Use’em if you got’em
If it’s not belt-fed, you’re not serious.
Yeah, but belt-fed is so hard to handle in the house. I still prefer a shotgun if I am under a roof.
You have to have them to use them and the Rats every chance are working to strip honest Americans of the right to bear arms.
Glad to see yelling 'Police' doesn't keep anybody from getting killed doing something which resembles a no-knock raid any more. Police officials should take note here, the guy was entirely within his rights and it would not have made any difference at all if the perps actually had been cops on a no-knock raid.
By the way, anybody who made it to a hospital alive is not the same person who got shot in the chest with an AK at close range, the real perp in this one is lying dead somewhere not too far away from the scene.
Hmmm.... My AK is in the gun safe.
But my pistol grip 870 is within easy reach at night. In the midst of darkness, shouting and confusion, I think the 18” shotgun will answer more decisively. A center of mass hit with an AK is more fortunate than likely, IMO.
It’s coming, more and more every day. The road crew out of Ft. Hancock, etc....etc. This danger is traveling north on a dark horse.
... unless the perp was wearing body armor.
Hmmm, doubt it, even in Texas.
AKM-47 most likely.
Genuine AK-47’s are RARE and expensive.
Difference in cost is about 18,000.00
Oh, and the AK-47 is full-auto capable, the AKM is not.
I have a Sega semi, clip fed shotgun.
More lead down range.
Are you a "journalist"?
Yes there are clip fed shotguns
"clip" -- or "magazine"?
Or -- are you a "journalist", too...?
And that AK would have punched right through a typical police vest.
Is this yours?
Only persons who think they know better make a fuss about any more.
You need to get a life.
Yes I know the different between the stripper clips for my 03 Springfield and the magazines for my clock ect
12ga pump - 8 round tube alternating 3” #000 shot and slug.
And I practice....
I did living history during the American Bicentennial.
The Brown Bess musket is nominal 12 gauge (.73 cal). I used to load mine with AA wads & BBs. Also, “buck & ball” was a tactical load during the RevWar.
At close range, there’s nothing like a shotgun.
