I found out the other day that my great-grandfather's old, wore out Stevens 311 (which my grandfather passed down to me a few years back) was literally the last gun sold through any kind of shop or store in the whole of Port Arthur, Texas from 1940 to the end of 1945


At some point, my father and I are going to have it and my grandfather's 16 Ga. Winchester Model 12 restored by Briley Manufacturing

HOLY COW! My Big Sister, Mom, and Girlfriend made me a shadow box with all my trinkets in it. I hate to think how much this cost.

And I mean, they got everything. 48th Bde patch, ISAF patch, DUIs, all ten medals, my two ribbons, shooting iron, CAB, rank pins, the works.

Im thinking i may want to get my ffl eventually. Not really to run a full shop but to bank some money on transfers. Possibly do orders from people on the online distributors like davidsons. There i could supplement income without fronting the money to put guns on the shelves.

So one of my fellow admins on the Call of Duty wiki claimed it was OK that we were incorrectly referring to the CH-46 Sea Knight in Black Ops and Black Ops II as a CH-47 Chinook because, and I quote, "The CH-46 Sea Knight was not used in war until the 2006 Iraq War, the CH-47 Chinook however was used for Vietnam and onwards, as such the helicopters in Black Ops (Set during the Vietnam war and onwards) would be the Chinook."

I think Medal of Honor recipient Raymond M. Clausen, Jr., who got it by repeatedly running out of a Sea Knight into a minefield in Vietnam to rescue wounded Marines, is spinning in his grave right now. Plus that doesn't hold water when you consider we're apparently doing that for a game set after it was "first used in war".

*headdesk*

EDIT: After being called on this his argument has changed to, in order: "The CH-47 was the main helicopter of the Vietnam era" (Apparently the Huey doesn't exist anymore), "The CH-47 is a cargo carrier and the CH-46 isn't", since apparently the fact the Sea Knight gets used for VERTREP doesn't count, and "The CH-47 can carry more", which is stupid since in game it's not shown carrying anything bigger than a small crate.

You expect way too much out of the average CoD fan.

I remeber getting lectured by a Fraternity Brother over how a fully automatic FAL/G3/M-14 was un-possible.

"They're battle rifles. They can't be full auto/ Then they would be assualt rifles."

If you'll excuse me I need to go build a wall to bash my head against.
