Schtuff Hits the Fan Rifle

This isn't what you think. I thought this site was kind of funny. I'm not sure who posted it, or who the author is, but it pretty much sums up a lot of gun conversations.

I think I just received a summary of every gun-related argument I've ever been conned in to by the local mall ninja/self-proclaimed 'expert'/diehard fanatic of one particular platform and/or cartridge. Hilarious.

Didn't Marko Kloos write some (or most) of that stuff? Or something very similar, IIRC reading his blog...

But funny and well written none the less (whoever authored it)

And it's all true!

Except of course, for the bad stuff about the M14...

Absolutely hilarious, with more than a touch of truth.

Gotta love it when every ox gets gored.

this one about made me fall out of my chair. "but as Jeff Cooper says about the .32, if your shoot someone with one, and they notice, they’ll probably get mad." You gotta love a well written gun sterotype page like that.

If it results in less demand for Enfield #4s and#5s, all the better for so many of us.

The only thing that made me laugh even more is some of the old writing by the famous "Gecko 45" and other mall ninjas who either are Rapid Tactical Force, or are in training. Some are also masters of three martial arts.
