Lykoz Best gun ever made:
The musket - no question.

Had a safety feature. When people got angry it has an advanced mechanism that did not allow you to spray and shoot without thinking things through

Anyone opinion on a M&P15 VS the Sig M400

I'm torn between the 1/7th twist vs the 1:8th
I'm using a polyagonal 1:8 twist on mine (18") and it's a tack driver with 75 grain Match ammo. I one holed 5 rounds testing, it also likes 77 grain open-tip match, 1/2 to 3/4 MOA at 100 yards.

The 1:7 the military is using nowadays is due in part to the tracer rounds which are longer(less dense makeup), and longer rounds require more spin to stabilize. My opinion is that for the most versatility the 1:8 is the way to go, you can drop down the grains into the 50s with the 1:8 and still have some decent results, the 1:7 might cause some problems(poorly jacketed bullets will spin to destruction).

The M&P is a fine rifle, the Sig is a fine rifle. I could not decide on a rifle so I built my own. I came REALLY close to dropping the coin on a Colt CRX, but it wasn't exactly what I was after.

I added up my costs the other night and it was just a hair over $2100, with optics. That's a custom barrel, Giessele trigger and top-shelf furniture and running parts. It'll run circles around most off the shelf rifles and it is configured exactly the way I want. 1400 sans the glass, which was not really a purchase, I scavenged it off another rig of mine for testing purposes. I'm not keeping a 36 power scope on a rifle that I'm not planning on going over 300 yards with. It's going to get an EoTech or ACOG, have not decided yet.

BARBIElovesSAILOR My dad recently told me he found a .22 marlin papoose rifle, for a good price. If I wanted it?

This was the firearm that was my first, as a child. My childhood gun, very sentimental for me. Unfortunately, at 23 yrs old going through a divorce, I was broke and sold it. And kicked myself in the butt everyday for it. Still do. It's not a super expensive or rare gun but it meant a lot to me. I remember being 6 yrs old in Louisiana (my favorite place in the world) with my dad buying it in 1991. What's more, it was the same time he bought his colt pocket lite, we bought both firearms together. The colt which I now have, would be cool to reunite the two firearms. I'm getting all sentimental about a hunk of metal.*wipes tears away* Omgod. Lol I'm such a big baby. Anyway, I'm thinking of saving up some money and buying a .22 papoose! Even though I am kind of past shooting a .22 but it Might be more for collection or perhaps passing down to my children. Although I wouldn't give it to them at the same age my dad gave me mine lol :-/
Probably wait until they are adults dunno. Think I am going to do it?
