If you read my last Vegas entry, then you already know I had my heart set on firing an FS 2000. Don't remember what I'm talking about?
After I grumbled about how much that sucked, I went on to ask if my second choice, the Steyr Aug .223, was available.
Denied. The Steyr Aug was "down" for the time being; I'm assuming it needed to be maintained or cleaned. Had I known that my two guns of choice would not be available, I would've come better prepared.
After wincing at the idea of shooting a pink AR-15 .223 and telling the clerk I was looking to shoot something that had little recoil and good accuracy, the clerk and tsudoku suggested firing the HK G36.
"I'm sorry, which one is that?"
|HK G36 .223|
"Fine, whatever, I'll take it."
tsudoku, who also wanted to fire the Steyr Aug .223, had to resign to the PS 90, which looks like this:
My experience at The Gun Store proved to be fruitful yet again and I had a terrific time firing the G36. I probably won't fire it again only because the gun is bigger than me (see photo below). However, from what I understand, the G36C is used as a target practice weapon in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and is also available in all SAS missions (read more about it on the COD: MW Wiki). Maybe next time I'll get lucky and will finally get my hands on the FS 2000.
COD: MW FTW!
