In my experience

Anything called a “game changer” isn’t. Especially if it’s in the gun biz.

    Has it been on Sons of Guns?

    I’m hoping it’s an accurate AK.

    Last time I heard “game changer” in the gun biz was this little fly by night company from Austria called Glock. Don’t quite recall what happened to them though. 🙂

    Perhaps the marketing execs at those gun companies are playing a different game than you.

    I’d also check a current version of the rule book of whatever game they are playing, as changing the game generally involves violating, discarding or amending the existing rules.

    There are plenty of ways to change the game: cheat, use better equipment, have the equivalent of Michael Jordan on your team, use new plays, or even play an entirely different game than everyone else.

    I still want my personal flying car, a phaser and a magic wand. Change the game, indeed.

    The automobile, refrigeration, antibiotics, canning, the atomic bomb, satellites and the internet were certainly game changers, but the firearm in its current functionality has been around for a very long time. The metal cartridge might be called a game changer, and the repeating arm that followed almost immediately, then the machinegun. But that was over a hundred years ago. Maybe the SturmGevehr was a game changer, but only by a little bit since we already had the Garand, Thompson, M3 the BAR and several other examples of semiauto and auto rifles and subguns from other countries. Night vision was fairly significant.

    The most significant game changer of our time though is our cultural rot.

    3D printing of guns is the only game changer recently, but that’s of marginal utility at best.
