Default Shot a full auto RPK (Vegas)

I went to Vegas and before I left, I had to see what all the fuss about full auto was about. So I went Discount firearms, I picked a RPK machine gun for 50$ with ammo and had a blast

I riddled a Zombie Nazi named Hanz with 7.62x39. I'd skip Casino's and strip and shoot MG's next time I go. Avoid the tourist traps!

They're very friendly. My range safety officer was a nice women with tat's, she was a escapee from O.C. They had a decent selection of MG's, MP5, HK53 (.223), Ak-47, RPK and RPD and the M249 Saw. ( More expensive linked ammo).

I found them to the cheapest and the best bang for your buck in Vegas. The gunstore and 702 range are tourist traps.

I still wouldn't pass up a lil gambling
Sounds like a good time. I'll have to do that for my birthday I woulda rented more MG's, but I was pressed for time to get back home. I was heading on my way out of Vegas.

The SAW sounds fun. The RPK looks and feel's heavy but it's lighter than the SAW, only thing that sucks about the RPK is those wooden hand guards tend to heat up quick.

I found it to be decently accurate and got a pretty good group.

$50.00 plus ammo is cheap I had to sign a contract for four years to get to shoot automatic weapons you certainly got the better of the deal.

The RPK is magazine fed. You're thinking of the RPD

And yes, the Belt Fed is the RPD which is a belt fed 7.62X39 Which is kinda pointless because a drum does the same thing.


RPD accepts both a mag and a drum. RPK is a squad automatic light MG, with mags only/drums.


RPK



RPD

Carrying a crapload of extra drums is a pain in the ***. It also has a quick change barrel iirc.

The really pathetic thing about this story is they won't let you shoot at anything resembling a person out here for a target.
