No matter how serious the question, it seems there are a few key words that will ALWAYS get someone a smartass answer and flaming, with no actual help given. I'd like to start a thread to collect all these no-nos into one place so people can get edujumicated.

1. Saying "clip" when you really mean "magazine"
2. Saying "bullet/bullets" when you really are talking about the whole round or cartrige

ADD MORE!

Not to hijack the thread, but in general how many bullets does everyone put in a clip?h.gif

I usually try to match the number of bullets with the number of cartridges. It is a rule of thumb that has always worked for me, others may differ, however.

if your too stupid to realize that the M4 feed ramps in your colt SBR are there because colt found it would feed bullets from the clip better, then you deserve to get flamed.

Don't send this post to the AR forum on a Friday night after a long week at work after a couple of Vodka martini's because you thought it was funny:

CHUCK NORRIS FACTS:

Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried. Ever.

Chuck Norris does not hunt because the word hunting infers the probability of failure. Chuck Norris goes killing.

Chuck Norris has counted to infinity - twice.

If you can see Chuck Norris, he can see you. If you can't see Chuck Norris you may be only seconds away from death.

Chuck Norris sleeps with a night light. Not because Chuck Norris is afraid of the dark, but the dark is afraid of Chuck Norris.

Chuck Norris sold his soul to the devil for his rugged good looks and unparalleled martial arts ability. Shortly after the transaction was finalized, Chuck roundhouse kicked the devil in the face and took his soul back. The devil, who appreciates irony, couldn't stay mad and admitted he should have seen it coming. They now play poker every second Wednesday of the month.

When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night he checks his closet for Chuck Norris.

Chuck Norris is not hung like a horse... horses are hung like Chuck Norris.

If you ask Chuck Norris what time it is, he always says, "Two seconds 'til." After you ask, "Two seconds 'til what?" he roundhouse kicks you in the face.

Chuck Norris once ate three 72 oz. steaks in one hour. He spent the first 45 minutes having sex with his waitress.

If Chuck Norris is late, time better slow the hell down.

According to Einstein's theory of relativity, Chuck Norris can actually roundhouse kick you yesterday.

Chuck Norris doesn't read books. He stares them down until he gets the information he wants.

Chuck Norris ordered a Big Mac at Burger King, and got one.

At birth, Chuck Norris came out feet first so he could roundhouse kick the doctor in the face. Nobody delivers Chuck Norris but Chuck Norris.

Chuck Norris once bet NASA he could survive re-entry without a spacesuit. On July 19th, 1999, a naked Chuck Norris re-entered the earth's atmosphere, streaking over 14 states and reaching a temperature of 3000 degrees. An embarrassed NASA publically claimed it was a meteor, and still owes him a beer.

Someone once tried to tell Chuck Norris that roundhouse kicks aren't the best way to kick someone. This has been recorded by historians as the worst mistake anyone has ever made.

Ummmm....Colt found that it fed better during auto/burst. I guess if you bumpfire then maybe you DO need them.......also....you already violated one of the "don't do it unless you want to be flamed guidelines. Highlighted in red above.

Also, I have shot plenty of actual m16a2 rifles that did not have m4 ramps, and I don't remember having a major feeding problem...in fact, I can't remember my rifle ever failing to feed.....even during burst. Not saying that they don't do something, but they are overhyped on arfcom. Also, thank you for prooving my post correct (you flamed me because I mentioned M4 ramps in a less than holy light).

I don't really believe that I have put my foot in my mouth. I have my opinion on the matter, and you have yours. The difference is that I can post an opinion, and realize that it is just that, an opinion. I have read numerous threads about the things that I have posted and I decided to post them in humor, sort of. He asked, and I responded with things that I have seen people flamed for. Also, all you have contributed to this thread is name calling, high-schoolish attempts at name calling RE: Dipshit, etc. At least I gave it an honest attempt. You my friend, are the one that should not be here, and you have demostrated by the above mentioned reasons. You are probably just upset because what I said is true, and you do those things. You are upset becuase I had the audacity common sense to see a trend and comment on it. Flame away.

What is it that they say about winning an arguement on the internet? Winning the special olympics is akin to winning an arguement on the internet because the winner is still retarded. Have fun away.

Oh, while I am at it...the Bush thing. You and I said basically the same thing...he didn't sign it, not because he is a friend to gun owners, he just didn't sign it. [nazi] All hail bush [/nazi]
