More crap commentary from Yours Truly - the
innernet’s foremost firearms dink!
Go ahead! Ask me about 9mm’s, Glocks, or Russian firearms - and you will be rewarded with a stream of hateful and ignorant commentary that will leave you feeling stupider after having listened to it! HAR HAR HAR!
Y’know I was totally NOT surprised by this at all. If the Russians are using a piece of kit, it’s being issued for one reason, and one reason only - because it works! But lord…nobody can find an uglier way to do things than Russians. Look…I get it: it’s not right or proper to expect Damascus steel, finial embellishment, zero run out on fit and finish…but gimme a break! That thing looks like it was made for K-Mart! They’re even worse than Walmart! I have better blades for cutting twine on hay bales! The crunch comes: is what you have the same as what you need? Damn - these blades are ugly! But we in the west have our problems on the other end of the scale.
Sigh. Their equipment works. And they can stamp them out by the hundreds of thousands while our guys get bogged down with QA/QC compliance BS and red tape that sends prices through the roof, and deliveries into next year! It also allows for grifters and carpet baggers to infiltrate our military supply chains.
We see this with the current rocket/missile exchanges between Russia and NATO. (Yes, you heard that right; there are no longer any Ukes that can effectively deploy these weapons - they were all wasted weeks ago. Their missile defence now is all imported from the west… and they are on borrowed time the second they show up inside Ukrainian territory).
The Russians are destroying the Ukes with bargain basement cruise missiles and drones that are so basic…they can sometimes be shot down with small arms fire. At first the Ukes took to doing that with gay abandon…until those missiles they “shot down” started coming down in occupied residential Ukrainian neighborhoods. I heard Slow Joe and the Washington DC morons are sending Patriot missiles over there to deal with the threat…but for every Patriot that gets launched…Putler can send dozens of the cheapo missiles and they will blast those Patriot batteries to smithereens before they can even defend themselves - never mind the cities and civilians.
Not that I am crowing about any of this. Learning that “cheap and dirty works” was a hard lesson for me to learn on a personal level too. This should be a learning moment for us… but unfortunately I don’t think our leaders are really capable of that these days. Uncle Bob used to lecture that in Greek mythology, the big lesson is that hubris is inevitably followed by Nemesis.
In the current tard vernacular, as per Uncle Bob… I’d say we will probably be getting reacquainted with Darwin and Murphy… sooner rather than later…
I have one them surplus bayos. That cutter works and has good leverage. Like you said, their stuff works.ReplyDelete
It will take months for the first Patriot Missile to get over there and requires 90 trained personnel to operate it (guess where they're coming from)ReplyDelete
You can be sure Vlad has this in his sights and it will be vaporized as soon as it crosses over from Poland.
It's basically a mirror sans smoke at this point-ain't never gonna happen.
And like you say, Lord of Filthy, the Russkies build things that may be crude and unsightly (please clutch your pantaloons now), but they work. Period. And we continue to build shit that doesn't. Not hard to see the impending result.
20grand$ for cheap explosive drone. 2million$ for a single Patriot and one billion for the whole battery. Who's the stupid one? You should have bought the lockheed stock back in obama's first term. Hoping it will break the 500$ per share soon.ReplyDelete
America's debt to GDP ratio 125% (or more depending how off the books is cooked)ReplyDelete
Russia debt to GDP 12.5%
Our CONgress authorized "AID" to Ukraine has been several times the whole military budget of Russia.
And we think OUTSPENDING them is a good idea.
I remember allied troops thinking the T-34 was crude but the Germans didn't like them swarming their super tanks.
Prepare for economic chaos as even more rubber checks are written by CONgress. THEY will not suffer from lack of heating fuels and foods but we "the people" will.
I used to think an SKS was a pos, til I shot one. Then, I bought one. Disassembled it and bought a second one post-autopsy. Nice, honest rifles.ReplyDelete
Hated cleaning the bloody thing though LOLDelete
As much as you praise all things Russian, I would almost bet that you got one of those Russian mail order brides. Give it a rest, sycophant! Jeez!ReplyDelete
Wait!! What!!!??? You can order a bride from Russia??!! Hopefully they aren't all stupid and feminista like most western women have become.Delete
Just get an honest set of wire cutters! That MacGyver stuff only works on TV!ReplyDelete
Russian Ak's or Chinesium? It matters because the Chinese can't make anything metal that doesn't fall apart on contact. Total crap metal from that country.ReplyDelete
News today is they will train at Ft. Sill, artillery capital of the world. Wonder if they will hit the casinos and then the Mexican border from there.ReplyDelete
