    I thought this would be fun. Add your gun related predictions for the year 2020.

    I'll start.

    1) The Glock carbine will be entering production

    2) HK will still hate you

    3) Lasermax will be in the business of manufacturing weapons, not sights.

    4) The 9mm vs .45 debate will have been resolved.

    5) There will be Tannerite bullets. No, you won't be able to buy them.

    6) Campus carry will be mandatory for all college students.

    2020 - not 2040. It was a typo - my mistake. ;)

    By 2040, we will have moved to plasma ray guns, all projectile firing guns will be antiques and looked at with curiosity, just as we look at ancient spears. So we'll predict only 12 years into the future. ;)

    That’s only 12 years away, I doubt there will be that much change.:rolleyes:

    Along with New York (I hope). It will go from being known as the ‘Empire State’ to the ‘Totalitarian State.’

    The Garand Railgun will be in every hardware store (hey, we can dream, can't we?).

    And we'll finally have another President that doesn't hate the Constitution, because we will have invented a way to bring Teddy Roosevelt back to life, with John Q. Adams and James Monroe having been merged into one being to fill the role of Sec. of State.

    In the year 2020 (someone cue the Conan O' Brien "Year 2000 theme please):
    John Moses Browning will officially be worshipped by loyal gunnies everywhere.
    Glock, trying to one up everyone will start making guns out of vinyl, instead of plastic.
    Smith and Wesson will replace the dreaded lock, with the more PC friendly "double lock".
    STI will gain significant market share due to the brave step of refusing to sell guns to **********
    Speaking of **********, they will ban guns outright, thus ensuring that there is no crime whatsoever there ever again, cuz it's all the fault of ebil scawy guns (Also they will ban pools, fatty foods, automobiles, meat, vegetables, and anyone who doesn't use the word "trippy")
    World famous author Larry Correia will finish his much anticipated "Monster Hunter International: Volume 36"
    Oleg will still get dozens of attractive women to model for his pictures.

    We will probably have directed energy weapons, but the S&W Model 10 and the Colt 1911 will still be around. Probably the SAA, too.

    We will have ray gun vs. projectile gun debates, while the 9mm vs. .45 debate still rages on.

    All military forces will use 2mm rifles.

    Armed citizens will either be welcome and accepted members of society, or will be hiding in the hills and swamps. I see it going one way or the other.

    The rest of the world may finally have enough and start to re-claim their liberties.

    Everyone will STILL not be driving flying cars, and fast food restaurants will STILL not be staffed by robots.

    MidwayUSA will have been bought by Amazon.com, who will have been bought by Google.

    They'll sell Google brand range bags.
