Are gun threads not allowed?

Why was this:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=968445

moved to the forum where rage goes to die? It was simply a thread to discuss the effectiveness of the 5.7 vs. the .45.

I do not see any forum rage - what am I missing?

Really? You used the mass shootings at Fort Hood as the premise of a thread debating which ammunition is better for killing peope. It's either a troll or you are completely clueless. Either way, your time here will probably not be a long one.

Wow - I guess my time in the military really left me with no clue what hand guns - especially the .45 and the FiveseveN - were designed to do.

Thanks for the lesson. Now I know to limit comments about gun fatalities and ballistic stats to non-Americans.

Sorry to bother you.

I don't think the content was your issue as much as the giant-ass picture. Also if you do believe in gun rights (like me) be aware that there are some people who are super sensitive to them, and are looking for any reason to take them away from people.

Agreed - and thanks for the common sense response.

I also agree the image size was excessive, but not intentional. I found it on Google images and copied the link. Google automatically resizes the image to fit the screen, so I never noticed how BIG it really was and I didn't bother to take the time to manually resize - my apologies.

Find something better to do with your time than compare which guns kill more effectively, jesus...

Thanks to moderators on this one.

Aside from porn, welcome to one of the most popular topics on the internet. Don't believe me? Just look at the number of smilies the Adventure Rider forum has dedicated to guns and killing:


Maybe y'alls time would be better served on an Oprah forum than in Jo Momma?

right, why are you using the mass shootings at Fort Hood to compare guns, the kill stats you posted are worth nothing, unless they were all hit in the same spot, all weighed the same etc... didn't your expert military training on handguns teach you this?

vet here too, but don't use it to assume smarter than non-mil.

Police departments and militaries around the world study real-world shootings for balistic data and wound channels, and Fort Hood will be no different. The results just won't be posted in Jo Momma.

However, it's pointless to discuss this with Obama-love'n liberal mindsets, so I'll head back to the Thumper Forum.

I'll bet if you looked, you would find forums for both porn and guns. Perhaps they are even all on one site. Don't let us keep you from them.

All kidding aside. We welcome all noobs here at ADV Rider. This is a vibrant community made up of people from all walks of life. Like any community there are social norms and customs that are subtle.

Rather than settling down before you settled in you came on strong and violated the understood rather than the stated. Then, instead of figuring out what you did, or sending a PM to the moderator who moved your post, you walked into the proverbial town square and challenged the sheriff to a gun fight at high noon.
