Canada = no gunz
Wood shop = no gaunz
I give fake tits a pass because you can still suck on them, but these are not even fake tits
Gunkata as a central ritual.
Most that adopted bullpups previously had rifles and smgs in inventory.
It was an attempt to consolidate and standardize.
The people making these types of decisions see a rifle that offers the same range as a standard configuration rifle, while also having the same overall length as an SMG and think, "Bingo! We have a rifle that fulfills all our requirements and can be pushed into service with tip of the spear infantry, mechanized infantry, general infantry and support roles!". Now the thing about these people is that they aren't really all that into guns and even less into learning how to effectively manipulate them. Being strategically minded, they MIGHT view infantry at the platoon level, but probably the company level, certainly not the squad and definitely not the individual level. When the have their pieces on the board they push them over a mountain range on a map and MIGHT consider that the dismounted infantry company they told to get on the other side of the mountain will take a bit longer to travel there than the 5 miles as the bird flies over flat terrain.
Then when operator feedback comes in:
Hey, it takes me a whole 30 seconds to clear a double feed, I practically have to field strip this thing.
YOU ARE NOT MAINTAINING YOUR RIFLE PROPERLY. OUR TESTING SHOWED 1.7 STOPPAGES IN A 2000 ROUND STRING.
Hey, this thing is clumsy to reload in the dark.
TRAIN MORE LOL. BESIDES YOU HAVE AN ENTIRE 120 PEOPLE IN YOUR COMPANY TO MAINTAIN A CONTINUITY OF FIRE. STOP WHINING BITCH.
The look on that guy's face is one that would be made by a guy that staked his career and reputation on exposing the absolute garbage of the L85 and inviting the Supreme Head of State to demonstrate the very real problem of reliability issues, only to be crushed by it working and being told by Her Majesty that there is no problem.
Swap slides and it's like doing two chicks
I personally beat my redheaded stepchildren with jumper cables, but yeah a belt would work on a rifle.
10mm is best.
Then too many Agents failed quals so instead of training them they reduced the power until they started passing again then the small hands having people complained that the grip was too large so S&W made a cartridge that approximated the reduced power loading but could fit in 9mm length mag.
I never worked in a gun store.
But my favorite overheard pre-sale conversation at a gun store went like this.
"Oh you're thinking of carrying a gun?"
"Yeah, but I've never bought one before. I went to the range once."
"Oh yeah? Did you like it?"
"Yeah it was a revolver, I don't remember anything else about it though."
"Well check this one out, I think this one is right up your alley."
"I don't know it's pretty big"
"Yeah man, that's a Ruger Super Blackhawk in .454 Casull. You're required by law to carry something like this hiking in Alaska."
I had to run to the other side of the shop so they couldn't hear my snickering, so I don't know the rest. The main part where I lost it was the Alaska part because that's pretty far away for it to be a consideration for daily carry.
Is it still in the water and how deep?
James Bond carried a .25 and never had a problem until MI5 made him carry a .32.
I'm far too honest and probably autistic to work sales again.
Last experience was an auto parts store and I fuckin hated it, it was probably because nobody that walks into a parts store looking for a control arm, sway bar link and ball joints is having a good day and they sure as hell didn't want to spend that $270 at your store.
I have the same opinion of this round as I do .45 ACP.
I'd shoot it all day, every day. I'd carry it even. It's a handgun round. If it totally throws your game off to shoot a different caliber, your game is weak and you need to get gooder. But I'll be fucked if I have to pay for it lol.
I'll always stand by my opinion that the only cartridge worth a damn in those is .45 LC.
But if I had to market something to folks that know dick about guns I couldn't do any better than the judge and governor.
"What's that buddy? You need a gun for protection? Let me ask you, when you hear STOPPING POWER, you imagine a shotgun right? Welp, this revolver shoots shotgun shells. And don't go bragging about it to anyone because it's basically a sawed off shotgun, right? That's the thing too, why would you want a sawn off shotgun? It sprays hot lead at everything in front of you and they are still heavy. Here hold this 32" over under. Fuckin heavy right? Now hold this judge. Now if you ask me, holding that chunk of steel, you feel like Dirty Harry right? Now yes he had a revolver, but it wasn't just any revolver. He carried a Smith & Wesson, the most powerful pistol in the world. Did you know S&W make their own version of this that also shoots shotgun shells? It's not even twice as much and you got some REAL AMERICAN steel in your hand."
It's wild that .40 was probably the most desirable cartridge a little over 5 years ago and like a switch nobody wants anything to do with it.
Do the Taurus G pistols not come in .40?
Side note my favorite cartridge joke that pisses almost everyone off is,
.357 Sig. The stopping power of 9 with the capacity of .40. Truly a superior round.
I saw a good one at a show a little over a decade ago for $300 and I'm mad I didn't get it.
Uh. Surely the resident HKphile would tell you how every small part in the HK45 is impervious to corrosion and all springs are nickel-chrome.
I don't know though, it's on my list but so is everything else.
Gen 3 RTF2 was the apex of glawk design
Those pathetic fucks are gonna end up killing someone because they woke up on the wrong side of bed and it's not going to end well for the agency.
Go bother Daquarius and Javier who iwb no holster carry fuc switch Glocks if you're so concerned about keeping illegal weapons out of the hands of criminals. But you won't because you might actually get shot at.
Glocks used to have Teflon on top of the tennifer.
This was also before the RTF frames so they were slicker in general.
This is a Wendy's.
Drink your Ovaltine?
Oh SHIT I FUCKED OPSEC BURN THE PAD FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK
If that kit can wipe, would you really be better off with moar Gucci?
Taxation is theft and gun laws create a monopoly on violence in addition to being Unconstitutional.
Tannerite is basically the Hi Point to any other compound a billionaire in the real estate business would have access to.
My 97 year old Remington 11 scratches that itch for me.
I might get something yet in over-under and pump, I'm leaning towards 590A1 because a proper shotgun needs a sling and a bayonet.
