Why? Why not just an AR-15 modified... Cool factor?

No offense to you gsellis, I'm speaking in general, but this is something that always bothers me. Be it hypocritical or not, owning guns because they are "cool" or "manly" is a real problem IMO. Reading some of the comments on the desert eagle videos on youtube make me really sad for humanity. The really funny (read sad) is a sizable portion of DE sales are fueled by FPS gamers.
Link? I do not buy that for a minute.

One nice feature of the 416 is its gas piston, but you can find this on an AR-18 as well. Also, I seriously doubt desert eagle sales are fueled by gamers. Desert eagles are expensive and impractical.
That was wrong of me to say that. While I do know at least a few people that I could decisively link FPS games to their purchase of a DE or other guns. I just meant it as a general reference to the cool factor of media exploitation. That gun is pretty much entirely bought out of impractical reasons.

I have to add, one of those people who also bought the DE, also bought an M1 Garand out of his exposure to MoH. Great gun. I just held it, I never fired it though. I'd love to see the clips spring out.

Anyone know where I can buy a rocket propelled grenade launcher and grenades? If I have one of those, then I would finally feel safe in my home.

ARs are actually legal in CA as long as you follow some stupid ass rules (must be offlist, no pistol grip if you use regular mags, etc.)

The $75 was for the sex. She gave me the rifle for free.

I hope your joking. Not every gun owner is a depressed psychopath with a death wish.

^^

that's worth a vacation?
Are you that sensitive?
Are that much of an idiot to come into a thread that specifically said to stay out if you didn't like the content and have to post your idiotic drivel?

Actually do your homework and you'll see that guns are used in legal defense of people far more often than they are used by people going on "shooting sprees".

You can get shorter according to federal regulations, but state legislation may prevent you from doing so.

Process to get one is essentially the same as getting a machine gun or suppressor. The only difference being cost...
