What makes this an assault rifle? It's a semi-auto .22LR for plinking, target shooting and small game hunting. The way the PRNJ writes laws, this is pretty much the only other weapon they feel safe with me having that's not a muzzle loader or shotgun.
I do want to retract my bid on this as being a first gun for a 10 year old. My kid is very tall at 10, at about 5'1" tall. Most kids are much smaller and this gun is long and a little heavy.
Good to see everyone, had fun not hitting most of the clays thrown for me. Thank you Nick for the use of your thrower, and thank you everyone for the snacks (especially Rosey).
And all you with O/Us, (especially Nick), knowing my friend, he will have one of his own by the end of the month, I'm sure...
