HE HAD 50 POUNDS

Postby cowgirl8 » Fri Oct 06, 2017 7:55 am

He had 50 pounds of tannerite!!!!!!!.....and they are worried about a bump stock....
My son has a bump stock, I may have linked his video here before... Shot up 100 rounds in 8 seconds ending with his gun on fire. Luckily, it didn't ruin it...... Yer guns on fire....

Looks like a total waste of good expensive ammo to me.

It's not a waste to a young guy. I would have done the same thing. Today, with my old man goggles on it looks different.

You don't want to know how much I 'wasted' in my youth, doing the real thing. I learned real quick that after a long day of flying, it was a lot easier to carry cans of empty brass and links back to the hangar than unused full heavy cans of good ammo..

Not to mention the 1600 lbs of ammonium nitrate in his trunk.

He did this once and said it was the quickest way to blow 40 bucks....never used it again...lol....but you gotta try it once right.. The 100 round mag belonged to my son in law. I use to refer him as bomb boy. If I heard explosions, I knew he was around. Now, he's married to my daughter...

We can only guess what he had planned for that stuff. CNN just said he had 150 pounds of tannerite...it keeps going up. I just don't understand why they aren't focusing on it rather than the bump fire.... just craziness

I know.....but you also had an almost unlimited supply "furnished" free.

Two reasons. One, he didn’t use it.
Two, gun talk gets more viewers. Antis love these nut jobs because it helps push people over to their side of the issue.

I don't know what a bump stock is. I haven't been watching any of the news. I figure they are focusing on the tannerrite so they can get it banned. To them it looks like legal dynamite.

A device that uses the recoil of the weapon to cycle the trigger repeatedly. Basically makes a semi auto function like a full auto.

I posted a video of my son shooting one if you want to see at the beginning of this thread. Caught his gun on fire. Had a 100 round mag on it.
Has anyone seen the video of a news reporter shooting one to demo how they work. Had a gun with a suppressor and a grenade launcher on it, for show i'm sure...lol... I haven't seen it, but watched my husband and son watching it on his phone and both were laughing. I didn't have on glasses so I couldn't see it...but seeing them laugh is all I needed to see... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbkjniQm-wI

I like shooting guns just for fun, but I’ve been in a few situations where bullets were flying in my direction.
