I am most sympathetic that the draconian gun legislation in your state prevents ownership of fully automatic weapons.I have dual English / US citizenship actually I understand that most Brits think that only the forces should have firearms. All my English relatives think I am crazy for having them....
I collect firearms and don't have any 7.62 rifles and I wanted one.
I have a 5.56 LMT rifle and I like it, so I was looking at their 7.62 rifle which is basically the L129a1. So I was just curious if it was as well - made and reliable as the 5.56 one I have.
Mark I like your mini gun idea. Can't have full auto unless I move to another state. I was able to shoot a Minimi in Las Vegas.
I am sure that it will provide you, and your family, with hours of fun!Bushmills, Yes people can use guns to kill. My guns have killed no one and unless I am a victim of a home invasion will probably never be used in anger, unless the zombie apocalypse happens.
Do you have an opinion on the L129A1 rifle?
I have no doubt that shooting beer cans is easier than the two way street some of you have seen. I have several ex-servicemen friends and relatives. My brother in law was in Desert Storm. One of my drinking buddies was in the USMC in Iraq. I have the utmost respect for those in the forces.It is one thing using the weapon on a two way range and another to shoot beer cans at the "Hill Billy Gun (and low IQ Club) for the owners of very small penes".
I am not against gun ownership, I just find it alarming that the yanks don't restrict ownership to the sane and responsible.
PS I suspect collecting women and motorbikes would be more fun.
Why? I am just a normal person, who happens to collect guns. What is the 1960 cut off? Enfield vs FN? My father was in REME in Suez and had an Enfield so I bought him one for his birthday a few years back, he loves it. My mother on the other hand doesn'tAnyone that purchases a military type firearm issued before 1960 or so is...well lets just say he's not the sort of chap you want to join one's club.
Sounds like Terry trolling for intel.I live in America and have a question to soldiers serving with the L129A1 rifle. How is the reliability and how do you like the rifle? The reason I ask is that I am considering buying the civilian version in the US and would like to hear some feedback.
