demaL-demaL-yeH: See his farking thumb on top of the muzzle


Let's take a look:

No, I don't see his thumb on top of the muzzle.The muzzle is several inches in front of his thumb.

Do you even know what a muzzle is?

Christ, get out of firearms threads.

demaL-demaL-yeH: ...where it would obscure the front sight?

The front sight is folded down you nitwit.

demaL-demaL-yeH: So you told all of fark that you are a sheep and linked the article that explicitly says you are

Actually, I told all of Fark that I don't use this technique because my equipment doesn't allow for it to be employed properly.  See:

Click Click D'oh: C Clamp isn't the way to go for me, but then again my work AR has an 11" barrel... so, that would be bad.

Could you possibly fail harder?  Would you like to try again?

demaL-demaL-yeH: and none of the people doing it correctly have their farking thumbs on top of the farking barrel


Lol, why do you think it's called the C Clamp method you buffoon?  What would a C look like if you CLAMPED it to the side of a rifle?  Would part of it cover the top of the rail?

demaL-demaL-yeH: ..nor are they grabbing the muzzle.

Again, do you even know what the muzzle is?  There are no pictures of anyone anywhere grabbing the muzzle.

So let's go through some of the expert shooter mentioned above and examine their technique:

Kyle Defoor:

Notice his thumb and arm position

Mike Pannone ... same thing

And of course Jerry Miculek

So, go ahead.  Tell us that all these world renowned expert shooters are just doing it wrong.

Go on.

demaL-demaL-yeH: way south: Hacker_X: BadReligion: I fnally completed my second AR. Now I have a 6.8spc wth an ACOG and a 5.56 wth an EOTech holosght and magnfer. Both have Gelesse SSA-E trggers.

Either you have some very long arms or that grip is too far forward on that rail to be practically used. Unless of course you plain to aim from the hip, in which case why no laser?

[img.fark.net image 768x510]

Some people do the thumb over bore thing, which is easier if you have a vertical grip to the front.

/not my cup of tea, but to each his own.

Some people really farking hate their own fingers.

I particularly hate my thumb, which is why I loved my old M-1 Garand.

dittybopper: brap: Looking straight into the coward's meatus.

Auditory meatus?

Superior Nasal meatus?

Vulvular  urinary meatus?

Or was that a Markley's Law violation?  Because the whole "gun as penis" thing is more worn-out than Ron Jeremy's dong.

For having such a worn-out penis, you sure blew a huge load of semantics.

How can those be photos of a gun pointed at me when there's no one holding it? Oh, right. A clever ruse by the anti-gun nuts blaming the tool instead of the user.
