Recently GunKid has begun lecturing us on the best ways to hunt African game and explaining why African hunters use the wrong equipment.

Un order to help us evaluate his advice it would be very helpful if he outlined his African experience. For example:

What African countries has he visited and when did he visit them?

What animals did he hunt?

What rifles did he use?

I am sure he would not be telling people what rifles to bet their lives on without some experience.

He has the same experience in Africa that he has in military firefights and as he has in civilian gunfights and has he has in wilderness survival has he as in just about anything, including his SHTF dreams. That is, ZERO!

I think GoonKid's african experiences were all in the prison shower room, where he got some first hand "big bore" experience, maybe even a few "double barrels", and might be why he hates big bores so much.

unlike YOU, dumbass, I dont think in terms of "concretes", I think the way a human being SHOULD think, in terms of PRINCIPLES. A gas op auto offers 1/4 less felt recoil than manually operated actions, and 4x the repeat hit speeds of a bolt actiona, and a 308 gas op, with BOSS compensator, offers 2x the repeat hit speeds of a .577 double rifle, too. Only brain hits, or fluke hits to shoulder or spine stop charges. The brain is a small, moving mark, it only makes sense to have 2-4x as many tries at such a mark, in the same period of time. The only reason MOST African hunters DON'T use the 308 auto is that most African countries have LAWS against auto rifles,Dumbass.

Gunkid says: "The only reason MOST African hunters DON'T use the 308 auto is that most African countries have LAWS against auto rifles,Dumbass."

The reason most African countries have laws against auto rifles for hunting is because the bullets are way too light to reliably kill large dangerous animals. If you could come up with a 600 Nitro Express semi auto they would probably allow it but you would have to have a platoon of "boys" to help you pick it up and aim it.

I sure hope stup*kid would hunt Cape Buffalo with his CAR. It would be the last time we hear of him.

The .308, even with solids and non-fragmentory FMJ, will not reliably penetrate, from the front, a Cape Buff, a Black Rhino, or an elephant, no matter how much you spray 'n' pray. And before you launch off on how one shouldn't shoot from such a position, keep in mind that these animals often dictate the conditions under which you shoot, not you. Also, head and shoulder hits are not flukes, they are specifically aimed for to break down a charge, usually a shoulder hit, followed by a head hit. And if the hunter chokes, the PH will take the shot. THAT'S why dangerous game hunts HAVE to be guided.

I many places in Africa even a .30-06 is not allowed for big game hunting. Often, the lightest caliber allowed is the .375H&H.

AFAIK, ALL dangerous game must be hunted with a .375 H&H or bigger, legally. The lighter game doesn't have such a restriction.

Nice footwork, Melvin. Now answer these few simple questions:

Recently GunKid has begun lecturing us on the best ways to hunt African game and explaining why African hunters use the wrong equipment.

In order to help us evaluate his advice it would be very helpful if he outlined his African experience. For example:

What African countries has you visited and when did you visit them?

What animals did you hunt?

What rifles did you euse?

I am sure You would not be telling people what rifles to bet their lives on without some experience would you?

I think gunkids African experience is limited to Afro-Americans that he "met" in prison.
