    After a nice day at the INDOOR range I pay my fees and am ready to leave. A gentleman walks up the counter to check in and had a rifle case. The guy at the counter says what do you have in the case. The customer says its a WWII rifle. Counter says rimfire or centerfire. Customer says I dont know. So they ask him what caliber is it. The man says Its a huh .226 rifle. Puzzled the counter asked him to pull it out. Low and behold its a SKS 7.62X39 :D Neither the guy at the counter nor the woman behind the counter know what it is. I said you cant shoot that in here. :) The guy gets the hint and says that rifles too big for the indoor range.

    HAHAHA .226 caliber SKS :)

    Thought you guys would get a kick out of it!

    I would have killed to see what kind of ammo he had purchased for his .226 rifle...

    That sounds scary more than anything else :uhoh: . Am I the only one who thinks some guy who doesn't even know what kind of rifle he has (and probably doesn't have the right ammo for it) is dangerous? Who knows what he might manage to do?

    lol the guy I went hunting with this season is about my age (20) and has been hunting since he was 12. But, all he knows about his gun is that it's a 270 and that he has to buy 270 bullets for it (he doesn't know what that means though). Before we went, I asked him what brand it was and if it was a bolt action and he didn't know what I was talking about. When we went to the range to sight the rifles in and while we were hunting he was perfectly safe though so I guess I can't hold it against him. In all honesty I'm not sure if he'd know how to field strip the gun. He has a bolt action savage btw.

    Thats a nice looking SKS. Be neat to fire a .223 SKS and not a 7.62 (his was clearly unmodified with the fixed mag.) with .226 ammo :)


    So many toys so little time
