I think we need a new thread in the General forum called Dumbest Post of the Day. You sir should be the first one on it.
While the MN isn't a good looking rifle. It is built to withstand anything from -60* to thermonuclear war to Zebra hunting. They have a good range, they are cheap and ammo is plentiful. I think the highest price I have seen one go for was about $150 You can get ammo for 23 cents a round. Hell I can't load 556 that cheap. Not only can I shoot you from 6 football fields away I can stab the piss out of you at 3 football fields.
Not everyone can afford a $1500 AR with optics, speedloaders, and tactical treat containers.
Just about everyone can afford a MN. Just look at what the Russians did to Germany with a bunch of old clunker bolt guns. Germans had superior weapons, superior troops, Superior tanks.
Let me think about this. Would you rather face....
A. 600,000 Americans armed with this old clunker bolt gun.
