  1. I bought a ar about 2 months ago and a few days ago i picked up a 357 magnum for less than $500.00 i like 357 magnum its fun it has dual caliber use .38 special and 357 magnum is fun revolver

  2. Bird shot will 100% kill you at point blank. i do agree that much past 25 yds it would be non lethal however most self defense situations take place in3-7 yards……

  3. Damn it. Just as I'm starting to get in to guns in civilian life, this pandemic has made them all scarce and ammo even more scarce. Not to mention I live in a liberal ass state so gun shops are few and far between in the first place.

  4. Ummm… wow just found this channel.

    If he would have said 12 ga birdshot at 50 yards isnt lethal with a few things thrown in. But Point Blank lost me. Shoot anything at point blank range not spread its nasty. Full choke makes it effective. Home defense is 15 yards and under. Come on dude you say a lot of good stuff but that comment was a bit silly.

  5. Mini 14/30 is a much simpler design, easier to handle for a novice. People who are panic buying for defense, do you really think they're going to spend the time to train and stay proficient? Tell them to buy a mini 14!

  6. I have no problems whatsoever with a mini-14, reload and the handling is great but then I'm also ex-military so I can adapt any weapon quite and effectively, in New York they have completely neutered AR-15, and I know how big of a fan of the AR you are, but you would not like the ones that are legal here, it's really quite disgusting what they have done to the AR-15, one you have to break the rifle open from the and feed it from the top via a stripper clip or a pump-action AR-15, or one you cannot hold onto !!!
