Pawn shop combination gun.

Recommended Posts

I’m down at the coast stocking my freezer with fish.  So while I taking a break from the heat the wife wanted to drive down to Myrtle Beach South Carolina.  This is an American tourist hell.  Casinos, titty bars, boardwalk, amusement parks.  Filled to the brim with  families, seniors, and Canadians.  I hate it but the wife loves the 10,000 shops and stores that line the strip. It’s about 45 mins down the coast from my fishing shack.  Anyway I hit up some pawn shops while she was shopping and snagged a Remington Spartan or as you guys know a Baikal mp94.  It’s 30-06 over 12g. Which is the perfect American combination.  Best part is it is neverfired condition.  Now I have the 223/12     308/12     the new 30-06/12.   Great day.  Plus the wife bought me a Tilly Airflow hat which is amazing by the way.  Great day!

That’s why I have the airflow hat!   Here at the coast we get a steady humid wind off the ocean.  It’s bitter sweet.  Super nice in the morning, afternoon, and night but brutal during the day when your trying to cut grass,  fish ect....

Lol, I will take a crackhead on the street corner over a senior pulling a 30ft caravan 25 mph through bumper to bumper traffic anyway.  And the Canadians slowing down to take pictures of ever palm tree they see!

I’m a sucker for a good deal!  Pawn shops are a gold mine near casinos.

Yea it’s sucks for sure.  But the Carolinas are not to bad as the have warmer winters and cooler summers.  But that comes with a price.  I have left for work and had snow on the ground and came home to 89 degrees.

What about pulling into a buffet restaurant and a three bus loads of casino goers pull in behind you.  So you end up standing in line for 10 minutes. Only to find a stripped buffet with no food on it.  Oh and the mopeds!  They have these rental mopeds that go like walking speed and they are everywhere!   And while I’m on a rant I would like to say what’s with the flyers.  If you go into a store you will have 40 paper leaflets on your window wanting to invite you to their comedy club/ magic show/ or the traveling midget stripper that is only in town for 3 shows!

Tell us more about the terrible titty bars and midget stripper!

😂 when your married and old they lose there appeal.   The older I get the more I prefer to be away from the blinking lights, traffic, bars, and tourist attractions.  I preferred to be on the beach at sunrise by myself.  Luckily we have that 1 hour north of the tourist hell.

Sorry ma’am!

Nah, it's okay. I didn't do more than glance at the picture and didn't understand what was said. I know nothing about rifles.  I have asked, now I do know. Thank you for all the kind private messages explaining it to me.

I would like to apologize,  as it was misunderstood as a joke.  But basically it is a 12g shotguns with a rifle round underneath.  The 30-06 is a standard hunting round in the USA and Canada.  It is a 30 caliber round that was fielded by the US military in 1906.  Which is why it’s called the 30cal of 06 or 30-06. Again my apologies,  Any and all questions I will gladly answer if I can.

To get a idea of the 30-06,  the 223 is what the modern USA military  uses today.  The 30-06 was ditched in the 50s as being more knock down power then the US military needed.  But it is a great hunting round and will take down almost anything in the world.

 Really, no apology required. I do appreciate all the information.
