It's a honey of a rifle to shoot. I often use it in the 500 meter competition for my age group, in the 5.56mm x 45mm NATO standard round rifle class. However for the tournament I'm currently competing in I elected to use my new Model 12 Mark X Special Purpose Rifle. It's a little more accurate at the 600 meter range competition I'm entered in this time. But the Beretta was my first rifle and I love it so much. It's a sweet shooter and very fun to shoot as well. In combat this rifle is downright lethal too. In competition with it I use the M262 OTM match round 5.56mm x 45mm which is a +P round as well. The recoil on this rifle is almost non existent too. My Burris Scope and my new Night Force NXS Scope fit perfectly with the Picatinny rail system I added to it. I also use a shorter 10 round stanag magazine in competition because it's shorter and lighter, even though any stanag mag will fit this rifle. I know that Catfish88 is going to want one of these when he sees it. I hope Reaper308 doesn't think it's a sissified rifle because the action is so easy and the recoil is all but not there. Well but these things are important in competition. It makes an excellent hunting rifle too with the OTM round you can take down deer, but it works best for smaller game such as rabbit and turkey. These rifles are used in Olympic Competition too by the Italian Olympic Shooting Team. In fact the one pictured here is a member of the Italian Olympic Shooting Team.
Your right, I do want one of these now! That's a very sweet rifle. Until now, I didn't even know it existed. You have one of these too? You got a lot of nice toys Ryu. I bet it shoot sweet. Thanks for the info. Also, thanks for including a picture of a cute girl with the rifle. Always a plus.
This was my very first real rifle too! I love my Beretta and even though it looks very much like the FN FNC or even the AK 5 Basic, this is a true AR style rifle. It's a real honey of a shooter and the girl ain't half bad either neh. :)
Do you hunt rabbit in Tennessee? Rabbit makes for some very good eating and it's low fat and good for you and it's great if you fry it like fried chicken but it's even better in soup or stew. Don't use an OTM round for rabbit! There won't be any rabbit left to eat if you do, but use the lighter weigt 62 grain SS109 of the IWI SSG109 56 grain 5.56mm round if you hunt rabbit with this weapon. That OTM is just too much bullet for a small animal, but if you hunt deer then this weapon with the OTM match round is a perfect deer rifle.
Did you get that last letter late last night about me and my brother wanting to pick your brains for some medical stuff we will need for our article on Georgi Chuikov? If not then I'll just ask you here if we can. We will need to know some things about the types of wounds and their treatment for things like deep thigh wounds to the femoral artery and of course head shot wounds. But please don't answer these questions here. I or my brother will phrase the questions better to suit our needs for our article.
Again, thank you so much for your kindness and friendship to me of course but especially to my aniki chan (elder brother) Ryo.
Yea, I do hunt rabbit. I like it with dumplings. It's a good meal. I'll be glad to help you and your brother out anyway I can.
Is on Showtime EXT right now, of the 1972 Munich Olympic Games wherein Black September, a notorious splinter group of the PLO captured and murdered 11 members of the Israeli Olympic Team. All the perpetrators were killed in a botched rescue operation by the German Special Forces. I say botched because all the Israeli athletes also died. However, Golde Meir who was the PM of Israel at the time, called together her learders of the Mossad and they sent out the Elite Sword of Gideon Group to hunt down and kill all of the members of the leadership of Black September. All but one who is believed to still be in hiding in Iran. But if he's still alive eventually either the Sword of Gideon or the Sword of Daniel both of the Mossad will get him. He's number 2 on the Israeli wanted list after the Blind Sheik who is the spiritual leader of Hamas. That guy is #1 on the Israeli hit list. They want to get this guy so badly that it's only a matter of time. He can't hide forever and blind or not, holy man? or not, the IAWC is going to get him. You should watch this documentary and you'll see something of why there is so much hatred on both sides. Imagine it though. Sending a team of assassins into the Munich Olympic Games to assassinate innocent athletes, just to make some kind of point.
my business keeps me away from tv. but i'll have my wife record it for later viewing
It might interest you to know that Black September no longer exists. All but one of the members were hunted down and assassinated by the Mossad's Sword of Gideon. Also in case you didn't know, at least two former PMs of Israel actually served in the Sword of Gideon including Olmert. I forget which of the others the other one was though. I'll have to look that up for you and get back to you on it. Gomen nasai neh.
