    "Military rifles" are drop safe when they are in proper working condition. Most rifles available to the public are not "Mil-Spec". Colt was one of the few back when I was collecting AR's.

    Regardless, when I give advice on here I'm very careful with my words as I know my audience will - on average - have very basic weapons knowledge.

    When the clown attempted to "correct" me he was unwittingly sending a dangerous message to the average Joe.

    Yes, some guns are "drop safe". Not all guns are drop safe which was my exact original quote. All guns should be considered NOT drop safe because they shouldn't be dropped/bumped/banged - particularly while loaded. AD's come in all different shapes and sizes. Some are mechanical, some are due to improper manufacture/out-of-spec/non-mil-spec, some are due to improper maintenance, some are due to poor/old design, some are due to trigger group modifications/insufficient sear engagement, some are due to improperly sized ammo/seated primers, and most are user error. The moment you think something could never happen, it will. I've heard it all.

    Your typical American owns an older shotgun or hunting rifle, not the latest and greatest military rifle from Colt.

    This is all I'm going to say on the issue. Signing off. Have a safe weekend.

    • My son is building me an ar. Not sure if it will be drop safe, but I'm sure it will be fun. The little sh!t has become quite the gunsmith. I want him to build me a 9 and a .380. He doesn't want to build a .380 because he says they're sh!tty guns, I want one just for giggles.
      There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

      • He just built this, he has better ones he's built. I couldn't get into his gun safe, he has this one in mine. I want one similar to this just to pass time when the prairie dogs aren't active. See.20200731_143542.jpg

            Hey Pvt. Pyle... why don't you go shake your head over a nice cold air vent.

            Don't ever attempt to correct me again.

            I'd recommend not staring down the barrel of your weapon next time you start banging it on the ground...

            You are welcome.

            P.S. Apologies to the readers who were temporarily "informed" on the issue without proper context.

            READERS: ALWAYS CARRY A LOADED WEAPON SECURELY! NEVER BANG IT ON ANYTHING WHEN A ROUND IS CHAMBERED.
            Just quoting so everyone can see your “exact quote” where you said “not all guns are drop safe”.

            Care to point that out?

              Definitely not a bullpup lol.

              Banging a gun on the ground stock first can cause accidental discharges. He's not wrong about that. The older the gun, the better the chance of having a trick firing pin. I have a Yugoslavian Tokarev 7.62x25mm pistol. It's from the 50's. Cleaned all the Cosmoline out of it. For people that don't know, the Soviets used to dip their weapons in Cosmoline to store them. It's like waxy oil. You heat it up and it melts off or you can use chemicals to remove it. But since the Soviets were crazed weapons manufacturers, AND stored them very well, we have an endless supply of surplus collectors to purchase. :)

              Back to the story... the Tokarev is ***** dangerous. Once that thing is loaded you point it in the direction you want to fire and empty the magazine. NEVER carry it around loaded. If you drop it... well... you're gonna need some luck. That bullet penetrates like a MoFo. It's a poor man's 5.7x28mm. It will defeat body armor.
              Maybe it was this one? Nope!
