I stock up on ammo accidentally, I'll have some spare money and before I know it I have more ammo .
I stock up because it's cheaper to buy in bulk.
I stock up on ammo because it looks great on a shelf.
I haven't really tinkered with one yet, haven't been to the gun store recently. I'm most likely just going to save up like $400 then head over there and check out a ton of stuff, then buy what I think is comfortable. I was just checking about the Mk.III because I haven't heard a lot of good about most of Ruger's handguns.
mark 2 and 3s are rather good actually
Ruger makes good revolvers (though the LCR is debatable) and decent 22 handguns. It's the centerfire Semi-auto handguns I'd say away from (the LC9 is their only semi-handgun I'm remotely interested in).
Mark II's n III's like Prussel said are pretty good. I'd check out the Browning Buckmarks while you're at it, they're a good (albeit slightly more pricey) alternative to the Ruger 22's.
On thing they've got in common is they're both a pain in the ass to disassemble and clean. Just watch some of the Youtube videos of people stripping them and you'll see what I mean.
I did watch a disassembly of the Mk.III, didn't seem all that bad, but that's just basing it off of a video.
at My local nightclub sucks, I'm serious, I wouldn't even try to assassinate Sarah Connor in there if you get my drift.
Is Heritage Arms a good manufacturer?
If so, is $150 an acceptable price for a Heritage Arms .22LR "Rough Rider" revolver?
What do you guys find to be the best .22LR ammunition? As in, what is the cleanest and most accurate?
I go to a wal-mart, grab the first box of 500 I see for around $20, and buy it.
Alright, forget the Mk.III, I can get a 10/22 for a flat $200.
Eh. If I'm going to buy a non-surplus firearm it's going to be new. Thanks for the info though
I think I'm going to either go with the AK-47 or the 3.5x Sniper 91/30
I was leaning heavily towards the shotgun and .22LR pistol, but I realized that I couldn't take the shotgun range shooting so it'd be pretty much useless until someone broke into my house, and since I'm not 21 I'd have to get a friend to buy the pistol for me and I don't want to go through all that mess again. It was enough fuss with the nagant revolver.
When I was younger it was like $15 but I think the price has gone up to about $19 to $22 for a 550 count box.
Get the Ruger MKIII. There are videos on how to remove the magazine disconnect and the nub that prevents the mag from dropping.
Anyone of you have guide for assembling a Remington Nylon 66 aka All the worst ideas ever into one rifle?
I guess my Walmart is just shitty, then
.223 is the same as 5.56x45, right?
There are small differences, but using the different types will most likely cause minor failures.
It won't cause catastrophic failures, but you'll get some accurcy and feeding issues. As you always should is buy whatever ammo it says on your gun. If it says .223 buy .223, if it says 5.56x45 then you buy 5.56x45.
Same deal with 7.62x51 and .308 win.
They are interchangeable, but it's not recommended.
Also, ANYONE know how to re-asseamble a fuckin' Nylon 66?
I swear the devil himself made this rifle.
For all intents and purposes, yes. There are some testing requirements (standards) like waterproofing and a few other things, but other than that they are they same
We should make a thread for Faze and Prussle to fight in, so when they start fighting all we need to say is, 'take it to the thread boys'.
different tapering/angling too..
Prussel and faze are our own little tripfags in our miniature /k/
.223 and 5.56 are the same physical round, but 5.56 typically has higher chamber pressures.
Some people say that 5.56 is rougher on firearms designed for .223, but since most people buy AR's to shoot with its not an issue because pretty much all manufacturers build them for 5.56 specs.
