    Killing for sport is abominable. I sincerely hope the buffalo wins next time.

    Hi @CB Jones Care to defend your position or is a hit and run dislike all you can muster?

    So you must be against fishing.

    I don't buffalo hunt but that's just the picture that the company that makes the rifle uses. It uses a buffalo in comparison to show the size of the rifle.

    But yes if I were to hunt anything I would either eat it or sell it for food.

    I do agree with you but thought I'd change it to what it really is, there's no sport in shooting animals. To slaughter an animal for food because you need the food is one thing, to kill an animal and waste the carcase (when so many are starving, it's laughing in hungry people's faces) just for fun is totally another thing. I don't see how people can think they are civilised if they kill for pleasure.

    We've had this discussion on here before as the OP well knows of course yet choses to bring it up again, very bad taste to try and bring this subject up yet again. As for the fishing comment...well, just inane.

    I don't follow that logic. If you fish for food you eat the fish. If you fish for sports/fun you through it back after and it swims away. I don't see buffalo getting back up and running off after you've finished shooting it.

    I don't have to defend anything.

    I disliked your post...so I marked it as disliked.

    I have a feeling it would be pointless to argue with you about sport hunting.

    That cartridge was developed for killing elephants. Do you killl elephants? Do you want to kill elephants?

    I'm guessing that must be an expensive cartridge for just...plinking...

    No, not really. If I'm against anything it's the type of 'person' that kills for fun.

    Is this the current version of the ar-15 argument? And would that make it political (and therefore unsuitable for this forum?)

    Well people often fish for fun so you could say that is killing for fun too.

    I don't hunt or fish anymore though I used to. We did however use everything from the animal.
    So I am not against hunting for food but I am against sport killing. That I find repulsive as well
    as killing of any animal that is endangered or kenneled up on a preserve to be shot without any
    chance at all. I can say that I would hunt in the future if needed for food. Now a day's I like to tell
    people I hunt at the grocery store. ;)

    I don't see how. The .600 Overkill is nothing like the ar-15 and its not one of those rifles that people are trying to ban so its not political.

    Killing elephants isn't political? Where have you been?

    We're not talking about killing elephants. Steve was asking of the thread had to do with AR-15s which it doesn't.
