This is the next weapon I am going to purchase for myself.
Here is a sight in Canada that sells them. Out of stockright now, but $2999.00
In fact my second son was born in Tel Aviv. I have contacts at IWI that'll give me a much better price than that. And when I'm ready to get it sometime this summer after I catch up a few bills, they'll have one for me.
Moshe says for you $1995.00... LOL
That is great Koji.
Its a shooting S.T.A.R
Are you aware of the IWI Israeli made Tavor system family of bullpup rifles? If so I'd really like to hear your comments. If you watch Mack's shows a lot, he once did an entire episode on Israeli weaponry, forces and tactics, some of which was more or less accurate, but I started firing these weapons when they were still prototypes, long before they were put into the field. I was in Israel working with the IAWC of the IDF and from the first moment I laid my hands on the first type they invented, the Tavor T.A.R 21, which is now the primary assault rifle for the IDF. The weapon shown here is the first of a series of 4 sniper class and designated marksman class rifles. Let me know what you think please.
Impresive stats, I can understand why they use them awesome results, i'm into black powder six shooters & pistols, lever action rifles and shot guns (wood stock) I'm more traditional weapons (wife translate's it as older than dirt) she say' this morning .
The very first weapon I ever fired in my life was a hand made Kentucky Long Rifle muzzle loader that was made by the father of friends of mine who lived up the street from where I grew up as a boy. I 5 years old and the rifle was laid across the hood of the car on top of blankets and held in place by bricks wrapped in towels. It was a .64 caliber, but the man only loaded it with one quarter charge. I remember the bang and how fun it was that I could make something like that go bang! I was hooked on weapons from that day. He was the man who taught me how to shoot. My parents had recently divorced at the time and my mother wanted me to have an adult male teach me "guy" things like shooting and how to build a proper campfire etc. It wasn't until a few years later that my dad and I really got to know each other. A few years after that, when I was in high school that my father who was a pilot, taught me how to fly. I'm grounded now, since the heart surgery two years ago, but for most of my adult life the greatest love of my life besides my wife and my boys was flying.
But when I went to work for the government I started using special weapons because I spent all of my time doing things like taking hostage negotiators and other types of VIPs into harm's way to protect them so they could do their jobs. I spent many years in Israel, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia and Nihon doing this job. My second son was born in Tel Aviv. Great town by the way. Safe and friendly, an oasis in a desert full of hate and death. It's one of the great tragedies of our times about the Israelis and the Palestinians. The reason Tel Aviv is so safe is that no Palestinian is allowed to even be inside the security rings around this armored city that is guarded by two full divisions of the IDF and hundreds of attack helicopters, warplanes, and missile batteries and two brigades of the Israeli First Armored Army Group. Any Palestinian caught trying to breach the outer security ring is shot dead, no questions asked.
I always have wanted to build a kentucky rifle or a hawkens havent had the time with working, remodeling 119 year old home and fishing & hunting or work on hot rod (83 firebird)
My uncle bought an 83 Firebird when they first came out. I really liked that car. I learned to drive in a 68 Mustang.
Something I left out of that previous post here, which was the point I was trying to make, duh, old age and bad memory and two teenage boys will make you forgetful. I'm into high tech, high performance, light weight, mobile and lethal weaponry. I have a fondness in my heart for snipers even though I was never a sniper. That's a nasty thankless filthy job. But I was really grateful to them one and all especially in the Philippines, where our sniper teams saved our butts so many times I could never count them all now. You gotta be able to really trust a guy 600 to a 1200 meters behind you to shoot the bad guy over your shoulder and not through your shoulder.
for sure for sure. I have to sign off time to work have a great day
I gotta make sure they eat something besides just grab a cup of hot cha before they run off to school. They have a friend with a car that picks them up in the morning to take them to school. It just looks so bad for old pops to drive them dontcha know. And they either walk home or catch a ride with one friend or another.
medium range sniper rifle my ass....this is an assualt rifle
