Tattoo Money - fail sauce.

Post by youonlywish on Fri Aug 19, 2011 7:09 pm

So had put away some money for a new tattoo - a sleeve. Got a MAJOR letdown at the parlour and have decided to hold off on a tattoo altogether. Anyone going to Lucky Souls Tattoo in Cambridge, ON - think again. I had a whole list of artwork and text printed out - 2 full pages. The guy comes back after a month with a sketch (ROUGH) of a half sleeve of like this underwater scene and suggested I look into a couple sharks or a whale or something... brutal.

So - that free's up some funds on my end for a new toy.

Have been looking at a new M14 from Marstar. Only problem is that I don't get out shooting as much as I'd like to.

Have also been looking into re-entering the game of airsoft... - I kinda see it as free training, at least in terms of communiation and movement, even though there is no real risk involved. It's also super fun.

What are you rocking right now for rifles? I'd suggest a CZ or an SKS over the M14 because it will allow you to get out to the range more often (ammo is dirt cheap).

For rifles - I've got a beautiful Russian SKS and a few 22's.

I could do a CZ - not sure if I'm up on the longer barrel though, looks kinda odd.

At first, yeah, but it grows on ya. If you know how to move, that 18.5" barrel is not going to get in your way.

Past that - I could also get a camcorder for better youtube stuff - more 'live video' and not just voice overs...

Ahh the options.

That would be nice, to be viewing the thing that is being spoken of directly, but that's doable with the voice over.... just tricky. haha

Looked into that - and have taken into consideration the fact that I take WAY more pictures than I do video.

Getting a flash for my Nikon to start - maybe some gear too.

an SKS is a great tool, I have a vz 58 (restricted) and love it but I still go back to the sks. One of my instructors always said, be aware of the man with one gun, because he knows how to use it very very well.
I would suggest that you pick up some ammo for the russian beauty and train away with it. Avoid getting an other gun until you have the commitment and time to train with it. After all it comes down to training doesnt it?
After reading all your posts and seeing where the CSG is going I would have to say that a new camera will help you get a bigger audience and you also learn more about being a sheepdog by making the videos.
That is my two cents on it....
Stay safe......

Corrosive ammo though. There's some cheap .308 available in Canada now, so it's not a bad option.

Clean you gun after your range session. Problem solved.

That's a good point - and another good thing plays into that.

When you HAVE to clean the gun - you HAVE to learn the gun. I like that.

I don't want to be cleaning my gun after every range session. Maybe you/others are different, don't know.

It can be a pain in the ass, especially if you have several guns that fire that garbage surplus stuff. I know that it takes me about an hour after every range sessions to make sure everything is good and clean.

If you check out the prices, the non-corrosive ammunition is still cheaper than most .308.

I'm going to start looking for a .22lr, though. Probably a Ruger 10/22 with a bunch of tacticool goodies on it. It's four cents a round as opposed to 40 cents, and all of the shooting fundamentals still apply... it's just that your ranges are shorter.

Have you considered a Remington 597?

I've put about 2000 rounds through a 597 VTR, I'm not a fan. They cycle like a Chinese 1911 (a stoppage every 30 rounds or so) and don't have a very large aftermarket following so it's hard to improve upon the platform. The same can be said for most newer firearm designs, but there are better options out there for less.

The Ruger 10/22 is tried, tested, and true. When clean and lubricated the thing shoots like a Glock - boringly reliable.

I have nearly 0 issues with my vanilla 597. It was probably your ammo. I also like the bolt hold open feature.

Maybe it's all the extra bits they have on it that makes it so terrible.

Might I suggest the S&W M&P 15-22, full ar15 functionality on the cheap ammo side. I love mine for plinking and moving arround with, and gives you the feel of a larger ar in .223 or .226 which is nice.

Somehow I get the idea that MOST topics in the OT section will end up in gun-based debating....


And I'm PERFECTLY fine with that.

Is that one restricted? Ruger makes a "tactical" 10/22 called the SR22, pictured here:



Non-restricted!

Wilson - if you're looking for a done-up 22...

I've got an archangel I havn't touched in a year.

I've got some hunting stuff I need to square away for this season before I pick up another firearm. My cabinet is full as it is! But you can go ahead and check your inbox here. lol

Ya the m&p 15-22 is restricted, but 200 cheaper then the ruger ar10/22, plus is a full function ar, vs a case over a 22. Meaning it breaker down like a real ar, and the action lock/release works vs ruger's button that doesn't do anything.
Mossburge makes a good on that 300 new but you have to do a complete take apart just to clean.

I'm against buying a rifle that I cannot take into the woods to shoot.
