Default Gustav

Watching people get interviewed ahead of Hurricanes there usually like, ho hum, were gunna' ride it out, bla bla we've done it before.

You watch them talking to people in New Orleans today and you can see the fear etched into their skin.

Looks like the only difference between the two storms is that this one may be worse.

Oil/Petrol at the pump in Canada prediction from CIBC (The Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce) speculators is $1.75/litre by the middle of next week. Today, where I live it is $1.32/litre.

I remember in the early early days as an Irish Army Reservist (was like 15 or something), we would have to fire the FN, the GUSTAV SMG and the Bren Gun.... Weapons 1 and 3, not an issue, great training weapons that really got me dialed into long range shooting... weapon 2.... What a nasty nasty nasty weapon.. and thats to the guy firing it, not the guy at the other end... We got the horror stories of a platoon in the Congo jumping off a transport in a hurry and the butt of the Gustav hit the tailboard, he was holding the muzzle and the weapon ****ed itself and fired.. bye bye hand.... another dude running through a forest and tripped over a branch on the forest floor same thing again... ****in LETHAL!!.. to the owner... THANKFULLY, the Gustav SMG was scrapped along with the FN (which I did miss) and we got the AUG Styer... years before this happened of course, I went into the Regular Army and got trained up on the Regular Weapons, of which the AUG Steyr was the general issue AR.
