Sitting around yesterday reading the new, things seem a little dicey in the country so what do I do when I feel a little down?

I go to the gun store.

I have a few guns, you might say I have a lot of guns. But I thought, I don't have a semi auto shotgun. I just got my F1 AR-15 and it is as fine a rifle as I've ever fired. I was in the mood for something a little different. I had no idea what I wanted, I just knew I wanted something badass. Looking at the AK-47s and some nice 45 ACPs. Then I saw this gun, it was cheap and looked fun, My sales rep she was hot and had big chee chees so when she touched my arm while I was holding it I had to say yes.

this is the LSI Citadel Boss 25



Of course I also had to buy the extra large magazine, because she said she couldn't resist a man with a huge magazine. I might regret this purchase later, but I'm taking it out to the range for a trial, or if I'm lucky some looter will stop by my house for a free trial.

I just realized something, Since the beginning of 2020 I have already purchased 1 handgun, 1 rifle and now 1 shotgun. Thank you democrats for making this all possible.

Let me start by saying that all my guns sank to the bottom of Canyon Lake in a tragic boating accident.

Next-- let me congratulate you on your newest addition to the family.

Lastly-- there are certain weapons with certain calibers that are essential.

5.56-- always needed
9mm-- most manufactured round (I think)
45 cal-- when you can't always T box something.
7.62 x 39-- sometimes you might have to use gun made in Mother Russia
7.62 x 51-- good from 1 to 1000 yds
12 ga-- nothing says "Jackson Pollack is back" like this.

You know I almost bought a 7.62 Bullpup with a folding stock until I saw this one. Honestly, I think my next purchase is going to be armor. I want some level IV plates and kevlar. I'm going for the video game warrior look.

With the way Canyon lake is going, you should be able to walk out on the lake and find them. I'm sure Craig James is getting nervous since that is where he hid his 5 dead prostitutes.

If you want to go dove or duck hunting, you'll need a 2 shot magazine.

At first I was confused until I realized 7.62 x 51 was .308.

Good list; I can't argue with it.

My new toy can deliver 8 blasts in less than 2 seconds. My 9mm has a 32 round clip and my new AR is delivering pings at 400 yards consistently.

What think ye?

It probably is 9mm, now, that they have re-designed the bullet to be a much better 1-shot stopper than the old bullet design. That is why you see so many handguns for sale that are .40S&W (which was the primary Law Enforcement round), until the 9 bullet redesign, because the new 9 is cheaper, less recoil, lighter weight-wise, and (supposedly) just as effective.

how do you hide a 9mm with a 32 round clip? I found my CZ 75 Compact too big, now I carry a MP SHIELD compact with 7 round clip, single stack. If I need more than that, I need a rifle.

If you can see a sniper, he's not a very good sniper. If someone is set on doing harm to you, not much you can do to stop them. Most bad people aren't snipers, just bad, and dumb. Most bad people are more about self preservation and won't do anything unless they think they can get away with it.

Remember, this. Wolves eat sheep, not lions.

My latest is a Winchester Model 70 Tribute addition to Jack O’Connor I found locally. They were a Super Grade edition in 2012. It was just too cheap. It is in 270. I am more of a 30-06 / 308 guy but it looked so good I could not pass it up. Oh it came with a Leupold VX-6....which is nice.

I have never really warmed up to the AR15 platform since leaving the Army 25 years ago. However I am entertaining the idea of Maybe a 6.5 Grendel or 450 Bushmaster for Hogs. Any particular platform work better than the others. I had a Colt 223 and a DPMS in 308 a few years ago. I really liked the 308 but man that thing was heavy.

The biggest reason for purchasing an AR platform, well there are many reasons, but one of the best is the fact that you can interchange parts so easily. Two quick modifications and you can go from a .556 to a 50 Cal Beowolf in a matter of seconds.

AR platform is also easy to clean and get parts for. Then there are the accessories you can get which are also easy to find and install on your own.

Then there is the ease with which you can get ammo. Outside of 9mm and 7.62 it's probably the easiest caliber you can get.

I think a clip holds paper together and a mag or magazine loads into an AR. Btw, AR stand for armalite--- in case anyone was about to say assault rifle.

300 Blackout. When you absolutely, positively, don't want to have a through and through and kill anyone else in the house.

What's a good mid priced factory built AR-15? Not looking to break the bank and am not interested in building one piece by piece either.

or go cheap and use a 12 ga. Remington 870 express pump with #4 or #3 buckshot.

**Warning: I am not an expert. I am good with a 12 gauge tho.. usually first to limit out.

Here's the list. Just buy one with a quad-rail so you can outfit it with whatever makes you comfy. Foregrip, light, etc. I would go with a flat top so you can add whatever optics to it you wish. Ruger AR 556 is piston driven so you won't have those pesky stove pipe jams.

I've heard good things about the Bushmaster, but from that list the Ruger is probably the most popular. Second is the Savage Arms for me.

My next purchase is going to be lowers, probably about 4 or 5. If congress tries to outlaw the AR I want as many as possible. For those that aren't gun nuts, the lower is the part of the AR that the ATF tracks. The rest of the parts are just parts for the lower.

Took my Boss 25 to the range, the #1 comment I got was that is was a very intimidating fire arm. That was exactly what I was going for.

Solid weapon. The only one I know of that might people pee their pants more is the AA12

How old is that video, I thought that guy was no longer making videos? You know he doesn't even speak Russian, he came up with this fake accent and has ran with it.

Still, it was a cool video and a awesome gun, I wish I could legally get my hands on a fully auto shotgun. The Kalashnikov Komrad is semi auto but can be modified to full auto. They are hard to get and double what I paid for my Boss 25. I'd still love to own one of them.

Question for the group:

Does a relatively lightweight 450 Bushmaster exist for say...less than $850?

I think I have settled on this thumper for short work, less than 150 yards. I have seen a Bushmaster Carbine with 16” barrel at this price range But my last AR was a bushmaster ( 2 years ago) and the Quality Control on that rifle was non existent. It seemed like a toddler made both the upper and lower. Anyway, any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Found one for $810.

Btw--- just giving you guys a heads up-- there are rounds that are easy to get, and rounds that are hard as he'll to get. The 450 bushmaster rounds are hard to get and if the fecal matter every collides with the over head oscillating rotors, you won't be finding any.

5.56
7.62x51
7.62x39
300 blackout

All rounds are easy to acquire and all rounds will kill something just as dead as a 450 bushmaster round. All rounds can be used in an AR platform.

Thanks For the response.

As to the price or availability, I roll everything I shoot. 223,22-250, 243, 308, 30-06 and 45-70.
I’ve killed 25-30 hogs and half a dozen deer with a 223 over the years and with a 60 grain partition it will kill anything and everything I hunt (no elk or bear). I just want something a little different. Thanks for the heads up. It is appreciated.
