    Bang is good.

    So I buy 300 BLK for $.71, 7.62 for $.69 and 223 for $.40. $.03 seems like a fair trade off.

    I thought Canada limited air guns to <500 fps.

    The air/ pellet guns are great for winter fun. They don't make holes in the house walls.

    everyone would do it!

    Anything over 500fps and of a certain muzzle velocity or whatever are considered firearms but the regular plinking ones are available to anyone.

    Just asking, how can an air gun be considered a firearm?

    I have breakbarrels that are almost sonic at muzzle. Most of the rest/others are 600+.

    When you say plinking, what is considered plinking?

    My pellet gun does just over 1400fps....

    Love the old Garands. Drilled with them in high school ROTC. Was a member of the rifle team too. Practice range right on campus! Those wuz the daze.

    20 rounds are $100. Every house should have one.

    I suppose there could be some Freudian slippage going on there but sometimes what you call homophobia is normal disgust, like what happens when you watch a dog turn and lap up its own turds, wallow them around and suck them down. The defense of homosexuality is something that the left hasn’t thought through.

    Would you defend a turd sucker? You know, some guy who has a craving for human excrement? “Oh well, he should be allowed to fish nuggets out of women’s commodes while women are using other stalls.” “It’s progressive you know. They deserve our respect!” Sure you would. Why wouldn’t you?

    Is there no such thing as neurosis or psychosis in the left’s dictionary? Homosexuality is a mental defect and it is not genetic.

    I guess they figure if they are going to regulate a .22 they may as well lump the more powerful pellet guns in with them. Plinking is just recreational target shooting blasting away at cans, bottles, stop signs...not looking to go winning any trophies.

    I wish I made the money to plink with 7.62x54.

    I am generally using my air guns (penny a round) because I can plink in my backyard and woods. When out of town, the 22s (A dime a round) are good and inexpensive.

    This is where I get 'plinking' ammo...

    http://enews.freedommunitions.com/q/..._cY5QM6GfrD26U

    Note: If you give them your email address... you will get daily emails of sales... literally 7/365 (not kidding).
    The prices are good... and they have free freight specials regularly.

    Lat time I bought 9mm reloads... it was something like $0.19 and a fraction each.

    You don't have any shops selling military surplus ammo? You can get cases of the stuff for not much more than 9mm. It's not premium stuff but good enough for blasting targets.
