While trying to go over a fence at my father in law's farm my brother in law dropped his marlin 30-30 in the mud plugging the barrel. I told him he better ram rod it out before shooting it, his idea was to shoot it out...dumbass

Definition of armchair commando:
(urban dictionary)

An armchair commando is a lowlife nerd kid who sits at home shows off his military knowledge and argues about anything that has to do with military and politics involving military and pretends to know more than scientists do about ballistics, measurements, Parts of a weapon and more... Even though they have never shot a single gun ever in their life.

Mall ninja:
A term used in the firearm community to describe an individual who is obsessed with tactical, paramilitary style firearms and modifications, particularly firearms composed mostly of plastic. Such individuals are usually un-experienced novices who compulsively overpay for weapons and accessories not worth their weight in dog crap because such items looked cool in movies and video games.

At a major chain sporting goods store I heard the gun counter employee tell a younger new hunter (probably 20-ish) that a, ".270 is too small for whitetail deer, no matter what your Grandfather says."

What the?!?!

I was able to convince him to buy the .270 rifle he was seeking. It was on sale and a pretty decent deal.

I took my son to the doctor today. (Nothing Serious) We were sitting in the waiting room. I was reading my cabelas catalog. This idiot sat across from us and asked if we wre hunters. I said yes. He claimed that he was a competative shooter. Looked like a total drunk redneck idiot. Anyway he claimed that he has a 25-06 he can shoot 1000 yard groups the size of a dime. My son and I just looked at each other. We cracked up when we walked to the car.

I had stopped in a small LGS in Tidewater VA. Owner and another gent were discussing tuning .300 Win mag loads. Youngster that had come into shop jumped into discussion, began badmouthing the .300- there were so many better rounds, more accurate, yadda yadda yadda.

After a minute, owner of shop asked me "C3, don't believe you have met my friend-" Said no have not had the pleasure. "This is Carlos Hathcock." I stopped. This is like saying "I'd like to introduce you to Elvis." Yes, was Gunny Hathcock.

Not only USMC top score sniper in Vietnam, he had been the Camp Peary 1000 meter International Rifle Champion. Used a .300 Win Mag.
man i would love to meet mr. Hathcock.

1000 yard group the size of a dime?
We had a thread not long ago on these rifles that actually bolt/clamp to the table, they don't even have a stock (I think other members were calling them rail guns), I'll bet those guns can't even group like that.

I was in a gun shop looking for some 7.7 Jap right after I bought my Arisaka. I asked for the 7.7x58 for a Japanese Arisaka and the guy behind the counter proceeded to tell me theres no such thing as the 7.7 round or a Arisaka and that the Japanese used 6.5 Carcanos in WWII. I told him I just bought one and gave the various types and years they were used, and that there was a 6.5 Arisaka, but the guy just continued to argue that I had a Carcano and there is no such thing as a Arisaka....
