I just got a 30 round internal mag to tinker with,

Chicom, it's got the star on the side, and looks like

it'll be fun to try.


If 7 ever gets bored with extreme accuracy, well, I guess

there are other forums where you can make friends,

instead of constantly flaming and trolling.
But, I guess it

hasn't occurred to him by the lopsidedness of my

replies, that

he's been on my "ignore" list for the last week or so.

No, bechrest shooting isnt the "devil's work" but neither is owning a lowly SKS or Mosin... Last time I checked this was still America, and we're all allowed to like stuff for different reasons...
Im not opposed to quality guns, I have my Weatherby and Winchesters.. Yes there accurate and fun to shoot, but they dont interest me like the old milsurps, like I said before, I like how different they all are... Whats wrong with that?
Personally I enjoy collecting all the "stuff" for the military rifles too, like the cleaning kits, tools, bayonets, web gear, old ammo, etc.... I find it fun to shoot my M1903 with its M1905 bayonet affixed, being loaded with clips from my M1910 cartridge belt and my M1907 sling wrapped around my arm.. I think its kinda neat looking though the 70 yr old PU scope on my Mosin, wondering what that solider was thinking back in the middle of WWII.. (Im sorry its the only "Sniper rifle" I can afford... )

I have a 1940 Ford car too, even though it doesnt ride as nice, or go as fast, or get the gas mileage of a modern car, I still think its a very "interesting" car....

I would like to know how that works out. I had heard the 20 rounders with the star were "iffy". I have the tapco stock & a few mags, but i like having options, especially ones that would go nicely with my other stock.


Trez, I haven't had as good a bumper as my 65 beetle did since i lost it. That thing could bounce a garbage can at least 10 yards without a scuff.

Its all about who's shooting the gun... I found this about Carlos Hathock's rifle..

Quote:
“Snipers today talk about half-minute of angle. Carlos Hathcock’s rifle barrel looked like it had been sandblasted. On the inspection sheet, you’d say, ‘Slight pits throughout.’ His rifle would hold about two minutes of angle. That’s 20 inches at 1,000 yards and that’s what he had to work with.

“We had M1Cs and M1Ds available that would hold a minute of angle, but they didn’t maintain their zero.
“But Carlos’ rifle maintained its zero day in and day out.”

I had a BB gun when I was younger,

(and my eyesight was better, hands steadier)

I could hit the center of a dime a 50 yards on a cold

shot. You pump enough rounds through a single rifle,

your hand-eye co-ordination resolves the ballistics naturally.

@18,000 rounds into that Daisy, and I could hit gnats flying.

Hey, 60,000 rounds plus, and 40 years later, and that Daisy 25

is still shooting.

Trez, I read your thread about the USMC sniper rifles, and I thought it was cool as hell. If any of you haven't, do it now!

http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f108/usmc-sniper-rifles-62716/

You raise an interesting point about accuracy. Just 50 years ago an accurate rifle was 2 or 3 inches at 100 yards, even my beloved Model 70. I've read articles about PH's over in Africa that said even shooting 9 inches at 100 yards was good enough to take an elephant with (although I wouldn't recommend that!)

Maybe it was the shooter more than the gun, but I've just never seen the imported mil-surp that really made me say "I gotta have one of these!" I think spray and pray was no casual observation.

If you all like them, more power to you, and I'm glad you can enjoy the shooting sports. But I don't have any interest in them.

That is a very entertaining thought. Thank you.
