albatros183: ? how could you load the magazine without the gun being near you

I know, right? For a second I didn't think it would work. But it turns out that some magazines are removable. Like you can totaly remove it from the gun and it becomes it's own piece. I thought it was a bit weird doing it that way since I was always taught that you lock the slide back and then start jammin' bullets down into the bullet-out hole. I don't know why you'd need to remove a magazine, since it would be like detaching your gas tank, and carrying it to the gas station for a fill up.

But like anything, I suppose there are some sort of professional applications for that, that normal people probably never use. Like the permanent press setting on a dryer, the turn signal on a car (I know I am turning, why do I need a reminder? Again, there is probably something professionals use it for),  or that light bulb in the stove. Fark that stove lightbulb. I tried using it once, and it took farking FOREVER to cook brownies that way.

albatros183: MythDragon: albatros183: Spanky3woods: Tr0mBoNe: MythDragon: albatros183: You racket won't help against a phase-plasma rifle in the 40 watt range.

/Seriously could a plasma gun even exist in the 40 watt range?

It's the future, right?
 Like how lightbulbs used to be 100 watts, but then we have bulbs that make just as much light and only use 14 watts.
So in the future, a 40 watt plasma rifle is like a 5000 watt plasma rifle of today. They are much more effecient.

I'm no sciencer but a 40 watt laser will do a good job of etching materials or cutting thin sheets of metal. Industrial lasers are about 3-10 times more powerful while military "melt missiles" lasers are about 50-100 times more powerful.

It's also phased which means its more awesome.

Hey, just what you see here buddy.

/might close early

Probably shouldn't put the shells on the counter.

/Pro Tip

Went to a gun store/range. Carried a rifle in, slung over my shoulder, safetied and with the bolt locked back. I accidently bumped the bolt release into a display and then you hear the loud *chack* of the bolt slamming foward. I immedietly stopped all movement and showed my hands, because I figured they probably wouldn't like that sound. I was right. About 4 different employees had their hands on their sidearms. They all just looked at my for a few seconds before they decided  I probably wasn't about to start blasting in the store.

I was getting one of my first guns, and I was curious about how hard it was to load the magazine. I asked the guy if he would let me load a few cartridges so I could see how it was. Without the gun anywhere close to me, of course. Even though the gun was put back behind the counter, he looked extremely nervous about it.

? how could you load the magazine without the gun being near you?

also does not invalidate my point that you probably should put the shells on the counter.
