Thread: LV Stay at Home is AK

  1. #21
    I've showed this rifle before but here it is again.
    I bought the Pelican Case a few years ago and never really used it once.
    You can see it doesn't have any sign of use or wear.
    I also bought an electric knife to cut the foam foam out but haven't even opened the knife box lol.
    Some people think that is strong if you understand what someone means when they say that in a certain context.
    Personally I think when you buy something and don't use it for years you are just wasting resources.
    This rifle is probably too much for me and serves no purpose other than a trophy I suppose.
    Looking forward to learning about it more and actually using it.

    I was thinking about selling it but I would just get itchy later and buy another.
    I did this with my first M1A 6 years or so ago.
    That one was a basic model bought out new but this one is more advanced and used.
    Of course these days I don't think I would sell any of my guns or ammo.
    I am probably in the market to buy and keep buying currently.

It definitely adds a lot more length than yours though unfortunately.
    I hear you loud and clear.
    It certainly has been an ongoing debate for years now.
    Of course that pistol grip is a Mossberg 500 as well.
    Basic Stock or at least I never made any modifications to it.
    Personally it is one of the easier weapons to handle, very little recoil and has great versatility.
    20 Gauge so you have to listen to the 12 Gauge lovers call you Alice, Woman or a Little Girl.

    Honestly though, I have Super X Rifled Slug Hollow Points for it and they will take down a Deer easily at 70 yards.
    Bird Shot is fine for home defense no matter what anyone says but I prefer Slugs.
    Buckshot is always good too.
    Some people like to load the first two with bird, next two with buck and the rest with Slugs.
    I am sure you have heard the jokes.

    That pistol grip is nice though cause its so easy to handle, lighter and compact.
    You can rattle off 6 shots very quick but usually the racking will scare any living human.
    For home defense it would most likely be my first choice if I had to choose.
    Like I say though, it is effective at 50 yards easily with slugs.
    Very inexpensive ranging from 200 to 300 dollars and the barrel is 18.5 inches.

    I will be going out with my M1A very soon so I will upload some pictures.
    My Leupold Mark AR Scope needs to be adjusted as it was off way to the left last time I fired it.
    Not that I wanted a scope but when I bought this Super Match M1A Model the previous owner already had it mounted.

    The truth is I am very green with the M1A and am still trying to read up and learn how to get it sighted.
    Now that we have the lock down I have plenty of time and desire to get it right and learn.
    The main problem with this weapon is the weight... very heavy.
    Just lugging it around the countryside wears me out. (I'm old and out of shape)
    What am I going to do though as I always wanted an older style type of rifle like the M14/M1A.
    It has been sitting in my closet for the last few years begging for attention and it is about to get it as I just bought over 2000 rounds.
    Nice! Didn’t realize it was a 20 gauge. I like it even more now! I have four 12 gauge shotguns including the short barreled one but frankly for the reasons you mentioned, the defensive gun doesn’t need to be a 12 gauge. If it travels with me under back bench seat in the truck I’ll load it with slugs and or 00 buck. When at home the first shells out would be #4 bird shot followed by 4 buck. Since I rarely exercise that gun I’d probably be better off if it was a 20 gauge.

    Come on!
    That's Weak!!
    I still plug in my Nintendo once or twice a week to my TV.
    I run through Tyson's Punch Out, Tecmo Bowl, Excitebike, Tetris and a few other games.
    Nintendo Thumb or Gamers Thumb is real!!
    Now I have to go take a picture of my Nintendo and Cartridges.

    I used to plug in the Atari 2600 but that Nostalgia wore off long ago.
    Those games were so much better in the early 80s on my 13 inch black and white tv.
    NES has had replay value for me now over 30 years!!

    Don't make me dig out my Pong System and see if I can still hook it up!!
    Wish I still had ColecoVision just to show you all up but I got rid of it long ago. (sad face)

    I really liked the Mattel Intellivison. I would play the baseball with others back when it was new. I guess I could get another one or play an emulator if I really wanted to.

    The Intellivision controller was a love/ hate item. So much more advanced than the 2600 joystick. You would get the sheet to slide over it to show what buttons to use. Do you remember when they made the special big controller for the baseball game. State of the art for the time.

    I have a vague recollection of it Boz. However, I just used the standard ones connected to the console by the telephone-like cords. I remember the Intellivoice add-on that one of my friends who was pretty well off bought so that he could play B-17 Bomber.

    I remember what an excellent job they did with those games - especially Super Mario Bros., which wasn't too far off from its coin-up analogue.

    I prefer the RPG games. Last few years the randomizers and tournaments have taken over these old classics.

    I'm getting ready to head out to the bank.
    After that I am heading out to the wilderness again.
    I don't believe in this Stay at Home business.
    For everyone staying at home I sure do see a lot of people in the desert lately.
    When I drove home before sunset yesterday I seen another motorcycle cop giving someone a speeding ticket.
    Heartless bastards got to make that quota I suppose.
    Here are a few pictures of yesterday near the Wetlands Park in Las Vegas.
    I thought that place would be closed but the parking lot was packed.
    I drove around the other side and went into the desert where you see people riding motorcycles and 4 wheelers.
