Re: Black Gun "Shooter" Rant
My "tacti-cool" rifle is an FAL that shoots sub-MOA. I can assure you I will outshoot 90% of the bolt action crowd that shows up at the range. I embarassed a Weatherby owner one day.
I don't mind the ammo-spewing idiots with their black rifles. They generally leave behind their brass for me to pick up. Plus, the game animal population is generally in very little danger from them. I picked up a few thousand brass this past summer, well over 500 .223 Rem brass in one location in less than an hour.
One day I picked up over 100 .223 Rem brass that was littered all over a county backroad. What the black rifle idiots also left behind was the Cabelas dry storage box with a rubber sealed lid that the ammo came in that they had shot up at about 25 yards for "target practice".
I filled up several 3# coffee cans this past summer with their spent brass.
I wish somebody would release a black rifle in 7x57mm Mauser so I could get a large brass collection for my main hunting rifle. But I have about 400 brass already. For .223 Rem, I have thousands of brass, thanks to the black rifle crowd. And quite a few brass 7.62x39mm as well thanks to the AK crowd.
