I did a posting on the first page, and got attacked for not-understanding the NEED for scopes.
I cannot understand your need. Those are for shooting something a mile away. THAT is not self-defense. Maybe for hunting, but for a shotgun?!
Seriously, again: under these circumstances, I really, really prefer staying in europe, thank you very much.
Of course, 2nd Amendment, grounding fathers and whatnot.. Great words, always a huge point - or so you think. In fact, those are nothings.
You don't NEED military-grade weapons. You like them? Great. I like nuclear bombs, let me have some. Or tanks. Why don't you buy a real tank? The
cannon is a lot larger and louder..
I read your post and one thing becomes really clear really fast.
When it comes to guns, any type of gun, you are 100% clueless.
A mile away? clueless.
When I hunt deer, usually they get shot at distances from 100 to about 300 yards. I use a scoped rifle. AKA a hunting rifle. Animals need to be killed
clean, not injured or shot in a way that destroys meat.
But for a shotgun? again, clueless.
Nobody uses a scope on a shotgun, perhaps a red dot or other small optic, as a shotgun has a VERY limited projectile distance. A shotgun is for close
in work, like duck hunting, prairie chickens ect.
I have a Remington 870 18 inch barrel. I use as a DAP (Dangerous animal protection) gun, as I hunt in areas where there are BIG grizzly bears. I load
out with the 1 OZ slugs, if a grizz is bearing down on me I can shoot it in the face 6 times b4 it gets to me, usually by the second or third hit the
bear would be blind.
Oh and my 870 is rigged out with a full LEO drop tube from Mesa Tactical with a buffered stock that absorbs 70% of the recoil. I run a rail system
where I mount a holographic sight. The LEO allows me to adapt a sling where my DAP is always handy if I need it. The configuration height is the same
as a AR-15, which means I can draw up and bear down on a target very fast without having to think about it. Again, a very good idea in grizzly bear
My "military" style gun is not so I can look cool with my pals, it is so I can defend my life if needed in the back country.
But you would not know anything about that now would you?
Please stay in Europe where you belong. I don't mean that in a mean way, you just wouldn't survive here long being that clueless. Thanks
I cant see the list on the OP being legit.
pretty much all that would be left is,,,,,ummmm,,,,,,,errrrr,,,,,,,,paintball guns and ummmmm,,,bows and arrows.
You turning yours in?
Didn't think so,
PS:sorry for the rant but OMG, when someone from grand old Europe comes in and starts asking why this and why that but has only shot
his,,,,,ummmm,errrr,,,,,,well you get the picture.
