But, he was a damn good worker, and beyond the realm of birth control, he wasn't quite a complete moron.

He doesn't know if he's gay or not though. This is a question that really bothers him. Seriously, he meditates on that crap, trying to decide whether he could have a relationship with a man. I think he is and he's just scared to admit it.

Yup. He's a strange duck.

I'm already starting to see it happening on Facebook gun trader groups... Many of them doing this are a bunch of young kids...

"I'm looking to sell my DPMS AR now! It's only 3 months old, and I've only fired 30 bullets from it! Comes with 2 hi capacity clips! Only $3000! Selling at a major loss because I have a baby on the way and I didn't get as much back on my tax refund as I thought I would thanks to Obama!"

About 60 comments down the page, after the poster has gotten pissed because he's not getting rich off his rifle, you see where he's sold it for $1000.

And I laugh and laugh...

Yep...

Is there a such thing as a 4000fps .30 caliber cartridge? If there is why isn't it more popular? The .22-250 is popular because of shooting flat, a .30 should be too. I know, the recoil would be enough to knock out dental fillings, but a brake or magnaport would solve that.

Re: 4000 fps 30 cal. Yes, there is. Uses a .50 BMG case and a sabot. Bullets tend to break up from the speed of the SPIN. Accuracy questionable. Bore life that of a Mayfly. Recoil significant. Cost atrocious.

Just because something CAN be done does not mean it is a good idea.

The people that buy them at that price piss me off more than the ones trying to sell them at that price.

Let's face it, the AR is really nothing super special. You can hang all kind of cool crap off of it, and it's easy to use and maintain, accepts magazines...

And when people buy them at these exorbitant prices, they're enabling these price gouging ass holes.
