Or for another take. Over here, the bigger stronger people can freely kick
the sh1t out of the smaller weaker people[1] with out fear of getting
personally hurt. Then get sent to an open prison from which they can readily
abscond.

Meanwhile in countries where guns are legally held the smaller weaker people
can also commit crimes of violence. That real equality that is.

[1] Smaller weaker people includes but is not limited to: women, children
and cripples.

Right.

I guess that the only thing cooler than AtP having 120,000 hits for his hobb=
ing and hex boring vids would be if he'd sourced it in 8K UHD...

UHD CNC porn is where it's gonna be, mark my words :-)

A little late to the party, but...


Why would you need a lathe and welder=3F=C2=A0




When I did historical re-enactment I had a fully functional, proofed, =
smoothbore barrelled matchlock musket. Crude as hell but perfectly capable =
of throwing either a ball or a handful of shot a significant distance at =
high speed. The major functional parts were a length of cold-rolled steam =
pipe, a threaded plug to close the breech, and a priming pan welded to the =
side of the barrel with a simple pivoted cover.=C2=A0




The plug which closed the breech was turned to size/shape before being =
threaded but I can't help feeling there are probably standard =
hydraulic/steam/whatever fittings which would do the same job and I imagine=
there are other ways than welding to attach the priming pan.

Schoolboy error :o)
The bloke sounds like a knob of the first order. His Facebook page is full of
adverts for shite and he employs the same monosyllabic style for all of them.
