Whether the liberals or the conservatives suck worse, it doesn't matter.

It's the terrorists who are winning.

I'm shocked, SHOCKED that such a thing could happen in the paranoid environment created by "reasonable" gun control advocates.

Some Junkie Cosmonaut: hardinparamedic: kombat_unit: Kinda hard to say on a AK,but you're probably a tier 0 operator, on a different forum.

No, but in Basic Training I was taught that the gun is always loaded until proven otherwise, especially when it has the appearance of such.

I was also taught that when I was 10 years old and attended the TWRA hunter safety class that was mandated for me to take to get a hunting license.

And was reenforced in every class I've ever taken in CCW and street survival.

But yes. Let's pretend that I'm trying to be the next FLYNAVY by pointing it out.

Magazine in the action? It's loaded until you clear the gun.

And after you clear the gun, it's STILL loaded.  Firearm is always loaded as far as safety purposes - also learned from every sane gun safety source I've ever participated in/come across starting with my grandfather when I was 9.  So yeah, I don't give a damn either what the situation may be, you keep your finger away from the damn trigger and the firearm pointed in as safe a direction as can by had until you are ready to fire the damn thing.

No exceptions - ever - cause that's what gets people hurt and killed that one time out of a hundred when something goes wrong or you forgot something.

/you willing to bet the life of a friend, family member, or poor random SOB in the area around you that this isn't that one time when shiat will go wrong?  Is that EVER a good idea when you really think about it?  Any time you start in with any variation "Oh well in this situation it's ok to brush off safety rule X" you are just placing a bet that it won't be you that it happens to.  This'll be cold comfort at the funeral.


And you guys want to own these things?

BarkingUnicorn: This is why umbrellas should all be pink.

Subby, if you're not British then you must be a fan of "Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos." I've never seen "bumbershoot" used anywhere else on this side of the pond.


The old Quick Draw McGraw cartoon series had a character named Bumbershoot Bam who went around smacking bad guys with a brolly (now there's a term you don't here on this side of the Atlantic).

As an Oregonian (wet side), I am suspicious of anyone carrying an umbrella. Tourists, transplants and terrorists. Pay attention: This is OREGON, you're going to get wet!

That AK-47 is charged with a magazine, and his booger hook is on the trigger.

Serious question...

When your mother was pregnant with you, how much paint thinner would you say she generally consumed during the course of an average week?


About half of what your mommy chugged. I'll send you a coloring book all about it so you can attempt to keep up.

bk3k: I think subby has never seen Black Lagoon or subby would never mock the umbrella as a weapon.

[media.giphy.com image 320x180]

Yes that is an armored combat shotgun umbrella.  Every maid should have one.  Also the TSA should never allow someone who is carrying a briefcase to board a plane ...

[static.giantbomb.com image 567x479]

Gotta be safe about this.


The only thing Black Lagoon proves is that men need background checks and licenses to date a woman

hardinparamedic: GF named my left testicle thundercles: [i1172.photobucket.com image 850x637]

The other day i saw a guy open carrying a pistol while on his motorcycle, straight through the center of the state university. Not a single person gave a shiat and even blinked an eye. the exact same occurrence on the east coast would have caused a menstrual implosion with deployments of swat teams and school shutdowns and CNN coverage. but here, its totally normal.

God damn i love my state.

Wow. Loaded weapon AND finger on the trigger. Sgt. McAvoy is a dumbass.


It figures you'd be the idiot to say something like this.

The gun may or may not be loaded, there is no way to tell from a picture.
His finger is not on the trigger.

Reminds me a couple years ago of my uncle getting his hunting rifle worked on at a nearby shop, then picking it up and walking two blocks home to his place with it... the cops stopped him just about the time he got to his driveway, saying that they received 5 separate calls in the past couple minutes reporting him.  Of course he was licensed to carry it and the gun was unloaded, and he was breaking no law whatsoever, but people are so panicked these days at the sight of a gun... something that never crossed his mind.

I was listening to him talking to my other uncles over the weekend of how they'd take their guns to school (unloaded) during the day, so that they could go pheasant hunting after school.  It was totally normal.  Someone would see a kid walking down the street with a gun (in a little "city" in NY with 50,000 people, mind you, not exactly a little rural hamlet), and think "oh, he's going hunting" not "oh, he's going to go try to kill some people".

Maybe we should stop blaming guns, and instead focus on how we're making peoples' lives so miserable that they want to shoot people.  The ones that want to shoot people, I mean - not the ones just trying to stay out of the rain.  We're clearly doing something wrong.

High school ROTC rifle team members in 1989-93 at my old high school walked to the flag in the mornings with their rifles and live rounds in their pockets, to put up the flag.  They did the same thing at the end of school to take down the flag.  Yet oddly, they didn't shoot anybody.

I know of three highschools in the Portland metro area that have shooting ranges built in.  Because not so many years ago they had shooting teams and it was a sport just like baseball.

You are young, aren't you?

Apparently the concept that it was once a grade requirement in high school Rotc for a cadet to fire a rifle once on the rifle range in the gym building, at least at my old school anyway, escapes people.
