Glad you got out of there OK. I have a vivid mental image of your buddy wasting zombie pigs with his sidearm...
Yep an image,
Its not the first time for us... My buddy is my Son, and I wasn't too worried about him. He loved it. If I saw him go for his knife , then it would have been serious. lol He has run up and stabbed a wounded hog before....
The scope was clear until the second shot , then it was just a blurr. That scope has something loose in it . If you shake it , it rattles. I think the DPMS LR 308 was too much of a jolt for it. After this, I'm using a different scope , I got a Kruger 1.5 X 5 IMR, to go on it, which was what I had on originally. Actually, I already have the Kruger mounted on an AR-15 so I may just use that one.... We added a second weapon on our ATV's after this; a 12 ga. with 00 Buck, in a scabbard. It would have made all the difference in that situation.
