Just curious if anyone has ever or intends to pop off blanks as part of their holiday noise making.
That sounds like fun, but there is a city ordnance where I live against discharging a firearm in the city limits. I'd rather not test it to see if blanks are exempt from that code.

Same here in Vancouver and it is discharging a firearm within the city limits.
Just ask my neighbor.
No blanks here just the regular stuff.
I'd love to, have about 800 x54r blanks I picked up a while back but a) it's not legal, and b) they're louder than anything that goes off in my neighbourhood and would probably scare my kid.
No way in **** would I fire blanks thru my weapons. They're filthy as a mofo and make your weapon just nasty on the inside. We always resisted firing blanks in the army because of the cleaning time involved to restore the weapons after using blanks.
i just shoot lead like crazy today. 357 rifle, 45acp and a 1919 8mm semi auto machine-gun.
All over little crackers, big boomers flares, roman candles, mortar shells have been going off all day. It is a glorious day.
I even had the privledge of standing at full attention and saluting the ensign as I recited the pledge of allegence.
I AM AN AMERICAN, White, proud and blessed to be part of the greatest nation on EARTH.
HAPPY 4TH of JULY.
Happy birthday America, I love you
Shooting blanks from a real firearms in Portland will get you a trip to jail and a court date.
This isn't what I thought this thread was going to be about.
Awe shucks, it weren't nuttin'
Help me understand.

I understand what an SA version of a FA weapon is. Why someone would call it a "semi-auto machine gun" is what I was trying to understand, since "semi-auto" cancels out "machine gun".
Ire(damn thing needs a fun switch)? Self deprecating humour(I was too cheap to pay for the fun switch)?
nah man just live rounds haha id like to see the look on some city folks face if someone was poppin off blanks tho
So it sound like my answer was no. Not surprised, I am also in city limits so of course it was not an option for me either.
One year (back when I lived outside the city) I did use up a dozen or so expired 12ga marine flairs.
Too too clever...
