Which one?
Full size.

MPMalloy: what does PCC mean?

RickOShea: Thanks for the info about the levers. I'll keep that in mind.
PCC=Pistol Caliber Carbine.

Ummm...how is that happening? I thought France had lots of laws against owning guns. Why would they allow any pistol competition on their soil?

Still, thanks for the head's up! Sounds cool!

Mon Dieu! A Review of French Gun Laws

http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2015/0 ... -gun-laws/

Category B – Subject to Authorization

Category B includes anything shorter than 47cm, including handguns, or semi-automatic, with a removable magazine and a capacity larger than three rounds, and requires a sports shooting license to own. How do you get a sports shooting license? Be an active shooting club member and hit the range at least three times a year, go see a doctor every year who attests that you are physically and mentally capable of owning a firearm and prepare for some major paperwork.

Once you have cleared the hurdles of French bureaucracy, prepare to rinse and repeat every three years, as category B ownership is contingent on a time-limited authorization that can be revoked at a whim by the local police. Case in point: pump-action shotguns. Once available to hunters in category C, they were reclassified to category B in 1995 because of their perceived use in violent crimes.

Good thing the French don't come on here much. The Canadians are always griping to the mods when you call them the 51st State or whatever.

We have so many Canadians down here for 4 to 6 months out of the year that we could be the 11th Province of Canada, instead of just the "Redneck Riviera". :rofl:

They seem to keep their heads down when they're down here in my area, but then again maybe they're just too exhausted from the humidity :crazy:

I think Night Probe and Sahara are the only Dirk Pitt books I've read.

I'm seriously considering putting that puppy on my Savage Model 93 .22 WMR bolt action. I currently have a Bushnell 3x9 on it which is just "okay" and I'd like to get something better, then this caught my eye... :ooh:

I could then thrill y'all with video of my paper punchin' prowess, and the occasional varmint in my buddy's fields.
