Well if we're being honest, one of the draws to the "AR-15" market is how they look like the guns in Call of Duty. And if you're going to use one for legitimate hunting purposes (not just to HAVE and plink targets with... maybe one day shoot your wife with it... or she shoots you with it... that got dark, wtf) they make several that look a little less menacing. And even those can start looking menacing once you start adding the accessories, forward grips, range finders, optics, etc. But they're functionally almost the same as a Remington Woodsmaster. IF they do outlaw "AR platform" rifles, hopefully they'll forget to include rifles like the Remington Woodsmaster. Remington makes several VTR variations (varmint tactical rifle, usually smaller cal: 22LR & 223) which have classic M16 style stocks, and makes them look more "family friendly".

And if they outlaw AR rifles, I gotta think they'd probably also outlaw AR platform shotguns as well, right? You hear less about them because... I dunno, maybe people are using bullets more for their murderin' and killin'. Same principle though. It's simply an semi-auto/autoloader on a frame for extensive customization. And that's the shame if it has to go away. Hunters like how you can upgrade and customize them for different seasons and different game. (Personally, I don't much care, I prefer old school bolt action in larger caliber - one shot and done)

Not the kind of thing I typically post, but... it's interesting.

Every hardcore Lefty I see on social media:

Edit: send to other thread of you want, my bad.


How far up one's own ass does ones head have to be to no longer be able to recognize that while they can identify the shortcomings of capitalism, they completely ignore the lengthy track record of communisms many MORE shortcomings. China is the wealthiest communist country currently. Is their healthcare system what anyone could call "ideal"? They are wealthy because they fleece their workers and underpay them. Are these people willing to take a 70%+ pay cut to mirror their heroes in China? The Communist Soviet Union subsidized all sorts of things and it did not stop the collapse of the Soviet Union. An even more applicable comparison: East and West Germany post-WW2. On which side of the wall would anyone rather have lived? *drops mic*

 :ohlord: You sell these people one Che Guevara shirt, and suddenly they're experts on economics and politics.

Aw.  :D That's so mean.

Was that on facebook or twitter? I'd love to see the feminazi's respond to that one.

Stock up on 30rd AR mags while you still can. Another couple of mass shootings and a Democrat president with a hard-on for hating the NRA and they'll permanently ban them.

What's better than 30rds? SIXTY!

I'm BEHIND the bump stock ban. That shit should've been common sense from day 1. It effectively makes a semi-auto behave like a full auto. Internally in an automatic machine gun, it's the same kind of process making it do that. And no one who isn't going into an active theater of war has a legitimate legal need for something like that.

But the clip size stink they wanna raise now... uh uh. I don't see the point. Unless you outlaw ALL semi-auto weapons, clip size is largely an irrelevant thing. Someone can still fabricate an extended clip from items scavenged from a yard sale.

All in all, I just wanna say fuck the Democrats, because it's my GOD GIVEN RIGHT by holy decree from Thomas Jefferson himself to murder people with firearms if I want to. 8)

Holy shit. It's occurred me... and should to everyone else as well.... that This is probably just about the ONLY messageboard on the entire internet where I could say that and I wouldn't get mobbed to death or banned immediately. This is why I keep coming back. :thumbsup:

My ma just called and said she read online that if you run out of toilet paper, just spray some Pam in your asshole and the shit won't stick to your cheeks. :D

Damn, didn't know he was 4 months old, thought you were talking about a toddler or 5 yr old. Can't imagine how awful that'd be having to sit and watch that happen while doctors are like, "Eh, you don't need help, just sit tight." :frustration:

Was looking back through my bookmarks. I'd been following the coronavirus news for maybe a week or so before I finally started bookmarking stuff on Jan 23:


Perhaps interesting to recall what CNN thought was important as of January 30:

Ah yes, I remember that, the picture with Paul Rudd. :D

We're all gonna die. But if we die with a bunch of minorities and women around who are dying too, that'll be... better? Right? We'll FEEL better about dying. If I've heard one complaint over and over again, it's how people wish death was just more inclusive. ::)

Haha! I wasn't seriously suggesting you do that though, lol.

