How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment? - Page 244

Riding while heavily armed http://forum.slowtwitch.com/gforum.cgi?do=post_view_flat;post=3808486;page=1;mh=-1;sb=post_latest_reply;so=ASC

 

Anyway, that's the title. But a 223 is pretty light - a 308 would be a better choice.

I used to host a machinegun shoot (hit youtube for "Bulletfest" videos) and a fellow showed up on a road bike with a K98 Mauser slung over one shoulder and a bandolier of 8 MM in pouches slung across the other! Hardcore!

 

I wonder who has the larger testicles...Tony...or these young girls? My money is on the young ladies.

Imagine the size of ol' Orange Joolius' eyes if the cyclist over in Pennsylvania returned the thug's aggression with a magazine of 5.56.

 

The ladies are carrying their country's selesct-fire (that's right, kiddies...they are toting legally issued MACHINEGUNS! Full-auto. Capable of wiping out a school bus full of orphans and nuns in a single pull of the trigger!!!) assault rifle, the SIG STG-90. On public roads! <gasp!>

 

I have to agree, 7.62x51 allows one the opportunity to engage a gang of thieves from sufficient range that one need not soil his white oh-so-pro jersey in an unnecessary spill on the cycling path! The only question at that point is, does one prefer the FAL or the SCAR 17H?

Here's a bike that is properly equipped for the modern urban cycling path.

 

Note the MP-44, perfect for engaging multiple targets...such as urban yutes ghetto gangs, roving bands of drug addicts or libtard wealth redistributionists.

 

That's an anti-personnel/anti-light armored vehicle mine suspended in the main triange. Perfect for those time when that pearl white Escalade with double-dueces and spinnerz is chasing you up the rails-to-trails path on a Friday afternoon before the welfare checks hit the mailbox.

That has to be uncomfortable. I can just imagine the bolt catch digging into my back. 

A 308? My 308 weighs more than my entire bike. 

 

It looks like this guy was doing some sort of biathlon? 

He's got no spare magazines. 

He's also got a very interesting handguard going on.

 

Regardless this is a pretty awesome picture.

Whatcha got, AceBruceGary? Scoped FAL? Scoped M1A?

 

My gunshow find from two weekends ago...34 ounces (unloaded) of training weight.

 

Beretta 92 FS police trade-in. (America! Hell yes! Where the military and the police arm honest citizens!) 2003 production. I dropped the Hogue wrap-around and replaced it with factory grip scales. With two Beretta/Mecgar magazines for three bones.

This fellow carries while cycling...and has a custom rifle rack for his AR-15.

The 308 I'm referring to is my LR-308 (The AR10 variant).

With a 24" heavy stainless barrel, 6-24x front focal plane scope, bipod and magpul PRS stock it's quite the lead weight.

 

Nice 92FS. I had considered competing with one of those. The reciprocating mass on the slide is so low = less felt recoil with custom ammo.

AR-10...always a good choice! Accurate out of the box. Yeah, that 24" heavy contour and bi-pod do bring the weight up a good bit! Nice rifle though! It may even out-weigh my Argentine FAL with the L2A2 S.U.I.T. sight and bi-pod. Definitely more accurate than a FAL.

 

The 92 FS is the typical low mile police trade-in. Carried a lot...shot for qualifying only. I've only run a couple of magazines thru it so far, but it shoots nicely. 9 MM thru a heavy pistol, it's a pussycat with Winchester white box plinking ammo. That little LCP on the other hand, is very snappy with the much less powerful .380 FMJs I was breaking it in with.

 

The 92 with target ammunition and perhaps a custom barrel might make a very nice competition pistol. For paper work, I use an old FN Hi-Power target model with a long barrel, weight and extended front sight. For steel plate shoots, either a SIG 226 9 MM or one of the 1911's.

This thread has taken a most amusing turn.  I love the hardware pics.

 I love the hardware pics.

 

For my cycling brother from across the Ohio-Indiana border...

