I have shot goats, pigs, fallow, red and sika deer with an SKS.
I have 2 unfired chinese ones in my safe atm.
Just sold a russian one witch had done a LOT of work for an offer i couldnt refuse.. allowed me to get into my 10/22 TD.
Mine shot saucer sized groups at 100m with the iron sights although I am a crap shot so Im sure it coulda done better.
They are cheap to run, fun to use.
Take it, you wont regret it
