Chris Kyle and his friend ,Chad Littlefield are dead because of a man called Eddie Ray Ruoth .

Authorities said 38-year-old Chris Kyle, a former top Navy SEAL sniper and author of the best-selling book “American Sniper,” was shot to death with his friend at a Texas shooting range on Feb. 2, 2013.

Kyle, 38, and Littlefield, 35, had taken Routh to the range to try to help him work through his PTSD. Littlefield was Kyle’s neighbor and “workout buddy,” .

It is unclear what Routh’s motive was for the murders. Police say he was unemployed and “may have been suffering from some type of mental illness from being in the military.

Kyle had 160 confirmed combat kills from a distance of up to 2,100 yards. He holds the record for a U.S. military sniper, previously set at 93 by Marine sniper Carlos Hathcock during the Vietnam war.

With sorrow and regret , Gun-Zilla! would like to extend extreme condolences to the families of Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield .

Gone but never forgotten .

hi-point995-3

 

Hi-Point semi-automatic pistols are polymer-framed and generally regarded as simple, inexpensive handguns .

Based on a blowback design, Hi-Point pistols do not have a breech-locking system like most handguns. Instead they have large, heavy slides that hold the breech closed through sheer mass .

While making the pistols heavy, this design also makes them mechanically simple and easy to maintain .

Most self-loading pistols can be field-stripped without the use of any tools. However, Hi-Point pistols require a punch or a small screwdriver to remove a pin in the receiver, in order to permit slide removal (and thus enable field-stripping).

Hi-Point carbines use a polymer stock, stamped sheet metal receiver cover, and a receiver and bolt cast from zamak-3. The barrel is steel and button rifled using a 1-10″ right hand twist.

Some people are wary of Hi-Points because of the use of zinc alloy (zamak-3) castings in much of their construction. However, parts made from zamak-3 in Hi-Point guns (receiver and bolt/slide) are low-stress components that do not require the strength of steel. Higher stress components in Hi-Points, like the barrel and other small parts, are made of steel.

Hi-Point firearms have manual thumb safeties and an integral drop safety that prevents firing in the event that the firearm is dropped. Until recently, all Hi-Point products except the 995 (9mm) carbine had a last-round lock open and magazine disconnect safety, preventing firing unless a magazine was in the gun. With the replacement of the original 9mm carbine with the new 995 TS model, all pistols and carbines now have these features.

More rape in India .

Rape anywhere should be a castrating offence period . Or considering how cheap rope is lets have some good old fashioned hangings !!! .

EXECUTION-IRAN3 or perhaps a firing squad NA 1944 French-collaborator-executed too harsh ?, too bad !! these sick individuals should be put to death without fail . No more mercy should be shown to them than they showed their victims . We have to do something so harsh so violent and graphic , that normal people would puke on their own shoes if they had to watch . Punishments made public and gruesome so the whole world

would think twice before comitting any crime .castration3

I may only be a simple monster with a shotgun but it seems to me that its high time to put away the kid gloves and start dealing with rapists harshly and with finality .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By now you are painfully aware of the 28 people who lost thier lives at the hands of a madman . 20 young children and 8 adults who are no longer with us because of one sick demented individual . You have by now read all the accounts in the papers or heard the differing opinions on television , the why and the how and the questions that will never be attached to a sane answer . Works of insanity coupled with the forces of evil will never make sense to those of us who are possesed of sanity and logic .

To all the friends and families of the victims , It saddens me greatly to admit that no matter how hard I try there is nothing I can say or do to assuage your grief or ease your pain .

All I can do as a rational and caring individual is to add my own tears to the river of sorrow and offer up a heart-felt prayer in hopes that the Almighty will ease your suffering .

dragunov 1

 

a semi-automatic sniper rifle/designated marksman rifle chambered in 7.62×54mmR and developed in the Soviet Union.
The Dragunov was designed as a squad support weapon, since according to Soviet and Soviet-derived military doctrines the long-range engagement ability was lost to ordinary troops when submachine guns and assault rifles (which are optimized for close-range and medium-range, rapid-fire combat) were adopted. For that reason it was originally named Dragunov’s Semi-automatic Rifle.

It was selected as the winner of a contest that included three competing designs – by Sergei Simonov, by Aleksandr Konstantinov and by Yevgeny Dragunov. Extensive field testing of the rifles conducted in a wide range of environmental conditions resulted in Dragunov’s proposal being accepted into service in 1963. An initial pre-production batch consisting of 200 rifles was assembled for evaluation purposes, and from 1964 serial production was carried out by Izhmash.

Since then, the Dragunov has become the standard squad support weapon of several countries, including those of the former Warsaw Pact. Licensed production of the rifle was established in China (Type 79 and Type 85) and Iran (as a direct copy of the Chinese Type 79).

