    Needs some sights. Nice lawn dart though.

    • TheNotoriousIUD

      Gotta get 50 kills to unlock sight.

    What round for F-5?

  • Nicks87

    Let me guess, this thing costs $2K+ ? No thanks.

    Seems to always be a market for one more gimmick I ain’t buying.

    If they don’t post a photo of a guy next to a dead tornado with this thing I’m calling BS.

    So you name the gun after the color of the furniture made by another manufacturer? Hmm….ok then

    As an Oklahoma resident, I need to know this weapon’s effectiveness against tornadoes.

    Article says 5.56 NATO. That should make the length 51mm. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen so many belly-laugh comments on a weapon release notice before. Dead tornados, 50 kills to unlock the sights. This should go viral.
    But the grey does go with the confederate uniform. They took away our flag. This is a kind of feel-better gun for victims of the War of Northern Aggression.
