Every single one of these.

(I'd actually like an M39 in general, and I know where to find some, but they're ungodly expensive - over a grand each. I'm probably going to have to wait until someone puts one up cheaper, or I move back to Canada )

Content: I want another Savage Scout. I'm torn between .308 or 7.62x39. .308 obviously has a lot going for it, but I like the idea of having 2 rifles that use the same ammo.



Get the x39 and never look back.

And I had no issues with it. Well, I mean, there was nothing I didn't expect while firing a machine pistol versus a proper SMG. There was some rise but I sort of accepted that.

I shot a BAR a few summers ago - some really nice rich guy brought it and let me shoot it. They shoot great with easily controlled recoil - you feel like a one man army shooting that thing.

Wasn't it designed so that guys could run it up from one trench to the next while firing from the hip?
I feel like "what if we need a terminator to use it" should factor into all firearm designs.

Yes it was. I have this cool book that has pictures of all the web-gear that the army used from WW1 to the 80's, and it has a picture of a BAR belt from 1918 or so that had a little metal bracket at about 3:00 on the belt, designed to hold the stock while you fired at Jerry from the hip.

Good loving luck. The don't have a 'live' website. Nothing is in stock. It will be backordered with a long lead time. I'm going on 2 months waiting on a couple of AR uppers. Who the hell knows when I'll get them?

yeah i have no idea what pedantic bullshit that dude is babbling about. no one else on earth was confused and thought you conflated the M60 and the BAR by sixty years. just him. the constant pokemon thread poster. who has recently arrived here in gun town.

i have literally no clue what the gently caress he thought was gonna be proven by that weird semantic autism. we all got your implication that it was designed for hipfire, a technique which rambo made famous later on. we're all normal and got that idea.

I don't quite know what I was on about, either. I certainly didn't think he confused anything.

I have three. I had a fat. I got a lite as an upgrade. I later got a second lite from my sister who had no idea I already had one. I gave it to her; she later bought a special edition Zelda one and gave it back to me.

I also have a GBA and a GBA SP.


I also had all 490whatever pokermanz ca. the Diamond/Pearl era. I think my total play time across flash cart Diamond and Pearl saves, real Diamond, real Pearl, Platinum, LG, and Emerald came out to like 2800 hours.

Got a lot of down time in the trucks at work too. I'm kind of scared of adding it up between em/diamond/plat/HG/SS/bl/wh. I reset my plat to do a speed run with no trades. I should have just bought another cart.

I was mad as hell about mine being stolen. It was a thin, clear Gameboy that I put on layaway and worked my rear end off to earn. I eventually got another blue thin one, then a GBA, and a NES edition GBA SP (or whatever it's called). I bought SMB for the GBA SP and haven't really played it that much. It was fun, but also sort of ; especially when I could emulate a NES on my phone...
