Aside From The SKS.....Part II
« on: February 21, 2019, 05:22:19 PM »
I was overly clear in the original post, so I'll start over and clarify things into 3 categories.
Let's keep this to things you own, or have owned in the past.

What is your favorite rifle to shoot?

After that, what's your favorite pistol?

Category I: Fun gun. Makes you smile just to look at it. You giggle like a school girl when you pull the trigger.

Category II: Precision. This would cover hunting as well as marksmanship at some distance.

Category III: Survival. Not getting meat, your survival. Things that go bump in the night, home invasion, zombie apocalypse, etc. You can add a shotgun.

For me:
CI rifle: M1 Carbine. I really do find pleasure shooting this little rifle.
CI handgun: Vintage 1911 or Colt 1903 in 32ACP.

CII rifle: Winchester 30-30 or Remmy 700 in 308.
CII handgun: S&W pre-lock 357. I've owned 3 or 4 and they've all shot extremely well for me. A wide range of ammo available makes this a good choice for me.

CIII rifle: AR platform or AKM variant. Ammo is commonly available and will do the trick.
CIII handgun: CZ75B or G17. Hi capacity magazines and very easy to find ammo.
CIII shotgun: Remmy or Mossberg pump 12 gauge. Like a hammer, kinda hard to screw it up.

Oooo fun!

CI Rifle: Any SKS lol
CI Pistol: Tokarevs!

CII Rifle & Pistol: N/A, never shot for precision nor bought a precision rifle or handgun, though I do shoot ridiculously well with my Ruger Blackhawk in .357 mag, if that counts.

CIII Rifle: SKS! What better gun for zombies? Poke em with the bayo!
CIII Pistol: Walther PPQ .45
CIII Shotgun: Vepr 12

Wait, was I not allowed to answer SKS since the title says “aside from?”

If so, then replace with Chinese Polytech spiker. Lol

You certainly can use the SKS. I figured that since this is an SKS specific forum, we would all use an it in some capacity.

Nice! I really love the SKS. It's a great tool for many uses I think.

Worm,
I saw the post about the rifle in your avatar. That stamp just draws my eyes every single post you make.
It's almost mesmerizing.

Really, it's just amazing.

Haha I keep looking at that pic too. It's struck so nicely & the patina compliments it more so. Really happy I bought that gun. Sorry if it's distracting! Lol :)

Don't be. It's like saying you're sorry that your gorgeous girlfriend always wears a bikini when I visit.

I'm gonna look!
