    So anyone got any preferences on the new rake of PDWs being produced? It seems like the military contractors are actually starting to think instead of just revamping last decades model again.

    Oddly, having brushed up on my "current affairs" with firearms, it looks like the country who probably loves the gun the best (USA) are going to be the last ones to update their military. I'm wondering if the M16 has reached the same status as the Ford Mustang and similar... one of those designs that no one will accept can be improved upon.

    I love guns, a trait i caught on by my fascination with the army which began more then 3 years ago, and this fascination was a product of my imagination and glorification of armies of various ages. It's the very idea of how powerfull and destructive a simple contrapation born out of a simple invention like rifling is as much reason as the externals to me, a single object of a few grams projected from a barrel can penetrate and destroy/tear tissue,and kill almost everything in the animalia kingdom if not all, now that to me is fascinating. Had i been an Idea person (NT/NTJ), i would have definitly tried my luck with the fire-arms designing and armaments industry.

    Don't sell yourself short. NT's might be the "idea men" but SPs are the craftsmen. Take Kalashnikov for example, who could easily be an SP. He didn't invent a new weapon from scratch. He borrowed the "assault rifle" idea from the Germans, and then decided to use a loose bolt to improve the gun's durability. And AK-47 is considered one of the best weapons created.

    He is a genius. He basically took ideas from all sorts of other weapons, and combined them into the AK-47, making an incredible weapon. (Lots of his own invention there as well of course) It's still damn good actually, incredibly durable, possibly THE cheapest rifle around, and an infinite supply. (Roughly 75 million produced to date according to wikipedia...more than all other assault rifles combined.). Oh, and it's still accurate enough, and packs a nice punch.

    I was pretty anti-gun prior to hooking up with my ex.

    I think shooting targets is fun!!!



    Although, admittedly, I prefer shooting with the .22 rifle over anything else.

    Eh, I still shoot a .22 break-barrel pellet rifle often, even though I have bigger and better weapons now.
