    Make sure to hold it sideways when you shoot, so you look gangsta. :mamoru:

    Treat every weapon as if it was loaded, do not point your weapon at anything you are not willing to destroy, always keep your finger OFF the trigger until you are ready to fire, and always know what is beyond your target.

    Keep your finger off the damn trigger until you are ready to shoot!

    I've seen so many people at the range talking with the gun pointed to the side with their finger on the trigger or shooting the ceiling.

    Judging by how many of the gun crew's members own those .50 cal rifles I'd say that last rule is ignored a bit.

    I don't mean for this to sound like an attack but what do you need those things for? Won't they hit a target over two miles away? That's a sniper rifle!

    I'm trying to think of any other hobby/sport/pasttime that gets questioned as much as ours... I can't really think of any.

    I think my dad is nuts for buying a $600 fly rod, but I sure as hell don't tell him "what do you need that for?!"

    So is any good bolt action rifle with a scope in the hands of a marksman.

    Just look at Oswald. Bought an imported Italian carcano with a Japanese scope and mount for $12 and made one of the most famous shots ever.

    I consider the #1 rule to be:
    Never point the weapon at something you're not willing to kill.




    What if I feel like shooting something two miles away? And a "sniper rifle" is ANY rifle that is used for sniping by a sniper. Caliber or accessories don't make a sniper rifle, the hands on the gun do.

    I'm not sure that thats actually an accurate assessment of the practical accuracy of the round. Either way, why do I have to show a need? And what if my need is to hit things 2 miles away?

    You do realize that we're not drooling morons and just because a bullet might keep traveling for a long distance we don't setup out targets in front of playgrounds right? There are backstops at the end of ranges.

    This is the most retarded, un-American thing I've heard in a while. Take your gun control ideas and theories to a country that gives a shit...like the UK

    Did you see the tv documentary showing that the bullet did not really travel upwards and then downward as if by some magic, but that JFK's arm was propped up on the side of the car door, shifting the shirt to a different position and that the orignal wound marking on the mortuary report was wrong.

    They also showed that after a certain amount of travel through a material such as ballistis gel the carcano round, in fact they were using some ammo from the same batch as Oswalds ammo came from, curves after it loses velocity.

    Yeah. They set up everything perfectly how it was that day. They found the exact positioning on the governor and jfk were. And the shot lined up pretty good.

    I didn't mean to start a flame war. I promise it wasn't a troll attempt. What I should say is that a purpose-built drag car might make no sense to some but at least there are dragstrips to flex what you've built.

    In the case of .50 cal rifles there's really no way to show what you really have. I'm sure once I get bit by the gun bug I'll be saving the 3grand or whatever for one but right now I don't understand why civilians would 'need' one.

    It's called insurance. I'll probably never need a fire extinguisher but I have one. I'll probably never need a cabinet full of canned food but I keep it stocked. If the government ever decides to overstep it's bounds to the point where the average citizen realizes it then we'll have something to fight back with. If that ever happens, I for one want the biggest fucking gun I can get my hands on. Even if the govt NEVER oversteps it's bounds remember this. Admiral Yamamoto said it best when he was asked to invade the US during WW 2. "We cannot invade the US. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass." I'm sure he wasn't talking about .22s when he said that :mamoru:.
