  1. I love the news reports when they arrest someone and find "hundreds of rounds of ammunition". Fucking pikers. But that also shows how little the general public knows about firearms. You can burn through a couple hundred rounds on a very modest trip to the shooting range. If you are really interested and invested in firearms, having 10,000 rounds on hand isn't that unreasonable. Also, if you are serious about training with your firearms, ammunition will be your biggest expense.
  2. Oh, I'm aware of the poll tax and literacy test, and what they were historically used for. In the modern age, and at face value, I think everyone should have to pass a literacy test to vote. If you can't read what you are voting on, you have no business voting. Also, universal suffrage was a mistake. Letting the beneficiaries decide how much money they get to take from the benefactors never ends well. Heinlein had it right in Starship Troopers: you get to vote after you put skin in the game.
  3. Holy shit, I'm just trying to imagine how hard the left would flip out if voting was as involved as buying a machinegun. Somehow, we can't even ask for identification for voting, but now they want to tax the shit out of guns and ammunition.
  4. Oh boy, I'm going to need some popcorn for this one. Don't get me wrong, I do understand somewhat of how people outside the US feel about America's firearm proclivities, but there are some fundamental cultural and legal aspects you are missing out on. So, firearms that are introduced into commerce in the US are required to have a serial number. This number officially isn't tracked in any database, and by law the federal government cannot maintain a list of who owns what. They find other ways around that law, but the amount of paperwork they have to process to pin anyone
  5. "See something, say something" they say about red flag laws, unless it's the son of some radical islamic imam training kids in the New Mexico to commit school shootings. If that's the case, they will just dismiss the charges and sweep it under the rug.
  6. As I'm reading through this thread, I'm envisioning some feminist who had come across a monkey's paw years ago. The wishes have been granted, and the fingers have curled in. The other issue is that anyone who legitimately points out issues that males are facing are labeled as MRAs and derided for even entertaining those ideas, even if they are a female. To a certain degree, I feel that 3rd wave feminism has contributed to this problem of mass shootings.
  7. I'm working on an improved magazine, with a modified version of the previous feed tower architecture I tested. I had to reinforce the feed lips to do this, so I made this test assembly to check the feed lip / bolt carrier clearance. So far so good. I was talking to some other people in the industry about this on Saturday. They are big fans of Hexmag, so I told them that I was developing a new magazine. I jokingly asked if they new anyone with half a million dollars to throw at this project, and dead serious they said they knew a couple people who might be interested. So
  8. Antifa false flag? Writing a BS manifesto is easy enough, but that's not the most likely scenario.
  9. It's mostly the left waiting to be able pin the whackjob on the right so they have more justification to push an antigun agenda. The right recently has learned how to counter push this by pointing out which subset of hard to pin whackjobs they are, then finding ways to tie that to left wing ideology. The exception is usually Islamic extremism, where the left will breathlessly report about a gay night club being shot up, and how it must have been by some anti gay redneck Republican thumping his Bible as he send fags to eternal damnation. Then they find out it was done in the name of Allah, and
  10. It "culturally enriched" 13 people, jeez get it right!
  11. Playing around with tweakscale. The crew compartments are the only thing at 1:1 scale. That engine puts out a peak thrust of >40MN.
  12. Sure, it's not the most accurate rifle, but it is still the sexiest. Retro is why I put laminate on my shorty 74.
