I got my Vz.24 for Christmas when I was like 12 or 13, and I got my Webley as a combination birthday and Christmas (my birthday is in November) when I was 15 or 16.

To be honest though, I prefer getting clothes :\

Heh, well if you get any that you don't like, feel free to send em this way. Not many people in cali "get it" sadly. Someone asked me why would I be interested in shooting since all guns are "basically the same." Yeah. That's California for you.

My bb gun has officially thrown in the towel. The gas seal broke and now all the co2 leaks out whenever I pull the trigger. The one downside of these guns is that, unlike real firearms, you can't strip them and fix things.. Which was very disappointing. I mean, it is plastic, and does feel like a toy and times, but it would have been nice if it allowed you to do some repair work. The only option was to pay $25 for a new magazine and this gun has felt like it's been a little too heavy on my wallet. Atleast a pellet rifle is more like a firearm in that you don't need to buy any extra propellant. The only ammo you need is the pellets. The gun does the rest fortunately.

Im oh so close to getting the job, but they said they are still looking through the applications. Any day now let's hope. Maybe in a few weeks I will have something to show off here. :)

Just get a job and save up some cash. But you being in California you will be very limited to what you can own.

Yeah, thats what I hear. I used to live in texas though. Was born in houston in the year 1989. Oddly all I remember is armadillos. But I think I would love it from what I can see. The hot ladies, the awesome food, etc. Texans know how to have fun. :)

ninails99, I like the cut of your jib.

Once I get a pistol collection going, the only 9mm I even realistically consider is the Browning Hi Power. That pistol is indubitably the summit of automatic pistol technology. The 1911 was a marvelous achievement and a solid design, but somehow, John Browning found a way to make it better in the Hi Power.

Also, mad props for the Vz.58. Czechs make great firearms, and even though it's ugly, that gun is a fantastic piece of machinery.

Naw that is only part of the toys in the toybox.

Gunbroker.com has deals all the time if you are patient and know what to look for. Also Arsenal Inc. makes several AKs in .223:

http://www.arsenalinc.com/usa/home.php?cat=25

To me, the AK in .223 is the best of both worlds: AK reliability and the accuracy of the .223 caliber. Most of the AKs renown lack of accuracy is because of the (realitive) poor qualilty of the 7.62x39 ammunition. One member on AR15.com once pulled a bunch of bullets of wolf ammo and found slight variations in bullet weight, bullet size, and powder weight. It was all over the board. It's no wonder the 7.62x39 AK is a 4 MOA gun.

However, I do like my Krinkov slightly better . . . love that little 5.45x39 gun. My gunsmith has one that is FA and it is a blast to rip off some mag dumps.

Seriously, once I acquired the BHP, I stopped buying pistols. 'nuff said.
I have an FN FNP-9 somewhere in the safe and that is a good pistol too.

The VZ58 is awesome. Great gun and lighter than an AK. I added that to the weapon suggestion thread.

Check out this guy dumping some mags:

Notice the total lack of muzzle rise.

And finally, here's a Chinese SKS dressed as a wannabe DMR:

I agree about arsenal. I had the SLR-105 and loved it and the 5.45 round. I preferred it over my ar for some reason. I also fired the 107 and was a fantastic weapon. I never used wolf in any of my weapons but maybe once or twice when I ran out of surplus ammunition. I usually always had a spam can though laying around which I preferred for range time.

Yeah but being behind a weapon at the range or on some land is so much better. I used to love our courses we would run through at hood. Shoot and move scenarios were the best.

Well im sold on getting a CZ Vz.58 at some point :mrgreen:
those are mean machines..
Or maybe a krink


Thats interesting about the quality of 7.62x39mm ammo though, i can only imagine how much extra accuracy could be squeezed out of even a cheap wasr-10 with handloads.



Oh, haha, Dermann, the other day your old-old video of webley shooting popped up on my recommended videos :lol:
small world eh

I can imagine, but for some reason it feels like games just haven't tapped half the potential when it comes to recreating the feeling of firing the weapon. In most games, they don't even succeed in recreating the "mechanical" feel of the weapon. For example, most games don't even have something like muzzle smoke or working selector switches. I have yet to see realistic chambering either (like where you pull the slide back on a sidearm to insert the first round.) From what I understand some rifles have the same thing, where you pull the charging handle back and you can see the first round being inserted.
