Guns are just tools. Americans, many it seems, seem to think they are penis extensions. They are not. However, they are great for hunting game.

Machine guns, not so much. A rabbit shot by an AK47 probably is not worth skinning and roasting. Smile

It was split to give people a place to talk about guns without having to wade through multiple posts by penisless munchkins from Oz.

No, an AK47 is not a great tool for hunting rabbit for food. It's a passable tool for hunting feral pigs though. Although I prefer the more powerful 308 for that task. Better yet a good old 45-70 lever gun.

I'd use my SKS for hunting rabbits..... It'd be easy to headshot one out to 50 yards offhand...... (I've got a really nice Russian one - 1 inch groups at 100 yards)....

It'd beat trying to brain the rabbit with a rock.....

Hey I began this thread and have worked as both hunter and fisherman. Shot pleyty of pigs and roos. So I hope this Aussie stuff is not aimed at me. (Pun intended)

Pretty sure he means the story version of Oz (with dorthy and toto and the lot) - rather than the more literal version....

I had a model 23 for a while, but got rid of it. I of a very few guns I've owned and not kept. I tried to like it but never could get use to the damn feel of the trigger. I've shot some other striker fired guns like Sigs and M&Ps, but just didn't like the feel. The 320 has a whole different feel for me. It's more like a 1911 or HiPower than a Glock. One thing I am worried about is the 320 I bought does not have the trigger safety you see on a lot of other striker fired weapons. I understand you can get them with the trigger safety, but the one I ordered doesn't have one. That causes me some concern about unintentional discharges...

With an unloaded weapon -- practice drawing from your holster -- with your trigger finger on the frame above the trigger.......... Do it a couple thousand times (seriously) till it becomes ingrained.....

I did it yesterday - when I drew my revolver on a buck that snuck up on me.... I was very pleased with myself to find my finger along the frame, and not on the trigger.......

..

I shoot a lot, biker. More than most. I try to go to the range at least twice a month. Every time I go I put at least 50 rounds through a handgun plus whatever long guns I brought. I've got a Kimber Pro Carry II with 10K plus rounds through it. So many rounds that I had to replace the aluminium feed ramp with a steel one.

I've had exactly one unintentional discharge in 45 years of gun handling. I was adjusting the trigger pull on a Savage model 12. It's a bench gun. I turned it down so far that as soon as I touched it the gun fired. The gun was already pointed at the target before I touched the trigger, and the errant round went within an inch of where I wanted to go. That doesn't stop me from being concerned over a new gun with features I'm not use to...

Here's the model 12. It's a LRPV with a 26" 7 twist barrel in 223. Right bolt left port single shot. It'll put 80 grain SMKs loaded a couple thousands off the lands in the same 1/2 hole all day long at a 100 yards. It's box stock, but it is by far the accurate rifle I own. The other guys cuss every time I show up with it at a high power match with it because they know it shoots as good or better than their custom guns that sometimes cost thousands more.

I've got a friend that uses an SKS for deer. I prefer a 22 for rabbit. My deer rifle is a 700 with a 20" barrel in 308.

We're only allowed "toy rifles" in this area..(for deer).. It used to be "shotgun only" -- but we're allowed rifles chambered in proprietary straight walled pistol cartridges.. They have to be over .357 bore...... I'm using a H+R handirifle in .357 mag for ranges out to 120 yards. Past that range, a 12 gauge rifle I built a few years ago.... I'm quite confident with it out to 250 yards.. (4 inch groups) I use the Hornady SST sabots, that put a 300 grain .50 caliber boat tailed bullet out at 2100fps. (according to my chronometer)

I got a deer with the .357 mag at about 75 yards on opening morning - and took out the back of the left lung, the upper chambers of the heart and the front of the right lung..... Shred city..... The bullet did not go through - but I never found it either..... Pretty impressive for a pistol cartridge...

I really like it.. Nice and light - easy to carry..... Almost no recoil.

Edit to add...

I missed it -- the bullet DID go clean through -- it was just a lot lower than I'd anticipated.... Weird too -- the exit hole was lower than the entry -- and the entry, not the exit was covered with blood....

First time for everything....

RE: The gun thread. Enthusiasts only.
The 700 began life as a youth model I picked up at Gander Mountain for about $200 several years ago. I really like the 20" barrel, but I don't think Remington makes a 700 in 308 with a 20" barrel any more. The stock is actually a laminate. Each side is a single piece of walnut with a carbon fiber stiffener sandwiched between the two. I glass bedded it and put a Timney trigger in it. Without the scope it's about 7 lbs so it is a little lighter than a CDL and handles like a model 7.
