The mainstream media has its knickers in a collective twist about Slide Fire‘s new product: a rifle specifically designed to maximize its semi-auto-that-thinks-its-a-machine-gun technology with belt-fed fun. The company’s no stranger to hopolophobic hysteria; House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi herself mentioned the Slide Fire stock in her post-Newtown anti-gun agitprop. Luckily that didn’t lead to any action from the ATF, which has given Slide Fire’s system a pass, allowing it to grow like kudzu in a north Georgia rain forest. And so . . .
SFS BFR, baby! Slide Fire sales and marketing manager Brandon Renner claims the SFS BFR will be available this fall for a mere $6,000. “It sprays like a fire hose,” Renner told money.cnn.com. “We recommend no more than 30 rounds on the belt, but one person could make it as big as they want.” (There’s a sexual innuendo there but I’m not touching it. So to speak.)
Meanwhile, I like how CNN says “Machine guns are illegal in the U.S. for most people . . .” implying that you have to be someone very special indeed to be “allowed” to own one. Well it looks like that’s about to change. TTAG’s on the case.
