A question is an utterance which typically functions as a request for information, which is expected to be provided in the form of an answer. Questions can thus be understood as a kind of illocutionary act in the field of pragmatics or as special kinds of propositions in frameworks of formal semantics such as alternative semantics or inquisitive semantics. Questions are often conflated with interrogatives, which are the grammatical forms typically used to achieve them. Rhetorical questions, for example, are interrogative in form but may not be considered true questions as they are not expected to be answered.

    Galil Operators. Question about recoil buffer

    Just got a JRA new Galil build in and I noticed it has a recoil buffer, which I've never seen in an AK action. Is it something about the 5.56x45 that requires a recoil buffer? Is this a design flaw of the Galil? Gorgeous rifle but my OCD does not like the idea of a piece of plastic in the...

    Question on WSRPA Calendar

    Looking at the WSRPA high-power calendar there's a column which is sometimes blank or has an 'A', 'P', 'R', 'S'. There's no legend and the column does not have a title. I was going to guess they indicate 'Approved', 'Practice', etc. Can anyone verify what those letters stand for please?
