No one has knocked on my door, no one has called my home phone, nothing was received in the mail.
And frankly, I won't do it until they force my hand.
But what the fuck does this have to do with guns?
Can they stop you from reregistering your passport?
Anyway, back to topic.
Gentlemen, behold. The KS-23/TOZ-123
4 gauge riot shotgun made from sub-par anti aircraft barrels and originally used for quelling riots in Russian prisons. Do want.
I'm probably late on this, but recently YouTube started recommending videos to me about the GyroJet. Really fascinating stuff.
Shame it sounds like they really sucked outside of possible space combat.
a gyroget rocket is like $120 a piece
He just shot off $240 worth of ammunition, imagine the fun he could have had if he put that into .22LR
I think if they expanded upon the gyrojet that it could be successful today. If they did something like the 40k bolter where as they have a primary charge that gets it out of the barrel at a decent velocity , and a secondary rocket that propels it even faster, it could work much better than those old things. Just imagine a 50 BMG being fired and having the round continue to accelerate out to a mile as apposed to decelerate once out of the barrel.
If it ever came to me having to go, I would do so willingly. I would more then likely just enlist if I wasn't already in the service.
If you ran away in your country's time of need you're just a coward in my eyes. Men and women do what they would ask of us daily, on their own free will.
I'm just planning on national guard then I hopefully get left alone 'cep for human aid stuff.
Unless our country is directly attacked and invaded, I will oppose the draft. If we have another proxy war like Vietnam and the draft is implemented then I guess I will pack my bags.
made from anti-aircraft barrels?
Take my money. Take all of it.
And it is not 'your country'. And seriously, fighting for "human rights and liberty"? What did you do, swallow that cold war propaganda bullshit whole?
I have nothing but respect for our armed forces. What they do I respect. It's how the government uses them that I do not.
However that is not a life I wish to lead nor is it a life I am GOING to lead. If the government gives me no other options I will run, yes. I don't see that as cowardice. I see it as self preservation. Just because some jackass in the capitol has decided I should pick up a gun and shoot someone else doesn't mean I SHOULD or WILL.
confident of one's own righteousness, especially when smugly moralistic and intolerant of the opinions and behavior of others.
You saying something as retarded as "Don't want to fight for human rights and liberty? Get the fuck out of my country. We don't want you here." is as "smugly moralistic and intolerant of the opinions and behavior of others" as you can get.
Just because I don't wish to lead the life of a Soldier, and would prefer NOT be FORCED into it, does not make me a "Selfish draft dodging hippie" nor does it make me any less of a person than you OR someone who is 'ungrateful of people who manned up and fought when called upon'
The last fucking war we fought that actually prevented some really bad shit from happening to OUR COUNTRY was WWII. Since then all of the wars we have fought we were in no direct danger from anyone or anything.
The last "Large scale war" we had was world war fucking two. Everything else has been proxy wars or bullshit incursions like the shit in the middle east.
If something like another WWII happened I would fight. I sure as fuck wouldn't be a soldier I'd be a better medic or combat engineer. But I'd fight.
If there was a draft for some BS war like Vietnam or Korea or this shit in the middle east, fuck that.
At any rate, I like this country. It ain't perfect and it can be a shit stain at times... but I ain't starving, I ain't wanting for anything pertinent to life. So why not go when this place calls for me... hell even if I hated this place I would do it for the people I know and the guys who are fighting with me.
That CO thing looks good though. I wouldn't mind doing civilian service type shit I just don't want to be in the thick of an actual war.