 

How about a home built Sten Mk III gun? Why, it's practically perfect for those of you riding a 1953 Hetchins or perhaps a class Rene Herse! Still 'in the white', we built three of them at the office. Riding in historically correct wool clothing is, of course, optional.

Lately, I've decided a support vehicle would be da bomb. I was going to track down a crappy Rain-Nooo and do up a Mavic replica wheel wagon, but fortunately came to my senses a found a post-war Jeep with a nice Ma Duce mounted up top...much more eye popping than a roof rack of cheap, flimsy French wheels, I dare say. Hot gunner is optional, but you will need to furnish your own driver and cooler full of post-ride beers (save the wine for the Renault crowd or the 'Wheels for a heavy rider' thread). A man's got to have his priorities straight!

When it comes to Swiss gals, do you prefer blondes or brunettes? No matter. I've got you covered should you decide to come shooting with me in Ohio! These classics look best when slung over the shoulder like the Swiss bicycle infantry did when deterring Herr Hitler from attempting an invasion. A bandoleer of 7.5 MM and some brandy will get you farther on your bike than Jens Voight climbing the alps during the Tour of Switzerland!

BTW, we just changed our state slogan to: Ohio! Gateway to Indiana!

Aaah, firepower! Nice, but...

 

No good riding around with a couple of miniguns or rockets. It 's all about the handgun. See it as a knife with good reach and accuracy provided the training is done.

 

A sword is more practical if a handgun is not available, and then a knife, and the all-encompassing mindset. We are talking about carrying while riding; not riding with an arsenal.

Soldiers%20on%20Cycles%20image003.jpgThe best thing that can be said about a pistol is...you can use it to fight your way to a rifle.

 

Sadly, when cycling the size and weight issues of long guns are significant limiting factors.

 

Still, Rifles...AND those sabers you mentioned!...have been successfully carried for almost 140 years! Maybe at the next North American Handmade Bicycle Show we'll see some carbon fiber rifle mounts and fillet brazed sword/scabbard holders? Nah...nothing more spectacular than 'green' bamboo tandems, townies with waxed canves covered trailers for hipsters, generator hubs wired up to Iphone chargers and 472 styles of custom, integrated bike racks on single-speed 'roadsters'.

...and the all-encompassing mindset.

 

Mindset.

 

Skillset.

 

Toolset.

 

In that order. I could not agree with you more on that point.

 

Add to that a defining attribute of mindset...situational awareness.

 

We are talking about carrying while riding; not riding with an arsenal.

 

Where's the fun in that, Captain Buzzkill?  Why...for the last two centuries great minds have been hard at work devising clever devices to keep our crime-ridden cycling paths free of thugs and criminals that would prey upon the innocent and the helpless. smile.gif

Haha thats unreal, I'm guessing cagers wont be road raging them.

ambal, no clue where you are located, but in capitalist Amerika, you can haz the SIG 550 Classic slung over your shoulder too! They are very accurate rifles! The Swiss build marvelous firearms!

 

The amazing part is that those girls live in a land where the men still have a pair of testicles. They won't get a second look from folks as they cycle their way to the shooting match with machineguns on their backs.

 

More amazing? The Swiss often drink beer and wine before shooting! <gasp!>

 

I've seen some of ther gun ranges and they shoot right over highways that are carrying vehicular traffic.

 

Here in the good ol' U.S. of A. we find and ever increasing number of feminized men. Sadly, a hellova lot of them are drawn to cycling. Why in the name of blue blazes they can't stick to olympic figure skating, I'll never know.

 

When I was a youngster, we used to sling up our rifles, put a couple boxes of ammunition in our saddle bags and cycle thru town and out into the countryside to go hunting. During high school it was common practice during hunting season to come out of the fields and back to classes about third period...handing our shotguns and shells to the principle. We picked up the guns at the end of the school day and walked back thru town with them over our shoulders.

 

Indeed, one can easily sling a rifle for bicycle transport and using one of the modern slings available still have it quickly accessible for action.
