I don't have a problem with the way the guns are held. It looks fine to me, they seem to be aiming right ahead and everything.

WAITAMINUTE I THINK I JUST FIGURED IT OUT. Do you have your minifigs' hands upside down? as in, with the curved part on the top of the hand instead of on the bottom? because when it's on top then yes, the stock bangs into their arm all stupid and it looks bad. Otherwise, with the hand facing the other way it appears to be a pretty snug fit to me.

No...

You most definitely do not need to hold rifles like that outside of LDD. The stock rests comfortably above the shoulder.

...Since when?

The Star Wars rifles can, but that's because they have extra long grips.

Since always? I don't have any old-style rifles in front of me to play around with it, but I always thought they were held just fine, and I never had to resort to tilting them at that agreeably stupid angle.

Dude, I don't know what rifles you've been using, but I've got one in my hands RIGHT NOW and I can't even get the grip into the figure's hand without cocking it at some weird angle.

Witheagle is right dude, unless you get the hand holding the grip by its tip, the rifle will point to the left if considering the minifig's POV.

Ok, first of all...
IT'S WHITEAGLE!

LIKE IF THE WORDS "WHITE" AND "EAGLE" HAD CONJOINED TWINS ATTACHED TO EACH-OTHER BY THE "E"!


Second, thank you for agreeing with me.

You give too many fucks about your nickname dude. And in case you misread, I spelled it correctly.

This is what I must have been doing. Next time I go home and check out my figs I'll report in on how I get em to hold the rifles.

Also Bfenix, you apparently misread twice because you added an H in there. I will continue to type in baddagle because seeing him freak out every time it happens is so worth the extra e.

Stop touting around that you're Italician, no one cares about you nationality on the internet. If you want to feel proud about your ancestry, go watch some propaganda of Boldito Capsolini.

"Other" mining company? The Conglomerate of Salt Miners was the first in the Brikverse!

That's great, but I believe that our two factions are the only two mining companies, so that makes your faction the other one to me and my faction the other one to you.
