Guns are scary! I can't get one because of all those drug bust..... But they're scarier because of that fact!!! I have a "Love Gun" I shoot all the time. I shoot it at negros who roam the neighborhood here in upstate NY. Oooooow, there goes one now. Let me show him my version of the "Knockout Game". It's impressive!

I'll pass. .308 is more manageable and I can get that in an AK format in semi auto.

I prefer my m1a in 308, but that wasn't a choice

Sure why not? Some were rechambered to accept .308.

I just don't like that weird pinging noise is all. I'd prefer something more modern.

Yup! And that mil-surp .30-06' is still relatively easy to find at good prices.

That 'weird pinging noise' is an audible indication that the last round in your clip has been ejected and your weapon is empty.

It is very important to know that in the heat of battle when you're a little too busy to be counting rounds. That weird noise as you call it has saved many an infantryman's life.
