WTA has a thread about this... guns that have been put out to pasture, but need to be brought back into production with modern refinements of manufacturing and materials.
This is my top ten, but not in any order.
Gundoc has done a little video showing our Templar Rifle. The Crusader Templar is easily the best 556 AR type weapon on the planet. Everything in it is the best. The Slipstream Treatment applied to it further improves function. Accuracy is far beyond any expectation for a fighting gun.
I have a little video up on YouTube that always gets the most enlightened of comments.
Like this video here. The Comment that just illustrates the frustration is like this one:
LOL I dont even think youd have to hit the thing with that, the bullet whizzing past a prairie dog would be enough to kill it. Mind you kind of an expensive way to get rid of vermin aint it
Sorry, I didn’t edit the comments… Just Cut and Paste so you can see what’s going on without having to actually go dip into those dank waters.
There are so many misconceptions about “The Fifty” that it’s almost as if it’s some mythological beast… One day, it’s going to be like talking about Dragons or something.
The .50 doesn’t put out head ripping shockwaves. It’s only 2700 to 2800 FPS in most loadings. Which puts it at the same speed as say a .308 or a good old .30-06. In fact, the cartridge is really nothing more than a big .30-06. What gives the .50 the range and power, is that the projective is just so big and heavy. Bullets weight in from 650 to over 750 grains… which is impressive. The .50 BMG’s slug alone is larger than some rifle cartridges. Firing a .50 BMG rifle is a lot of fun. It’s impressive. The blast is huge. The power that it puts out is staggering. But the bullet zipping past something in a near miss isn’t going to do anything to it other than making it soil its self.
The other problem that I’m having is finding a Range for Crusader Training. I had picked out a couple good alternative locations for the Tactical Carbine course. But we’ve run into a snag. Let me explain.
I’ve decided that I totally hate Netbooks. This unit is as decked out as you can get it. Big optional hard drive for storage. Lots of RAMs running around. In fact with RAM and HD space, it’s actually just as good as my late Laptop… but that’s where the good points end. The wireless antenna sucks and gives crap for signal strength, even when within feet of a wireless access point. But that’s fine, I can live with that. But what really sucks the most is the little anemic processor.
