semi-auto

Test firing his newest build:

Royal-Nonesuch-ENDOLots of character in the look and design.  I like the concept.

It will be awesome once he increases the reliability.  I’m really glad to see he’s getting into more semi-autos now rather than sticking with the standard single shot stuff he has been doing since the jump.

I hope Royal Nonesuch is keeping all these guns he builds. I almost feel like I should make him an offer he can’t refuse on the whole lot of them so I could mount them in my office as art.

Thoughts?

Royal Nonesuch is making his first semi:

Royal-Nonesuch-ENDOWell this should be interesting.  I can’t wait to see the test fire.

3:48 – Mark Serbu sent him a trigger housing.  Alright so now we know Royal and Valerie are likely on good terms.  Were they even dating though? *thinking face emojii*  I don’t know… I need to hire you guys across the country to TMZ investigate this shit for me.  I suppose I could always just email Royal and ask him.  Speculation is far more fun though, plus Royal is a gentleman.

Meh:

“Dangerous” to who?  I think is the first question that needs to be answered.  Everyone who shot in the video, even the apparent “newbies” were obviously given instruction on how to stand properly and what to expect.  To say that an automatic firearm isn’t any more dangerous than a semi auto when it comes to controllability is just false, considering the barrage of bullets doesn’t let up while you’re finger is on the trigger of an automatic.  If you fall, get scared when the recoil hits etc… are all factors that could turn ugly quick for you or people in the general area, which wouldn’t happen nearly as easy with semi auto.  I don’t think automatic firearms should be effectively banned by the government (like they are), but I do think that another level of reasoning and instruction has to go into giving yours to someone to shoot, so terrible incidents like this 9 year old killing her instructor at the shooting range with an auto UZI can be avoided.  Because of everyone’s negligence and stupidity that little girl has to live with that now *smh*.

Come-And-Take-ItSide note, the regulation of automatic weapons was obviously originally meant to curb crime done with them.  So scumbags couldn’t dump hundreds if not thousands of rounds at the underarmed cops so easily.  I don’t normally like to side with gun legislation, but didn’t this law actually work?  I can’t even remember a shooting where the shooter had an auto, or even a illegally converted semi-auto.  Fill me in if my facts are wrong, or call me names if I just pointed out a gun law that actually worked and you hate me for it.  If any of your guys in Law Enforcement here are catching bad guys with autos, I’m curious to know that as well.

A new promo vid from TrackingPoint:

TrackingPoint-LogoSo awesome.  I’ve definitely talked about their semi-autos before this… but I thought this video was cool so there it is.

Automatic weapons are SOOOOOooo easy to buy says Don Lemon:

Assault-Rifle-Because-I-Am-BlackPffft it’s all semantics bro, he says.  I really don’t think that guy realized he was wrong, and the guy on the right had that grin and was nodding “yes” when Don Lemon was trying to school the middle guy.

This is bordering on “Shoulder Thing That Goes Up” epicness, but not quite as epic since it’s not like Don is a senator or anyone important.  This was the first time in my life I’ve ever seen that guy, so I googled him and turns out he’s a “journalist” (haha yea that makes perfect sense) and a CNN anchor (even more sense).

Thoughts?
