Wow. Just wow.

RN-50 - Serbu Firearms, Inc.

From the company's website:

Quote:
The RN-50 represents the first time a production firearm has ever been inspired by social media. Designed in conjunction with YouTube celebrity Royal Nonesuch. The RN-50 is a unique approach to the .50BMG rifle. Rugged, lightweight, accurate, easy takedown and low price make this rifle a winner! The simple screw-on breech cap is not only strong, it applies absolutely symmetrical support to the cartridge case, allowing for incredible accuracy. Using top quality materials as well as parts from our proven BFG-50 rifle, the RN-50 gives you high quality at an incredible price, along with lineage to a safe, proven firearm that's been in production for 17+ years. Whether you're looking for the least expensive way to get into shooting .50BMG or you want to outshoot your friends' expensive match rifle, the RN-50 is for you!
The Dunning-Kruger 50, made by and for people who shouldn't be trying this at home!

Default Re: I think we need a morons with guns thrad

I recently watched a video by a guy who has the manual to the SLAP rounds, oh yeah, apparently there’s a fucking manual, so Moron level going up, and “Do not fire rounds through muzzle break!” is in big letters in that manual. Guess what death trap has a nice big muzzle break on it.

The sabot is a multi piece soft plastic that guides the dense metal projectile down the barrel and then flies apart as it exits. If it begins to fly apart or otherwise expand in a muzzle break the plastic used on these rounds can leave tiny bits of residue. That residue can flash if too hot and create a sudden gas back pressure at the muzzle that’s like it being plugged for an instance. It’s possible but only speculation on my part that this could slow the oncoming sabot more than its projectile, leaving a cavity for the cases expanding gasses to push it into the sides of the barrel compounding the problem.

If the overpressure did happen at the muzzlebreak it does suggest both it and the barrel are overbuilt to the point where the one and only failure mode is metal cap to the face. There’s also some irony in the metal tab that almost killed him being there as a “safety” to make sure the failure point is screwed on all the way.

Long story short, there are several good reasons that in guns like this there is usually a big heavy bolt and ideally a lot of heavy metal between that big heavy bolt and your face.

It’s pretty amazing to watch a state purposefully become the Mad Max Badlands.
Texas set to allow people to carry handguns without a license or training | Texas | The Guardian

In preparation for the feral onslaught of social interactions and the roving fuel gangs expected next year, Texas is poised to make it easier to purchase and carry a handgun with zero background checks or training. How can you defend your bottle caps and raid the neighbors for theirs if you don’t carry a pistol at all times?

I can’t wait till someone who makes sure the family is loaded up before they exit the house chastises me for how SF streets have poo on them or suggests those who wear masks live in fear.

I presume we’re going to see an increase in these, “The burglars were unarmed until they stumbled upon a cache of easily accessible loaded weapons marked ‘in case of burglary’ with which to hold the police off with.”

An Activist judge!
This is about guns not gays...
oh, I mean a patriotic American doing his judicial duty, has struck down california’s assault weapons ban, and he starts out, like this.

Ruling or Ad? Like the Swiss Army Knife, the popular AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home defense weapon and homeland defense equipment. Good for both home and battle, the AR-15 is the kind of versatile gun that lies at the intersection of the kinds of firearms protected under District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008) and United States v Miller, 307 U.S. 174 (1939). Yet, the State of California makes it a crime to have an AR- 15 type rifle. Therefore, this Court declares the California statutes to be unconstitutional.

Look gais, it’s good not just for home but for battle, you could defend your castle and take this to kill the commies!

Hopefully, as we continue the souths dream of everyone being their own sheriff, this will result in a proper weapons ban, or perhaps, the libertarian dream comes true and weapon makers can be held liable for the damage done buy their weapons.

The assault weapons ban got bogged down in specifics. It’s all about amount of fire vs time. Besides that few people actually need guns, No one should own anything beyond a 5 or 6 shot revolver, and all rifles should have internal 5 round box mags with a loading gate that requires the user to push in each round individually. Anything better and it’s a visit to a licensed range to rent time on their controlled weapons.

