    If the Irish ever find out about this we may be doomed. Idaho will be our last best chance for saving the American way of life. Frank will be our hero.

    Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Clause. Oops, I meant to say yes Jimmy, wet dreams do come true.

  3. Jimmy says:

    And I have the ammo for it. No shortage here.

    1.6 Billion potatoes.

  4. Oppo says:

    A Hash Browning — a juliennefield — tuberetta — a weapon of mashed destruction for taterrorists.

    Note to self on protype-in-progress: back-off on the gas pressure so as to not disturb the neighbors! Potatoes are best launched sub-sonically.

  6. Jimmy says:

    That thing could be modified to automatically “make thousands of julienne fries in seconds.” Of course, one would only do that if one wanted to shower one’s enemy with high glycemic love.

  7. Jimmy says:

    It’s true. The magazine for that thing is a burlap sack. I like it.

  8. Marc says:

    Not exactly an M1895 “Potato Digger” machine gun but very nice…just make sure it doesn’t have over a 10 spud capacity.

    But why do you need it? You can’t defend yourself or hunt with it….. Wouldn’t a double-barrel shotgun be better?

  10. Chip says:

    Is there a slightly smaller size available? Something about the size that Mrs Biden could use to scare off intruders from the balcony?

  11. DamnCat says:

    You’ll shoot your eyes out.

    We’re talking Irish here..A double-barrel shot glass would be better !

  13. CTCompromise says:

    …A spudnik

  14. Jimmy says:

    You know, the word “Tactical” is very scary.

    However, if it were described as a “Tactical Assault Potato Gun” then I would say: BAN IT!

    ….and we of Irish extraction say….you sir, are very welcome.

    Working on an AR-15 with a 20 round magazine full of tator tots.

    One historical point and I’ll go away again. The English did just about everything that could be done to the Irish to get them to roll over and assimilate. They took their land, forbade them jobs, starved them, deported them, raped and pillaged the countryside. When the potato failed in the 1850’s they were already starving but then it got truly bad. The Irish lost over 1 million citizens to starvation and it’s outgrowth, cholera, et al. The Irish are still here, they still survive and so will we. Try to take our guns, try to take our freedom, try to take our liberties but in the end we will still be here.

    @17 Seanmahair:
    If only the Irish had whistles….

    A mild expansion of seanmahair’s point on the Famine…there was food in Ireland during that time. Grain-fed cattle, sheep, and hogs roamed upon many a grassy acre. Problem was, those acres were owned by Brit absentee-landlords and cut into large estates and farms which were tended by Loyalist Scots of Presbyterian belief who sided with their Anglican English employers. One charming way that said Brits tried to get Irish Catholics to roll over was to offer them, through Anglican charitable organizations, great meals begun with soup…just so long as they signed forms abandoning their faith and joining up with the Protestants.

    This gave rise to the enduring derision of being called “Soup Irish” or “Soupers”. Someone in their family tree finding it easier to sell cheaply their beliefs than stand up to the oppressions of the Brits-either singularly or with a Fenian Society which would manage to “obtain” a butchered hog or two along with barrels of fish shared by fishermen working the coasts.

    Pog mo thoin, Sasanach!

    Yes the Irish in Dublin watched barges groaning with grain leave the port while they and their children starved. This is why the government in never going to take my weapons. They will have to wrench them from my cold dead fingers and even then if the good Lord allows I’ll haunt them. I don’t have to relive history, I will learn from my ancestors mistakes. I will fight tyrants for there is no life where there is no freedom.

  21. IP says:

    Oppo, well played. :)

    Look out! First the potato gun, then…spud missiles. Run for your lives!
