    Default Took my FAL out for the first time.

    I took my new FAL out to the range, today. After reading all the possible problems with it, I was anxious to try it. Well, it worked great. I put 200 rounds through it without a hiccup. This included 2 full magazines fired as fast as I could pull the trigger, reload, and fire the next magazine. It shot a mag full of commercial SP ammo with no problems, either. I played with the gas settings and have it shooting at 4. This is an awesome rifle. I am very pleased with it. I got a keeper, here. It is something I would trust to protect my life.

    Thanks for the suggestion Rew. Cammobunker, thanks for the link to take down instructions. I printed it out and bound it a small binder. Now, I have a full color take down tutorial.

    Have I crossed the line from shooting enthusiast to gun nut? I love my Evil Black Rifle.

    Good to hear. Most FAL's should run between 3 and 6, so you're right on at 4.

    DSA has mags on sale for $5.00 and you get a free spare mag spring with each one.

    I don't know of a better deal.

    You should have seen her, Folks.

    All I heard when I met SD at the door of the gun show was CETME, CETME, CETME.

    Then she sees that FAL and the money just leaps out of her wallet.

    CETME was quickly forgotten--LOL!

    I went looking for CETMEs. Did we see any at all? I had considered the FAL but, thought it would be too expensive. Thanks for going with me Zoid. You're a cool guy.
    At that price, I wanted to grab it quick.
