|0915 - Guns are green!|
current mood: giggly
How can anybody be so cruel and unfeeling. How can anybody paint a poor small AR-15 GREEN???
You can get the furniture for the AR-15 in lots of different colors...I'm sure you've seen Mad Mike Williamson's daughter's cute pink AR-15.
Seen it in real-life even. Adorably cute girl, gorgeous weapon.
...and, reportedly, one hell of a shot, too. Then again, the AR-15 makes it easy to shoot well.
Yes, but still... guns should be black, with the plastic parts black or olive drab, or wood in its natural color.
Mind you, the H&K SL8 looked better in light gray than it does in black ;-)
Oh, come on, if it was camo green you wouldn't object :)
Mmmm, my kind of woman. Red hair and knows guns...
We could produce some truly incredible children.
The green fishnets threw me off at first. I thought she was turning into the Hulk.
Almost. Most bullets have stopped using lead because of its harmful effects on the environment. I believe almost every bullet is made of steel now.
Many bullets (as well as shotgun shells) for hunting are made of non-lead materials, but nearly all defense ammunition is made of lead. Part of the business about "armor piercing" ammunition is that it's made of steel, and there's a concerted effort going on to prohibit the sale of those to civilians - after all, those are only useful for killing cops, or so the Left believes...
IDGI - are the guns or the bullets recyclable (per the ad)? The ad says "Guns are green" then says that lead, copper, and gunpowder are recyclable - my memory says (keep in mind I'm not a gun geek) that lead, copper, and gunpowder are all elements of bullets, not guns themselves, which would mean that the sign should say "bullets are green". OTOH, if "guns" are indeed what is meant in that (I'm sure that guns themselves have lead and copper in them), what self-respecting gun owner wants to recycle their guns? Isn't your worst nightmare to get rid of your guns? Nobody would recycle them (and if, in the odd chance that someone has to get rid of a gun that doesn't serve its function any more either as a weapon or a collectible, I doubt the blue box at the end of the driveway (you have those in the US, right?) is a good place to dispose of it, how *do* such guns get disposed of?)).
The sign is a misnomer.
