I'm not sure if this is allowed, but i was looking for an assault rifle of some kind, SKS, AK, whatever. Are these sold anywhere in the U.S.? are any of them legal? How much do they cost? are they worth it? and do you know where i could get one?

thanks

Also, if you join this forum:

www.gunsnet.net...

There is a for sale section in the back with trader ratings for each member so you know who to deal with without getting ripped off. All dealings must go through your local dealer unless you find someone close locally that is willing to do a face to face. I have a Curio&Relics firearms license so I can buy SKS's through the mail (as most SKS's are considered Curio & Relics ( All I have now SKS wise is the Yugo with the grenade launcher) still full of cosmoline...had it for more than a year now...to lazy to clean it.

By the way, don't you have any gunstores near you? Most dealers have a used gun section, or will assist you in finding what you want. Don't forget Pawn shops either...I see alot of good deals there sometimes too.

Oh crap! You got 4 years to go before you can legally buy a long gun (18) and 6 years before you can legally buy a handgun (21)...unless your parents will buy you one and take the responsibility. Start saving now...get quality firearms...not cheap junk like "Jennings" and "Hi-Points"

Good luck kiddo!

i'm not overly fond of miltary weaponry but the AK-47 just screams "own me"...its the banana clip.

nice pic man, yeah i am saving now, i am really fascinated with Assault Rifles, i don't know what ill use it for, i would just feel better having one.

I think my dad has an Sk-47, but he won't show it to me lol.

We go shooting some with just handguns, next time we are taking our rifles though, should be fun.

i'm going to suggest you do a lot of research in firearms before even going out and trying to buy one (at this point you cant do this legally and doing it illegally is a bad idea). talk to knowledgable people about firearms.

get a BB gun air rifle or pellet gun first. learning to respect one of those properly helps ensure you respect an actual firearm.

feel better having an assault rifle? well unless you're going to use it in single shot mode it'll be worthless. those who are not trained properly will generally wind up emptying a clip before they know it and wont hit their target. full auto is rather useless to the amateur.

its also a long weapon. in close quarters combat such as in a house you'd want something more practical, like a pistol. glocks are nice...

also think about the kind of firearm and ammunation you're using...if an assault rifle goes off in your house you'll make your walls into swiss cheese where as with a smaller firearm and the right caliber there wont be so many holes, the bullets wont go through so many walls and if you hit your target they wont go through him but bounce around in them killing them. you want a man stopper, not a man shredder.

I respect firearms, i am very into paintball, and i you point a paintball gun the wrong way you can lose and eye. Also, they require lots of cleaning.

and like i said before i shoot handguns. .45, .44 magnum, .38 special i think it was... or something around there..


how often do guns need to be cleaned?

Truthfully after any decent set of shooting a gun should be cleaned, its just a good habit to form. Even if you dont fire it its wise to put some gun oil in the action and work it a bit to get it spread around, it helps keep any moisture from causing rust, which happened to a rifle of mine last year. Every hunting season I clean my rifle both before the season opens and after, mainly due to the various dirt and dust it gets exposed to while climbing around the woods.

Ive got a Beretta (40 s&w) mini cougar, Savage 30-06 and 12 gauge pump shotgun. I clean them every time theyre fired. Its a pain but its worth doing if you want operational firearms.

EDIT: forgot my favorite handgun.

Smith&Wesson - 22A - Bull - Wood Target w/ thumbrest except I have the longer barrel and a Red dot scope mounted.

I love assault rifles. At least I loved my M-16 before it was time to turn it in and get back to the "real world". Everything about it was just right- I've never been that accurate with other weapons.
Burst and auto are fairly useless to the average joe, unless you plan on a drive-by shooting. What are you going to do with it really? Have you got several friends with it too so you can pin the target down and frag him?

The other problem you face is that by the time you're 18, you'll be lucky if you can buy an internal combustion engine in California, let alone an assault rifle anywhere. What state are you from anyway, because that's a big factor.

Then theres the matter of what you want your weapon for. If you've some vision that you may one day need to go out and kill somebody, I suggest taking karate lessons and being a sport about it. If you live in a dangerous place and want a weapon at home, a shotgun with slugs will give you close range accuracy and stopping power, or if you wanted a hand gun I suggest a revolver because it won't jam no matter how long you leave it loaded. (I don't subscribe to the idea that a weapon should be kept unloaded, disasembled and encased in cement inside a time-locked safe, but especially if you keep it loaded or near ammo, you do need a good way of locking it up.)
If you just want to shoot for sport, then should see if your parents would agree to getting you something to practice with. A .22 isn't very expensive, and it probably wont be very scary to your parents. Then when you turn 18 and you have been practicing your marksmanship and safe handling for a quite a while already, you'll be ready to go get whatever pellet gun the government hasn't banned by that time.

Oh yes I can just see someone like Fox getting this post where the people on ATS were telling some dumb 14 year old kid about where to buy assault weapons and how to take care of them. Can you say setup just like sending some kid into a store to buy cigs. Think about what you do people.

Ummm, the kid merely asked a question and it was answered. If he really had his mindset to it, he could of just as well did a google search and found all that and more. Didn't even know he was a kid til after.

There is nothing wrong with having a sensible discussion with the young man about firearms. If more people did this more and showed them a good mindset, we wouldn't have all the little freaks out there doing stupid things.

Instead we get handwringing and kneejerk reactions...sad really.
