    Stocking up on a half a garage of guns and ammo because "Hurr durr wurld end lol 2012" is retarded, you should be doing it because it pisses off Liberals, not because you're paranoid about an end that isn't coming.
    I stock up on ammo because it's a good thing to have. Doesn't matter if the world is or isn't going to end or what you believe. If it happens to, I'm ready. If it doesn't, I've got a lot of ammo to burn through for fun. It's a win-win

    I stock up because it's cheaper to buy in bulk.

    I'm looking for a good weapon with cheap/practical ammo. Not a debate on which is better.
    .308 ammo starts at 50 cents a round for brass stuff.

    If you want something cheap and practical while still being tacticool, you probably want an AR or a Mini-14

    I'm going to buy a Ruger Mk.III. If there are any objections, please speak now, or forever hold your peace.
    I'm assuming that this will be a quality purchase then?

    It's a good handgun.
    Have you tried it's magazine release? It's not a drop free release, you've got to pull it out once you pressed the mag release, some people don't like that.

    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.

    Yeah, the Mk3 is a great .22 pistol. I have one and I love it, only problem I have with it is that its a bitch to take apart.

    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.

    Is Heritage Arms a good manufacturer?

    If so, is $150 an acceptable price for a Heritage Arms .22LR "Rough Rider" revolver?

    I've been wanting one for a while now, from what I've seen they're pretty good, I've only heard of one case where the front sight blade was off, but other than that nothing but good things. There's also alot of different grip choices on the Heritage Arms website. You could probably find one used for 100 bucks.

    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.

    Dude some wal-mart stores carry guns and ammo. The one near I live does. You can usually grab Federal brand 550 count boxes for around $20.

    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.

    Sporting Goods counter in most Walmarts sells ammunition. Some are even starting to sell AR-15s.

    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

    Nope, they are different... slightly. The 5.56 has a thicker inside to the case.

    .223 and 5.56 are the same physical round, but 5.56 typically has higher chamber pressures.

    For all intensive purposes they are. You can load and shoot both rounds out of anything chambered in .223/5.56 NATO. Typically 5.56 runs at a slightly higher pressure, but it won't cause any major problems with AR type firearms. The only real problem you may run into is when loaded into a bolt action that has a high tolerance bore, in which the casing may get stuck. Accuracy really doesn't change when same bullet weights are used while being used in the appropriate rifling.

    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.
