Fairfax, Virginia - The second round of snow to fall upon the DC Metro area has left everything in a tizzy. Reagan and Dulles airports are canceling flights and plowing snow, the federal government is shut down (without the aid of their usual shenanigans), and a good deal of underage boys and girls are enjoyed a second day off from school. Another victim of the second snow fall is the NRA.

Having semi-auto submachine fun with a Heckler & Koch .22

American Rifleman says the HK MP5 is a hardcore submachine gun for operators If you've been holding off on a semi-auto you can afford the shoot, an HK MP5 A5 .22 LR could be the gun for you

HECKLER & KOCH MP5 A5 .22 LR

Manufactured in Germany and distributed by Walther Arms, beneath its flat-black and rugged exterior beats the gentler, kinder heart of a budget-conscious blowback rimfire.
