Gun talk! :D Anything related to guns.

I assume this is going to basically be me and Hazim though... Any of you other gun nuts want to come out of the woodwork to discuss?

What platform would you build your "perfect" long range (400m/y+) rifle on?
-Scope specifications?
-Rifle specifications? Rifle MOA (if you know,) caliber, action type, iron sight type, stock material and type, etc.
-Any mods?

What I recently found out: It's a pain in the butt to use a Garand rifle grenade. Seriously. You have to waste a whole clip of ammo to pop in a blank.

I was trying to avoid the topic of killing people...

Guns don't kill people, fathers with pretty daughters do. :P

Haha yeah. I didn't go to my prom...

But I don't know nothing about guns. I do like the Desert Eagle though.

Ooo, that's a very pretty gun Gabe.

I really want to get my hands on a Springfield Armory M6 Scout survival rifle. Out of production, but very sexy indeed. .22LR or Hornet upper, .410/45 Colt lower. Single shot, and you can quickly shoot both barrels with the flip of a switch. I believe it comes tapped with scope mounts, in stainless, Parkerized, or with the 1000 gun limited edition of woodland camo. :D






It also comes in pistol and Carbine form!

I think I'd like the M6 Scout in .22 Hornet, but I only have .22LR on hand...

Hmm... what do you guys think? The best birthday present EVER?!

Hey it's the only gun I like. I don't know much about other guns. *shrug*

lol... tactical.

Dude, saying something is "tactical" is quite a joke. The proper term is "tacticool."
