Powerbait and Trout worm deal

Recommended Posts

Yeppers and the 30-06 too. and the 30-40 Krag and the blunderbuss, they were all military developments, the rifle  in any form was developed for the military..There were never many if any AR15s in the military.

Before the M16, a modification of the Armalite Rifle patent 15 designed for the Armalite Corporation by Eugene Stoner the US military used the M14. A modification it's self of the M1 Garand of WWII. The M1 being another of those "military" rifles that according to you should been kept in it's "proper" place in the military. Except that the M1 has been used in civilian target competition for many decades. Only to be replaced by the M1a which is a semi-auto variant of the M14. Much like the AR 15 is the semi automatic version of the M16, or current issue M4. Both of these civilian versions of military rifles operate no different  than the long time deer favorite of many hunters, the Remington 742, and it's various incarnations over the years. Same for Browning's BAR hunting rifle. Pull the trigger, one round is fired, the spent case ejected, fresh round loaded, and sear set waiting for the next trigger pull to fire another round. 

A system dating back to the early 20th century, over 100 years old. The "furniture" on a rifle does not change the way it operates, only it's appearance.

Not worth arguing over, but neither the 742 semi-auto nor the BAR will fire 30 rounds in 35 seconds without suffering a malfunction due to overheat. Even if they did have the magazine capacity.

The M-16, AR-15, HK91 are designed specifically for that task (internally).  The material, head space, chamber deminsions, and bolt tolerance are what make it unique as a "weapon".  Tighten things up and it would shoot even better (but not for 20-30 shots at a time, and definatly not once it got dirty and grimey).  It's not all about the furniture.  SWAT teams and defense groups aren't enjoying them because they dig the furniture.

this topic is like religious beliefs each to his own arguments.I own several guns and love to deer hunt,never saw the need for large clips of ammo to get the job done at hand.One shot one kill.Got to agree with Wrench on this one.How about we just stop talking about these sob"s that are doing all these shootings,when there is no coverage I bet there will be a lot fewer of them.

Ditto! Only reason I won't shop somewhere is they have wronged me in some shopping related way. Otherwise, I could care less if you're conservative, liberal, straight, gay, gender fluid, etc as long as you have what I need and for a decent price.

 I am always astonished at the people that say " I own guns, but I want to take your guns away".  fwiw, the arms mentioned in that worthless paper called a Constitution were all military weapons. No other qualification than they be capable of military use; by a strict interpretation "sporting" arms might be regulated or prohibited. 

Does that powerbait work good on goggle-eye? Ever use it for bullhead or channel cat?
