They also help you avoid FOIA requests and cause your enemies to spontaneously commit suicide via multiple gunshots to the back of the noggin.

The diaper style is old school. They have new and improved color versions with better silencing technology.


Those look like they're armor piercing.


Its called The Penetrator. It is made of hardened steel, tungsten, or tungsten carbide.

So that's why they call you Mr. Cesium.


The softest metal is Cesium, which is so soft it can be cut with a butter knife

I think over 40 firearms have been recovered at this point, 23 in the hotel room alone. Yet the shooter only used 1 gun for the massacre than immediately killed himself.

He bought these weapons in a mad dash over a short period of time as well. People are suspecting that this was done solely to push gun control laws.

It certainly seems that way. This apolitical, non-religious "normal guy" is the perfect patsy. There is no overarching ideology to take the focus off of the inanimate objects - since people are programmed to find deeper meaning in every event, especially the tragic ones.

I sincerely hope this isn't a F/F, as yet again more Americans lost their lives for nothing. If there is a conspiracy here, the architects are killing people for the sake of killing - they will never succeed in disarming the populous.

They can, however, take their Bolshevik revolution and unkindly place it where the sun typically doesn't shine. IF this isn't some type of conspiracy (very possible, who knows), then a bunch of our fellow citizens lost their lives. It is our job, as surviving Americans, to ensure that our way of life and Constitution is upheld to defend their memory.

I also believe this will have no impact on the hearing protection act. Although I already own several suppressors, the thought of being able to purchase them without bribing the government (forking over $200.00 a pop) is reassuring. After all, paying money to do something that is otherwise illegal is certainly not ethical on their behalf.

The people, in general. Items like the NFA and Gun Control Act are wholly unconstitutional, as they "infringe" on a regular American's "right to keep and bear arms." The second amendment doesn't say anything about "sporting purposes" or "automatic vs semi-automatic vs giant laser."

Technically, any unconstitutional law is no law at all. Then again, the Government happily accepts your $200.00 bribe in exchange for its permission to otherwise violate this nonsensical set of laws. Basically, it prohibits an individual who is not even suspected of engaging in felonious activity from bearing firearms - unless you wish to jump through their hoops.

For instance, the RDIAS I purchased cost nearly $20,000.00. The only benefit to this is that I can easily swap it from firearm to firearm, since the RDIAS itself is the serialized NFA "machine gun." Additionally, if the trip face happens to snap or get damaged, I can legally replace that part since the drop-in sear's body is the serialized component. It should be noted that an RDIAS costs ~0.10 cents to manufacture, so the mark-up on these are disgusting. That's not counting the insane tax I had to pay BATFE.

EDIT: Here is a link to a picture of the ~$20k component. You'll see why such laws have made these prices absolutely ridiculous. Oh well, at least it allows us to donate more to the gun industry & gun people than taxes to BATFE. LINK: RDIAS @ hunt101.com

NOTE: This is not my RDIAS, simply a photo I found on the Internet depicting their usual design. In addition, a standard AR-15 lower will not work with this (unlike the "lightning links"). You will still need an M-16 fire control group, which is legal to purchase and install on any rifle.

For the record, Clinton is way out of line on this one.

It wasn't the appropriate time, venue or message on the topic.

And yes, the cracking sound you hear is hell freezing over.





Star from me for the honest hell freezing over part.

Same here

It happens to all of us sometimes
Politicking can certainly be messy at times, given the intensity of the debate in this country. As long as it stays as just debate, I think there's a decent chance we get through this cultural crisis as both a unified, strong and prosperous nation.

(CNN)Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, amid the fallout of the massacre in Las Vegas, turned the political spotlight on a gun bill that's currently making its way through the House. "The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots. Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get," she tweeted Monday morning. She wrote later, "Our grief isn't enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again."

www.cnn.com...

Is this in any way connected? I hate to jump immediately into conspiracy mode, but when something like this happens, I seem to always think, "What are the political ramifications of this?"

A lot of gun people have no idea what any of this stuff really is. Even in one of the vids you hear a woman say it was an AR..What's an AR says cabbie "Automatic Rifle" she replies...and here I thought Stoner called it an Armalite rifle.

My hippy sister still thinks you can get a full auto AR15 at a gun show with no background check because of that pesky loophole ...
There is currently a bill being discussed about this very subject. Until this event, a good example of why suppressors would be dangerous didn't really exist. Of course it would make me sick to "know" that our leaders would kill innocents just to advance their policy, but being a member of this site, to ignore that would be wrong.

I fully admit I have not seen any footage, or even heard any audio of this event, on purpose. But the timing is suspect IMHO.
I really hope that is nothing more than a poor thought and some fleeting paranoia. But I feel better having said it.


www.politico.com...


She's an idiot basically.

It's a SUPPRESSOR, not a silencer. And no, it would not have caused more deaths. Because of the inherent issues with adding a SUPPRESSOR to an automatic weapon it would likely have resulted in a catastrophic failure of the rifle and caused less deaths. A SUPPRESSOR would have overheated because of the number of rounds going through it, melted or fallen apart, causing the next round to impact the barrel/SUPPRESSOR and exploding. Typically this results in a nasty injury to the shooter as well.

Suppressors are only there to contain sound of the ignition of the gunpowder to protect the shooters ears when used with a high velocity rifle round. Unless hand pressed for sub sonic speeds, the round makes a super sonic crack upon leaving the barrel.

Politicians really need to shut up until they can educate themselves on these matters.


People think the stuff they see on TV is real. A Full auto laser guided nuke round can be totally silenced. a mall ninjas dream
