SPOKANE, Wash. — Still angry about the idea of an Islamic cultural center opening near Ground Zero, a group of Idaho gun enthusiasts decided to fight back with a new line of pork-laced bullets.

South Fork Industries, based in Dalton Gardens, Idaho, claims its ammunition, called Jihawg Ammo, is a “defensive deterrent to those who violently act in the name of Islam.”

The bullets are coated in pork-infused paint, which the company states makes the ammo “haram,” or unclean, and therefore will keep a Muslim who’s shot with one of the bullets from entering paradise.

“With Jihawg Ammo, you don’t just kill an Islamist terrorist, you also send him to hell. That should give would-be martyrs something to think about before they launch an attack. If it ever becomes necessary to defend yourself and those around you our ammo works on two levels,” the company said in a press release earlier this month.

I dont know yet whether this is incredibly intelligent or incredibly offensive. Or maybe both...

I don't really think it works like that...

I wouldnt say its stupid at all. You would fight religious extremists with their own beliefs.
The only question is whether its immoral or not.

for one, christians don't believe in islam, so for a christian to buy the bullets would be meaningless. second, being shot with pork laced bullets wouldn't mean that the muslim would be going to hell according to islam. third, the killing of others probably would if heaven/hell existed, meaning the terrorists will be going to hell anyway. fourth, promoting violence and/or racist(/islamophobic) views causes more trouble than it does good. and so on and so forth.

The idea is that it's a deterrent, so it wouldn't be meaningless just because they don't believe the same thing. The rest of your points, though, I can't much argue, except that the terrorists wouldn't be going to hell according to their religious beliefs.

Anyone here actually familiar with the Islamic law and koran (I think that's the bible equivalent?) to confirm if this would send them to hell?

It would not. The verse actually just says that swine is forbidden because it's a 'dirty' animal. They can't eat it, I don't think that it somehow being forcibly injected into their body would cause an issue. The Koran doesn't specifically address what happens when you get shot by a pork infused bullet; it just says swine is forbidden. All in all, I think this is mostly just a joke that is being taken too far.

I think it says not to eat it in the Bible as well, but that's more or less been ignored.

QFT, unless the bullet is stuck in the digestive system, norishing the target and becoming one with it.

was it Indians who refused to use cow-grease on their weapons, and made a huge revolution over it, even though they didn't eat it at all? anyways, same sort of logic may apply here (if any logic can be applied to terrorists).. but really, why not?

@ Zak - it's not about what Christians believe in (besides that there are quite a few contradictions), it's what they believe others fear, likewise it's not about Islam either, it's about the "terrorist" version of it, and I think the damage is already done as far as /islamophobic - this won't do much either way

Hmm, If the bullets aren't coated with pork, do the Islamist terrorist, go to Heaven?
Just wondering.

What if we capture them and force feed them pork? Would that scare them off?

But what happens if you force-feed bullets down their throats at 3000 f/s?

They would most likely be dead before they were capable of actually ingesting it.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news.
