Lapua is the name of a town/city in Finland and it is also the name of an ammunition manufacturer in Finland that has developed the 6.5mm Lapua and .338 Lapua cartridges.

It is amazing to me how in this information age kids still ask rather than looking it up.

Google is your friend. Is it too much to ask to simply type NATO in to a search engine? It would take less time than posting a question. When I was a kid, I had a set of World Book Encyclopedias and a dictionary. I had to "look it up". Getting the answer to your question on a silver platter is part of what is wrong with America now. One does not have to work for knowledge, food, transportation, clothes or flat panel televisions. Everything is handed to you.

Life is going to kick you in the nads some day soon.

I think it's a matter of age when I was younger I asked more questions now that I'm almost 40 I just google everything or watch YouTube videos.

Often times I find myself wanting to say the same thing. Thanks for posting this Robo.. I'm seeing more and more threads basically asking the same things over and over.. There is already a wealth of info in the sticky threads that can answer a lot of the simple questions being asked ..

Todays technology has done nothing but contribute to stupidity when it comes to having some common sense.

Dumb questions may be annoying but by giving an answer you may be educating and saving a persons life. I would like to see someone here at this forum say they have never asked a dumb question.
