Pretty self explanatory by the title, can a minor carry guns in South Carolina? The law prohibits ownership of a handgun for those under 18, but the ownership of long guns is legal to minors. I haven't seen any federal or state law on minors carrying long guns, but I want to know if I've missed anything.
EDIT*** Asking as a minor who wants to carry a rifle in the trunk of my car.
I have an opportunity to acquire an excellent Argentine 1911A1 1927 pattern, the ones made under Colt licensing. How durable are these guns? How accurate are these (or comparable GI war-time 1911A1's) in comparison to a modern gun such as the cheap Springfield mil-spec Defender 1911? I know that the 1911A1 would be all steel, while the Defender has some plastic and MIM bits. I'm just looking for a shooter to go with my M1.
These are the two photos they sent me. It does not seem to have a magazine, but I'm not sure it's an air/pellet gun either, because I don't see a spot for a CO2 cartridge. What is this thing? Sort of looks like a really old browning buck mark.
As the title says, I am trying to decide on what optic I want on my rifle. I currently have a Beretta ARX-100, but I'm also considering picking up a basic-bitch, Magpul coated, 16" beater AR just to have. These optics will be for general range use out to 200 yards max (longest local range), home defense and maybe light competition or hog hunting in the future. I am not a professional door kicker or anything like that, just a regular guy looking for a rifle optic. Unfortunately, I have an astigmatism in my dominant eye, so red dots are out entirely. I'd considered an etched 1x prism, but I'd prefer some magnification if I'm not running a red dot.
Neither are particularly expensive or high end, but I can't afford both right now. The 3x32 is cheaper, lighter, more compact, simpler and probably more durable. It can also be mounted lower on my ARX-100, which is a plus considering how low its cheek weld is. The 1-6x24mm has the edge in versatility with its variable magnification, but it's more expensive (especially with the mount), larger, heavier and more complicated to use.
If anyone has owned similar optics, what are your thoughts on the subject? Did you prefer one or the other? If so, why?
