You know, for a thing called a carry handle my instructors spent a lot of time and energy ensuring I would literally never carry it using that handle.

Nope. The charging handle on the 601 is loving trash. The 603 is aite, but forward assists are good and correct soooo you're wrong.

Isn't the Mk19 infamous for jamming loving constantly? Like, "can't even get through a single belt without multiple stoppages" bad?

The way the gun operates results in a ton of aluminum fouling, and it is entirely possible to load the belt backwards, stripping off the little tit on the link and giving you a real bad time.

they are fun to shoot when then want to cooperate tho

Is it the Mk19 that has a heavy (80lbs or something?) mainspring and rod pointed at your chest when you disassemble it? I remember reading something along those lines a while ago and hmmm don't like that

The spring is just held in by a pin that's only a few mm long and is captured on a guide rod. You could hypothetically improperly remove the recoil spring, go to charge the gun to remove the bolt assembly, and then punch yourself really hard in the guts for a real bad time.

I've never had that problem with Mark 19. I think I only have like one or two stoppages on a belt ever? And since clearing the stoppage of an explosive grenade is kind of hair-raising I think I remember more

Yeah the 240 is easier to clean, more reliable and doesn't poo poo gas in your face when you shoot it.

In my case it would be like having lingering feelings over the one that got away and getting a realdoll made to resemble them.

Food chat?

I was thinking about making some dutch oven bread. I have dutch ovens, after all, and camping probably isn't going to happen for a while. Years ago, I made some kind of whole wheat bread with honey in it, but I can't find the recipe. It was extremely simple, though.

Literally 137.7% of all bread recipes I can find now are no-knead. Why. Why, God, why. Mankind has been kneading bread for a long time, and it seems to have worked perfectly well since... {checks watch)... forever. Why do I have to scroll past 3,000 no-knead recipes now? What in the actual gently caress?

Look, I know that making bread takes a while. But I don't want to plan it a day ahead. Jesus.

The only sauce that belongs on a steak is hollandaise with crab meat. The asparagus tips can gently caress off, though.
