So I took a trip to the range today, mainly to let the M44 get some exercise. When we arrive, there's 5 other guys there, including an older dude who was the typical gun nut guy who just runs around talking to everyone instead of shooting.. anywho, I break out the M44 after noticing that the 4 other guys are shooting AK's and AR's. Loud-mouth know-it-all immediately starts telling people to cover their ears and shit instead of letting me have my usual fun.. and after I rock off a few, everyone wants to shoot it. In other sad news, the best gun shop in this area is officially closed.. no more fondling AK's and AR's and getting cheap ammo on the way to the range now. Guess I gotta look around the interwebs for an AK and a SKS now.. got a few others I want to buy as well, but damn that shop closing really put a damper on the plans, as he had ALOT of what I wanted..
