14''barreled 12ga pumps,semi and full auto assult rifles,supressed 7.62x51 semis.Night vison equipment.
For those debating on which weapon to buy or to buy next,make your best educated guess and get Something and as much Ammo as you can afford.
Pistol calibre carbines close range.
AK-47,AR-15,Mini-14 -30 and similar rifles and carbines.For our purposes a carbine is short or very short barrel,best in house or house to house or heavy wooded or brush country shooting.
Rifle med to long barrel,more velocity better sighting radius,sometimes awkward in heavy cover,med to long range shooting.
Pistol caliber pros are they share same ammo as your side arm,cons usually much weaker than rifle calibers.
For most something in common military caliber may be good option..223,308.same as 5.56-7.62x51.Eastern bloc Ak-47 shoots 7.62x39 Ak-74 shoots 5.45x39.Mosin-nagants shoot 7.62x59r A very powerfull round at least equal to U.S. 30-06 this round is shared with Dragunov's.
Some of newer versions and clones can be had in U.S. calibers example AK in 223,AK in 7.62x54r,AR in 7.62x39.
MY call would be at least .223 for close to med range.
If you look around Ammo can be bought in bulk cheaper.
A quick caliber history lesson for those starting out is originally light machine guns,machine pistols, fired pistol rounds 9mm,.45acp,etc.
Battle rifles like Enfield,Nagants,Springfield,Mausers etc fired larger full size rounds like 7mm,8mm,30cal which includes rounds like 30-06,303british,7.62x54r.later assult rifles fired an intermediate round bigger than pistol smaller than rifle.Usuall range is somwhere between 300-500yds max Aprx.
A couple of places to start searching for ammo and magazines to feed them might include places like Cheaper than dirt,THE Sportsmans guide,THE Armoury,there are many others but I can personally vouch for all 3 of these no problems to date.
Some mil surplus ammo is listed as penatrator or steel core this will go through hard objects better but does not expand on soft objects.Anyway buy Something and ammo a.s.a.p.I'm not sure what but something IS going on.
What do you think? Right on or not?
