from the last gun thread:

The "I can't miss" gun.

"The Plinker" (.308)

"The AT&T" ('reach out and touch someone') (also .308)

"The street howitzer"

"Pinky" and "The Brain"

"Grandpa"

I would like to replace the Ruger M4 with a 6.8 m15.

also need to get a FNP90 with matching Five-seven. not sure if i'll tackle these 2 before or after the 6.8mm

When all that is done I'll get a trigicon acog for the m15 and an eotech w/ flipdown magnifier for the fnp90

after that? who knows. probably another .223 because i'll miss having one. maybe a little more old school ala m16a2 or the like

/never shot a living creature, never want to
//but no paper target or beer can is safe while i still walk this earth

also, I almost left out, this is also on my wishlist:

P226 Combat

anyone considering buying a pistol should seriously look into the p226 and it's variants.

This is easily, hands down, no argument, bet your kids college fund on the grave of your mother, one of the best pistols in the world. And that's a fact Jack.

Do military units even use flamethrowers anymore? Pretty sure I've seen pictures of them being used in Vietnam, but I haven't heard of them being used in Iraq.

Probably would have been a good way to dig out insurgents strapped with explosives.

Flamethrowers come with several disadvantages to make them worthwhile in combat situations although I wouldn't be surprised if Russia used them in Chechnya.

No they're outlawed by the US as well as napalm. Also White phosphorus isnt suppose to be used for combat intentional purposes.
As far as the insurgence go they weren't hiding in holes. (why dig a hole in the city?) Anybody who's going to suicide bomb was doing it in a car or just walked up to a check point or market place.

I was thinking more along the lines of "Operation Phantom Fury" - when the Marines went in a cleaned out Fallujah, as they were literally were fighting house to house.

But yeah, looks like they've been made 'illegal' since Vietnam.

Apocalypse Now was a great movie, especially if you willfully ignore the "I love the smell of napalm in the morning," irony Coppola was trying to introduce.

The only people who own guns (outside of police and army) here are criminals. It really is that simple.
I for one quite enjoy the fact that firearms aren't commonplace.

Ahh good thing then cause no one gets bludgeoned, stabbed or run over with cars as a means of intentional murder... Oh wait. I was also under the impression criminals had to actually break the law first. I hope you never get into a position of power be medieval times all over again....

Guns are bad, there is no reason to own a gun other than to kill people (or animals)

Guns are designed to kill, so if you own one you are a potential murderer.

To be fair, you could say the same about owning kitchen knives or a plastic bag.

Which reminds me.. I need more duct tape.

None, because I don't have insecurity issues with my fellow countrymen or an inferiority complex concerning small mammals.

I also have no homoerotic desire to shoot pieces of wood/paper with other men, whilst talking about the length and bore of my barrel and competing over who can shoot their load most accurately.

If no-one had guns, no-one would need guns.


This.Very Happy

OK, here's my view. Since I was born some quarter of a century ago, I've lived in 4 different countries - and I've never left my town. We had 2 wars and one bombing, mandatory military drafts, hyperinflation and crime rates going though the roof. Someone will think that we all ended up being blood thirsty savages, but it's quite the opposite. After you've survived all that while growing up, you begin to see that guns don't solve anything and all those stories about "collateral damage" are just plain old bulls***. In an environment where guns may look like a solution and many have them, the only way to accomplish something is by using non-violent methods. It's far more powerful to influence or manipulate someone than to force him with a gun to do something. Economy and influence are the weapons of this age.

As far as sport and recreational use goes, I'm not against it, or against guns in general. I just don't fancy them enough to be interested to have one. Plus I'm sick of all the madness that guns caused in this country in the past.Smile

I don't particularly agree with his post but he does have a point, guns have no other purpose other than killing or wounding (people or animals) or intimidating someone with the threat of being killed or wounded (for good purposes or bad)

i do not own a gun to kill... anything. that is not something i desire. though, they are certainly capable.

i own them for two reasons. 1) because i was trained to use them and enjoy the sport of being a marksman. 2) i think that (in my society at least) those that are able to defend others should keep practice in that, should the day come that someone force you to defend yourself, family or community.

there is nothing to be gained by demonizing the firearms themselves or by making premature, ignorant judgements on those that own them. the issue is too complex to be served at all with such simplistic and naive talking points such as

"GUNS ARE BAD". really Aristotle? you don't say?

given the proliferation of firearms in global society for the last 700 years... the idea we can make a law, or wave a wand and make them go away is the definition of naivety.

-at best you provide governments across the globe police forces with an unacceptable advantage against law abiding citizens should the citizens need to stand against tyranny of that government. (this is not to say many if not most societies currently face some level of this already)

-at worst you provide criminal elements across the globe an unacceptable advantage against law abiding citizens should their need to defend themselves from the criminal arise. (again, plenty of examples where this exists already)

the fact both these scenarios already exist to some level does not validate an extremist anti-gun viewpoint. instead its with these things in mind that we should be careful not to exacerbate either scenario by removing an individual's right to defend themselves.



seeing as how we live in a world where guns exist, and knowing mankind's natural tendencies towards violence:

-would you think it better to allow peoples and governments to use this fire to fight fire?
or
-should we attempt to put calamity back into Pandora's box?

attempting to magically make firearms go away is among the most unrealistic, unobtainable, overly idealistic and incredibly misguided pursuits you can find.

a firearm is an extension of our violent nature, just as the sword was before it. if peace and nonviolence is your goal, it is the responsibilities, rationals and judgements of men we should work to improve.
treat the disease, not the symptom.

Quite often those who base the cause of forced intercourse on merely having a willie and those who blame crime on merely having a gun are the same groups, their ends being a doctrine of no personal responsibility and no self control.

Personal responsibility, or the idea of it, may lead down that slippery slope towards individual rights, and hence erode collectivism.

it seems the lack of use of a brain comes from you, since I applied the same supid logic he used to call us murderers.

Up here in Canada it's OK to be a gun nut because we aren't Petarded like the USAers.
