Skip to comments.TIME Magazine is a piece of CRAP
Posted on 01/20/2013 10:26:34 AM PST by Gabrial
The 1/28/13 edition of TIME hits a new low with the "Gunfighters" lead story. I refuse to read this anti-gun dribble, but I fanned the article and looked at the graphics. The usual idiotic crap. The graphic on page 28 mistakenly identifies an AR-15 magazine as a "clip". On page 32 a picture of an AK syle rifle is mistakenly identified as an AR-15. The stupidest thing I have EVER seen is on page 41. In bold letters in the middle of the page it states "There are 600-round magazines that sell for as low as $25.95."
600 round mags. Really? Is there anyone out there that actually beleives this crap???
Time Magazine has been crap for YEARS!
Yes, Low Information Voters will believe that crap.
Who could have known?
What Slime Magazine failed to mention was that the 600-round magazines are for Airsoft guns.
yes...but did they make the guns blacker? (snark)
Probably talking about a drum...and they must have found some corner of the internet that claimed to sell them for $25.
An honest journalist would have actually purchased one, as proof.....but they’re not honest, are they.
Gabrial, had I not lost ALL my guns in a boating accident 15 miles out in the ocean I’d be looking for a few of those 600 round mags for $29.95.
Never enough to be prepared to fight back them U.N.blue helmets.
Both Time subscribers are going to love this stuff.
There is a serious problem in America, and it is clearly getting much, much worse: In fact there are several.
There is a “media” in America. It is biased, focused and anti-conservative.
There is “entertainment” in America. It is equally biased, and equally anti-conservative.
There is “education” in America with likewise, gives only one side of the story.
In each of these areas, the bias is now blatant, unmistakable yet to this point, remains unopposed.
That is our problem.
Why are not, we opposing all these blatant problems?
For crying out loud.
At 600 rds. you’d need a belt fed weapon, a shooter and a feeder. As far as I know there aren’t even any standard AKs that are belt fed. That, of course, doesn’t rule out the Russians using the basic AK mechanism for a crew served weapon.
If “people” voted for Obammy...they will believe anything.
Not exactly crap. Just what you wipe crap with...
“What Slime Magazine failed to mention was that the 600-round magazines are for Airsoft guns.”
The graphic in the middle of the page 41 says:
“Price of a 40-round magazine for a Bushmaster AR-15 $26
(picture of AR mag)
There are 600 round magazines for as low as $25.95”
I picked up one when I was home for the holidays, someone has a subscription. What struck me is how few pages there were. This is a cost cutting sign and IMO a sign the magazine in question is not healthy financially.
“...using the basic AK mechanism for a crew served weapon.”
Fire 600 rounds and while you are changing magazines, you could also take time to change your melted barrel.
LOL. Great graphics!
I caved in and read the article. In the entire article there is no reference whatsoever to Airsoft or any other sort of toy gun. Only AR-15s, AKs, etc.
These people are either totally incompetent or dishonest.
More likely a combination of both.
Starve the Liberal Media.
There's just so much outrage one can stand in this world.
Yes, it always has been crap.
Well, you may want to look into a gym membership. I did some quick math and a loaded 600 round AK Mag would weigh about 60-70 pounds. I would not recommend it for concealed carry...
Don’t be too comforted by their dwindling circulation. The magazine will sit in tens of thousands of lobbies and waiting rooms for months on end and its contents will be accepted as truth by millions of (mostly) women.
My nominee for “Vanity Title of the Year.”
I think I am. I never had a subscription. They started sending it to my house for free. So far I have called, emailed, and sent them a letter asking them to take me off their subsciption list. They still send it. A bizarre business model in my opinion.
Lots of people can’t afford 600 rounds of ammo. Man, liberals are just plain dumb. And I don’t mean just the politicians.
like carrying around three or five hundred dollars worth of pennies to go to the 7 11
You give them WAY TOO MUCH credit. They just make this stuff up out of whole cloth and then refuse to admit it. They know that no other media outlet will take them to task for it. In fact, NPR will likely use the TIME article as a source for their reporting.
You are exactly right! The article’s authors may or may not actually believe what they have written but that isn’t the point. This is propaganda no different from any propaganda from any of history’s worst regimes. This is intended to agitate the ignorant. This is the kind of propaganda that is used to foment hatred and violence against Time’s opponents. Go into the archives of anti-semitic propaganda from 30s and 40s Germany—it is the same stuff. We have never experienced this in the US before. You have to look to history’s despotic regimes to learn about it—it can lead to terrible human cost.
However,if you want a long barrel, bipod-mounted, magazine-fed LMG with an AK-47-pattern mechanism, you are talking about the RPK:
If you want a long barrel, bipod-mounted, belt-fed LMG in 7.62x39mm, you are talking about the RPD:
I think an earlier poster solved the mystery...airsoft apparently has a 600 round magazine....and since none of these lib outlets seem to retain firearms experts, they don’t know any better. Of course any attempt to correct them will be shouted down.
An Airsoft round is literally that. It’s a plastic ball the size of a BB.
