I don't think the OP know's exactly what he is talking about…or he broke quite a few laws. Not trying to be a dick but lemme point out that a.) it wasn't a silencer but more likely a shroud which is a glorified barrel extension that lacks rifling so really other than keeping the barrel a little cooler and hiding the flash a bit it does nothing. b.) it sure wasn't legally full auto and sold to a 17yo kid unless it was black-market. c.) There is no Uzi that does both 9mm and .45acp without changing some parts ie.. barrel. An Uzi is not a hunting gun it really only fits a specific roll…concealment for offensive/defensive purposes. Still a hell of a cool gun and as a testament to it's design they are still sought after today.

ETA: owning anything other than a rifle or shotgun is illegal under the age of 21.

Americans and terrorists are so similar.


ATS really needs a demerit system for posts like this.

You should try killing a boar with a .22. Ill visit you in the hospital. LOL

Hogs have a thick, protective armor on their heads. A .22 will just bounce off, typically. I have seen a .308 ricochet off a hogs head before. If you aren't a noob and can aim straight, the sweet spot is behind the ear. Or right in the ear. Within 200yds its a pretty easy shot with a scope.

I don't live in bear country, but i can imagine a .22 would do a fine job of pissing them off.

Badgers....they do live around here. Nasty critters. I guess you could kill one with a .22 if you shot it about a dozen times.

If i am out in "the bush", i absolutely carry a sidearm. My favorite is my "Judge". I also like my .40 S&W. Both can give a 1 shot kill to any of the local deadly wildlife (cougars, bobcats, coyotes, hogs, etc, etc).



This is for Rodinus too.

Ive seen and done it myself unfortunately... sometimes a regular ol pig or cow takes more than one shot from a 22 when youre killing them to butcher. Thats at point blank range. We didnt stun them because it was a home farm and we treated them good before slaughter. They were calm to the end. Ive seen guys use the stunner and have to shoot them several times in the head with a 22 as well. My dad never let me go boar hunting... because they were so hard to kill and required more heavy firepower than I could deal with at the time. I was pretty young.
These days guys use some radical stuff to boar hunt we didnt have access to back then!

Now.. being a former rn who worked in an er for years... Ive seen people WALK in to the ER ( I worked in an inner city ER.. level 1 trauma center) anyway.. WALK in with several 9mm or several 22 in their body.. and pissed off.

Those of us who have been in the real world understand the need and what really happens... and the truth.
The real world is a pretty different place than some others live in IMO.

Badgers are about 130lb animals from my experience. With claws that can gut you relatively easy, and a disposition that makes them eligible for "Mother in law of the year" award. A .22 will piece their hide, usually. Presuming they choose "flight" over "fight", it could end well. But if they choose "fight"....you'll have your hands full.

.270....great round. I stick with a 30-30 because of the brush we have. I find the heavier load with the rounded tip does better. Or, i like to think it does.

HAH! I told about this on here in chat.. mean ass animals. My most recent encounter was in my back yard. My dog was fighting a whistle pig. Actually playing more than wanting kill and my dog ( staffy) was getting the wrong end of the stick so I went out there with only a dishtowel in my hand to break up the merriment. I told Blue ( my staffy) to back off.. he did and I was left with this HUUUGE groundhog looking at me.. pissed off and trapped in by a garden fence. Now IM telling you on my life.. this thing weighed about 35 lbs or so. It GROWLED at me and its hair was standing on end like a maniacal hairbrush. I talked to it.. like a calm voice and my dishtowel would make any difference and got within at least 10 inches from this thing, slowly lifted the fence up from the bottom and it ran off.

I didnt even know they could growl.


My point : In the real world, you choose when you need a firearm and when a dishtowel will do.

It wasnt a true silencer. Just a threaded extended barrel you could remove. To look like a silencer I guess. It was a nice one.

Im quite aware of this. And yes I pointed out it wasnt a true silencer.

There is alot of trading and swapping here. Ive seen a game warden shooting a ma duece. It was posted to facebook lol
Our sheriff is a cool guy and your right it would blow a squirl in half so basically it was only good for the back yard range. Same for the sks and my gpaw has some kind of big as* g3 type gun. Ears ring for two days shooting that thing. And me being 17 at the time means nothing. Been shootin since I was 5 (no joke). Had my first .380 pistol when I was 16. Uzi was not the best but the most memorable.

Yes and a 30 30 has hardly any recoil for the heavy round. Love a 30 30 lever action.

After reading yalls posts I did a little research. It couldn't of been a real Israeli uzi because it didnt look like this.www.google.com...://www.thespecialistsltd.com/files/Replica_Uzi.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.thespecialistsltd.com/replica-imi -uzi&h=2151&w=3599&tbnid=0zGBleOic3TDcM:&zoom=1&q=uzi&docid=xwJHIppZWsFBuM&hl=en&ei=pP6ZU9jmLarmsASWnIGQDw&tbm=isch&client=ms-android-samsung&ved=0CCI QMygAMAA

Sorry I have trouble posting pics lol. Anyway I do know it said military armament and it was more bulky than the uzi pictured. Im sure someone can help me find it. It had the round thing on top to cock the gun and the clip was long as the gun itself. Had the strap on the left side to hold onto while shooting. No folding stock or anything.

Sounds like possibly a micro or mini. The regular uzi has a fold out stock...I still have no cluse how one would shoot 9mm and .45acp with it without a barrel swap at the least. You must hail from one of the more rural parts of the US because both owning a pistol or own an automatic fire arm without a class 3 dealers license...an uzi without the stock is considered a pistol with stock its an smg I think I could be wrong and it could also be an sbr which needs a tax stamp. I imagine going out plinking with one when ammo was as cheap as it was when I was 17 would have been awesome.

It may not of shot both types. Couldve swore it said it did but I know I shot 9mm through it. And yes your right. Lucedale Mississippi. Population not even 3000. But mobile al. is only a few miles away. Love our small town.

Your right about ammo. Even here its skyrocketing still and we have a 5 box limit on 22 lr. But we can buy as much .223 as we want.. whats the deal with that I wonder?

And people keep bringing up fully automatic guns like they are surprised. Its not hard to make a semi into a full auto. Seen it done plenty times. Just last week my buddy just dropped something in the receiver of his ar and it was full auto. But ive seen many already full auto. My papi has a g3 looking gun from brazil full auto. It weighs a ton though. I dont know what it shoots but it literally tears trees in half. Also your ears will ring for days after. Mine really did for like two days.

I suppose.. maybe if your drinking while hunting. Which I dont recommend. But a gun is one of those prized possessions. Hard to lose a gun. However I had an experience losing my best knife like you. It was a sad day. Double x case. I cant describe how beautiful the knife was. Lost a half-way finished bomb once. Co2 cartridge bomb.
