So I visited a friends house the other day to help lift a garden tiller out of the back of his truck. I had heard he had a nice collection of guns and wanted to see formyself. Needless to say, he is one of those ex-military guys who has guns just all over his house. He showed me at least 20 guns he had laying around. Also, he estimates his ammunition count to be somewhere between 20,000 to 30,000 rounds in various calibers (pistols, revolvers, and rifles). Well anyway, he showed me his SKS collection. I had never even thought of buying an SKS based mainly on how cheap they can be had for. I mean, you get what you pay for- right? The guy lets me take one home to shoot and see what I thought about it. Ohmagosh! Now, I haven't shot an extensive variety of semi-auto weapons, but I gotta say, wow, this one has the potency of a high-category narcotic. It is flat out addictive to shoot. I went through 50 rounds today, and I think I'm sold. I need this gun.
