He considers them sniper rifles and that the term "designated marksman rifle" was invented by the media.This DOES confuse me as Marksmen rifles *ARE* in COD. Real ones.
Maybe he just considers them semi-auto ARs and thats the end of that I am the master of firearms?
As do I, but not nearly enough. I've got my two tactical rifles, my Dad's Remington 700 in .30-06, a Ruger American Rimfire in .22lr, and a couple others. No handguns right now, but I plan on buying a Beretta 92G SD in the next couple months, either a SIG P227 TacOps or Springfield TRP Operator 1911, and a Coonan Arms .357 Magnum 1911 for my handguns, for now at least. I'm also considering either buying the new DP-12 pump action double barrel 12ga shotgun or building a new AR. Then I'll have to hold off buying any new firearms until after Mrs. Dude and I buy a house. After that I can start building up my collection further, but I mostly plan on buying pre-1970 Smith and Wesson revolvers and a few hunting guns, including a new hunting shotgun, and I'd also like to buy a Shiloh Sharps buffalo rifle in .45-70 Govt and some cowboy guns.I have multiple firearms.
Well I'll have 9mm covered with the Beretta, so that's why I was considering the SIG P227 TacOps or the Springfield TRP Operator, because with either of them I'd have .45 ACP covered. The TRP Operator actually has a bull barrel, adjustable tritium sights, and a light rail on the frame, whereas the standard Springfield TRP has a regular profile barrel and barrel bushing, fixed tritium sights, and no light rail. I've shot both in the past, but shot quite a bit better with the Operator vs. the standard TRP. The bull barrel does cut down felt recoil quite noticeably.Check out their 9mm. My brother had one, with an add-on bull barrel. It shot like a fucking Cadillac.
What's your price range? I'm a big fan of Zombie Tools blades and just ordered my first knife of theirs a couple weeks ago, the Rat Bastard. It's got a big 13" blade based on the shape of the Chinese War Sword, so it kind of looks like a big ass meat cleaver. It was $275 and they use forged 5160 carbon steel for their blades. They have a unique post-apocalypse vibe to them and all their blades are hand made by just a few guys. They are tough as nails and they even put some videos out if them torturing the hell out of some of their blades, intentionally trying to see how much abuse they'll take before breaking. Now I just have to wait the month and a half before my knife is ready and shipped to me.I've been looking for a no-nonsense, no bullshit choppa. Something that can split skulls, firewood, and deer pelvises with equal ease.

If anyone has a better blade, give me a shout back.
