Hick family members use Scherzl - the heel of a bread loaf or the ends of a meat roast.

That would be correct for Bavaria- we either say Scherzl or Scherzerl.

Also that Jackalope thing is a bavarian legend called the "Wolpertinger", which is a very popular legend/taxidermist joke. I don't know if it predates the American Jackalope myth, but it sure is widespread.

There's a nice specimen in the Munich Hunting and Forestry Museum- the image text states that it's main prey are "soft Prussian skulls" :haw:

When I was at that museum they had a ton of them on display, and a few for sale. I almost bought one but shipping something that large and fragile would be expensive.

Especially when your nearest taxidermist can probably whip one up for you from scraps he would otherwise throw away or feed to his dog.

Hey, I asked for help getting pictures off of a non-smart phone...so I've got crappy cell phone pics at least.

What kind of phone? Does it have a card slot? Give us some info and we may help you retrieve your 640x480 works of art.

Haha, that really is the oddest thing. Not doubting you, it's just so diametrically opposed to my own experience.

For instance, the precision shooters over here really like Magtech 95gr and the 115gr is well regarded by most all-round shooters. Naturally people with the means to do so, roll their own, but with Magtech compoments...

Hence the question if you guys somehow get bizarro Magtech shipments? :psyduck:

Yeah, my thoughts exactly- Magtech is really popular and widespread target ammo in Austria. It's the only stuff i shoot when i rent a Glock at the range, and i've never had a single problem with it.

Could be because of Glock Perfection though :smug:

Don't care about the scratches.

If the damage only cosmetic - gently caress it.

Now that really depends on the condition of the gun you have. Scratching a really pristine gun is like scratching a new car, it doesn't really matter functionally, but it still hurts.

Also don't forget that even "fully automated" machinery probably needs a lot of cleaning and maintenance work, plus all the paper work, hazardous material permits, etc.

I'd think twice about opening a business on a whim- there's too many small business owners who never really do anything other than covering their costs while working for (sometimes less than) minimum wage.

Because the felt recoil of the air rifle isn't proportional to the muzzle energy.
Felt recoil can be different according to varying factors- muzzle energy, weapon weight, barrel length, and most importantly the type of action that the weapon uses.
In your case, it's the air rifle's spring action violently slamming forward that you felt as recoil. A bolt-action .22 rifle has almost no recoil, both because of the cartridge's small energy and because there are almost no moving parts.

I tried, but GTA4 is one of the few games my system refuses to run smoothly. So no, why?

Whenever I hear about Hitler's involvement in weapons production, I'm reminded of a seven year old boy.

:hitler:AND THEN IT SHOULD HAVE HUGE GUNS THAT SHOOT FIRE AND CANDY AND BULLETS AND OTHER GUNS

:hitler: CAN U AT LEAST MAKE IT DO SOME OF IT?

I actually believe that is not so far from the truth. You have to remember that he got amphetamine injections from his personal physician practically every day after 1942.

Now i don't know how many speed freaks you personally know, but let me tell you, it substitutes verbal quantity for quality.

I stole this from The Firearm Blog, but it is a fairly interesting fictitious gun designed by one of the Crytek guys that actually has some thought put into it.



Also, it has a RAILED loving SUPPRESSOR.



More pictures, animations and pretend info here.

The next logical step- a weapon where the whole stock is a huge magazine that holds like 200 rounds and balances the fuckload of heavy tacticlol poo poo hanging off the front.

GSG mainly produces AIRSOFT guns.

Their .22lr guns are plastic airsoft frames with cheap .22lr actions.

This isn't necessarily all bad, but lower your expectations accordingly.
