The deals are still out there

This rolled across my email from CDNN.

The sub-$400 AR’s are still out there. I’m kind of a snob and would be a tad apprehensive to run out the door with The Cheapest AR I Could Buy, but given a choice between this and a Mosin Nagant………..

I’ve seen a few YouTube videos where people melt down a few budget AR’s like this, but they seem to mostly run pretty well. The notion that AR’s are for ‘rich yuppie survivalists’ whereas  the Mosin is a good choice for ‘working folks’ kinda falls apart at this point. Give up beer-n-cigs for six weeks and any WalMart greeter in a doublewide can have one.

  1. Now that the supply of mosin rifles is drying up the I’m finding old hunting rifles for cheaper. It hard to beat a $400 AR-15 though.

  2. “Give up beer-n-cigs for six weeks and any WalMart greeter in a doublewide can have one.” Now you’ve gone and done it, you’ve awaked the great unwashed to the fact they can join the Uber-Kewl AR People. That is sarcasm if you can’t tell.

    It’s been cheaper to buy whole than build (unless you are adding specific parts) for quite a while now. It’s a good time to be a shooty-type.

  3. just about any gun will do to get you a better one. fairly likely these days that a high-dollar ar owner won’t know how to use his and you can pick it up off the ground pretty quick into the festivities. besides i can’t tell if the bullets coming at me are from a 2000 dollar gun or a 400 dollar gun. i’m always surprised, though i shouldn’t be, when i talk to fellow ar owners and ask them how many mags they have and nine out of ten times they answer “the one that came with it”. i shit you not. had a buddy the other day call me to tell me he finally stocked up on ammo for his. he bought 5 boxes…of twenty rounds. i told him put down his latte and order a 1k or hand in his man card right now. and he was prior service.

    • Could just be the alcohol talking tonight (its a good single malt scotch, so dont blame it) but i was thinking that getting an order of 1k or more automagically put you on a list….

      Not that most of us are prolly not already on a few anyway.

      And my packed ammo cans of 1k each of 5.56 are frigging heavy.