The Dragunov is an original rifle design for several reasons. First, it was not meant for highly trained and specialized sniper teams, but rather for designated marksmen, spread in every basic infantry unit. In every platoon of Warsaw Pact troops, there was at least one Dragunov rifle marksman. In the German Democratic Republic arsenals alone, there were almost 2,000 Dragunov rifles, while in many Western armies there was not even a single sniper rifle except in special forces units (as example, in the Italian Army until the 1990s), but in Warsaw Pact troop formations, the Dragunov marksmen were widespread among the regular units. To fulfill this role the rifle is relatively light for a sniper rifle but well balanced, making it easier to use in a dynamic battle. It also is a semi-automatic rifle, a rare feature for accuracy oriented rifles in the 1960s (except for customized ordnance, like M1 Garands), to allow rapid fire and quicker engagement of multiple targets. In order to fire effective API ammunition, its accuracy potential was slightly downgraded by shortening the twist rate, another uncommon priority for a pure sniper rifle. Its precision is good but not exceptional, also because it has a relatively light barrel profile. Like an assault rifle, the rifle has mounts on the barrel to fix a bayonet. The standard AKM bayonet can even be used to cut barbed wire. Lastly, the rifle was meant to be a relatively cheap mass produced firearm.

These features and unusual characteristics were driven by the tactical use doctrine of Dragunov armed marksman which was; from (just behind) the first line targeting high value targets of opportunity and providing special long-distance disrupting and suppressive fire on the battlefield, even with sudden close encounters with enemy troops in mind. A relatively small number of marksmen could assist conventional troops by combating or harassing valuable targets and assets such as: enemy key personnel like officers, non-commissioned officers and radio operators, exposed tank commanders, designated marksmen and snipers, machinegun teams, anti-tank warfare teams, etc.

The NTW-20 is a South African anti-materiel rifle or large-caliber sniper rifle, developed by Denel’s Mechem division in the 1990s. The weapon was designed by Tony Neophytou , and intended for deployment against a wide variety of targets, including parked aircraft, telecommunication masts, power lines, missile sites, radar installations, refineries, satellite dishes, gun emplacements, bunkers and personnel, using a range of specialized projectiles. As with other weapons of this type, it can also be used for counter sniping and ordnance disposal .

Development of the system began in August 1995 under the Aerotek name and a working prototype was ready for testing four and a half months later. This rapid progress was made possible by Neophytou’s extensive expertise in the field of recoil reduction systems, having worked on helicopter turrets in the past. In order to further reduce the amount of research and development, the project recycled the barrel, bolt and barrel extension of the existing Vektor GA1 automatic cannon The rifle was accepted into service with the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) in 1998.

Denel was also contracted to supply various weapon systems for the Indian Armed Forces, including Anti-material rifles and Self-propelled howitzers. However, following allegations that it had paid kickbacks to secure a deal for anti-material rifles, Denel was black-listed by the government. Subsequently, the Ordnance Factory Tiruchirapalli (OFT), in association with the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), began developing an indigenous antimaterial rifle called Vidhwansak, which borrowed heavily from the Denel NTW-20. The development of Vidhwansak was completed in November 2005.

FEATURES :
The NTW 20/14.5 is one of the few firearms in existence that allow the changing of the caliber without completely disassembling and reworking the weapon. Switching between the two calibers of the NTW (20mm and 14.5mm) requires changing the bolt, barrel, sighting gear and magazine. (A third variant, the NTW 20×110 has also been developed, but is not designed for barrel caliber switching.) Caliber switching the NTW 20/14.5 can be accomplished simply in the field without specialized tools. The magazine protrudes from the left side of the receiver. The NTW can be disassembled and packed into two backpacks for carriage. A muzzle brake is fitted on the end of the barrel which absorbs an estimated 50%-60% of recoil. This is further supplemented by a buffered slide in the receiver.

OF GUN-ZILLA

On Saturday in Aleppo Syria , the country’s largest city and former business capital
where Syrian rebels are fighting Government forces. A civilian was shot in the stomach
by a Syrian Sniper, the civilian who was walking near the front line and trying his best
to avoid confrontation, when he was struck by the Snipers bullet. At present it is unclear
if he survived the shooting.
Considering the fact that the Government Forces have distinct uniforms i have to wonder
what kind of idiots the Syrians are employing as Snipers , seeing as how all Sniper rifles have
scopes how is it that he failed to make the distinction between a Military uniform and common
street attire ?.
The civilian who carried no weapon and posed no threat was shot anyway, was the idiot Sniper
bored or just had a bad case of itchy trigger finger ?.

To the Syrians i will say this : train your personel and make sure they have an I.Q. higher than a grape ! .
To the civilians i will say this : learn to seek cover and do not venture out in the open .
