    So is my tiny collection (well, a part of it anyway).

    Remington 7615 Special Purpose Synthetic ranch carbine, with collapsing stock and 50mm obj. scope. 5.56mm. Offset angle mounts on order for light and laser. Primary purpose: small and medium game hunting.

    Rock River Arms AR15. 5.56mm. 40mm Obj. scope (used to have the 50mm until it was moved to the new rifle). Sports a new laser, but I'm still looking for a decent little light for it. Primary Purpose: backup hunting rifle (was primary until we got the 7615).

    Ruger P95. 9mm, nothing fancy. Has a short rail on the underside, but still deciding on which laser/light to get for it. Primary purpose: mobile defense.

    Remington 870 Express Tactical. 12ga. 2-shot extension tube for 7 total. Rem Tactical choke with integral meat tenderizer. Light mounted under tube. Pistol grip forend and adjustable stock. Primary purpose: home defense and zombie killing.

    Ninja sword and knife included for LOL-value (although I actually use the knife when hunting).

    never understood the logic behind the pumpaction rifle. its not going to lock up as tightly as a bolt action and it isn't any more accurate than a standard semi auto like the AR15 or equivalent.

    That sword is probably made of cheap drop-forged Chinese steel and not worth a flying fuck as a fighting weapon.

    It's more ambi than a bolt action. I'm left handed, as is one of my kids. Everyone else is right-handed. It was a decision of practicality.

    I still need some hardware (namely slings for the two that are lacking).

    Next purchase, I'm thinking, will be a smaller pistol, then a bigger caliber rifle. The 7615 takes those PMags just as well as the AR. It's amazing how easy it is to cycle that pump action and not lose your target. For me, it's nearly as fast as shooting (with accuracy) the AR. It seems to kick "back" more, where the AR seems to kick "up" more. Could be the stock, or just my stance, too :dunno:

    Most people I know who have them have purchased them for hunting. They are legal in deer season for PA whereas semi is not. My friend claims he can get a lot faster follow up shots with a pump. Never really cared for them myself though.

    Dumped the G21 after I took that pic :wtc: but I still have the G21SF and G19s. The HK will be leaving me as soon as my girlfriend gets her permit to acquire (stupid local law...)

    Top left is a Remington 700 5R in .308. Bottom left is a 10/22 built with a TacSol barrel, Hogue OverMold stock, KIDD trigger & bolt.

    Yeah :down:

    Likely brittle, large-grained steel that would break fairly easily.

    I usually don't care for the hair, but hers didn't seem to bother me much.

    She had laser treatment done, so there's less to shave. :naughty:

    So it's a one-shot sword. I don't think an intruder would put up much of a fight with a cheap sword broken off in his abdomen. I've given thought to a really nice katana or shoto (I'm not real tall, and want something I can draw off my back) but there are other more, uh, value-added things to spend money on right now.

    I don't think I've ever ordered anything from them. The sheets? I don't buy sheets. There's women for that. I'm guessing Wal-Mart. But hey, it's patriotic!

    Not to be mean but you got a lot of garbage bolted onto those guns (1st pic).

    I have far less tactic00l than I've seen on most arms posted here. I'm pretty steak-n-potatoes when it comes to my guns. If you notice the front scope ring on the AR, it's got the two-hole top piece on it. I used to have my weapon light and laser there. I got a different laser when I switched the accessory rail, which is closer to the barrel's line. I still don't have a light for it, and I haven't switched my front scope mount, because I'd have to re-zero the scope. Ain't doin' that in negative zero degreee weather. The 7615 has a factory picatinny rail, and only has a scope on it. The 870 has factor rail with ghost ring sights, and the only thing bolted to that is the light that used to be on my AR.

    They're quite under-accessorized right now.
