, what do ya'll think? I would get a real one (FA UZI) if they were this price including tax stamp, but overall, what do you think?

    I don't have much use for one of those, I prefer guns that I can actually hit the target with.

    I aim my money toward more practical weapons. Course, I don't have a ton of cash to blow either. It probably shoots like a cheapo $300 gun. It does look cool though. If you do buy it we want pics! I don't spend too much time worrying about the anti's opinions. At least I try not to let it influence my buying decisions. What anti folks are going to see it anyway?

    I can think of better things to do with $300+ dollars, like put it toward something more useful to shoot.

    Heck...

    $300 + a few more loose bills can put a nice E.O. Tech Holographic scope on something more practical to shoot.
    In fact, put it on an AR-15...make it the 'anti' special...if you're into that kind of thing.

    Personally, I want a real shooter, not a looker...
    I'd keep my guns hidden from a REAL 'anti'...out of sight, out of mind!

    OMO...your opinion may vary...

    Of course...I say go for it if you really want one and have the extra bucks for it.
    I'm all for anyone buying anything legal...just because they want it as the only reason needed.
    They are fun to shoot but, I don't know too much about the Atlantic version.

    I almost bought an uzi once took all of 30 seconds to decide not to.
    There are a lot of guns I would prefer to have and not enough money to go around.

    Thanks everyone for your input.

    *grin, I had a whole response written and just ereased it, changed my mind*

    I need to get the lower receiver for my AR-15 SBR that I am going to build so I'll get it first.

    It's $259 (so far, still looking at brands) so I'll get that first and then find the 10.5" upper style that I want and then get this if I am still inclined

    Thanks again,

    Wayne

    Smart move picking up the AR lower first. You'll have more fun with a rainy day project gun, than some Mac 10 clone (or whatever it was), that will probably sit in your gunsafe for as long as you have it.
    You'll also have to give us pics of your SBR when you get it complete :)

    I'm not rich enough to buy guns that I can't carry. Otherwise I'd buy a barrett. I have to say no its a waste of money.
