It’s like Barbie for men.” – certified firearms instructor Ben Shim quoted in Gun silencer sales are booming [at cnn.com] Post Views: 12 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Mark and Patricia McCloskey Went Shopping For New Guns Days After Plea Deal JUNETEENTH/FATHER’S DAY WEEKEND IN CHICAGO: 8 Murdered, 49 Wounded in America’s Largest Open-Air Range [VIDEO] ‘I’m A Gun Owner But…’: Joe Walsh Backs Fred Guttenberg’s Launch Of ‘Dads For Gun Safety’ 33 COMMENTS Has Ben ever seen Ken? Because that boy’s got no gun. Reply How do you know? 🙂 Reply I think Ken would be an NAA mini-revolver. Reply “Legos for adults” is probably more accurate. If Ben actually had daughters he’d realize that the clothes and shoes are lost (or vacuumed up) in the first week and the Barbies spend the rest of their existence buck naked… Reply Legos ARE for adults! Reply Thank you. Now I dont have to say it. Reply I am with James. ARs are another kind of LEGO you can say. Sorry to be a wet blanket, but “It’s like Barbie for Men” is already taken: https://danieljmitchell.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/gun-control21.jpg Reply Not just for men. My wife NEVER owed a Barbie (hated dolls), but has a very nice tricked out M4. Reply My safe is painted pink and says “Dream House” on it. I also have a little pink corvette I like to put a gun in every now and then and make “vrooooom” sounds as I push it around on the kitchen tile. Sometimes they go on dates but right now my Spike’s lower is mad at the Umlaut lower for seeing it out with the DMPS lower last weekend so there’s a lot of tension. Reply many LOL’s were at had at this comment. Bravo, sir. Bravo. Reply Why not mr. Potatohead for men? Because he had to take a punch at our manhood, that’s why. No doubt while wearing skinny jeans. Reply Ben, we need to take a few corners off your man card. Reply http://zombiemfg.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/AR15-Barbie-Doll-for-Guys.jpg Reply Hyperlink is broken. Spelled CNN wrong, too. Reply D’oh! Fixed. Reply AR = Barby AK = Ken M-1A/M-14 = Arnold Reply I woulda used Chuck Norris or Clint Eastwood instead of Arnold, but yep I agree. Reply Old joke been around for years. Still funny to me. Reply That picture sets me all aflutter! Reply NO the AR is like a 12′ GI JOE with all the cool shit on it. Barbie didnt make George Patton, The Big Red 1 Infantryman or Snake Eyes. I would prefer that my toys come with a realistic little M-1 Garand if I HAVE to pick 🙂 The Big joes had rifles with little detachable magazines that would slide in and out, eat your heart out ken. Reply Ken could be a .9mm Reply “The AR-15 weapons platform is very modular. It’s like Barbie for men.” Sounds like fun – let me try! “Gabba-gabba spandex is the new blue jeans. Go vegan!” Reply I much prefer the comparison to Mr. Potato Head. You start with the main body (receiver, upper set) then add the Eyes (Optics), Arms (grips and stocks), Legs (bi-pod), Mouth (Barrel with a Flash hider, compensator, Suppressor) With the Barbie you’re stuck with what you bought. You just get to wrap it in different fabric. Reply ARs are a whole lot of fun to configure. The 5.56 is a cool caliber, and so are the 6.8 SPC and 300 BLK. Shooting the .50 Beowulf is a blast. I’d happily give the 6.5 Grendel a try. Reply So maybe the AR should be Ken because you get to pick the d!ck size? Reply Nah Lego is a much better comparison. Look at the rails & optics. That’s one reason the antis are afraid of Ar’s. They seem like toys( for big boys). Reply That would mean AKs are more like Monster High dolls. We don’t get everything that blonde bitch does, but we look mean as hell. …what? Reply The wife manages a good size LGS, she likes to call it “Gun Gay,” because, “Seriously, I have never seen men so closely look at colors to make sure their black, greens or tans match…and then you guys get to the accessories section and it’s like you’re all dressing for the spring cotillion…” Reply ROTFLMAOPIMP!! Thanks for the Best Belly Laugh All Week! Reply The true Barbie for Men™ is inflatable. Reply So is the G3 a transformer? Reply What turned me on to the AR platform, having a mechanical background, is it reminded me of the small black Chevrolet,,,easy to work on, interchange-ability, etc Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
