After looking through ATEFI, I noticed more than a few faults with the 'factual knowledge' of the users there on the topic of firearms.
"My cousin thinks the intervention it is called intervention and when i say to him that its real name is Cheytac M-200 (not intervention assholes) he thinks i am lyng."
First off, I should start by saying that the full name is actually Cheyenne Tactical M200 "Intervention".
Secondly, assuming that you don't want to call every gun by its full name, "Intervention" is a perfectly legitimate name (or nickname) for the M200. Why this user thought calling it an Intervention was a huge offence is beyond me.
"One day i was talking with a friend about the Desert Eeagle and a firend come and he think i was talking about and eagle in the dessert LOL."
And can you blame him? Say the words 'desert' and 'eagle' to an average bloke and of course they're going to think that you're talking about deserts and eagles. For God's sake, not everyone knows or cares about guns.
P.S. he spelt 'Eagle' and 'Desert' wrong.
"I fucking hate when my online friends see a revolver whatever revolver it is they called it the 44.Magnum even when i show the Mk Webley"
I fucking hate it when a member of ATEFI sees a revolver and calls it the 'Mk Webley'.
"My teacher on an M1 Garand "Is that a bolt action?""
Your teacher was asking because he clearly wasn't a firearms expert and he wanted to know. For christ's sake, you're supposed to be teaching people about firearms, not cussing them because they don't know these things.
"Ignoramus: What's everyone using?
Ignoramus: M14 sucks dude, use an M16, it's the best gun.
Me: Shut your face. The M14 would have kept Ivan out of Korea and your little .223 BB-gun lost 3 wars.
Ignoramus: (shuts up for the rest of the game)"
SO MUCH WRONG. First of all, clearly they are playing a VIDEO GAME. 'Ignoramus' is referring to the in-game weapon stats, not the actual gun.
Secondly, there's a reason they took the M14 out of service. It was heavy, and in humid conditions (such as 'Nam and Korea) the wooden stocks swelled up, affecting proper usage of the iron sights.
Also, referring to an individual as an 'Ignoramus' does not make you a more intelligent person, contrary to popular belief.
"Once, my friend has fake wooden Springfield.
him: I'm gonna take my M1 Garand for my history report presentation. (holds up his fake Springfield)
me: Dude, that's a Springfield."
What the Hell is a 'Springfield'? I do believe that there is no such rifle named the 'Springfield'.
"(I brought him to my house and show him the IMFDB page for Uzis)"
THERE'S your problem. You're using IMFDB, a website so unreliable that it makes Encyclopedia Dramatica look like Chamber's Encyclopaedia.'
This one guy in particular wrote a list of stuff he hates. One of them was:
"(people who think) The SCAR is an American gun (nope, it's Belgian)"
Yep, the SCAR is so Belgian that it was developed at FNH-USA, the American branch of FN. Great logic there.
While FNH is of Belgian origin, a gun developed and made in the USA is strictly speaking an American gun.
Another segment from a 'hate list':
"I hate people who say a G11 is a pistol."
Perhaps this person would like to explain exactly what the H&K NBW is then.
(For those of you that don't know, the NBW is a G11 in pistol form. The G11 program spawned MANY variants before its closure due to the collapse of Communism. In fact, strictly speaking, there is no one gun named the "G11", but that's taking things out of context a little.)
Moar hate lists:
"He also think that the TAR-21 is Russian made, and it has iron sights (no dumbass, it has a built in Red Dot and is Israeli made!)"
"People who think that the TAR-21 has iron sights"
ALL Tavor-series weapons have iron sights, rendering this statement somewhat flawed.
- "Me:OK then who made the Glock 9mm?
- Dumbass #1:Duh it was Colt.
- Me:Wow... *facepalm times 10*"
- Guess what? There's no such gun as the 'Glock 9mm'.
"People who don't know the Vepr's shape"
WHAT DOES THIS EVEN MEAN? Something tells me he strung a completely random sentence together and threw in the Vepr assault rifle to try and sound like he knows what he's talking about.
"People who think the Type 100 doesn't fire the Nambu's cartridge"
Maybe they think that because the Nambu isn't a gun, it's the name of a person.
"People who think the HK21 can only be magazine-fed"
The HK21 can't be magazine-fed full stop.
"He also think that the AUG has Iron Sights"
It does. There are emergency iron sights on top of the in-built scope and there were even some early models made without a scope, but with built-in iron sights instead (below).
"I hate people who says the MP-44 is not an Assault Rifle"
Just a teensy fault here. It's actually a myth that the Stg 44 was ever designated 'MP-44'. It was originally called the MP43, back when it was being produced without Hitler's approval. They used the designation 'MP' (used only for submachine guns at the time) to disguise the project as another submachine gun. When Hitler did find out that the MP43 was not a submachine gun, he did not cancel the production of it and actually changed designation to 'Stg 44', or 'Sturmgewehr 1944'. So really, Hitler himself created the term which spawned a new category of firearms.
"I hate snobs that correct people saying, "It's not the Vector, its the Kriss SuperV." It's the TDI Vector, the Kriss SuperV being a part used in the gun."
Actually, Transformational Defense Industries (TDI) changed their name to KRISS USA some time ago. Therefore, the Vector's actual name is the Kriss Super V. TDI are nonexistent.
"In an official Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Strategy guide, the writer says the FAMAS is pump-action."
I actually flicked through the Strategy guide in an attempt to find this, but to no avail. OP has either mis-read or bought a dodgy bootleg strategy guide from a tramp. Or maybe I just can't read. In this guy's defense, though, the strategy guide does have a lot of faults.
"Alright, you know how people think the AUG HBAR is a LMG and CANNOT be anything else? Well I have a AUG A3 showed it to a friend of mine, he said "I didn't know you had a machine gun!!!" enough said."
I'll just leave this here...
"My brother actually thought that the AK-47 was a Chinese assault rifle. grrrr."
I don't blame him, really. Not everyone has to give a fuck about firearms.
Also, there are loads of Chinese AK variants. I'll list them, because I'm incredo-sad.
- Type 56
- Type 56-1
- Type 56-2
- Type 56-2 C
- Type 56-3
- Type 56-4
- Type 56-5 RPK
- Type 81
- Type 81-1
- Type 81 LMG
- Type 86
- Type 84
- Type 84-1
- Type 84-2
- Type 87
- Type 88S
- Type 88SB
Aaand there's probably more, but I'm bored of listing.
"An employee of a local airsoft shop keeps an airsoft gun he uses on people who call machine pistols such as the MAC-10 "Uzis." I've seen it happen. Respect."
Lock that sick bastard up. Shooting people with an airsoft gun because they can't differentiate an Uzi and an Ingram submachine gun is crazy. Next what? Running someone over because they don't know the difference between a Mitsubishi Colt and a Mini Cooper?
"I hate people calling the Winchester M1897 shotgun simply the "Trenchgun"".
I suppose you hate the soldiers that gave it that nickname during World War I, then.
"I hate people who under estimate the power of a pistol."
Truth be told, most people overestimate the power of pistols. In reality, there have been cases where people have been shot several times by handguns and have survived. I shit you not.
"Know what I hate?People who say the STG-44 is the MP44....."
I'm going to be incredibly snobby here - it's actually called the StG 44, not the STG-44. But this guy is essentially right.
"I hate when who refers the AK designs as "Accurate Killer" or something fake, as it stands for Automatic Kalashikov."
Who are these people who apparently think that AK stands for 'accurate killer'? Because I've never heard it referred to as such. Even newspaper journalists know that the 'K' stands for 'Kalashnikov'.
