FYI the word Xiuhcoatl literally translates into Turquoise Serpent but is actual a metaphorical term for Fire Serpent. It is really a very fine weapon and is an amazing accomplishment of the Mexican Military. It has been in service since 2006.
You should buy one for Hug e bear chan for his birthday!
buy me one you cheap bastard!!!!!
In spite of cost saving measures for their original design, (our friend Gary who is shooting in competition against my little brother with one of these very fine rifle,) they are very expensive! lol!
Hoping you have a wonderful birthday when it comes in the mail! lol!
Your friend alway,
PS When is your birthday btw
im looking at getting a Mossberg 500 12 guage next.or mabey even a Remington...FIRST A .22 SO MY DAUGHTER CAN SHOOT TOO
How old is your daughter btw ka
ONE IS 16 AND THE OTHER 14
ryo is 16 and little brother is 15 neh
do you want to see 17??????neh????
But ryo come from good family and is good and respectable and honorable boi. And was only currious.
Your friend still, ryo hope!
d:-) <----- ryo in baseball cap
we are all respectable and honorable....and can't be trusted!!!!!lolol
Who alway try to love and trust everybody. Sometime it get ryo in trouble, but would rather that than give up personal value. Ryo have been hurt by people that self once trusted, but still, personal value more important than personal hurt neh.
why don't you date greasypaws' daughter... then you can have lil range-officers running around the dojo!!!!whatta ya think?
well greasypaws most likely have more guns than you and ryo want to live to 17 still!
but this thing looks clumsy and not reliable...and if it was so good, why the fuc do the bandito's come after our weapons...??? jus askin
ryo not like the boy who own it, but was nice to see him drop from first place down to third in competition against my little brother and our friend gary using using the black diamond rifle yesterday. Th FX-05 seem very well balance and shoot very very far for rifle of this caliber with good accuracy.
As for your second question, the FX-05 is more expensive than Mexican Army intended, but not know if this is answer to question or not.
16 is old enough!ebear,show us a pic!
they are trained to kill the whiteman!!!!lol
i like it rough!LOL
what's the matter ??? are you tired of your own daughter????hmmm
i only like young mexican girls!LOL cause afterwards they can cook fajitas!
i was just sayin....you being a redneck and all
i am a redneck not a hillbilly!you were thinking hillbilly(you know like Snake!)
my bad Grease!!!...where is that lil pecker anyways???
