Guns are Tools

Jack just pointed out this page on industrial shotguns.

Now that’s pretty cool. Obviously defensive, military, sport, and food-harvesting applications are where guns shine.

Can’t find any Navy or Coastguard training videos, but I know they still throw lines with guns, essentially using a Monkey’s Fist as a modified rifle grenade.

Guns are tools, some less mature people may not LIKE the jobs they’re good for, but that doesn’t make them any less tools.

    Being able to propel a mass at high velocity in a controllable and reliable manner is very useful. And has many applications.

    The navy uses the CG85 Bridger Line Throwing Gun

    And a demonstration

    The park I work at still has an old break-open line gun in .45-70 for use as a water rescue device. We haven’t shot it in years, but it’s perfectly capable of lobbing a 12-inch metal rod, with a float at one end and a line attached to the other, a couple hundred yards. It’s a heavy beast, too, with the metal line canister slung under the barrel.

    I can think of no reason I need a 8 gauge shotgun it’s not legal for harvesting game in my state an I bet any gun light enough to be shoulder fired would be painful to shoot but I want one.

    Is anyone else thinking about adding a tailgun to their car, or is it just me?

    Excellent point Sir, and they also shoot chickens into windshields of airplanes 🙂

      Bullet trains as well. Excellent example as well. Tho most of the chicken guns are pneumatic cannons rather than the others that are actual gunpowder guns and differ little from the guns the antis seek to ban.
