    Yeah, I surely admit I know nothing. Ha! Have no idea what an M16 does. Then, to qualify, I would say that any automatic weapon that outguns the police in fire power ought to fall into the category of "exceedingly dangerous."

    On a lighter note, since I can't copy from the site, while I was Googling, I found this little story:

    Police were called to the scene of a bank, robbery in progress. It was after hours and a shadowy figure was seen through the window. The bank was sealed off; three adjacent buildings were evacuated...the coppers used bullhorns and telephones to try to make contact with the intruder, and, finally, getting no response sent in a SWAT team. The team discovered a life-size cardboard figure inside. "It was not immediately clear if the cardboard figure was taken into custody or will be charged with a false alarm. No paper cuts were reported."

    Ya' just can't make this stuff up.

    Bank cardboard cutout spurs police standoff | Say What?
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    They're alright I suppose. I'm not overly fond of the .223 cartridge.... I mean, dammit, we're talking about WEAPONS, holy **** they're SUPPOSED to be dangerous!!!



    Dayum, y'all have got me so spun around I can't even remember whether I'm supposed to be arguing that a WEAPON is SUPPOSED to be dangerous... that's the frigging point in having one!!

    I would find a baseball bat dangerous in the hands of a madman.

    Hehe, I would of been very concerned if your response was, "No, weapons aren't dangerous."

    Well, it made me mad when the military adopted the 9 mm for handguns. You can't beat the old .45 for stopping power.

    Of course. Hollow points are good ammo. They are more likely to take down the BG with fewer shots, and are less likely to overpenetrate and endanger bystanders than standard FMJ.

    Tracers.... I never saw much point in them off the battle field, its not like they do extra damage or anything, but knock yo'sef out if that's yo thang.... they're fun to play with at night....

    Uh sorry, I understand weapons and can shoot full automatics whenever I want. I find them a waste of ammunition generally

    semi only versions of those were briefly on the US Market until Bush senior soiled his shorts and issued a mentally unsound executive order banning imports of such weapons--they weren't popular enough to engage in the machinations used to bring Soviet AKs, Bulgarian AKs etc (18 USC 922c compliance parts) into the USA

    I see them every once in a while at gun shows
