And I can't believe that my relatives sold the shirasaya my granddad got from a IJN officer to a collector after his death for money to pay for the funeral. What a bunch of ingrates.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

(Time to dust this one off and get it going again!)
I don't know if it was mentioned, but the Colt 1911 pistol is 100 years old this year! And still going strong!

That Utah's official "state gun" is the Browning M1911?

I didn't know that! Nor did I know you liked the 1911 either!

A nice rifle for sure Dalek Sec, I've seen them on the range when they have the WW2 rifle matches here on base. I have yet to shoot one though.

Just had the A-Bolt out and picked off some critters eating the freshly sewn grass.

I shot four all up with six shots. Had to finish two off so it was 100% accuracy!

Hands are all jittery from the adrenaline, been a while since I've actually shot something besides a paper target.

Heh, they were feathered, boned and filleted with a single hit...

But Wood Duck is a disgusting meat.

I'll let the foxes come for them then I'll shoot them too.

Wait. You mean when they could have afforded to give him a funeral anyway?

That IS kind of...wow.

Typical Asian mentality : WE need cash for that, but not out of MY pocket.

Finally ordered my Browning T-Bolt Varmint 22LR this afternoon.

Also put a Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40mm German #4 Reticle scope aside for it. Just need to track down some mounts when the rifle comes in and I'll be laughing.

We really (in a war perspective) need a new standard rifle for our infantry. The M4 series is just becoming to outdated compared to the world. Isreal with their Tar-21's. Russian AN-94's. It goes on.
If you think those M-16 s jam, you haven't seen SAR 21 yet...that hunk of plastic and metal makes the M-16 feel like a bloody AK-47

...And the reason why the AN94 is not so widespread is because the internal mechanisms are too complicated and too high maintenance to be issued to regular troops instead of just the Special Forces. Yes, the double-round system allows for very high rates of fire and the avant-garde flash hider does reduce muzzle rise, but the big counterweight is that the AN94 is not as easy to dismantle/put back together and service as, say, the M4/M16. Which is why the Russian Army prefers the AK74/AK100 series - they're less trouble for the "normal" soldiers.

And only an idiot, a complete ignoramus or a lazyass wouldn't maintain his weapon in proper state, regardless of its intrinsic ruggedness/rusticity. US troops in combat have repeatedly confirmed that the M16/M4, when properly - and regularly - serviced, doesn't jam much and can actually be quite reliable (it certainly allows more precise shots than the AK47 thanks to a flatter bullet trajectory). One reporter in particular (I must've cited/linked him in one of my previous posts in this thread) even stated that troops who frequently have to play bunny hop with and crawl through the Afghan irrigation ditches don't encounter catastrophic amounts of trouble when they get their weapons dirty...contrarily to what all those self-appointed gun pundits claim.

However, if you're recklessly clogging the barrel, the mag well or the ejection port with mud, talcum-like sand or hard soil with the preconception that you can abuse your weapon as much as you want without feeling sorry for it afterwards, then don't be surprised if something goes wrong once you pull the trigger. AR15 model or not, you're just asking for it.

The difference between the M-16 and the SAR-21 is that the M-16 can be cleaned 100% without armory tools - most of the parts can be removed by hand or with the stick. It is just that oil isn't enough to clean the spring in the rifle butt, you need Autosol to remove the rust before using oil to clean it again.

The SAR-21 is a brainless piece of engineering. The slide for the trigger group cannot be removed, the gas tap cannot be opened up, the battery cap falls off easily (and it costs $550 to replace), and the whole thing dies if there is mud or sand in the chamber which cannot be shaken out easily because the bolt group locks forward and seals the entire chamber. Sure it keeps the mud and sand out, but what if it already gotten in?

How can one even clean a weapon that doesn't have parts that come apart by hand?

So I've tried pistol shooting today. I expected to be kinda bad, but I'm not confident I can hit the broad side of a barn. Unless maybe I'm inside the barn.

Is eyesight important for that stuff?
