Ok, this is a little exessive.
 
The tacticool style rifles have never been my favorite, but I can see their place and respect those who choose to go that route.

But I just made a stop over at Mossberg.com and saw a whole new level of hideousness and blasphemy.:)

A tactical lever gun.:eek:

Call me old fashioned, but its terrible. I think I may need to lie down.:rolleyes:
Plus it looks cheap, does anybody even like this thing?

I got to admit...that made me chuckle a little.

Different strokes and all that.

Remember...someone also came out with the "tactical" twice barrelled shoot gun a couple of years ago with a fiber optic bead up front, poly stock, and a rail section slung under the barrels.

It was/is intersting..but for less money you can buy a Mossberg or Maverick, which are functional as all hell, though not "sexy".

Buy what you want...I just kind of like that we have so many choices in the things we want to shoot.

BUT...yeah...that tacticool lever gun....that just makes me chuckle.

That's the one I mentioned above.

I was discussing SHTF rifles with a young friend a while back.

I suggested a Colt AR-15 with ACOG or Aimpoint.

He agreed that the Colt was undoubtedly the best answer to his needs, but then informed me that he had decided on a Mini-14 Ranch rifle with 10 pounds of bling on it because it was just so "cool."

He just couldn't understand why I didn't appreciate "cool factor."

I can kind of see the purpose of the coach gun, some people like them for HD and it has the provisions for a light. Not saying I would buy one though.

That Mossberg is for lack of a better word, stupid.

I completely agree, with one caveat. That Marlin took stupid to places it has never known existed and molested it with retarded. Whoever designed that and decided to market it should be beaten with it. That Marlin? That's like putting a fat chick in a string bikini. Just because you CAN do something does NOT mean you SHOULD do it.

Wow, just wow lol. That lever action, not my taste. To each his own though.