PSA from the Focalor Foundation, Inc: Never buy unlicensed firearms, kids. (Unless they're cheap) :shifteyes:

If the shit hits the proverbial fan, I've got some decent little tools to repel the barbarians from the gate. But for home protection I have a dirt cheap little family heirloom Springfield single shot 12 ga. Dunno how old it is, it was my dads. Not sure if he got it from his dad or if my grandpa got it from my great grandpa or what. It's got a fairly long barrel though, so it's a "Get off my lawn" gun, not a "get outta my house" gun. If they're IN the house, I have a Taurus Judge loaded with 410 0000 buckshot, which is like 3 or 4 ball slugs per shell. One of those hits you center mass and you're DONE. Probably not immediately though. I imagine those last 30 seconds would be pretty awful. :D

Emperor is a Turkish company. Made in Turkey. Because of that, it's cheap, not designed quite as well as other brands, but it goes bang when you pull the trigger as advertised. But it's a shotgun. Unless you're making it with chinese potmetal instead of steel, it's gonna do what it's supposed to.

They have some nice pistol grip M&P style shotguns. Never actually shot one, but from what I've seen of them, the pump looks like a kinda shitty design that functionally hides the probably lower quality moving parts.

You see? Everybody is going fucking crazy, preparing for some kind of post-apocalyptic thunderdome shit to spark off. Now isn't the time to be heading to the sporting goods store or pawn shop to buy a shotgun. Now is the time to give "Pill-head Bill" a call and buy one of those full auto Mac 11's or MP5's with the serial numbers filed off so you can have the advantage when protecting yourself from all the assholes that bought all the SEMI-automatics. :D

Coronavirus Rhapsody

Is this a sore throat?
Is this just allergies?
Caught in a lockdown
No escape from reality.

Don’t touch your eyes
Just hand sanitize quicklyyyyy
I’m just a poor boy, no job security
Because of easy spread, even though
washed your hands, laying low
I look out the window, the curve doesn’t look flatter to me, to me

mama, i just killed a man
didn’t stay inside in bed
walked by him and now he’s dead
mama, life was so much fun
but now I’ve caught this unforgiving plague

mama, oooooh
didn’t mean to make them die
if I’m not back to work this time tomorrow
carry on, carry on as if people didn’t matter

Too late, my time has come
sends shivers down my spine
body’s aching all the time
goodbye everybody, I’ve got the flu
gotta leave you all behind and face the truth

mama, oooooh
I don’t wanna die
I sometimes wish I never went out at all

I see a little silhouette of a man
what a douche, what a douche
did he even wash his hands though
security is tightening
very very frightening me
Gotta lay low (gotta lay low)
Gotta lay low (gotta lay low)
Gotta lay low masturbate
Masturbate O O O O

I’m just a poor boy, facing mortality
spare him his life from this monstrosity

Touch your face, wash your hands, will you wash your hands?

WASH YOUR HANDS! (never, never, never wash your hands oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)
No no no no no
Oh mama mia, mia (mama mia wash your hands!)
COVID-19 has a sickness put aside for me, for me

So you think you can stop me and just shake my hand?
So you think we can hang out and not break our plans?
Oh baby, can’t do this with me, baby,
Just gotta stay home, just gotta stay home with my fever


Curving can get flatter
Anyone can see
Curving can get flatter
Curving can get flatter, you’ll see

Just look out your windows….

As for Synapse and Razer... I dunno if the new Synapse recognizes the 2013 mouse. The new Synapse has the same settings for mouse lights, light breathing, blinking speed, all the shit the old one did. But it also has some kinda extra stuff that helps control backlighting on displays and lighting on keyboards/peripherals... or something like that, I didn't look too closely at it. But it definitely installs some extra shit that records your internet browsing. There's really no reason to register an acct with Synapse though because it gives you the option to use it as a "guest" which will still allow you to tweak the mouse lighting settings and the sensitivity and progressive acceleration settings, which I think is another new addition from the last version (useless for my purposes). I haven't looked into deleting whatever the browser shit is. I have Synapse and all related shit closed, and it uses the same settings regardless of synapse being up and running. It DOES start it up again if you restart your machine though. I leave mine up 24/7. So at some point I gotta set it all to NOT start on startup or just delete it all.

For some reason, some flu-like but non-flu thing went around HARD AS FUCK this year. I think it was about October that I had gotten into some heavy poison ivy and had a SEVERE breakout from it (I've become extremely hypersensitive in recent years). They put me on antibiotics and steroids to get over it, and it worked almost immediately. But after I ran out of steroids, my immune system crashed and I got whatever was going around REALLY BAD. I probably had pneumonia for a month or so, and thought I was possibly showing signs of lung cancer. Took forever to get over it, way longer than a typical flu or cold (2-3 months total).

So maybe he's one of us who got that stuff. If he doesn't have a fever though, probably nothing to be seriously worried about. If it were covid19, the fever is the thing you worry about. If it's just this seasons super-cold though... Oh you'll be getting it from him soon enough. Be prepared to feel like someone pushed you out of a pickup truck at 50 mph. ;)
