Aw, it looks like Swamp People won't be filming in Fannett; they just sent a pair of guys from Fannett (one of which, Harlan "Bigfoot" Hatcher, is a friend of my father's) up to Louisiana

I believe I have just seen the most stupidly tacticool thing ever.

To get you through the one minute of OPERATOR OPERATOR at the start, it's an ad for this:

Because, you know, the military has a lot of uses for square .22LR pistols.

Also saw this, a real-life Frankengun:

Which I imagine is the happiest Sten there ever was.

Fuuuuuck, I cut a big chunk of skin out of my left thumb on accident. Not deep enough to draw blood, but it looks messed up.

I've already gotten to handle one and not only is it a Square pistol but it's unreliable, unsafe and the best way to shoot it is with your left hand, pulling the trigger with your middle finger. The guy who handed it to me acted like a DI handing the training platoon clutz his first live grenade.

Yeah, it's almost like the human hand isn't that shape or something. Maybe it plugs into the end of your Tier 1 operator cyborg battle-arm. :rolleyes:

edit: oh it gets better

Didn't you always want a totally unergonmic fake bullpup stock with a "secret storage compartment" so your .22 LR lego brick needs an SBR license?

edit 2: hahaha they trademarked the word operator what is wrong with these people

Put a .22 pistol under your .22 rifle. All the operators are doing it.

In other news, in this month's "American Rifleman", there was an article about the M-1895 Colt MGs used by the Rough Riders. Come to find out, one of them was purchased by the big sister of one of the volunteers from New York. Obviously, they were from a prominent family.

I'm severly tempted to highlight that portion of the article and tape it to my sister's mirror.

I think that's the only two handed firearm I've seen where you pull the trigger with your front hand.
Or, I guess that thing behind it is a place for your off(?) hand. This thing is confusing. Aliens are trying to sell us their guns for some reason.
