LOL... You're funny... Did you get the 32 round magazine or go cheap and get the 10 round one? It's probably a good idea to carry a few spares. If you're using the 32 rd magazine, load short by a couple of rounds, to reduce spring tension. I'd suggest you modify the sear, because that 8/10ths of a second rate of fire on semi auto is going to be a little slow. Since they were mass produced out of Miami and are spring operated you may want to avoid over lubrication, that can lead to a excessive build up of powder residue, which could result in misfires or jamming. Basically if you're counting on what was originally a $200. piece of crap, without some modifications, you're in for a short haul.

im more of an old fashioned kinda guy. pump,bolt,revolver.
i like that sense of security you have with less activity going on with the weapon. as you know it only takes one good shot, and I have that covered.

First off, your dog would be the first thing shot. Let's see, dog vs. gun? Are you serious? If I want something I will get it. Plain and simple. Your shotgun is not going to stop me. My people and I come with automatic weapons. The only thing you would be able to do is duck and cover. My point is, if somebody wants something bad enough, they are going to get it.

So I guess you are up all the time? A rifle that can shoot four football fields aint much good if you are not holding it. You would never even see me coming. I am not saying I am going to do it, but dont be a fool. If someone wants to get you they will.

I agree with those who are wondering about reports of looting. There's a real news story in there. Sheriff McCaskill said he had no reports of looting on Tuesday morning, but about one hour after that, I caught a looter sneaking onto the backside of my property. He ran off when I yelled (luckily for me). When the deputy arrived (about 15 minutes after calling dispatch), he told me they had "lots and lots" of reports about looting. My question is: Are they only counting the reports where they catch someone, or are they counting all the calls about looting? I guess it's not really an issue now, but if there is ever a next time...
