  1. a downed pilot doesn't need a rifle. he'll get himself a few mags deep into trouble thinking he's now suddenly in the army and get shot.

    better off with taurus judge or something similar that doubles as a flare launcher and can stop a bear with a .45.

  2. They didn't create anything. Took parts on the civilian marketplace and screwed them on. Reason most civilians don't have one with a short barrel is the tax stamp requirement. The QRB has been around for years.

    1. When I first saw it, I though it could pass for an AR pistol with the exception of the stock. I think this would be a a great E&E weapon compared to some of the more anemic ones of the past.

  3. 'Bout damn time! Every time I ejected I felt naked!! The little popguns they give us are totally inadequate!

    ;P

    These would fit nicely under a car seat, wouldn't they?

  4. It fits next to the drug issue, the hundred dollars in gold, and the three pairs of nylon stockings...

    2. Which will make it the most pilfered item in the Air Force.

      We used to have a hell of a time with the First Aid Kits in our airplanes, because of the rumors of them having morphine. (They didn't, and the PR's kept having to repack them if a broken seal was discovered.)

  5. A real pilot would grab the 20mm off the plane and take that with him

  6. Very different from the GAU-5A issued to me in the early eighties. Mine was essentially the XM-177 E2. Short and LOUD!
