    Nice guns, haters will hate....lovers will love, its a mixed up world where guns give the haters their freedom, let them hate, they are hypocrites saying guns are bad and living in freedom.

    This photo actually captures both my 7.62mm M-14, and my 1966 Caravelle Diver (which still runs great!).

    Yes - Great pic! You look young there - how old were you and where was that taken?

    This thread is getting dangerously near to the old "your daily carry" threads on Time Zone US.

    They always had a gun and a watch and sometimes some cigars and a Zippo laid out on the stars and stripes.
    Cheers,

    The photo was taken a mile or two below the DMZ in Vietnam about March of 1967...I was still 19!

    19 - so young!! I guess you have to grow up quick though in places like that.

    Here we are at last, my new Milspec AR nearly ready for the comps, hopefully resuming in May-ish plus Explorer2 on a rubber B



    My Izhmash AKM 7.62x39 UK legal (as are all my guns)



    Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22, the AR, Benelli M2, Alfa .357 Nitro Muzzle loader which is the nearest thing to a REAL handgun you can get in our nanny-state and my little airsoft Glock 26 in semi/full-auto I keep for garden practice with the Explorer and Tudor GMT also on a Rubber B



    Closer view of the Alfa

    If you mean a MLR that uses modern nitro powder, shotgun primers and bullets rather than balls (like mine) there are a few for sale on Guntrader atm. A gunshop will send a gun to a Registered Firearms Dealer near you to be collected/paperwork done so distance not a problem.

    Nice, I have the nitro Armscor .38, not as nicely made as the Alfa but slightly smaller.

    Like the AR, I'm thinking of getting the Hammerli version.

    I got that at a very good price. Hardly heard of in UK Double Star are a popular budget AR build in US. A new Hammerli would be similar cost without optics. However I would be careful as some users have not had good results with them.
    Although the Smith & Wesson is often derided for having too much polymer construction many world class shooters use them in mini-rifle comps as they are just so reliable and not ammo fussy. Also many milspec AR parts will fit them.



    To compare

    Thanks Iíll bear that in mind while looking at them. Iím going to do a one for one variation with a Magtech semi which doesnít see much use. Friend who is a RFD will take the Magtech and put it in the next auction he goes to.
