Like my pistol post, what's your favorite rifle? When rambling around, I like my collapsible stock Colt AR-15. Light, short, but enough barrel length with the stock extended to be ana accurate platform. .223 ball is cheap enough so your wallet doesen't scream every time you blow off 2 0r 3 magazines. My second would be a Yugoslavian SKS. A bit heavy but manageable. You can half-way open the bayonet, jam it in the ground and use it for a monopod! :p

In my neck of the woods, we have to be careful about scaring the sheeple so the BA or a 22 works. FN 7x57 Mauser hunting rifle or the Ruger 10-22.

Tanker Garand in .308. Mine is rock reliable. Easy to carry 80 rounds in clips. I use a M1 Carbine double pouch on my belt, and the rest in a bandelio. Usually I just carry 4 clips while I'm out and about. That and my Speed Six.

Lately I've been keeping it simple.

I have a CAR-15 (and .22 unit) that I use for many things, but for hunting bigger game I often use a .308 Mauser. I also have a couple of 10/22's that also work well for other family members.

rifles are for WAR,or dead serious foraging. I see no reason to bother with lugging one around if things are not that serious. Apistol suffices for just jacking around in the woods, and its being ccw'd can be of real value at times. U are just another hiker, until somebody tries something stupid.

The concept of fun and enjoyment is totally lost on Melvin.

So, by declaring that rifles are ONLY for 'war' and/or SHTF, a person can conveniently ignore them and then try to shift the focus only to something he might actually know how to use, a pistol. :)

My favourite rifle in my toy box at this time has to be my M1A. If the balloon ever went up, I would prefer the FN FAL though.

This post was not directed toward convicted felons. You CAN'T just strap on a pistol or grab a rifle and hike around in the woods for fun, now can you?

Yeah he can.

Until Stillwater, who's physically tailing his ass and has actually already done a recon on him, snaps a photo and sends it to his PO.

And the lesson there boys and girls is don't make enemies with a determined man who needs a new hobby. :)

Read an article of this one really good looking lady in Colorado who was on parole for a relatively minor drug offence. Her new boyfriend, a professional photographer, took some photos of her nude posing with some of his (unloaded) guns. Her PO saw the pics and threw her back in prison.

Garand, there's no way for you to get a legal FAL?

You're career military, retired, licensed to work with explosives for the government, and you can't have a semi-only FAL?

Unfortunately I sold my TRW M14 and my Australian FN L1A1 about 11 years ago. With the change in our firearms laws which were passed in 30 days and made retroactive in 1995, if you didn't already own one you weren't grandfathered into that class of "converted full autos". The only firearms that I can't buy are full autos or converted full autos, but there are a wide variety of toys that I can just walk into a store throw down my plastic and go home with :) :) :)

Would an American made, semi-auto only FAL receiver work under the laws?

Well GK's in the clear as I don't think ANYONE would want him to pose nude with anything. :sidestep: :laugh:
