TCTI: Too Crazy To Ignore
Dave Ross

Gun Appreciation Day

I know it's Gun Appreciation Day, so I thought I would highlight the part of gun ownership that a lot of people who want to control them don't understand. They're fun.

This young man is put up a video demonstrating his Dirty Harry replica:

And when you get older, you seek different types of fun -- but it's still fun. I found this video that shows you how to take a semi-automatic rifle, and using an accessory called a bump stock, make it fire almost like a fully automatic weapon.

Fully automatic weapons have been strictly controlled since 1986 and are very expensive -- up to $15,000. But with this method, you can get pretty close for only a few hundred.

And it's perfectly legal, at least for now. By the way, if you're keeping track, those last 24 rounds took 2.37 seconds to fire.
