That is a century built rifle. I think they were called Centurion 58 .
True dat; plus the Centurion58 is actually about the best rifle to come from Century. The Imbel receiver coupled with the STG barrel makes for a great shooter, quite accurate. Not $3k goodness, but goodness nonetheless.

Re: NRA Scandal

Can't say that I'm surprised. Between the Ack-Mc and Ollie/Chris Cox scandals NY's A.G. just got in line and waited for the other shoe to drop.

Remember the old saying, "A fish rots from the head".

Damage at an almost Biblical level.

Half of those concrete grain silos just vaporized.

it was 2750 TONS, or 5.5 MILLION LBS of ammonium nitrate, evidently stored somewhat haphazardly in a warehouse that was also full of fireworks.
What kind of genius stores ammonium nitrate with fireworks? Perhaps a bit of diesel fuel as well? The Big Kaboom was a question of when not if.

Re: BIG BOOM in BEIRUT

Hmmm, maybe they meant to set the timer for [dd/mm/yyyy] of 04/07/2020 and not 04/08/2020, perhaps a belated fireworks display for America's B'day?

My money is on the Mossad.

Haven't listened to either band in 20 years, gone to hell is right.

Re: Importing refugees in the middle of a pandemic

Did I mention your pathetically underpowered calibers in my post? I think not, I only noted the ballistically superior NATO round, illiterates indeed.

Yes, of course it does. One of the perks of having my own business is making it 2A friendly.

Re: Importing refugees in the middle of a pandemic

We might have different political opinions than you AKers, but at least we shoot a man's rifle in 7.62 x 51 NATO, not some underpowered round designed for women, children and the illiterate.

Re: Importing refugees in the middle of a pandemic

I am not a fan of 100% lockdowns, while they may stop the spread, they do create more economic turmoil that just about any other method. I only see them useful as a means to stop a specific area from overwhelming their medical facilities. I am in favor of mandatory facial coverings [masks, face shie...

Re: What book are you reading?

Ron Chernow's biography of U.S. Grant. A very important historical figure, quite possibly more important than even Lincoln in not only prosecuting the War of the Rebellion, but in Reconstruction and Amendments XIII, XIV and XV to the Constitution.
