    Watching the news right now, I guess some armed Mexicans came across the border and overran a guard post. The guardmen were unarmed, so had no real option.


    Anyone care to explain this logic to me? Armed Mexicans cross our border, attack our national guard, and overrun their post. But the guardsmen cannot be armed, and the Border Patrol couldn't do much either.

    It'll probably take a tragedy of big proportion to get anything changed.

    Yeah... but I guess there's a lot of people that see nothing wrong with armed foreigners coming into this country and attacking a military post.

    Yes. This is the new "Bend Over America", we let anyone that wants to have their way with us like a drunken bar slut on a pinball machine. Just as long as (God Forbid!) we don't piss anyone whatsoever off.


    Unfortunately all the asshats in Washington can think about is how many votes they are gonna get from various special interest groups. Iv'e said it before I'll say it again; it ain't EITHER the Republitards or the Democoonts that suck, it's every gawdamn one of em.

    I'm tellin' ya bro: 7.62X54 and 8MM. Look into it man, $85 for a rifle and $95 for 1K rounds. I'm just waiting for my local dealer to get some more in so I can pick and choose.

    Although I am cramming away the X39 pretty quickly too. If I had to lug a rifle around it would certainly be the AK not the Mosin or Mauser.

    7.62x54R you mean ;)

    I'd rather have a nice K98 than a Nagant, but then again.. Nagant's are a dime-a-dozen :D

    Didn't know the "R" made a difference (I guess I mean I thought there was only one kind of X54)? I just started looking into this in the last couple weeks, so don't have it all quite down yet. And those K98's are much nicer but can't get them locally.


    I'm hoping to have the M44 Carbine and 91/30 and some lovely cheap surplus ammo by the end of the month and Mauser and some ammo next month. These are the kind of purchases I can get away with without having a soulsearching discussion with the wifey about it.

    Yeah "R" means Rimmed. The mosin-nagant fires the 7.62x54 Rimmed Russian.

    Ahh, I just thought X54 was X54 period. (Good to know before I go off and order an assload of the wrong ammo though!)

    They should have armed themselves with Nancy Palooza dolls that talk them into submission.
