Show me a machinegun made of bacon and I'll be impressed
 
2014-07-03 08:50:59 AM  

ForeRight: Not sure what caliber that thing fires, but it's most likely something that's at least 50 cents a round (where 7.62mm is).

"I gave this about 250 rounds. but I think around 150 might actually be enough."

Congrats, you just spent $125 to cook a few strips of bacon!


You must be a hit at parties

/I can get 7.62 for about 20 cents a round. Depends on which kind of 7.62.

Nazi gun?


Nope.  Post-war Rheinmetall MG3.  Based on the MG-42, but in 7.62 NATO.

No machine gun? You're a Fauxmerican at best!

No, he spent $125 having fun. The bacon was just a bonus for a job well done.

I've use an AN/TRC-170 to cook a bag of popcorn. Tape the bag to a fiberglass pole and stick it up into the microwave beam. And BAM. Popcorn. Of course it took a while and a lot of the popcorn got burnt, and I probably blew the bit error rate to hell. But that's not the point. I was able to use a half a million dollar piece of communications equipment to pop popcorn!

I also used to stick soup/ravioli cans up into the heat exhust vents as they got pretty hot.


If you're not finding fun new ways to exploit government equipment for your own use, you're just not trying.

This.

My rack of equipment in the Army had a reel-to-reel tape recorder on it.  Why?  I have no farkin' clue, I never, ever saw it get used for anything official.

But back in the days when the panic over "backwards masking" was all the rage, I used to record rock songs off of shortwave station Superrock-KYOI on one of my receivers, then flip the tape reels and try to spot instances thereof.  Of course, the only ones I ever found were the intentional ones that were obvious when you listened to the song forwards.

But hey, I was bored, and you couldn't do stuff like blowgun competitions* during the day shift.

*Take the wide fan-fold paper, roll into a tube, and tape it for blowgun.  Take the long wooden Q-tip thingies for cleaning tape heads and put a paper and tape cone on the back for a dart.  Empty paper box or full burn bag for a target.

I've heard all the stories about how you can abuse the fark out of AK's and they'll still fire, but that takes the cake!

I remember seeing a show on Discovery or some such one time with some dude running around with an AK where the stock had been replaced with a bit of tree, not in the normal sense that someone had shaped a piece of tree, this was literally a chunk of branch sticking out of the back end of the rifle.

We used to pack our boil in bag breakfasts around the exhaust manifolds after morning warm ups. Our bracket was far enough down the list that we wouldn't be racing for at least two hours so there was time to warm them up and eat. It was a 400 Cubic inch V8, so that's pretty Red, White and Blue, no?

Also, wasn't there a guy that cooked a turkey with thermite a few years ago?

No.Just no. Teller or anyone else would have been extra crispy if they did that. That was clearly a joke.

Lovely bacon. Crunchy, and with just a hint of a nitrogen/petrol aftertaste.

I prefer my pork products fried in cosmoline.

Never said anyone was harmed. But last time I checked "will no one was hurt" isn't the same as "responsible".

If I have to feed the dog, giving my neighbors 7 year old kid a machete to chop the bag open like a samurai in my garage is completely irresponsible, even if no one gets hurt.

1) treat a gun as though it is always loaded.
2) don't point a gun at anything you dont intend to destroy/kill.
3) dude, we should totally strap food to a gun and cook it via rapid fire!

I am all for responsible gun ownership, but using your gun to cook bacon as a joke stunt is just stupid at best, and a very bad example to send to all the other "responsible gun owners" who ask their buddy to bring some bacon over so they can try it.

A firearm is a tool for personal defense and target/sport shooting. Not a cooking implement, and to encourage such things as a reasonable usage is just feeding idiots with guns dangerous ideas, and paranoid gun control people even more things to point at and say "see what they do!"

Do you watch myth busters? Do you see the safety procedures and protocol they discuss and demonstrate? Do they say "we're gonna boil an egg with a flamethrower because 'murica"?

If you really think this is a valid/reasonable use for an automatic weapon, then I don't know what to say. I would prefer people who treat a weapon of this capability as a fun toy to cook bacon not be allowed to get their hands on one.

Yet again, you have failed to provide any reason that this activity increases the chances of the people performing it or those around them suffering harm.

You have yet to give even one reason that this activity is dangerous.

All you have stated is that it's silly and you don;t like it. That's fine and valid. That's your opinion and you are welcome to it.

However, if it is dangerous, you should be able to give a real reason for it.

Elliot8654: Remind me again about responsible gun ownership and how it is a tool, not a toy, and safety and freedom again?


When I was in the reserves I did training with two MGs (C9 LMG and C6 GPMG) and I considered the idea of cooking bacon on the barrels. They get seriously hot, very fast. Didn't mean it was any less a tool.

Please show me where anyone was harmed by doing this.

Never said anyone was harmed. But last time I checked "will no one was hurt" isn't the same as "responsible".

If I have to feed the dog, giving my neighbors 7 year old kid a machete to chop the bag open like a samurai in my garage is completely irresponsible, even if no one gets hurt.

So, how is this being irresponsible?

1) treat a gun as though it is always loaded.
2) don't point a gun at anything you dont intend to destroy/kill.
3) dude, we should totally strap food to a gun and cook it via rapid fire!

I am all for responsible gun ownership, but using your gun to cook bacon as a joke stunt is just stupid at best, and a very bad example to send to all the other "responsible gun owners" who ask their buddy to bring some bacon over so they can try it.

I saw no evidence of your rule 1 or 2 being violated, not was the functioning of the firearm impaired in any way.

Again, please tell me *specifically* how this is irresponsible.

It is actively demonstrating/encouraging the usage of firearms as a novelty and for silly/dangerous purposes.

Do you honestly think that cooking bacon with a machine gun to be funny/famous on the Internet is in the category of "responsible usage of a firearm"?

I believe that it does not add any danger to the activity.

What danger is there in this action? How is it dangerous?

Please be specific in you reply, as repeating "this is dangerous/irresponsible" does not state why.

To be polite and honest, it portrays using firearms for obscure novelty purposes as a viable usage for them.
Do you really think it is unlikely someone will see this and come to the conclusion "Hey, I wonder if I can (insert activity) by using my gun instead?"

Fine. You got me. Actively immediately dangerous may be the wrong word. How about these?

Silly.
Stupid.
Poor judgment.
Against good firearm etiquette.
Encourages improper firearm usage.
Insulting to people who respect firearms as a tool not to be used lightly.

This is like the guys who Lane split through dense traffic on a motorcycle. Is it technically legal under the circumstances? Yes. Is it stupid and gives responsible riders a bad name? Oh yeah.

I've use an AN/TRC-170 to cook a bag of popcorn. Tape the bag to a fiberglass pole and stick it up into the microwave beam. And BAM. Popcorn. Of course it took a while and a lot of the popcorn got burnt, and I probably blew the bit error rate to hell. But that's not the point. I was able to use a half a million dollar piece of communications equipment to pop popcorn!

I also used to stick soup/ravioli cans up into the heat exhust vents as they got pretty hot.


If you're not finding fun new ways to exploit government equipment for your own use, you're just not trying.


Pro Patria Vigilans, Dude!

Haven't Troposcatter rigs gone the way of the Dodo by now?  They were being phased out when I was in.