i will google sword of gideon and read up on them...THIS is getting intresting...thanks friend
This organization is considered the world's standard by which all Intelligence/Counter-Intelligence ie Spy organizations are measured. They are simply the best in the world at what they do. Ehud Olmert himself is a former officer of the Sword of Gideon and he participated in the hunting down and assassinations of the entire leadership of Black September. These are the real deal, cloak and dagger type spies. They are extremely successful and of course extremely dangerous. Just to give you an idea of how good they are, back in the late 60s circa 1968, agents of the Mossad were able to secretly infiltrate the breeder reactor facility at Savannah Georgia and steal over 300 lbs of weapons grade plutonium and smuggle it out of the United States and safely returned with their prize by to Israel. From this the Israelis made their first nuclear weapons. Since that time of course the Israelis have built numbers of PWR and PHWR powerplants and from the second type, they breed plutonium in the isotope cookers inside the reactor cores and this is where they get their weaponized plutonium for their nuclear and thermonuclear weapons. It is believed that the Israelis have stockpiles of weapons grade plutonium and uranium in the thousands of tons tons today. Perhaps as much as 3 thousand tons of each of the two. This means they are in possession of more weapons grade fisile material than the UK, France, India, Pakistan and North Korea combined. this would make them fourth on the list after the US, Russia and China. I myself have seen the concentric silo rings around Tel Aviv. Of course you can't actually see the silos or the carapaces that protect them since they are buried under the sand, but this area around Tel Aviv is guarded by two whole Armored Divisions of the IDF and one Infantry Division and there is a Mossad headquarters there too along with the main headquarters of the IAWC, that's the Israeli Air Wing Command center that controls the operations of the most elite group of Special Forces in the world, the Israeli Air Wing Commandos.
why do you think the the israelis have not killed that sob in IRAN..this dude travels all around...i know if somebody kept saying to all my friends i don't have the right to live...i would do something about him..jus askin
The question is who, how, why, when and where to strike. Our forces are currently stretched, not to the limit as some here at gunslot seem to think. we are not in nearly as bad of a situation as has been bandied about around here. And believe it or not enlistments are up and more young people are volunteering to serve everyday. However the Israeli forces are far from being stretched thin at all. The point of attack comes when it become obvious that the Iranians are close to building an actual weapon. Before and I mean before they have a deliverable nuclear weapon, it will be destroyed and a great many Iranians including their leadership will pay a price they are not prepared to pay. I get sick of hearing how we should treat the Iranians with kid gloves and that given a chance this so-called student democratic movement that is supposedly going on in Iran today will take root and eventually move Iran from being a terrorist state to becoming an acceptable member of the world community. Even if such nonsense were true, they will have a usable weapon long before this change will come. They will not hesitate to use this weapon either. They will of course NOT attack Jerusalem because this is the Third most Holy City in all Islam. But a major city such as Tel Aviv would be a lethal risk and a million people could die in a nuclear blast there. Before the Israelis will allow such a possibility they will turn Iran into a glowing green cinder, just like my dad says and they won't care how much bloody murder the world may scream at them. It will simply have to be done. They will of course use their most common tactic to get what they want and that is they will come to us first and lay out the situation as they see it and then after they give us the mollasses then they'll feed us the sulpher. It will be their typical offer of either you people, meaning the U.S. will do it for us, or we will do it and you guys, meaning us again, will not like that. The Israelis would become excessively violent in the case of a nuclear threat to them. The world and even the more informed people here at Gunslot have no real understanding of the true military capabilities of the modern Israeli Defense Forces. You simply would not believe what they can really do. And it just doesn't make any sense to me at all that somehow the leadership of Iran does not understand this. It is folly for them to continue to work towards production of a viable nuclear weapon. The Israeli reaction to the production of such a weapon in Iran will stagger the world.
But she is very nice. As for rabbit, try garlic-roasted hindquarter with a bit of cheese sause. Wonderful. .223/5.56 is awfully big for rabbit. .22LR does just fine. And no matter how powerful some may say the MK262 round is, .223 is still illegal for deer in some states. That's a law definitely worth checking out, as a game warden can confiscate everything used in the commission of a game crime. Gun, truck, equipment, everything.
I missed it while I was answering another question. Could you please repost or give me the link or the name of the thread where I can find it so I can answer you please. Thanks in advance!
Women in the French paratroopers? Huh... liberals...
I want one of those....I might even take the rifle also
