ive shot many guns listed by the obamanites as "bad"....but never really wanted one.....until now.

after many of my fellow gun owners let me down by voting for obama or should i say not voting for mccain....80 million gun owners in this country and mccain got 37 million votes...:upeyes:

well i went and bought an AK-47 (norinco) today...wanted a short barrel version or a short ar15 but there werent any more...

a month ago you could get a used one in very good shape for $350-$400. today i got the last one my local shop had for $550.00, and its a beater.

well, at least i didnt wait until after the inaguration when they will be higher priced and harder to get before they are banned again.

Pawn City is where i got my Norinco.

for a pawn shop they have a descent selection of new and used handguns and quite a few long guns (for this area), but as of yesterday the only long guns they have left are of the hunting variety. i got the next to the last "assault" weapon they had.

i ask for and deal with Jay when i go there...have bought plenty from them so he knows im not coming in to fondle stuff and walk away....they work with me on the price because im a regular cash carrying customer.

Oh Yeah! Pawn city had one AK 47 with a longer barrel. $400ish, looks to be in Good condition. They also have a nice selection of handguns. Better grab them or the prices go sky high!

Cowboy! Did you see the S&W 38 spl revolver and poker set. In its own collectors case.. Wow! That looks like a deal and a half. =-O

i dont, never have, nor forsee the ability to ever buy a gun because of its special edition like the poker set.....

all my guns are shooters, i get no pleasure out of looking at a gun and if i shoot it ruin its "value".

i like shooting, thats what guns are for. BTW that cheap steel cased "non laquered" coated wolf ammo is o.k. for plinking, but i had 1-2 jams with it out of every 30 round mag i tried with my AK. does the same thing with my SKS.

i guess i will pick the green laquer coated ammo from now on and pay the extra dollar per box.

unless P.C. has gotten another AK in all they had a few days ago was a short bbl AK with blond wood and a scope on it of all things.

Yup! I would Agree. I just thought since you like S&W wheelies I would let you know about it. Looks cool... But I wouldnt want it either. Unless, hang it on the wall and In Case of Emergency Break Glass. lol!

Yup! I was in there Thursday, They have a longer barrel Ak in now. Its barrel is way longer than my Ak 47 anyways.

Hey! The guy at City Pawn (Opelika) told me that he could get me just about anything that I wanted from AIM surplus. Small fee but still beats the competition.

They are excellent people to do business with. Also, try the big gun show this week at the Montgomery Civic Center. At least, there will be plenty of eye candy there!

Cool! Man! Dont forget the pics and field report.


ps
I have a buddy at work. He recommended me a Mossberg Half Pint 22lr. We took it out behind the plant into the woods and fired a couple rounds. This is a decent little rifle. It has a Magazine blank for single shot and a 10 rd mag for when the youngsters get older and more experienced. Mossberg has a Winner here.

pss
Instead of going out and buying a new rifle. I did this. I simply ordered a Butler Creek Youth stock to replace my Ruger 10 22 stock. I guess that I will just load 1rd at a time for the youngsters.
