This year my 12 Y/O Grandson used it to get his Elk, at over three hundred yards he hit one lung and the heart exactly what he aimed for. It fell like you had dropped a paper weight. That is plenty good enough. Most battles are fought at much closer range than hunting distances.
It legal in Wis, Texas just for a couple
“What would you recommend in it’s stead?”
Depends on the situation,papertyger.
My father used a B-17 bomber. My great-great-great-great uncle used 12-pound cannon against the British at Sullivan Island in Charleston Harbor. Sometimes one finds that an M1917 .30 caliber works well to kill Imperialist Jananese.
Assess the situation, determine what you need and go get it wherever it is.
Hope that helps.
From what I read about the Sandy Hook shootings they were done with handguns. The AR-15 rifle was found in the shooters car.
So the .223 wasn’t used in the shootings.
Sometimes I read the exact opposite version of that scenario. Who knows why it is so hard to get the definitive information or why they are obscuring it.
While I'll freely admit I don't own an AR (not of fan of DI), I have shot them. The ergonomics, customizability, and usability of the platform are nothing short of spectacular!
I can think of nothing I'd rather carry into an unspecified engagement (provided it was one of the newer gas piston variants).
It is just a matter of time until you snap after getting subliminal messages from the NRA.........
What? You don't think that's an assault weapon? Just wait till I take the safety off (as you can see, it's on) pull the hair trigger and spray some of this yellow stuff in your eyes.
I'm certain you will feel you've been assaulted.
Please note this is a semi-automatic assault weapon, the most scary, lethal and dangerous kind.
I’ve read two articles on this. Sorry, no link. Both cited the medical examiner as the source. One said all the kids were shot with the Bushmaster. The other said all the kids were shot with the Bushmaster and Lanza used a pistol on himself.
I understand that the Army decided that a wounded enemy soldier placed more strain on the enemy’s resources than a dead one — hence the smaller caliber. Wounding a deer is frowned upon by the state hunting officials (and by most hunters).
That’s right — in fact, it is the pistol grip and, to some extent, the suppressor which give the AR’s that super-powerful effect that scares liberals. ;>)
It is very wasteful and less accurate to fire full-automatic, but it is useful for providing suppression (or ‘covering’) fire to support an assault.
You can use them for deer in Texas.
I could be wrong. I’m only human. But a few of the reports I read said that the Bushmaster was found in the trunk of his car. I’ve also seen video of a cop pulling a rifle out of his car. It could be a different rifle of course.
I had a good link to an article that laid out the series of events and had links to the videos and audio reports given by the cops and reporters throughout the day. It was posted on FR someplace. That is where I found it actually. But I can’t find it among my yahoo messages so I’ll have to have my friend send it back to me. It could just be bunk but it’s got some very interesting items to think over.
I guess I’m a skeptic when it comes to getting a straight answer out of any agency while this president is in office. He’s tried too many things to get favor behind him and his party to get gun control through. Also to win the election.
I say again, with a 1:8 barrel, the 223 can shoot 80-grain bullets and that makes it a totally different animal for the purpose of hunting.I still wouldn’t want to try to kill a moose or an elk with it but anything short of that it should kill pretty easily. Something like that would also be ideal for hog hunting where you’re trying to kill enough hogs to actually be doing a farmer some sort of service and you’d be using a semiauto rifle with a 20-round magazine.
I had no idea one could do that. It would be totally cool to do cheap target practice with the 22LR and then load with .223 with no loss of applicable muscle memory. How much does the optional hardware cost? What about magazines? What is involved in making the switch?
Why do these liberals want the public disarmed?What is the real agenda here?
