Well i did own a GSG-5 22LR Rifle but I decided to sell it to my friend because I wanted to put that money towards the Smith & Wesson M&P15 PSX. I'm actually glad I did because after my buddy took it to the range and shot the crap out of it things started breaking on it. Casing ruptured in the chamber causing the breech housing to rupture.
He got angry about it but not towards me because before I sold it to him I took him to the range and it shot flawlessly. It wasn't until he started going to the range all the time without even cleaning the rifle and that was when problems started to occur. I felt bad for him so I offered to help him disassemble the breech housing and order the parts for him.

Yeah I have another buddy...or I should say more of an acquaintance that thinks Romanian AK's and Dragunovs are superior over any AR-15 or M1A. I told him those are cheaply made with low quality inferior materials.
He doesn't even own any guns and has so much to say regarding the firearms I buy and prefer. He says BS remarks like "AK's are better and Dragunovs are cooler looking". That is why he prefers them. Personally I think he's just another jealous and dumb Armenian.

It didnt take a wrong turn. We had an amicable discussion regarding those things mentioned.

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?
