Now about your camo choices... The thrift store here actually had a huge donation of jackets and pants with that same pattern. They had a information sheet out about it. I could have sworn they said it was from Finland. I think from Tank drivers in Finland

Makes me wonder why do you need to ware camo in a Tank. You are already hid in the tank and invisible. Don't they know that you can still see that big thing coming at you :) No amount of camo is going to make a Tank look like a TREE going down the road.
I think they are pajammies.

Possibly for the same reason the Navy camo blue would allow you to be able to blend in with the water if you fell overboard; no good reason.

FM,
All of the COOL colors had been used by the other Branches. They already had white, tan, brown so blue it had to be. Just don't fall overboard.
Now think about it if the Marines and Army wanted to look like a tree (Jungle Camo Color) or a rock and sand (Desert Camo Color) Navy Blue so they could look like the water OOOOPPPS:)

Now just look HOW COOL Son looks with the Blue camo matching his Blue eyes

The first semi-auto 9mm I purchased as a kid was a wwII surplus Astra(20 bucks) and a Lyman mold and a Lee loader... The first magazine full fired in auto mode so I tore it down and fixed the sear and it was fine after that. Full auto is not as exciting as some folks make it out to be, it has no purpose other than to make a lot of noise...
But Full auto weapons are a hoot to shoot!

Are you sure that was an 18 and not a 17 with a switch installed? I ask because in the video it looks like a switch
sticking out the back of the slide?
The 18 has the selector on the left side of the slide.
I might have been blinded by that Dutch Tanker/Village People camo you're wearing.
Be sure to cut the legs off real short to wear at Contender's shoot.
Can't swear... it's what the guy that owns it said it was.... I don't remember a selector switch.
the owner had a shoulder stock installed on it but I asked him if I could shoot it with out that.
The guy is a full auto nut.... in two weeks he is coming up to Lake Murray with about 4,000 rounds of different ammo for folks to go through in about 2 hours... personally, I think it is a waste of good ammo... We will be shooting every thing from 9mm... 223... to 50 cal

I was at supper with my wife, sisters and 93 year old dad at a rib place that had CNN on one of the screens facing me. They ran that piece AGAIN and from talking to friends it seems CNN is running it several times per day. From what I saw, it is a purely FICTION piece with very, very few pieces of truth. CNN is at the bottom of the barrel and is doing anything and everything to try to boost their ratings but I believe they are fighting a quickly losing battle/war.

What used to be a very good news channel - way, way back when they started - has turned into such a liberal, solicialistic, communistic network, that it is really scary to see how they want to brainwash people.

I was surprised a couple years ago by a guy at a gun show openly advertising he had full auto switches for Glocks for sale. $125.
I commented to another seller about it and was told “He’s been selling them for years”.

Making a semi-auto into a full auto isn't that difficult. The difficult part is being able to stop it before the mag runs dry..
