I'll play.

Here is one of my range toys.



Here is my wife's carry gun.



What I carry when I'm wearing jeans.



and when I'm in shorts.



And finally, my favorite one to shoot.

nice boomsticks all! to those who own sks's: where did you get/order them and how do they work for you? i've seen some refurbished ones online, but would be leery about buying such a rifle to shoot at the price they were quoting.

Pretty much any Yugoslavian 59/66 will be a shooter. Just make sure the sights aren't bent. Russian versions are more expensive, but are much more collectible.

Are you looking online, or at a local dealer? What price are you coming up with?

http://www.samcoglobal.com/sks.html

they're anywhere from $180-$220. they're yugos, which may explain the price, but it still seems a little cheap. then again, i have been pricing m1a's for much more, which might be skewing my perspective...

i hope its at least good enough condition to be a target/maybe hunting rifle. anyone hunt with a 7.62x39?

That's about the going price for them. Pay the extra money and get the unissued one.

If you are not an 01 or at least and 03 FFL, remember that you'll have to have them shipped to a dealer. The dealer will charge you a fee to do the transfer.

You might want to try Big 5 sporting goods or Dunhams sporting goods. They carry SKSs. Ask to see them all and look them over well. Pick the best of the bunch.

Don't forget you'll have to clean all the cosmoline off before you can shoot it!

Mini-14? Loads of fun to shoot, and very dependable. The only gun you'll never have to clean and it will still go 'bang' when you pull the trigger.

But, don't expect any accuracy out of it without alot of tuning. Minute of badguy is about as good at it gets in stock forum. Take it for what it is, and enjoy it the way it is. When you start to think you'd like something more accurate, sell the mini and purchase an AR.

Check out PerfectUnion BBS for all things Mini-14

Thanks! I think it'll serve it's purpose well, looking for something fun and simple, not overly worried about having the most accurate rifle, just something fun, compact, and versatile, also, the price was just right.

I haven't been shooting since senior year of high school and I wanted to get something of my own.

better pic:
