  1. Back in the '70s, Clint Eastwood had a place in Carmel called "The Hog's Breath Inn".

     

    In a slightly different vein, back in Columbus Ohio there used to be an outfit driving red trucks with "Caution Explosives" signs on them. They supplied popcorn to movie theaters.

  2. That stainless S&W looks to be a Model 681, think a fixed sight 686. 

    As for the .44 Magnum Diamondback, I don't think so. The Diamondback was a smaller framed revolver. They were only made in .22 and .38. I think, and I may be wrong here, that it's the same frame as a Detective Special.

  3. I absolutely detest the whole body modification business. Now I'll bet that many of you guys have tattoos. And I suppose that's fine. But when I see an otherwise attractive person, woman OR man that is covered with tattoos and piercings, I simply find it displeasing.

    Since the Air Craft was still onna taxiway, would make much more sense to put the round thru the PILOT.  Dead pilots don't fly airplanes.

    Was thinking the same thing - cockpits are relatively compact; 1, 2 or 3 rifle rounds passing thru would definitely get the pilots attention.

    Not to mention that aircraft are made of aluminium, and the skin is THIN aluminum. But if a round or two were to hit the cockpit, and miss the pilot, they could still tear up an instrument panel and damage the controls.

    one day they will be standing in a bread line hoping to get what the government promised - thats not the american dream , thats not the intent of our government and it was never what our founding fathers envisioned for this country , its not what we should be 

    If it gets to that point, the rest of us will be in the same bread lines.

    Brother-in-law and I showed up at a gunclub at the break of dawn. We went to pistol range and dug up several hundred pounds of scrap.  We used a frame with expanded metal (gutter leaf guards,  as I remember) We got a wash tub and buckets full.  I melted it down in a large cast iron kittle.  Still have most of it. 

     

    I still clean out my bullet traps. And I can't help picking up wheel weights.  Been know to pick up lead at cowboy shooting ranges when we went over to setup.

    When I first started shooting, I met a guy who did a LOT of reloading. He would go to the local outdoor range with a rake about once a month and just rake out hundreds of fired bullets. He's melt them down, cast his bullets, load them up, and sell them at the range. 

    And to answer Father Kit Cool Gun Garth's question, most bullets, at least handgun bullets, penetrate about a foot into plain dirt.  

  7. Putting a round into an engine would definitely FOD, (Foreign Object Damage), it out. Most twin engine aircraft can fly and land on one engine, (that's why Navy and Marine aircraft have two, even helicopters), but taking off almost certainly wouldn't happen. 

    As long as the offending aircraft wasn't already taking off, a bullet into the intake would safely stop it from going far. 

    A birdstrike as shown in "Topgun Maverick", while it would almost certainly NOT take out both engines, would probably take out one of them.

    I thought Military intelligence was an oxymoron.

    Kind of like "Fun Run".

    I wouldn't put anything past Putin.  Take the country's collective mind off the failure in Ukraine. 

    That was, and still is, my thought too. Add to it that the terrorists were reported to have headed to Ukraine to escape.

  9. You said in the New .22 thread:

    There’s a line from a show that I cannot remember the name of right now that made me laugh to myself, but was very poignant. 
    A main character was dying. His friend says “You shouldn’t die alone.”

    The main character responded “We all die alone.”

     

    I also remember this scene, but not what it is from. Now I'll be sitting here ALL DAY trying to remember it. I want to say it's from an episode of "Firefly", but I'm not sure. 

    Maybe it was from "Outlaw Josey Wales"? When the kid died?

    My biggest difficulty is finding a reliable.22 pistol that’s easily pack able and concealable. 

    I'm going to go against the grain here and say that a .22 revolver can solve all these problems. While the round discussed here specifically was NOT designed for a revolver, plenty of other ammo will work just fine.

    This is my Taurus 94. 9 shot DA, 4" with adjustable sights. Since it is the same frame as their 85 series revolvers in .38, it wears the same grips as my 85s, but normally came with a larger wood grip. More modern versions come with a rubber grip.

    No.  The Uppercut and Stinger have similar velocity from a 2" barrel.  The Uppercut was designed for reliable expansion and it works.  

    Stinger on the left, Uppercut in the middle.

    The ballistic gel test was underwhelming at best. I'm not saying that I wouldn't use it if it was all I had, but I'd like something bigger.

    Either that, or if you make one out to "Cash".

    I read about this last month, I think. 
    It sounds interesting. 
    For someone that has health issues or has hand, wrist, arm issues this might be something to consider. 

    I looked at the videos, and while it "might" be a better .22, I think that a .380 would be better. Girsan is making a slightly modernized version of the Baretta 84. The tip up barrel would be a real asset to somebody without the strength to rack a slide.

    BTW I think once a child of a president breaks the law they’re fair game!! 

    Not necessarily. If the President didn't have anything to do with the child's criminal activity, it shouldn't have a bearing on the President. In Hunter's case, the President is in it up to his neck.

    I didn't have any use for Jimmy Carter, but it didn't have anything to do with his brother Billy.

     

    Edit: Of course, if the child is having a kegger in the White House, that might be a different story.
