Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. Well, there’s another dimension to the caliber wars I’d never considered…

  2. Why would the rifle not be tucked into your shoulder in the first place? I can’t see how that wouldn’t have the rifle angled inward toward her head.

  3. I was drafted into the German guard battalion (don’t ask why they drafted a trained gunsmith into a military formation without live firearms… bureaucracy) in 2010 and there where no women at this time in the Wachbataillon because they could not do the drills because their breasts got in the way and the abrupt nature of some drills was a major risk for breast cancer.

    Afaik they now allow women in the battalion but they removed many of the drills so the women could feel included.

    In other news: the bent barrel Galil was a satirical piece and is not a real gun fielded by the IDF. But it WAS build by Yisrail Galil, the inventor of the Galil rifle 😀

    1. @tiredWeasel: I figured that it wasn’t a legit rifle. Nice to know that the man made it, though.

    1. @b-zh: I was surprised at the result.

      Also, you reminded me while I unsubbed from DR. It’s like a 5-year old trying to tell you something. He goes on and on and on and eventually gets to the crux of the story. Add to the near-constantly moving camera and I’m outtahere. 😉
