    Wrong again. I offered a choice between two rifles. Your inability to interpret the English language is not my problem.

    Lying again: go find my original post wherein I suggested a choice between two rifles. Silly little lawyer tricks won't work here.

    Go prove I confused the two.

    Wrong again. 30-.06 is a ubiquitous term for a hunting rifle. Not even a nice try dude. So between a 30-.06 and BAR in a close firefight, which would you choose?

    And don't forget: we're not talking about a BAR that has a liquor license displayed; we're talking about the Browning Automatic Rifle.... funny how you lawyers didn't go near that one. You all just took it for what it said - "BAR"...

    A 30-06 FAILS TO DEFINE A RIFLE. IT proves you really have no clue what you are talking about.

    Another Jet bit of silliness. Using JET logic, the 30-06 was DESIGNED FOR HEAVY COMBAT-it was DESIGNED AND INTENDED FOR WARFARE! From Wiki (yes this is accurate)

    For these reasons, the U.S. military developed a new, lighter cartridge in 1906, the .30-06 Springfield, "cartridge, ball, caliber .30, Model of 1906", or just M1906.

    [QUOTE=jet57;1070106343]Wrong again. 30-.06 is a ubiquitous term for a hunting rifle. [quote]
    Ok, I need to clarify this: are you stating that “30-.06” is commonly used as s synonym for “hunting rifle,” regardless of actual caliber the rifle is chambered in?

    And also, when you say “hunting rifle,” do you mean a particular kind? Hunting rifles can be bolt action, lever action, semi-automatic, single shot, or pump action. But I suspect you have s narrower definition.




    Not even a nice try dude. So between a 30-.06 and BAR in a close firefight, which would you choose?

    Refresh my memory: what caliber cartridge does the BAR use?
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    You asked:
    There IS a difference between a 30-06 and a BAR wouldn't you say? Which one was specifically designed for heavy combat?
    As was pointed out by several posters, what you proposed initially was a choice between a cartridge and an automatic rifle chambered in that cartridge.

    I have heard it used to describe an undefined (except by that chambering) weapon. Generally by someone mouthing off in ignorance ie :"If he keep bothering me, Ima get me a 30.06....."

    No excuse or reason for it on this board though.

    The Real gut buster is this. For years, Jet has been trying to argue that the main reason why AR-15s should be banned (in reality it is because he cannot own one in California) is that it was "designed for warfare" or "for heavy combat" (even though the current rifle known as an AR-15 has NEVER been issued to any military forces).

    Now the 30-06 cartridge was specifically developed by the US MILITARY for combat. It was designed for the standard issue military rifle our soldiers used in WWI and WWII. It was used in the Browning machine guns that were standard issue in WWII, the BAR automatic rifle, used in WWII and of course the rifle that replaced the Springfield A303, the MI Garand. Also chambered in 30-06.

    Yet, jet calls the 30-06 " hunting rifle" (true, after its popularity in the military, American hunters adopted the cartridge) while claiming a rifle designed and marketed for civilians-a "weapon designed for heavy combat" or "for warfare". Seems Orwellian to me
