Black Rifles



With our economy in the condition that it is in, with all that has just happened in our world and with everything that still might happen, you may be wondering if you really need to run out and spend a goodly amount of your hard-earned cash on a black rifleThe choice should be yours alone, without intereference from the government. You are the only one who can answer that question. If you have heavy debt on your credit cards you may wonder if it is a responsible act for you to add more debt by buying one of these pricey little items. Conversely, if you already own a black rifle you may be wondering if now may be a good time to sell it in order to pay down some credit card debt. You fear there may be another “assault weapons” ban and you fear there may never again be a chance for you to own one, but you can’t help but wonder if a black rifle is truly a must-have item. Again, only you can know what is best for you.

There is only one black rifle left on my rack, a pre-ban
Colt Sporter Match HBAR (heavy barrel) .223; it is designed primarily as a target rifle. I don’t own it for tactical reasons, and I don’t own it for practical reasons; I have it just to have it. I have sold other rifles on consignments (through FFL dealers, of course) during some previous “gun-runs” that were caused by pending anti-gun legislation. Such panics were opportunities to make some money. Years ago, I sold one rifle in order to pay for the furnishings needed for my house. If the current high prices of black rifles rise even higher, I may just sell this last black rifle (through a local FFL dealer; this is not a solicitation so please, no email offers) and live happily ever after without an “assault weapon.” If the unthinkable happens in our country, a black rifle would not be my first choice for defense; it would be near the bottom of the list simply because I shoot better with many other types of guns.

Without a black rifle, just what are you to do when hordes of worm infested
Zombies wake from their dirt-nap and proceed to devour the brains of the populace? If you are a shooter or a hunter, chances are good that you already have a gun that will serve you as well as any black rifle. If you do not already own a gun, as an alternative to purchasing an expensive black rifle take a look at a good old-fashioned pump 12 gauge shotgun or a lever-action rifle chambered for .45 Colt, .357 Magnum, or .44 Magnum. The .30-30 cartridge, commonly used in many lever-action deer-rifles, is equal to the 7.62.39mm used in the AK-47.

The skill and attitude of the shooter is what matters, not the type of the weapon. Somewhere in a neighborhood near you is a very nice, attractive female who sports an old High Standard Model 200 12 gauge 2-3/4 pump with a 28 barrel, along with a 6’’ Colt Python .357 magnum revolver as a backup. Even without a black rifle she is equal to any challenge; Zombies had best beware.  The choice should be yours alone, without intereference from the government.
