The German Clusterfuck: The Artillery Luger - 9mm Parabellum
The Luger. Probably one of the most iconic pistols ever made, as it was the flagship side arm for the Imperial German Army in World War 1, the Nazi German Army’s secondary side-arm during World War 2 and the sidearm for Neo-Nazis and mass shooters since. They’re accurate, very reliable if fed the correct ammo and overall really handy guns.
The Artillery Luger is here to fuck that all up.
The basic idea of the Artillery Luger was to give artillery troops a weapon that bridged the gap between a Luger pistol and a Kar98AZ carbine. The idea was to give it an 8 inch barrel, holster stock a la the Mauser C96 and the now famous 32 round Snail mag.
Problem was, it really was bad at both. the 8 inch barrel made it really heavy as a pistol, add the snail mag to the weight as well. And it’s lack of any realy way to hold the barrel made it pretty weak as a rifle, as you had to have either a really tight 2-handed grip or fire it 1 handed and look like a fool. Also the Snail Mag was and is a pain in the ass to load.
The Artillery Luger was a pretty big failure, and most Artillery soldiers opted for pistols while the Artillery Luger tended to float into the hands of offensive troops like Stormtroopers, who really only used it for it’s 32 round drum. Following the war, the Artillery Luger floated onto the used market, and serves as a great odd little gun, and if Hunter Thomson used it, you know it’s weird enough to be cool.
A Roanoke news station broadcast a heartwarming tribute on the one-year anniversary of the deaths of two journalists who were shot and killed on live TV.
On Aug. 26, 2015, WDBJ reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, were in the middle of a live news story in Virginia when they were shot multiple times by a former co-worker. Parker and Ward died at the scene.
On Friday, the WDBJ morning anchors paid tribute to Parker and Ward, sharing their sorrow followed by a string of silly and fun photos of the two.
“There’s been some healing, but there will never be complete healing,” anchor Kimberly McBroom said.
Watch the touching video above.
The suspected shooter was identified as Vester Lee Flanagan, a former WDBJ reporter who went by “Bryce Williams” on air. He fled the scene and died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound hours later.
The station has created a memorial outside its building to remember Parker and Ward.
You kno it’s kinda funny how if I ever say I hate guns around someone who fuckin adores them their first response isn’t “oh to each there own” or something decent it’s “I bet you haven’t even shot a gun”
And my only response is I haven’t gone to a fucking nude beach but I’m sure as hell confident it would make me feel uncomfortable. So newsflash I don’t need to have shot a gun to hate them.
Do not believe the garbage that some media are saying. The facts are this.
1) Yes, there was a BLM protest/rally going on.
2) The snipers shot from an elevated position AFTER the PEACEFUL BLM protest/rally.
3) The snipers were not part of the BLM rally.
4) The snipers had their own sick agenda of murder.
4) THE SNIPERS WERE NOT PART OF THE BLM PROTEST
5) THE SNIPERS WERE NOT PART OF THE BLM PROTEST
6) THE SNIPERS WERE NOT PART OF THE BLM PROTEST
People like Kylie Jenner have nooo problem plumping up their lips, twerking while blasting rap music, & showing off their raggedy ass cornrows.. but they decide to keep quiet about unjustified murders of innocent black people.
TF are you guys gong to do when they kill everyone and there’s no one left to copy?
“I’m definitely becoming more vocal because I see the need,” Rhode told the Guardian. “We just had six laws that were passed in California that will directly affect me. For example, one of them being an ammunition law. I shoot 500 to 1,000 rounds a day, having to do a background check every time I purchase ammo or when I bring ammo out for a competition or a match – those are very, very challenging for me.”
When asked about the mass shootings in the world, Rhode went straight for the jugular.
“When you look at these events that have been occurring, they’ve been occurring in some of the strictest gun law countries in the world,” Rhode said. “You have Paris, you have San Bernardino, which was actually in a gun-free zone, so, yeah, it’s actually something that you take into consideration.”
“For me personally, I realize the first responsibility of a police officer is to respond to an incident and for me personally, in that five minutes or 10 minutes or 20 minutes in some cases that it takes for them to get there, how do you want to stand there? I would rather have my second amendment right,” she added.
Apple unveiled a bunch of new emojis this week, including emojis representing single parents, female athletes, a pride flag and a green water pistol. The company hasn’t officially announced that the water gun will replace the regular gun emoji, but all signs point to that being the case, especially after Apple blocked another controversial emoji from its platform earlier this year.
