    Guess that firearm UK Daily Mail Edition!

    Hey everybody.

    I came across this picture. http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2011/...13_634x424.jpg

    while reading the news on Libya. Now the UK Daily Mail Newspaper's caption identifies the weapon in the man's hand as "an American Sub-machine gun", but I'm pretty sure it has a CO2 cartridge attached to it, and I'd almost swear it was a paintball gun.

    Is this supreme journalistic firearm ignorance, or is that some obscure weapon from WWI that I've never heard of, or what?

    That is CO2 but it's not a paintball gun. I don't know what it is.
    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    Duk, I thought I had a decent sense of humor.

    You, my good man, should be doing standup comedy, making some serious money!
