That everyone has an uncle who was a Marine sniper because no matter what
gun you own half the people you talk to about it's "Uncle Charlie had one &"
(a) "couldn't hit the side of a barn if he was inside the barn with his",
(b) "could hit hummingbirds on the wing at 50 yards with his".
I guess technically this isn't an oxymoron but I find it amusing.

Non-gun Oxymorons:
Common sense. Common courtsey. Liberal.

Gross Obsenities
Responsibility.Work Ethic.

Pardon my getting offtopic & ranting.

Actually, it's SIG--not "Sig". It's an acronym. Sorry...pet peeve. I equated the whole concept of the "Sig" misnomer within a post about "gun oxymorons" to throwing stones while living in a glass house

This has always gotten me about revolvers!

Single-Action (yet you have to cock the hammer and pull the trigger to fire a shot - that's TWO actions.)

Double-Action (you pull the trigger, it goes BANG! ONE action!)

Call me a dummy, but one would think it would be the other way around!

I was just reading a reloading thread and the following word combination struck me as funny: QUALITY PROGRESSIVE

Maybe it's just me but I was giggling like a kid thinking about all the gun blow up threads, most of which are traced to reloads produced on what they term a QUALITY PROGRESSIVE reloader. :eek: :scrutiny:

Husker1911, IIRC, watching a History Channel program on firearms of Nazi Germany, I think it mentioned that the German military was really into handguns, and maybe that is why so many where "captured" or "liberated" during and after WWII.

Something else I did not know about the German Army, is that each squad in an infantry unit had a light machine gun assigned. The squad was built around the machine gun and protecting it. Machine guns where the MG34 or famous MG42, with its incredible rate of fire.

So, between the MG, battle rifles or assault rifles, sub-machine guns and handguns the average WWII German squad seemed to have quite a bit of small arms firepower available.

Yeppers, thats also why they didnt look into small arms for the infantryman very much (The 98 mauser being used through most of the war)

Just imagine if they had had the STG 44 at the beginning of the war...quite possible of their tactics had not revolved around MG's...
