    I am confused... why do guys have this phrase put on the inside of the dust cover - it says <something quite offensive> -- Sam.

    Those were from some of Noveske's uppers. I could never figure that one out.

    How 'bout a "Not Safe For Work/Family" warning on that Tad?

    Thanks.

    I reckon it's a not-so-subtle insult directed at the recipient of whomever the owner of said rifle is shooting at.

    I want one.

    It's from "Team America, World Police."

    Actually Tad, if you read the thread you linked to, they explain where it came from.

    Apparently it is a line from a movie.

    But so what? It's from a movie. I don't put Braveheart's war speech on mine - what does it mean? It doesn't really explain other than to say 'it's from Team America'. I guess I kinda-sorta get it though, with hankdatank's explanation - directed to the recipient of the bullet... yeah, because you holding a gun and pointing at him wouldn't reveal an ominous intent until the dust cover flies open.... just pretty stupid if you ask me.

    Exactly! That's why I could never figure it out.

    That will get you to the scene in question. It's wildly not safe for work and contains swearing, violence, and puppets.

    Im gonna assume you are probably a little older. I know several soldiers who would put that on their rifle if they could.

    As part of the younger generation of soldiers and shooters I can see why this is popular. We grew up in a media world. Spend some time with Soldiers or Marines and you are bound to hear one liners from movies and TV being used. We used <deleted> -- Sam a lot when I was in. Thats a line from the Chapelle Show.

    I will buy one of thos dust covers.

    There isn't a whole lot you can do to differentiate your dustcover from any other dustcover, except laser engrave something on it.

    You may not have bought one (and neither did I), but judging by the pictures over at arfcom, lots and lots of people bought them, so clearly there was a market.

    Asked, answered, and marginal THR material, at best.
