Space will, eventually, be militarized. This is an inevitability. Whether it is five decades or five centuries now, it is logical to assume that humanity will carry our grudges into space.
Which branch of the military (for the US) would most likely be given control over space-borne weaponry, or even manned ships? The Navy? This certainly seems to be science fiction's branch of choice, nearly every fleet of armed spacecraft in science fiction belongs to a "navy" of some form. Or perhaps the Air Force? They do, at present, have the most control over US satellites and intelligence. Or would it be something else entirely? Not unlike how the Air Force started as the Army Air Corps before branching out on its own when its mission became extremely different from the Army's.
Which shitty digital cammie pattern is going to be worn in space
Also, hypothetical space combat general I guess
Giving full auto funs to the general public with no oversight will not end well

First of all before you accuse me of being anti gun or /nogunz/ I own 22 guns and worked at a gun range that rented out full auto funs for almost 9 years. You have no idea some of the shit i've seen. It's a minor miracle that I've never seen anyone brain themselves although it did happen a year before I joined and trust me I've seen many bullets fired into the ceiling. The only reason no one died on my watch is because I started off by loading 5 rounds into the magazine placing my hand on the gun lightly to be ready to control the muzzle if necessary. If you have ever worked in customer service and dealt with the general public you will understand: they are not competent, and they are not safe. It's not just the issue of a few darwin cases either. That i wouldn't have a problem with, it's the fact that these morons will be spraying bullets everywhere that can and will kill innocent people. It WILL cause deaths, sure not 33,000 toddlers like liberals claim, but it will be more than enough for the media to jump on and use as ammo to demonize guns which brings me to my next point.
I want legal cans man, and I want them to STAY legal. I want every day hunters to be able to buy suppressed rifles for reasonable prices so we can wipe out these damn hogs once and for all. This is a great way to make sure that another equally (or more) restrictive gun ban gets passed a few years down the line. I don't want that, and I'm sure you don't either.
Do I want a better market for full autos where I can buy Vietnam Surplus for what it's worth? fuck yes, but there needs to be oversight. There needs to be some barrier to entry for full autos, at least to start out with. We can't get too greedy man. We are so close to destroying support for gun control that we can't afford to fuck this up.

Does flinch ever go away for good? i've been shooting since August and have probably fired about 2500 collective rounds (1000 of them were just dicking around on my friends farm with a massive arsenal of guns and ammo he owns), I put in about 100 rounds at the range every two weeks (would love to do more but it's all I can afford right now) and after a week of constant dry fire practice, examining my stance and changing it up to be as effective as possible, I had what I consider a pretty good day at the range, but I was still plagued by flinch. All of these are 10 rounds at 7 yards except for the top right which was a full mag at 5 yards "rapid" fire, which is strange because it might be the best one. I just find it strange that I still catch myself having to do a dry fire drill only to see myself jerking the gun downward in anticipation. Does this just go away over time if I keep working at it?
END MY LIFE SENPAI

Storytime of the bad kind.

Fucking hell. How can things go downhill so fast? I wasn't in the wrong on this one, right? There's no way I could have seen this coming. Why do I have to choose between one of my rights and my family?
