Why do we?

Today I'm going to talk about the so dreaded block trigger that everyone hates.
But why?
You say they lack (or have none) innovation.
You can't deny it.
Even the greatest K'NEXers started out with block triggers.
The K'NEX gun itself started with a block trigger.
So people are just shunning our orgin.
With out the block trigger, K'NEX guns would've NEVER existed.
Think about it.

Since newer systems were thought of and built, people just don't prefer block triggers. I don't hate block triggers, i just don't prefer them. It's not like we should all go praise them for they are our orgin, but we should just ignore them if you still hate them, or just keep in mind that this is our orgin and not even say a thing.

Well do you think that if Ford made a steam powered piston car that did half a mile and hour and broke down every 50ft people would like it? Would it sell? Would it be popular?
There is a reason why people move on to better things.

I think most people would agree with you, but you can't argue that shunning older designs for new ones is a bad thing?  Imagine if real armies used flintlock weapons.

If one side used flintlock, and the other modern, oh god.

About 1 shot from a musket = 40 rounds from an M4 ;)
So 1 musket shot is 40X more powerful than 40 from an M4?

No. I think he was speaking ROF-wise. But I'm not sure because it'd be more like a bajillion.

I was kidding.
I dont hate them, in fact I use them on alot of prototypes, but, if you look at what guns actually use a block triggers you can see a trend, are they guns like the Z35 or the Tr18? no they are nooby tube and stick guns (for the most part)
The TR-18 is a tube and stick gun, but it just has a true trigger.
