Reminds me, on the news I heard there were 5 safeways that were held up over on the east bay. All cities I've went by on I80 many times. Been in a few of em too. Who holds up a safeway? never even heard of that.

I got dial up, so I'm not gonna be able to watch it until I go to school monday. I'm gonna guess its a vid of the safeway shooting.

Around here, that sort of thing wouldn't happen. Michigan is full of people with guns. In most instances these days, the police do less investigative work and more clean up work.

Nope, some BS about a 'really big gun' from a news station.

Yea it had nothing to do with safeway, I was just reminded of what I saw on the news by watching that. Some dude held up a convenience store or something, and he had a really big automatic gun.

Yeah, network news and local news suck. I keep saying I'm going to wean myself off of it someday. If those people ever saw a big gun, they would probably soil themselves!

Speaking of "really big guns"...http://www.zippyvideos.com/8692927706543096/punt-clays/

pffft!

The smallest "big gun" is a 5 inch 54...

Every 7-11 should have one under the counter.

Looks like a sporterised SKS in the pic Danno posted. If I'm right, thats not that big of a gun. Its an intermediate caliber and a small little 10 round magazine.
