First let me applaud you on your guts to insult someone over anon. It must be comforting to know that your spine is just as mushy as your brain.
Second…I see your reading abilities are quite low. I loathe Obama and would love to see him tried for treason (I’d say crimes against humanity, but the Hague takes too damn long to do anything). I hate Putin and Obama and I think I’ve made that quite clear.
Third I love that you months behind on the issues. While I would love for all the free/liberal nations of the world to band together storm into Moscow and hang fascists like Putin and his ilk (as we should have done in 1918 and 1945) we have much, much bigger issues than Russia right now…as you clearly know nothing, may I suggest you look up the term ISIS.
As to your statement “The US government has invaded more countries than Russia” You make treat all invasions as morally equivalent. In the last century every country the US invaded it was with the intent of spreading democracy and the natural rights that come with it (or at least protecting another nation’s rights)…in the last century every nation the Russia invaded has been with the intent of subjugating other nations into slavery. If you can’t see a difference there, then your understanding of ethics is just as flawed as everything else about you.
"Ukraine and Russia should settle their own conflict in a diplomatic & peaceful manner." That sounds nice, but the biggest hindrance to that idea is not the US or even Obama’s idiocy…rather it would be Putin’s fascist dictatorial tenancies.
"You’re just another conservative warmonger" The word is neocon. And may I point out that warmonger is often the term used by the allies of dictators to make end said tyrannies look wrong.
"who thinks Obama should take harsher against Russia."
No I think the US should elect a real leader the next time and let him or her deal with it, I have no faith that Obama could do anything but make things worse.
A grenade launcher? On my SKS? More likely than you think.
The characteristic but oft-ignored feature on Yugoslavian SKS’s is their 22mm muzzle device and accompanying gas system toggle/pop up ladder sight designed specifically for launching NATO-spec rifle grenades with blank 7.62X39mm cartridges.
Today, most Americans make due by shooting tennis balls in the grenade adapters or from home-made launching cups instead.
Okay so… Been thinking about getting a M203…
I’ve done some research into Destructive Devices as per NFA law. What I found out is interesting…
You CAN buy a grenade launcher as a civilian. There are 2 ways to do this:
- Buy directly from a Class 9 FFL dealer that sells complete GL’s. If you buy directly from a Class 9 FFL you fill out a Form 4 (A Form 4 requires a $200 check, 2 filled out forms , 2 fingerprint cards, 2 passport photos, and depending on where you live, a chief law enforcement officer’s signature stating he is allowing you to posses this device in your county/city of residence) just like you would a suppressor, AOW, transferrable Machine Guns, etc. Some Class 3 FFL’s already have GL’s in stock so if that’s the case you can skip the first part. If you do not live close to the FFL you purchased the GL from, you can have it sent to a Class 3 FFL that is near you via a tax free Form 3 and pay a transfer charge BEFORE you send off your Form 4. Buy it, they transfer it to a local Class 3 FFL, you send off your Form 4, wait, it gets approved and you have your new toy.
- The second option is that you buy a GL receiver meaning that the barrel has been removed. The BATFE classifies a GL in this state as a Title 1 firearm. But if you want to complete it you have to send in a Form 1 (A Form 1 requires a $200 check, 2 filled out forms , 2 fingerprint cards, 2 passport photos, and depending on where you live, a chief law enforcement officer’s signature stating he is allowing you to posses this device in your county/city of residence) which is saying you are building it as a DD. Once you purchase the receiver, most dealers will NOT transfer it until you send them a copy of your completed Form 1 that was sent back to you from the ATF. Once that is arranged, they will transfer it to your local Class 3 FFL and you pay the transfer fee. Once the receiver is in your possession, you can purchase the barrel. ATF rules require that you engrave your full name, city, and state which you live somewhere visible on the receiver per ATF font requirements.
All lethal ammunition used by 40mm GL’s are considered DD’s. Meaning that each round (only the brass is regulated) that needs to have a tax stamp for it. Most HE ammo is hard to come by and easily hundreds of dollars per round. 50 rounds x $500+/- plus $200 tax per round ($700 total) = $35,000. On top of the price you have to have appropriate facilities (a magazine) to house your ammunition as required by the ATF and local authorities. Most people buy a few rounds and reload their own ammo. Other prefer to save the money and shoot flares and chalk rounds. Any ammo shaped like a cone or that has a point on it, even if it’s considered Non-lethal, is still classified as a DD if being shot out of a 40mm GL.
Preban Colt M203’s are around $3,500-5,000 while LMT M203 replicas go for between $1,500-$2,000 depending on the configuration.
Hope this clears up some mysteries. Happy Operating.
I guess you have’t looked very hard, there are over 100K per year for you to pick from. They are quite a common thing in the US outnumbering firearms related homicides at least 10 to 1.
"The Beast of Omaha"
Heinrich Severloh was conscripted into the Germany Army at the age of 19. Two years later on D-Day he was a machine gunner tasked at defending Omaha Beach. This is where he supposedly earned the infamous nickname; in his memoir Severloh claimed to have injured or killed roughly 2,000 American soldiers who were trying to storm the beach.
Severloh recalls using his MG42 and a two Mauser K98’s; alternating between the 3 guns when one would run out of ammo or overheat. His fellow soldiers helping reload the empty guns while he used another. In all Severloh claims to have used 12,000 rounds for his MG42 and about 400 for the two K98’s. U.S and German historians have heavy doubts on his story. Severloh did meet with U.S soldier who was wounded on Omaha but survived; their reunion the basis for a documentary. (GRH)