If you like your constitutional law with a side of argumentum ad populum . . .

Quote:
Instead, the firearms deemed "assault weapons" are fairly ordinary, popular, modern rifles. This is an average case about average guns used in average ways for average purposes.
. . . and QAnon-level batshittery . . .

[T]he evidence described so far proves that the 'harm' of an assault rifle being used in a mass shooting is an infinitesimally rare event. More people have died from the Covid-19 vaccine than mass shootings in California."

America's favorite Morons With Guns held a rally yesterday in support of the male moron's U.S. Senate run. The rally was as sad as it gets, but this write-up was epic in each and every way.

Quote:
Noted local criminal Mark McCloskey played host to a barbecue/political rally on Sunday afternoon, drawing tens of admirers to the sweltering parking lot of a closed outlet mall in St. Louis County to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the time he pulled a gun on a crowd of people who otherwise would never have noticed or cared he existed.

. . .

Initially, fellow criminal and proponent of armed coups Michael Flynn was scheduled to speak, but he was subbed out for North Carolina Congressman and notably dumb guy Madison Cawthorn, who also did not show up. But the show must go on, as they say, and so we were instead primarily treated to the emcee abilities of former radio host Jamie Allman, who lost his longtime job back in 2018 after taking to Twitter to pontificate about ramming a hot poker up a teenager's ass.

McDonald's Customers Pointed Gun at Manager in Salty Fries Dispute

Quote:
Texas police arrested two individuals for allegedly pointing a gun at a McDonald's manager in a dispute over the amount of salt on their fries.
Quote:
In another incident, police in Memphis said they arrested two customers for starting a shooting at Burger King because their chicken sandwich had too much hot sauce in it.
That's reasonable.

In the absence of photos I'm assuming that (a) the two individuals were white, because the cops didn't shoot them during the arrest and (b) the restaurant staff were white, because the police took the call seriously.

A US gun company has produced a real gun that looks like a toy gun made from Lego.



It's obvious to all that there are plenty of legitimate and sensible uses for such a weapon - the only surprise is that some enterprising US company hadn't already done this decades earlier.

The spoilsports at the Danish Lego toy company are attempting to get the gun banned, so it probably won't be around for long. :(

But I'm sure the enterprising manufacturers can make other real guns that look like toys - maybe an assault rifle disguised to look like one of those super squirt water pistols? :idea:

I don't know how Lego think they can do anything about it, but they have an army of lawyers with too much money and time on their hands and they always fight absolutely everything and everyone just because.

They lost their trademarks on the 3D shape of most of their bricks a couple of years ago, that's why you have all these Lego copies around. So you can build toys that look and work exactly like Lego bricks, but you can't make Lego-shaped soap or T-shirts with Lego bricks on them. But what they pretty clearly never thought about was registering a trademark concerning firearms.

https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#adv...nNumber&so=asc

Nice Classification

There are the most exotic things covered, but the Nice class 13 (firearms etc.) is missing. Not sure how that applies to the US or what kind of legalese nonsense would be involved.

At $600 for the conversion kit (no gun) this was a stunt to get their name out there to advertise their other tacticool conversion kits and rifles. So I doubt they are planning on fighting Lego to keep their product available.

Let us play with our toys MOM!The Block 19 "to be a welcome and a gesture of friendship and inclusion," especially for gun owners who eschew "tactical pants" and "bravado."

"It seems that no matter what we create in the firearms industry anti gunners seem to leverage every *true* innovation (block19 is NOT an innovation it is a fun safe queen) shortly after its release to talk about why guns are bad," Culper said

Look gais, we just made a lego skin for those kids not into the tough tactical look, stop trying to ruin our playtime! So long as they pay us first it’s totally not our responsibility if morons kills themselves or others with our light hearted fun.
