Please understand, I do enjoy wasting a mag or two of ammo in full auto .30 battle rifles, but owning one is far from the top of my wish list. As you know, I'm very fortunate to live where I do and be a part of a large and active NFA community and have shot a number of interesting weapons.SubGunFan said:VegasSMG, I agree with your statements. Mainly not going to a 7.62x51 shoulder fired gun. And yes, the belt-feds are GREAT.
The gun was beating him silly. I'll bet his MOS doesn't involve firearms but he wanted a video to send back home. I love the classic looks and lines of the M14/M1A. The Mk14 Mod.0 is plain FUGLY to my eye even though it may be a great platform for it's intended mission. You'll never see that kind of "crap" on my M1A. I can't even get excited about OEM fiberglass stocks. Wood and steel keeps it real.SubGunFan said:As for the soldier shooting prone..... I agree prone is the most accurate method, I was just pointing out that soldier did not "prepare well" for his shooting. Plus, I didn't like that configuration of the M14. Stick with the basics (most of the time)..... IMHO..
Yeah, but it looks like he was having a good time. :lol4: I shoot at measured 400 yard steel plates at our club twice a month. One of those weekends is ViMSAR and I use either with my M1A or M1. It's tough enough in semi auto with iron sights and the rifle benched and bagged at that distance so I'm guessing they fudged a just tad on their distance.SubGunFan said:As for the video......... Why would anyone think they could do well trying to hit a helmet at 450yds STANDING on full-auto...? Yes, he hit the helmet, but he fired MANY rounds to get the job done....... .
So why don't you come out with Chad in October? I've got .30 caliber battle rifles for each of us.SubGunFan said:VegasSMG..... You still Da Man.
