[QUOTE=gpa&hisguns;2055901752]My old Buddy Butch killed as many coyotes as anyone in these parts and he did so with Russian SKS and corrosive ball ammo. He was religious about cleaning it.... He killed them all with the iron sights too.
Everyone should have a SKS in their stable. In fact I don't even own a black gun. If a SHTF day ever actually happens then I will not feel under gunned with my SKUZ! I remember when you could buy a Chinese SKS and 1000 rounds of ammo for $200. Those were the good old days and I should have bought 50 of them and 50 cases of ammo! We used to screw a 2x 2 to the butt stock and belt sand it to fit the contour of the stock. They were made for itty bitty rice and fish head eaters and not us meat and taters guys![/QUOTE]
gpa - LOL! Unfortunately, your wrong regarding this. It was made for those big Vodka & potato guys. The reason for the short stock (like the one on the AK-47) was probably to allow shouldering of the rifle, while wearing the big heavy coats the Russkies typically wore. It just happen to fit the smaller guys in the hotter climes, who didn't wear the heavy coats.
Reminds me of the neighbor of one of my friends who killed a coyote, using the iron sights, while deer hunting two years ago. The coyote was intent on sneaking up on his hunting buddy, and wasn't paying attention to the guy who shot it.
