Roast the FN-49
You paid thousands of dollars to buy a worse FAL. Congratulations.
The other classic European semi-auto rifle but without the fun of the MAS-49/56. And a gun that requires a lot more parts, pain and abuse to get into than any other classic semi-auto rifle. It's a rifle that endears itself to what I call "collector coping".
“THIS GUN’S KILLED A MAN AYUP. SERVED INNA WAR YKNOW.”
After the success of the GP-35, Dieudonne Saive began work on the next project. The lofty full power semi-automatic rifle that every military kinda-sorta wanted for decades. While initially getting close in 1937 and 38, the invasion of Belgium caused that plan to go out the window for a bit. While he’d try to keep the design going in England, going so far as to get interest in it as a Lee-Enfield replacement under the ‘SLEM-1′ moniker was lost with the end of the war. Returning home, he would finish the design and have it ushered in 1949. While somewhat popular, his other light automatic rifle prototype would begin to nibble on it’s market share. Light Automatic Rifle. What’s that in French, y’know the language the Belgians speak?
Oh that’ll do it.
Feeling like it’s wedged in the end of the Pre-WWII era and the new Cold War, the FN-49 is the bad version of the MAS-49/56. Both are similar beasts, yes but the MAS isn’t as jank as this. I mean it’s a 10 shot fixed mag that you’re expected to top off with stripper clips and then to use the FAL style non-reciprocating charging handle to make it run. It’s long, heavy and boring to use with little to no endearment factor in it. I mean it’s a classic long rifle sure, but it doesn’t have the same pomp and circumstance of other milsurp rifles. This thing is just perfectly fine in the worst way possible, and you can see that with how it’s only buyers were “we have bolt actions and FN connections”.

Can we talk about the Olympic sharpshooter that just won with one hand in her pocket and a Witcher medallion on her belt? Because I love her.

Since i posted my cowboy magician, ive gotten alot of comments that he should have a gun-wand. and i have been working on that! So this gun works the exact same as a magician's wand, but to cast spells you have to shoot spell bullets. Just as effective as a normal wand, other than being INCREDIBLY LOUD

sorry sorry but its just like. being in denial about your love for your best friend until you know it can save him and also that you won’t be around long enough to have your heart broken because you know he’d tell you to fuck off otherwise. and then seeing the love in his eyes as you’re taken and being taken away realizing you were wrong the entire time

Re: Rust set shooting
Even if you never plan to handle a gun, you should know Cooper’s Rules, especially if you live in the USA. Y’all know me, I hate rules, but these I follow. Firearms are killing tools, this is how to interact with them safely:
#1: All firearms are loaded until you personally verify they are not. (Doesn’t matter if it’s the person who loves you most and they swear on all the gods that the gun they’re handing you is empty. They made a mistake and it’s loaded and ready to fire until YOU see an empty chamber.)
#2: Never aim the muzzle of a firearm at anything you are not prepared to destroy. (Just pointing a gun at someone is a form of assault.)
#3: Do not touch the trigger until you are ready to fire. (A negligent homicide still produces a funeral.)
#4: Know exactly what your target is and what is behind it for the full distance your bullets can cover. (When you squeeze that trigger, YOU are responsible for whatever happens. “I was aiming at this, I didn’t mean to hit that” will raise no one from the dead.)
Anyone who handles a firearm should know these rules and stick to them.
