    interested? yes. that one looks pretty good but I am not that much of a fan of SBRs, the feel of it just seems a bit too uncomfortable, I would LOVE to try one out , that might change my mind.

    If I don't have a use for a gun I'm not interested in it. That one looks pretty useless for anything but close quarters combat and I don't do that much around the house. I will admit a fondness for accuracy over long distance. Though I never hunt anymore it's still nice to know I could put the fear of God in those grape stealing squirrels if I had a mind to.

    not sure why but that gave me a good chuckle.

    I mean yeah I have 2 teenagers at home during isolation, but I'm not sure I would go so far as to use a gun on them.

    Good lord, why would you take one home with you?

    Clearly the best use of gun technology is a highly accurate simulation to gun down faceless video game mobs gone aggro in the most efficient and satisfyingly acoustic and somatosensory way. Buduh-buduh-buduh-blam.

    I love riding video game motorcycles too, but they are much too dangerous for humans to have around, with statistics to show for it, and have no business existing in real life. But even if I'm going to ride one in a video game, I want to ride a Triumph and not some ungainly Harley.

    Same way I think about guns. I'd much prefer to pop off that SBR I posted a video of in a game than whatever granny crank gun you guys would tolerate. Realism matters yo.

    Also, guns don't sound nearly as satisfying in real life.

    Sound is part of the visceral experience, but I wouldn't put too much stock in it.
    All the more reason for the simulated version.
    (Edit: When I was target shooting, it was a .22 rifle. Just the right amount of pop.)

    If it were up to me, personal guns would be mostly confined to ranges (and police and military of course). I've appreciated how Japan regulates them though. it's hard to get a gun, you have to jump through a lot of hoops, but they're still technically legal if you're persistent, and gun violence is next to zero. I'm generally libertarian enough to allow freedom for activities if the state can prevent harm from them in less restrictive ways than total bans, if it's real prevention at a virtually total level.

    Since Tocky was kind of asking, the Scorpion was originally made for police, something easy to carry and have on you at all times while you're doing other things, allows for fast reaction for surprises in close quarters and urban and residential areas, just shoot in a quick arc, easy maintenance. Those things make it good for corridor FPS surprise mobs too.

    Every man should have the right to own a gun.
    Every man should have the right to shoot someone.

    Film stars and farmers still forcing opinions.
    Like TV politicians playing cowboys and Indians.
    Uncle Sam sleeps with his horse, keeps his brain in his hat.
    With his trigger-happy patter, he'll rat-a-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat.

    Ride into the sun the damage is done.

    Oh god yeah. Or if there's not an old school Bonneville available, I'd take a 60's Honda.

    I had a Honda Dream in high school. I had a Honda Shadow after I left service. But I still liked my Harley FLH better than any bike I've ridden. It was heavy and had a large turning radius but the speed and torque made up for it. I stuck it in mud and powered it out, I skidded on pea gravel till the pipe sparked, I put it on the double stand and fucked on it. I've ridden other Harleys but none so low that I had that level of confidence. It was a bull by the horns but I had the bravado of youth to make it mind. I would like that again but I'm no longer young and worry I could no longer take command like that again. That troubles me. I like to think I could with practice.

    disagree with the exception of silencers, I do wish they sounded like in the movies.

    Satisfying if you like early hearing loss.

    Just stopping by to say how much I like guns and all the mayhem that goes along with them.

    I'd like a pistol like Ed Harris has in Westworld - a LeMat revolver. 9 shot revolver + 1 under barrel shotgun shot. It's just quirky. If I lived in the US I think I'd have a few around the house for indoor emergency use.

    Not sure what I'd have as my long range. Something else quirky though I reckon, if legal. An SVT40 (extended mag of course) or a BAR M1918. Or maybe a Bren gun, but they are little heavy.
