What is your goal with comments like this?

My goal is for you to think about what your posting. This is a hunting and shooting forum. Bashing a particular type of rifle just because it was similar to one used by your adversary is just fuel for the anti-gun community so they can say "look - even gun owners don't think these have any place in the sporting world".
We all need to stick together and support each other's choice of firearm, whether we don't care for it or not.

Allow me a retort. If that was your goal I believe it would have been better if you had stated that in clear language in the beginning. The premise of this explanation of intent is fine but the method was lacking. The "childish" remark was clearly out of line and has created the type of friction that creates heat but no light. PM me if you have an issue with my opinion.

It is time to move past this issue.

I like the Will Rogers quote in your signature.

My grandfather...on my mother's side, was a military German allied soldier for the Dutch in the Boer War. He almost drowned in the Okavango Swamp; and he did not want to go near any open waters after that incident.

So I can understand Big Uncle's stance on Russian and German made military weapons.

One of my favorite hunting rifles is a slightly sporterized K98 8mm Mauser --- It is a real gem.

Message received and understood. I apologize that sometimes my comments come out without being clear and concise.
But really, to leave the range and ruin YOUR day just because someone is shooting a gun you don't like is a little odd! Maybe you have a bit of PTSD that you're not aware of and should discuss it with someone. Just saying.

We are good.

None of that PTSD stuff for me. Nothing odd, no excuses, I am just getting old and cranky.

I have a growing dislike for non-suppressed SBR's at our range. They may look tacticool, but Lord Heavens...they sure are loud.

And yes...I do leave the range early --- because of them.
