Why not?

It was a legit question. I was wondering what made you pick one over the other. The ACR seems to have more teething problems and failed promises. While the SCAR is swimming along happily like a big stupid looking fish.

Until I read the aussie part I was going to say I have one of those completely disassembled, fire control group and all, in a bag I haven't touched for 2 years. Tried to assemble it and couldn't, got a few friends to try, also no luck. Simply dismissed it for the most part.

How much you want for the bag o' gun?

Also, going through my gun picture folder is always bad for me. This guy made a few bad choices, but overall it is a good gun.

I think I really want a Benelli M2 or M4 with an urbino stock and ghost ring sights. I think it would be better to save up for a new shotgun instead of lusting after another AR15. Besides shotguns are way more fun than anything else.



Or just a regular M2.

It's 13"x18"x6" or so and I can fit four 1911s in one.

Also, I think I want the 226 .22 instead of the conversion because two guns is better than one. Plus that gives me a DAK gun and a SA/DA gun.

Depending on what you want to spend, those data recorders go for around $75-$80 shipped quite often. Zeros seem to go a bit higher, unless they're beat up. Only takes a few minutes to strip out the guts, 4 screws for the main board and the pocket in the lid pulls out easily. Search for "1770SB" or "STR link", those are the two common ones.

Thanks. I will keep the search going.

gently caress it. I got impatient and bought one for $70.

I can't get the idea of a Sako TRG22 with a folding stock out of my head.

Failing that I just read an article on Demigodllc about a folding stock for the Tikka T3 that would be really cool also.

This perfectly combines my desire for a gun to play S.T.A.L.K.E.R. with, a pistol caliber carbine, and an AK pattern rifle. I hope it is reasonably priced when it comes out so I can slap a micro dot on top and bang away at my steel targets all day. Also that would look wicked with an upside down osprey suppressor on it.

I'm still flip-flopping between 6.5CM and .260Rem. Then there's the part of me that says "gently caress it. Build it in .308 now, and get a second upper in 6.5xWhatever when I can afford all the reloading poo poo."

I have read some stuff saying that 6.5 Creedmoor has the edge when fitting in a magazine. Also the name is cooler sounding and I like the options for preloaded ammo that I have seen. But really if I ever bought that rifle I would start loading soon after because it would be stupid not to.

Truck guns are a very real necessity for many people, but I really suspect the vast, vast majority of TFR doesn't fall into that group. I can think of one poster who I'm pretty sure would have a real use for one, and I suspect that there might be a couple more.

As someone who lives in a low population density, low crime area, and who occasionally needs a gun in his truck the correct answer is a good bag with handles so you can easily move the gun between house and truck. Also the correct choice for a truck gun is the same as any other gun you would want to perform whatever task you imagine. If shooting animals make that your primary criteria. If something else make that what you base your choice on. If you want an SBR just buy one and stop pretending like you have to justify your purchases. You are a grown man so spend your money on what you want.

Not directed at you. Just at QuarkMartial and the conversation as a whole. He keeps coming up with thinly veiled excuses for needing a tiny gun when it would be a poor choice for a truck gun.

You can't really shoot most animals from your vehicle in the US so a truck gun would have to be used from outside the truck unless you are just shooting it from the car just because.

Yeah I mostly shoot rabbits with it out the window. Useful for other things too though:

I have no beef with short guns. I just think deciding on a feature set based on something that someone is not going to be doing is silly when they could buy a gun that is better at what they are actually going to be doing with it. Especially when things like a serbu shorty are being talked about and people are saying they want to keep a gun in their truck just because they think it is cool.
