Default Holy Tacticool Batman

Saw this SKS for sale on KSL here in Utah. I used to think some of you guys were jerks about the way you would rip on tacticool stuff. I though agh let them do what they want but even I am starting to think it's going way too far. Also I'm no expert but I'm pretty sure that The rear site is on backwards and is also about an inch higher than the front site. I wonder what that does for his groupings?

The rear sight is backwards, and it looks like his dog sprayed explosive diarrhea all over it. This is a perfect example of why some people need to have their Sportsman's Guide catalogs taken away.

Some wannabe mall ninja will end up buying it and then post how he uses it for his job, as a highly elite personal protection specialist.

I suspect too much time on his hands, and not enough range time under his belt.

You probably have people who link to outside sources of malware, spyware, trojans, etc via their personal ads and the KSL website doesn't filter that content, nor can it prevent you from linking to it without also removing your ability to link to pictures and other websites for items you have.

Invariably, there are going to be some people out there that use it for bad and it will get a reputation as being a 'connected' site.

The SKS is crap by the way.
