    hello everyone,
    just wanted to say hello to you all.
    hope i can contribute some.
    i am a divorced father of 2,1 in army,1 in law school..i enjoy firearms,dont really hunt but love to tinker with them(guns),love to shoot them.decided to get back into skeet shooting,havent done it in 20 odd years.was a member of the juniour marksmen team when i was a kid,and really liked skeet shooting.
    thinking of getting a black rifle..have an ak..but i debating on the black rifle,as to whether i should go with the direct gas impingement(old school) or go with a piston type.
    lotta research to do,even considering a 6.8 spc
    the 6.8 may be redundant for me as i have a milled bulgy,so ballistically they are somewhat similar.
    the .223/.556 is really interesting to me on a few levels,i like that the ammo is pretty cheap,it is pretty accurate,and you can carry alot.
    thinking of the ar type for a shtf thing really..
    anyhow..just some random stuff from me.

    G'day ! Welcome !

    my thought is if you have a AK already and get a AR styled round chucker then in a SHTF situation you'd have the best of both worlds

    dont forget a decent handgun!!

    cheers to ya
