THIS IS NOT A DEBATE THREAD
Icrontic isn't the place for debating gun control, the morality of hunting, personal protection and concealed carry, and all the other topics that seem to get people fired up when it comes to shooting.
Who shoots here? I don't care if you punch holes in paper or hunt. What enjoy plinking with?
I went to the local range Sunday afternoon with my Makarov pistol
and put 50 rounds of 9x18mm ammo through it. Every time I shoot it, I'm amazed at the simplicity and accuracy of the gun.
My friend's younger brother brought his Bushmaster AR-15 along, so I had my first experience firing one of those. I found the .223 to have little recoil, but the gun was rather boring to shoot and pretty uncomfortable to shoulder. It felt light and plasticy, had trouble cycling rounds, and had the most unresponsive trigger ever. I don't see what all the fuss is about or why they're so popular yet. Surely a it had to do with how his was set up. I'd like to try one that's set up more for target shooting instead of a wannabe military tactical setup.
