...and it turns out Bushmaster made the AR-15 and sold the design to Colt.

Just thought you'd all like to know the history of these evil black rifles.

Wow, that's a new one.

Don't you love range talk? That's what it's called the Bushmaster 15 right? This is Bushmaster15.com I think.

I don't talk to anyone at the range. Most are fudds or idiots who mouth off that kind of stuff.

Exactly why I avoid the range on weekends.

Sometimes I consider shooting without hearing protection so then I could be deaf and no longer be subjected to the advice people hand out.

I once heard a guy say that a .22 LR couldn't kill you...

What are you guys talking about? What's an AR15?

All these black rifles are just different brands of Bushmasters. I have a Colt Bushmaster... Doublestar Bushmaster... LMT Bushmaster... etc.

AR15s are just a style of the Bushmaster rifle.

/sarcasm

I love when people think all AR15 style rifles are "Bushmasters."

"That's a sweet Bushmaster! What kind is it?"

the guy next to me the other day-my age, mid to late 20s, was telling me what was what. he told me a bunch of stuff about how crazy .50 cal is. and he told me about how his dad flew f-14s and once took him up in an f-14, and let him fly it for a few minutes.

The guy probably just got mixed up with Armalite. (Yes, I know the current Armalite is not the same company that invented the AR15).
Link Posted: 5/2/2009 4:00:45 PM EDT
Umm! no turns out ARMALITE(NOT THE CURRENT COMPANY) Sold the rights for manufacture of AR-15's to the U.S. Government who  contracted COLT to produce rifles, and then Hydra Matic div. General Motors, and then FN, and even Bushamster for some M-4's during Gulf war 1.

This dickwad dind't sell you a bridge across a New York river did he?

IT most likely won't unless you are hit it in the more vulnerable parts of the skull or a major artery that is close to the skin.  A coworkers nephew was shot with a .22 in the back of the neck and got a fate worse than death imo... damaged spinal chord paralized from the neck down.  But as far as a torso shot, I don't think it would penetrate deep enough to hit the vital organs.

No WAY I was told for a FACT by a guy at the gun range that COLT stole the plans for the AR15 from Airsoft and Bushmaster has nothing to do with it!!
Link Posted: 5/2/2009 4:20:53 PM EDT
Sounds like someone needs a history lesson.

On one of my range trips last year...

"God damn McNamara took away the M-14's our guys had in Vietnam and gave them this piece of plastic shit the M-16 instead!  Enemy soldier gets shot with one and it doesn't even faze him!"

Just smiled and shook my head.
