    I'm going to ask this again considering it's more on topic this time.
    Does anybody know what happen to that artical from almost a week ago of a new 5.56 rifle by IWI that appeared out of nowhere and then dissapeared just as quickly?

      @Potates Yesterday Julie Orin had an IG video of her in a conference room, I think at Zahal, with numerous Tavors and Galils on the wall and a pan around the room definitely showed this new gun on the wall as well. Might be cool!

    I don't understand the fascination with naming weapons after Masada, an event where literal Zealots ran off to a fortress in the desert, dared their enemy to come after them, the enemy promptly obliged and encircled and trapped them, built a ramp up to the citadel, and then took no casualties in storming the Masada citadel because the Zealot defenders killed themselves and their families instead.

    Not exactly a glorious moment to look to. I'd have thought any number of other events and battles may be more...inspiring.
