Do they know something we don't know?

Well.... They do provide security for all of their launch, research and science-y facilities....

Space travel is dangerous. Probably to force the astronouts at the barrel of a gun into the space ships make sure they don't turn round with second thoughts.

Ha!

Sounds like a good idea


Just thought they are a little bit late, the Russians armed their cosmonauts before (no idea about now) in case of crash/failed landing in the wild.

To be honest the first thought was Aliens and giving NASA staff a first line of defence against them when entering secret compounds

It makes no sense. Obviously if we meet any extraterrestrials they would be so much more advanced our weapons will be useless.

"We are the best kept secret in the universe. Our mission is to monitor extra-terrestrial activity on Earth. We are your best, last, and only line of defence. We work in secret, we exist in shadow, and we dress in black."

I thought the MIB had our backs.

You mean like "Guns do not work in the vacuum of space" type nonsense?

Well, they work but the kickbacks going to be an issue, better be tethered to something.

Could actually shoot yourself in the back of the head if you think about it.

Ah, but that would only be possible with a "Globe" Earth but us nut jobs know that it's flat.

NASA canny make the moon any longer so im not imagining these lightweight semi-autos are for deep space.

As to the Moon, could shoot yourself in the back of the head up there also if you climbed to a high enough peek.

Earths not flat, but she might be hollow, to a fashion, not with a Sun in the middle, but with vast cavern systems the size of countries that still are to be discovered.

Yes. The TP-82 was a neat little package for what it was intended to do.

Yes, I could go with vast caverns but not bonkers hollow earth stuff.

Coincidentally, just watched Iron Sky 2 which had a lot of hollow Earth stuff. Will have to watch it again just to try to make sense of it. If that's possible, it really is that bonkers.

Same reason as schools in LA buying military surplus M16AR15, for internal and perimiter security. Lots of valuable stff sitting around just waiting to be stolen, and lots of weirdoes tryiong to get in to look for hangers full of flying saucers.

Why does everyone think that they would be more advanced than us?

If that's the product they need, I suggest they contact Henry and inquire about a custom version of the ar7.

Yes, that right I said AR7 a survival rifle originally designed and made for the Air Force, and it has come quite a long ways since it origins.

These new Henry survival rifles have made huge improvements over the originals and even now, I swear by the one I have owned for years.

Otherwise, a Ruger 10/22 rifle takedown with magpul X-22backpacker upgrade is another suggestion I would advise. Both are good choices, and depending on personal preference, should be enough for any one, even NASA.
