    no just a RPG-2 which you may have seen the clip on youtube where i received a shrapnel wound.

    I am away to Ethiopia and Somaliland on the 5th of May so who knows i might get a chance to shoot something there.

    Interesting. I'll have to come back and re-read when I can focus. It's too late in the day.

    Non military.

    Grew up around guns.

    SKS - my ex owned one. I never shot it.

    Browning .12 guage riot gun (shotgun). nice gun my ex owned.

    .12 guage shotgun- my favorite gun. Remington 870 Wingmaster. I loved this gun. My son wanted it. I wish I hadn't traded it to him...

    .410 shotgun (Mossberg). I own. It's okay.

    .38 by Tarus, police special. I've seen people say they are junk, but I bought mine years ago, and really liked it.

    Years ago I had a friend who owned Ar 15, an Uzi, and a Steyr Aug.
    I shot either the Ar 15, or Uzi at targets.
    Don't remember ever shooting the Steyr Aug.

    Another friend who owned an M1 Garand.
    In my opinion, that's a heck of a gun.

    Ahh... thats right... my mistake... Embarassed

    Best of luck in Ethiopia... BTW don't fire anything that is corroded and keep it pointed down range if there is a misfire... Wink
