1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    The captured Stg44 picture is in one of my gun magazines at home.

    yeah, isn't that just about the best scene in "guy movie" history? I wasn't able to figure out how to capture the picture on my computer from the DVD.

    The G3 is great though - a little large and old-fashioned/boring looking but powerful, accurate and reliable. Hate the bayonet though, such a POS. Now, the AK-47 style bayonets, now we are talking. [​IMG]

    I have to agree on every point - particularly about the bayonet, if it's anything like this knife bayonet,which is used by the Norwegian army:

    Blech, that looks awfully familiar. I doubt that would be useful for even cutting soup, lol, never mind combat.

    No hunting for me. The military killed my love for the Great Outdoors. I love the Great Indoors! Like Bellagio, Mandalay Bay, etc. [​IMG]

    I do have a firearm, a Colt .380, and I do visit the gun range from time-to-time. But in my opinion, guns are for killing people, so I'm not really into them, at least not anymore.

    If Zach hadn't already called it, I would definitely steal that for my avatar [​IMG] What a badass. I prefer him taking off to go get one of the guns, just walking out of the camp without a care in the world--other than getting that gun.
