You know what? The variant us Smurfs have to use is the L98A1/Cadet GP, which is even worse. To be honest though, the rifle isn't that bad, but for me, theres just one point, which is utter madness.

The safety catch is in such a position that to push it to Fire you have to use your trigger finger, meaning that if you're patrolling with safety to Safe, and then you get bumped, and want to lay down some fire in return, you have to take your finger off the trigger, push to Fire, and get your finger back on the trigger before you can fire the rifle.

Might not sound like long, but when its so much easier of you can just flick off the safety with your thumb, without your finger coming off the trigger.

It's just a .22 for plinking, but I'm relatively happy with my Walther G22. Has some feeding issues, but most Walther's are pretty picky when it comes to ammo.

Called me an hour later to said it had cleared but by then it was too late as I was almost to class. Oh well, I'll pick it up today probably.

Also, I looked at a couple of other guns there.

They had a Remington .22 rifle with scope for $119, and a Russian M44 7.62x54 for $99 (they had a bunch of these). Would be fun to buy just to have  Smile Are those good prices?

The prices aren't bad, a .22 to plink with is always good. I have a Ruger 10/22. As for the Moisin Nagant, that's not my cup of tea. Why waltz when you can rock and roll? Ammo is cheap for it.

I'm a big fan of Marlin's when it comes to .22's. Never seen anything more accurate and you can pick one up for the price you mentioned above. Just my opinion, I have nothing against the Remington.

Everybody needs a good old military rifle laying around to be ready for a doomsday scenario. If you run out of ammo you can use the MN as a shovel.

I have a good old SMLE #5 Jungle Carbine .303 British I'd never part with. We were out at the range one time when a case got stuck in a shotgun. There was an old couch that someone had dumped so my brother beat the shit out of it with the .303 and we got a long piece of spring steel out of it to use to punch the empty shell out of the shotgun barrel, then continued shooting. I'll never forget that!

Another question...I know GM will attempt to sell me their "service plan" for $19.99. I will get a free professional cleaning (they charge $50 usually) and free repair within a year past manufacturer's warranty...well...Taurus comes with a lifetime warranty. Is it worth it or not?

I wouldn't do it. The more you disassemble and reassemble that gun the more familiar you are going to be with it and the more likely you'll be "in tune" with it's reliability and wear patterns. And I simply don't trust anybody else to mess with the guns I use for defense (or competition or qualifications). If you'll do the cleaning yourself you'll be glad you did later because it's just that much more experience you'll have.

Remember Private Pyle and "Charlene" in the movie "Full Metal Jacket"? That's not unreasonable for a gun you're trusting your life to.

That's kinda what I was thinking too. I put aside a cleaning kit, cleaning mat, snapcaps, holster (lvl1), and picking up some various ammo today. Got some JHP for $3.99 for 20pack there. Brass, can't remember the brand.

Seriously speaking it sounds to me like you need to learn to patrol with your finger off the trigger, a round in the chamber and the rifle set to fire (semi unless you're on point). The only safety that matters is your brain, exercised through trigger finger discipline. I'm pretty sure that in training they want you to avoid shooting each other and the easiest way to do that is to make you carry the rifle on safe, but you don't want to be walking up some goat path in Afghanistan on safe if it's that difficult to make your weapon ready to fire.
