I know having a bullet with your name on it is a bad thing. I don’t know what this means.

Wow. Jeb! just blew my expectations for election-cycle pathos output clear into earth orbit. I’d say readings in the .8 kicked puppy range.

This sort of thing might have approached the approximate vicinity of ‘amusing’ if it were accompanied by the right political persona(say, Arnold Schwarzenegger having a .50 AE Desert Eagle engraved with ‘The Governator’); but Jeb has always been the allegedly-the-slightly-smarter-brother-of-the-fake-cowboy-actually-from-Connecticut. Who does he think he’s fooling here?

Hey, I have one of those, only in stainless and 9mm. Fabrique National FNX. It fancy because it’s in French. (Though Belgian Company. Used to make bicycles.)

I don’t have my name on it.

Means you’re desperate as holy shit to appeal to psychopaths.

Am I seeing this wrong or is the safety off?

I’m certainly no authority on firearms but I thought you’re only supposed to put the safety switch in the “down” position with the little red dot showing when you’re about to put a bullet in something.

ETA: @Mister44, since you’ve got one of these can you confirm one way or another?

I do find it funny that he’s tweeting “America” about a Belgian gun. I guess there’s a factory in SC?

Yes it is off - but the hammer is down - that is decocked AND it is empty. How do you know that? The FNX has a neat little loaded chamber indicator. The tip of the extractor will poke out with a red dot if it was loaded.

(Rule #1 kids, treat all guns as if they are loaded, always point in a safe direction, always check if it is loaded when you pick it up.)

So no, not violating safety rules, as one doesn’t generally keep an unloaded gun on safety, and many guns can’t be put on safety unless cocked (e.g. the 1911 and AR-15)

Yes. They also are the main makers of the SAW machine gun for the army, and with Colt make most of he M4s they military uses. Yes they have a factory in the US and most of the guns sold in the US are made here.

Also, they were the arms of choice for Stargate Command.

If I ever move back to the US I’ll be purchasing some nice firearms and maybe get parts of Psalm 137 engraved on em. Especially the end of that Psalm.
