Thanks for the advice. I agree on AK's for defense role but I just wanted the M1 Carbine for fun shooting at the range. Besides, there is something in the little carbine that seems to make it the ultimate plinker for me. Maybe I'll go for Fulton Arms' version.S.Sumner said:BLASPHEMY !!!!!
AN AK CLONE OVER A NICE HANDY M1 CARBINE !!!
(unfornately good advice though)
My M1 is a General Motors from 1944 and I love it
but I have also had it for decades! I would not spend
what it would cost to get one today. (I have seen them at
gun shows that were pushing the $700.00 mark.) I too would opt
for an SKS with at least a 20 round mag. Or a decent AK
clone. Be careful on the AKs though, Some of the ones
I have been seeing do not look of very good quality.
A case of ammo to put up would be a good idea also!
