I actually agree with Ray... definitely not this shooter's cup of tea, and definitely the ugly face of Amerika.

It's the thought that counts though Col

I mostly collect rifles from neutral nations - Swiss and Swedish rifles from 1889 to 1945. The most modern rifle I have is an Anschutz 1418 Stutzen .22 RF from 1965. I have no need nor desire for anything more "modern" or "tactikool"

What can you say?
The preoccupation with guns is rather odd.
More so because they usually end up shooting bottles of water or unopened "soda" cans.
I was going to say these folk are child like but when you think about it even kids have more sense.
Really what the heck would you use either of these pistols for.

Hardly NRA propaganda (I didn't see any mention of the NRA in the pics). They are simply photos of a couple of pieces of precision mechanical items. I seem to recall a recent thread about censorship, are some of you now saying that it should be selectively applied here?

It's definitely not propaganda - I think it's utter crap, but it's not propaganda.

I'd be leaning forward to use that ' hand cannon ' , kick back would be quite something I'd reckon.

Speaking on Indian Mynahs , much like protesting, the ,most effective weapon is a good rock thrown from the high ground. A constant rock throwing every time they land on the roof quickly sends them down the road to easier pickings. Seriously. And way cheaper fancy firearms and the lawyers unless of course you break the neighbours window.

Might also work for Indian Miners but I am not publicly suggesting anyone try.

Haha, nice dig at Adani there. However I thought the current modus operandi was to epoxy oneself to a busy road?
I have a mental image of an Astro protestor somehow inserted into a large solid tube dob with the dob glued to the road. That would make for some interesting news optics.

Protesting ballistically inclined astronomers may better suited to doing what was suggested elsewhere here and moving over to a different technology. Was that a certain well informed poster turning reflector scopes into some kind of beam disrupters to disable those pesky shiny fleets of satellites.? Eco activist astronomers.
