Firearm Forum Recess Time. Into the mind of an internet gun

Thought I'd lighten things up abit. Hope noone minds: If you guys have never heard of the legend of Gecko45, here is your opportunity. This guy is a legend. The first time I read through this years ago, I laughed hysterically. I give you this laughter. Behold the Legend of the Mall Ninja... http://w...

... They are also pretty accurate. Mine was shooting around 1 ½” – 2 ½” at 100 yards with iron sights. It’s probably more accurate than that, but shooting a rifle with a steel butt plate in a prone position hurts, and I’m positive that was affecting my accuracy. That is actually amazing accuracy fo...

Since I have a wife and two 3 year old twins to protect, I'd say that limits my option to a stationary one.

Is that a semi-auto shotgun? The sling looks like the original M1 Garand sling. Yep. The shotgun is a semi. Very smooth cycle. VERY reliable. If you are referring to the sling on the AR, it would resemble the original Garand sling. It was originally designed for the '03 Springfield, but was also us...

Very nice assortment! Looks like you have all your bases covered. Is there a reason you perfer full stocks? For some reason it seems everyone on this forum has gone with the collapsible/folding thing for their tactical shotguns and rifles. That's an interesting sling for the AR although it kind of ...

Too bad I heard they stopped importing those. Who told you that and when? I think they were effected by the Big Scary Gun(tm) ban of '94. But since that's gone they should be A-OK. :D I think you might be confusing the '94 AW Ban with the '89 Import Ban. The '89 Ban banned the importation of certai...

Come to think of it, they would make an ideal defensive position in this kind of SHTF scenario. Very ideal, in fact. Is it just me, or are you darkly chuckling when you say that? :D Welcome!

For those who want an alternative to the Saiga, the Romanian AK's are also good stuff. I just bought one from AIM surplus for $279.00 plus shipping and recieving fees. I'll second the recommendation for the Romanian versions to anyone looking for an economical/high capacity AK series rifle. From wh...

I picked up a M11/9 a few years ago. Okay, it's not an "assault rifle, but it is select fire/Title II. Went through all the fingerprint cards, local approval, tax stamp, 4 month wait, etc., so it is legit. More of a range-toy than anything else. Without a rate reducer this thing is a bullet-hose at ...

Springfield makes a "G.I." model that is pretty basic and would allow for customization. Keep in mind, you will end up spending more over the long run customizing a basic 1911 than you would if you bought a "custom production (ie., Kimber, Springfield Loaded, etc.)" pistol out of the box. (Not sure ...
