the SP8/XM8 (im talking about both paintball and actual guns here)

they both look nice but the preformance needs some major overhauling on...personally, i HATE plastic guns

as for the eggys, they are REALLY prone to breaking, its true, most of the ones ive seen have some sort of glue or tape keeping them together and the only gun i could really picture one on is an Invert Mini, now im not saying that it looks GOOD on a Mini, it just looks better on that gun than ALOT of the others

oh and my 3 favorite guns of all have to be the G36_C, G36_D, and the eouropean masterpiece: the AI_AW

Yep, I haven't heard anything about it. My roomie tests out things of this nature, and he has said nothing. So that is leading me to believe that it has not been reopened.

My "associate" is a Second Lieutenant in a certain area and he isn't exactly telling me this legally. Thats all I'm going to say. Call me a liar, don't care.

Ha ha ha ha a second Lieutenant. Well unless he works at Natic or Aberdine Prooving Grounds I wouldnt put much faith in him. No one in the Fleet does either.

What are the problems with this response?  Let me count the issues.
  • You supported your statement with the equivalent of "I can't prove it, but it's the truth."
  • Your source is a Second Lieutenant; the lowest form of officer life.
  • The credibility or your source, if it exists, is questionable.
    • This officer told you something illegally.
    • This indicates an integrity problem on his/her part.
      • Shared restricted information.
      • Apparently for no reason at all.  (Maybe to show how cool he/she is-possible maturity issue as well.)
    • This means one of two things:
      • You either made up this "source."
      • Or the source exists but is not credible.

Actually, it's the same thing; paygrade O-1.

Please god noooooo not some lesson. Seriously. I presented you with information, told you all the details of the extent, please just dont tell me what I already know. Just think what you want. I'm sick of people trying to sound/act/be a smart ass on a forum.

Ironic part bolded.

  • Humorous responses/clever insults = forum smart ass
  • Making an unsupported claim = foolish
  • Refuting an unsupported claim with evidence = effective refutation
  • Sticking to unsupported claim and referencing "secret" evidence = silly and ineffective
  • Posting an explanation of what exactly is wrong with someone's unsupported claim and "secret" evidence = effective refuting and possibly educational to the claim maker if they are willing to learn
  • Whining when unsupported claim and "secret" evidence is discredited = childish
  • Assuming that people post refutations just to prove the original poster wrong = amazingly self-absorbed--when i post a correction it is so that other innocent readers are not led astray by incorrect information.  (Proving the original poster wrong is just a fortuitous bonus.)
  • Making a statement along the lines of ". . . don't tell me what I already know.  Just think what you want."  rather than attempting to counter-refute the contradictory points that have been both presented and supported = really, really silly.  This is the equivalent of saying "I am immune to facts and logic and prefer to continue publicly wallowing in my own ignorance."
The above was a step-by-step evaluation of why most people are going to discount your statement on this subject.  It was (for the most part) non smart-ass in nature.  So that you will know the difference in the future I have included a smart-ass reply to your evidence below.  Please note how it elegantly utilizes logic and assertions similar to your own to highlight the inherent absurdities of your position.

I know the general who is in charge of U.S. Military Small Arms Procurement.  He personally told me that the XM8 project is permanently shut down.  He also mentioned that your Lt friend was relieved of all responsibilities related to the program for being a drunkard who talked about classified information in bars and pilfered ammunition for his personal use.

Mack,

I know your trying to inform everyone not to believe everything  they hear but you conduct yourself in such an offensive manner. Trying to have a structured mini essay on why my source isn't credible. I just threw the idea out there that the XM8 may be re-opened. You guys always jump at the opportunity to make yourselves seem higher and more intelligent. Sure, you have a good understanding of most general things, but it would be GRAVELY appreciated if you didn't try to act higher then someone else rather then educate in a respectfull way. That's all I ask.

There is no such thing calld a G36D, they only made G36, G36E (with single 1.5X scope), G36K (Carbine version with standard dual scope mount), G36C (Compact or Commando version with open (iron) sights installed on the Picatinny rail).

inless they came out with a new one that i dident know about.
