Not an attack. If you had run your rifle before you would have understood what it meant. It means train with it. Use it outside the realm of a hunting trip or a range trip..The video was to show you how to prone with a 30 round mag. Guess you missed that part. If you think a 300 yard shot with a Klash is something find travis haleys video doing it out to 700 yards.
I will leave it with this. You have been using your rifle since you were 15, hunting and having a good time. Some of us run our rifles. Putting more than 2000 rounds down range in a single class. That is the difference. Have a good day Steve....
I once got into a huge fight with a pound of bacon...the bacon lost.
Up in Canada, if I may redirect, we have the CZ-858 available in both restricted, and non-restricted versions for civilians.. I'm ex-military, and, giving away my age, was one of the first platoons in ROTC to qualify with the "new" C-7 rifle, having replaced the old FN.
I don't want to start any flaming, for I believe any AR-based platform .223 has its' place, and under ideal, dry & clean circumstances, is an extremely accurate weapon. I know both of our armed forces use variants and derivatives. I'm sorry, I think any M-16, M-4, AR, whatever, they're all the same with pretty much the same breech mechanism, are all pieces of unreliable crap when the situation is less than ideal. The Canadian C-7 rifles wouldn't even make a decent club because of all the plastic. I would trust them more in an urban setting, on a clear sunny day than I would ever carry something like this in a filthy wet jungle ever again.
I'm not too sure about the laws governing AK-47 ownership up here. I think the rifle may even be prohibited, but don't quote me. I don't know. Whatever the case, the CZ is a fairly accurate AK variant. I believe it is better. Components are all milled, and there's even a larger ejection aperture for spent casings. This thing can be beat on in much the same manner as an AK. I was originally going to buy an SKS, but found the CZ instead. Now, pricing is certainly different. An old SKS can run you as low as $150-$200 here, whereas the CZ-858 will cost you around $600. The furniture that comes with it is adequate. I didn't like it, and found the rifle felt small in my hands, so I purchased some upgrades from Zahal, and now couldn't be happier. It fires any ammo I put into it, including the ghetto milsurp garbage. It eats it up with narry a jam. In fact, with the addition of a 2x42 red dot scope on the thing, I was shocked to see I could shoot it accurately out to 250 yards (the farthest I've tried yet). I am fully aware of the differences of the AR, but I was quite satisfied with these results. In an urban setting, I don't think my target would be much further away, house-to-house, and in a questionable environment I certainly don't plan on walking out in the open where someone can peg me from 500 yards away.
Just my two cents, anyways. Firearms are just like motor oil. Everyone has their favorite brand and reasons why theirs is the best. I just thought I'd add in about the CZ, because I feel it has a place in with the SKS family.
The poor SKS. The old girl just can't catch a break. It is what it is, and does what it does.
EDIT to add: Its now $1399.00 http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=324293613
