    Starship Troopers Rifle Lives on with Malaysian Seals

    Well, sort of? LOL

    I have no idea why this article ended up in my Google Newsfeed tonight, but I found this story on the HK XM8 family of rifles kind of interesting.

    The actual headline is..

    “ The Army’s Aborted XM8 “Starship Troopers” Rifle Lived On in the Hands of Malaysian Frogmen”

    They MOISTLY come out at night.... MOISTLY!

    I remember taking my kids to see the movie when it was first released. My youngest boy sat in the front row, hands on his imaginary spade grips and made the rat-a-tat sounds of machine gun fire whenever a bug was on the screen. Good times had by all.

    Never produced for sale. Only a few R&D models were ever built ......BUT we can take comfort knowing the G11 is banned in Canada regardless.
