Who's kidding? I can hit what I aim at, and put it down hard, which is NOT always possible with a .22, semi, bolt, or full auto.Originally posted by meme
and not kid myself about what I could accomplish with my rifle.
I AM saving for an SKS, actually two. In the meantime, food on the table becomes important.BTW, surplus ammo is very cheap in 7.62x54r.By saving 10c or so per shot, I could practice a lot and save money for an sks.
Really? Perhaps I should A) tell you it was a GIFT! (I posted the price for comparison), and B) don't tell me what to spend my money on. If all I had was $70, a nice battle proven design might be what I can get, especially if I can't get another $80 . Better a Mosin in your hand, than an FAL on the dealers shelves if and when you need it!You only need another $80 and the $70 you shouldn't have spent on a bolt action
Mosin M44s are still found as third line rifles in many countries. Why? They work well. Many pics were published of Viet Cong carying Mosin M44s, as well.(if what you wanted was fighting ability). The bolt action went out as a combat rifle in WW2, over 60 years ago, man.
Good thing your opinion isn't what I care that much about, Gunkid. Also good that I don't carry a rifle every day - I leave that for my CZ 75 PO1, one of the best 9mm on the market today. Next time read eerything before popping off - I am going to get better rifles, but when I can afford it. Food on the table is a little more important right now.Originally posted by meme
(or dont care) give them bolt actions. You wanna accept that sort of a handicap, be my guest. When people tell me that their lives , health, honor and freedom aint worth and "extra" $100, I tend to just accept their evaluation of what they are worth.
bwwahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!A good sks, with scope and good ammo, is sub 2" at 100 yds
