Thats the early concept of the p90 I believe
>pickup ps90 at shop to take a look at
>always wanted one because stargate
>look at carry handle/front sight thing
>it looks cast and is full of imperfections and bends
What the fuck is this FN? Shit looked worse than the internal finish on a CZ pistol
>Get P90 5 months ago
>Shoot about 200 rounds through it
>Start noticing that trigger keeps feeling grittier
>trigger feels like ass still
>Measure with a pull gauge
What the fuck FN. I literally have no fucking clue what is wrong with it
>not liking the Tauri weapon of choice
What are you a season 1-3 faggot?
Nah it swiss cheesed their shit. Jaffa armor was ceremonial moreso than functional because Staff weapons shredded through them no matter what material they used.
Goa'uld are very closed minded and did not think about upgrading their warriors arsenal or armor capabilities over the course of the show. Hell even the Ori just had guys wearing fucking leather.
The shit they are wearing is probably something like aluminum and not steel. 9mm is fine.
That makes sense. I was kinda surprised the kept using them on the wraith. You would think you would want something that would leave a bigger hole when fighting something that can heal like that. Imagine how awesome it would have been if SGC had decided to just issue SCAR-17's instead...
The first episode established that their armor would stop regular 9mm ball, so they used AP ammo.
Though the real reason why they switched was because they were getting a great deal on 5.7 blanks.
They kept using them because that was the weapon they were all trained to use and pretty much the only primary weapon they brought to Atlantis. Also for the entire first season and then some they had no way to get new supplies from Earth until the Odyssey was making regular supply runs.
Though honestly I wonder why the writers were too lazy to not have the SGC rebuild a staff weapon into an actual war fighting rifle and issue them to their SG teams. No magazines to worry about, no bullet drop, no wind drift and it could pulverize cover mighty quick.
I was just surprised that they didn't load the Daedalus up with some heavier shit given the data Atlantis sent them when they were able to get a message through. I agree on the staff weapon thing. My guess is that SGC is full of fudds that think directed energy weapons are a fad.
Could just be that staff weapons are still too advanced for them to figure out and alter. Having the Asgard database has sped up Earth's tech development, but they still gotta go through all the necessary steps to get to energy weapons. Doesn't help that most ancient, asgard, and goa'uld tech uses elements that aren't found on Earth.
Yeah but that doesn't prevent your SG team picking up a few of the literal thousands of staff weapons lying on the ground at the end of most episodes, cutting the beat stick off, welding a stock onto the beat stick stub, move the firing stud to a pistol grip that was welded to the normal grip and slapping an optic onto it.
Also i forgot the part where by season 7 or 8 they were making those little Anubis warrior killing things that were the size of a flashlight, hyper drive equipped starships, fairly advanced naquidah generators and had off-world mining bases for those minerals not found on Earth. Hell, even the Prometheus had naquidah enhanced nuclear missiles.
The naquada that the staff weapons used was unstable when damaged.
They added the Asgardian beam weapons and they where what the asgardians took from the Ancient database. So they kinda did kit them out with good tech.
They also use the G36 rifle variants a lot in both Atlantis and SG1. So I guess they did have heavier rifles but producer shills probably the reason why you don't see them much. Not to mention same uses a Ar/M4 TACTICOOL a bit for a while. So I assume all the good funs where just put aside due to cost.
They started using the G36 because they couldn't get cheap 5.7 blanks any more.
Honestly I rather enjoyed that it conveyed a kind of feeling that Col. Mitchell didn't fuck around and preferred to carry a full rifle.
And the Carter special was due to some weirdness. Amanda Tapping explained it in an interview done a little while after the episode premiered.
>Though honestly I wonder why the writers were too lazy to not have the SGC rebuild a staff weapon into an actual war fighting rifle
I would have been okay with this, especially if it was employed like an AA weaponry. One person in the 4 man team hauls it, and pulls it out when it's needed.
The only thing they ever did was make that little side attachment to take out the Kull warriors and that depresses me.
>They started using the G36 because they couldn't get cheap 5.7 blanks any more.
I kind of liked the aesthetic change to the G36 in Stargate Universe. The P90 was a little too scifi for me, which is both why it fit in Atlantis and why Battlestar Galactica stopped using it after Season 1. Having the G36 in Universe brought it back "down to earth" and made it feel more like a show where this could actually happen - which was the appeal of the first 5-6 seasons of Stargate.
Why they didn't just give everyone M4's however, I'll never know.
Speaking of Stargate Universe....wtf happened with that show? Last J saw they had just foundf the bridge and were about to do battle with/against some aliens...
did they do a firefly and bail in a great show after only one season?
google says two seasons. Still its bullshit. They have this badass starship to explore while exploring the universe. Itmakes me cry on the inside a little to think that not only is this not real but even in fiction we only get to see a glimpse of what could be.
>I cry because
>I could be laying waste to a civilization on another planet
>instead I am stuck here
>only ever getting to shoot mongoloid half retarded terrorists in shit hole oarts of the world.
>this is not good enough
>make weapons out of staff weapons
>implying this wouldn't make you parasitic like the Goauld
>take six staff weapons
>duct tape them to a garage door motor
>it spins for no reason
>" it's Neva been done befo"
That one awkward scientist at the SGC tried back engineering staff tech into a rifle type weapon. It fried itself and O'Neill just walked out. The scientist was just shit at making designs, but probably killed any other attempts with his epic fail.
And dont forget the glowing blue eyes! Thats how that sexy fucking chick from Farscape got in the series.
I hope the Imperium finds us soon. But a good legion like Ultramarines or Blood Angels who will give us space tech and then recruit us into the vast Army of the Imperium.
Planning on hunting the feared Wumpus of Golarron 5?
