Melvin doesn't believe in an ethics beyond those he makes up on the fly.
Just like everything else in his fantasy world.
You notice how almost every post of his that involves interaction with other people has some fantasy conflict scenario in it?

I couldn't resist this. I suspect I'll be reminding someone of this statement regularly...

And this - why does a semiauto .308 inherently have "more reach" than a double rifle? Because some double rifles are chambered in calibers a lot longer range than 308.

I think Melvin does an excellent job of defining what a "Big Bore" is.

it's a waste of time and money. The top men know that they have to brain big animals in order to reliably stop charges. So why give up the range, low cost ammo, rapidfire of an 06 or 308 auto? it makes no sense at all.

it's idiots like YOU who "think" that you'll get to have it your way. You can't make it be daylight and you can't keep people from hearig your blasts from a mile away and converging on you, from all points of the compass. You can't change the fact that 308 guns and ammo are too heavy, not really useful with a can on them, due to the bulk and weight of the ensemble. When you dont even have a silenced autorifle in 223, you wont last a month if shtf. It's your stupid ****ing attitude that will get you killed. You didn't care enough about prepping to have the right gear for it, so you'll pay the price for your cowardice, and laziness.

We are not the ones that can't think outside the box and who fantasize about a single scenario, you are! Melvin word of advice, firearms and ammunition are heavy, regardless of caliber or type. I want one that works flawlessly and will take down a target out to a minimum of 300 yds with a one shot kill, numerous firearms fit the bill. Do you really believe that is "the balloon goes up" that there will be multiple firefights every day? If so your tin foil hat is on too tight. How do you know that people who post here haven't prepared? How do you know people here are lazy? There are a number of people here that have had extremely dangerous occupations of have spent time on a 2 way range, how do you know they are cowards? Seriously, how relevant is hunting in africa to hunting in north america?

You'd be surprised, trust me. The fact that we have guns OTHER than silenced semiautos in 223/5.56 doesn't mean don't also have those. And there's nothing particularly bulky or heavy about my silenced .30 caliber.

8.5" barrel, 8" suppressor, almost the power of a .30-30 rifle, with the capacity and repeat hit speed of an AR:


I've since changed to a different brace and replaced the holosun with a used Trijicon MRO, but that's it. In my truck right now (temporarily until post-election stupidity dies down) with magazines of Hornady's 110-grain VMAX. Don't have the suppressor in the truck, but that just makes it even more compact & quick.

And other 'prep' categories, covered pretty well. Test-ran the Honda generator just this past weekend. Have three water sources on our property; four if you count the pond. Have food for a long time for more people than live there. Work out with weights and other resistance almost daily. Load my own ammo and cast my own bullets. Have so much wildlife around us that I almost daily have to dodge it in the truck (seriously).

But go ahead and school me about prepping. That should be a hoot, coming from a non-gun-owning, self-addmitted drug dependent, city-dwelling senior citizen who has repeatedly said that storing bulk food is stupid and a waste.

no they aint. there's so much supersonic crack that the ejection port pop and cycling noises are subtended 4x over or more. The fact that misses happen is BIG disadvantage to the bolt action. it's at LEAST 4x slower for a repeat hit as an autorifle. Most people kid themselves about that a lot, but it's very easy to prove them VERY wrong on the timer.
when a big animal is charging at 50 fps, you do NOT want to take 1 second to hit it again, as vs 4-5x in that same second.

I cant' help it if your'e stupid. MANY a deer has run a ways with a 308 softpoint thru its heart, at 100 yds. So you AINT dropping everything, every time at 300 yds. all you're doing is handicapping yourself. It's no big deal if an animal runs 50m after it's hit and a man certainly can't hit you at 300m after taking a solid hit with a 223 softpoint There's no point in lugging around 10 UNNEEDED lbs, making things that much worse. It can easily mean that some girl scouts can catch you.

I know that they're too inept and lazy to test what i say, or they'd know that I'm correct.

You must be either too stupid, or too lazy, or too inept to read what I have posted, or maybe your like "touchy, feely Joe" with a dementia problem? Let me repeat it

" I had a Remington M788 in .308 for 14 years, bought it in 1979, fantastic rifle. For a 5 year period i used to put a 1000 Canadian 7.62mm Ball through it each year. After 5 years it still gave groups of 1 1/4" at 100 yards.

I shot my bragging shot with a Remington M788 fitted with a Bushnel/Banner 4x scope fitted with a BDC. I was using Remington 150 grain Core Lokt. I was hunting on the prairies and only able to get within 450 yds. I got into the prone, snuggled up to the stock, dialed into 450 and gently squeezed. 6 pointer mulie buck, 1 shot, heart shot! He went straight down. I never started out hunting season unless I had fired a minimum of 200 rds in practice for that year.

If you have an opportunity , buy one, great guns"
