Having fired, caressed and even slept with the M79 (and the XM174) I can tell you it won't work inside a house unless the rooms are really big because the 40mm projectiles are spin activated only after 30 meters.

Awesome that you got the chance to use an XM174!
You could try to tell them that, but they can't understand fact.

Is that kind of like the people who were screaming about how the incident was going to affect them before the bodies of the children were removed from the murder scene?

There are nuts aplenty on both sides.

Chain... We know you're a lefty on a lot of stuff, but you're pretty pro 2A as far as I can tell. I think a lot of people around here throw the word left around, but referring to the anti gunners...
When I say leftists, about gun issues, I'm not referring to you or pro gun lefties, I mean the anti gunners.
Just hope there's no confusion or hard feelings.

1. Is that even possible?
2. Even if it was possible, who cares. So you take a grenade launcher and make it fire something far less dangerous?
3. Where the hell do you but 40mm grenades?
There are 40MM grenades of "cannister," Think buckshot on steroids.

It's the M576.
It was made for soldiers in Vietnam who used the M79. It made it a close range weapon when needed. They also tried a flechette round, but flechettes suck, so that didn't work out.

Flechettes work better in a 155mm "beehive!"

Exactly! They suck in shotguns and grenade launchers, but are awesome in howitzers and records rifles.

Flechettes are even better in a “Daisy Cutter” dropped from a Buff.



For you non-Air Force guys that’s a canister bomb that we used in Vietnam to make DZ’s and clear dense jungle. A Buff is a B-52…. Buff stands for “Big Ugly F*cker”.
