While doing press for his new film “Bullet to the Head” (ah, the irony or should I say the hypocrisy) Sylvester Stallone (who has shot, blown up and fire-bombed zillions of imaginary people in his movies) was quoted as saying, “Who needs an assault weapon?...You can't hunt with it.”
Really. Well, Rambo, take a look at the great buck I shot a few years ago with the Remington R-25, which is not a so-called assault rifle, but in fact a modern, legitimate, semi-automatic deer rifle that is available in 3 HUNTING chamberings: .243, 7mm-08 and .308. The R-25 in .308 that I used was fun to shoot and very accurate with factory Core-Lokt loads (photo below, groups we shot at 100 yards). I killed that buck with one heart shot.
Plus, and this is the thing that matters, it is your and my right to own and hunt with an AR-style rifle if we choose to. comment
