  1. I'm with fretless on the importance of recoil over weight. Maybe let her try some lightweight heavier recoiling guns and she might have a different opinion on the weight. If you eschew my advice, then be prepared for the new guns to become YOUR new guns when your wife decides she likes your heavy old revolvers after all.
  2. I do not know how many of the stories I heard are true. But amongst the more often heard stories are that there were up to 3 ADs on the set already before that happened, that the producers (alec) were cutting corners with the armorer and not only hired someone inexperienced, but had also told her not to be there that day. If that stuff is true, he should be in trouble. If it's not true, she's likely in trouble. If she was told to not be there I imagine she'll throw him under the bus. Also, I've heard from people who work in movies and they all say that you never actually point the gun at anyone. They use camera tricks to make it look like you are. So if nothing else he goofed there.
  3. This was Alec Baldwin's movie and as such he is responsible for the safety. If he's charged criminally I would expect it to be because of that, not just because he pulled the trigger. But he won't be. He's not a commoner.
  4. I tried to tailgate a motorscooter once. Not as easy as you might think. An hour later I think I saw them pulled in to a truck stop.
  5. Reminds me of working on the border and the mexicans I was working with started calling me wheto (or weto, or jueto ... I never met anyone who knew how it's spelled). I asked what that meant and the only answer I got was that it was me so I stopped pushing it. I didn't know if there was fixin to be a fight or what but it all turned out friendly. Found out later it just means white boy. No negative connotation by itself. I started dating some girls down there and they called me wheto too.
  6. you mean the 1.4 trillion number (64^6 * 5^2) gets multiplied by 28 because the special characters can be anywhere? So now we're up to 39,760,164,908,800 before taking out the characters that are too similar, like oi1, etc. Cool. Can you explain how you figured 28 out? I racked my brain and I never learned how to deal with anything this complex with this type of math. You lost me here. I must have missed whatever was said about spaces. After your post he told us the special characters may not be used at all. Is that what you mean? That adds more possibilities. I think that would just make the 5^2 into 6^2. I'm going to guess 5 characters get removed for being problematic so now we're at 42,517,977,910,128 possible combinations. Over 42 Trillion. (59^6 * 6^2 * 28)
  7. daggum it I forgot about capitalization. as you can see i forget about it when i post too. but now he's changed it up. My number was over 54 billion and it's orders of magnitude too low because I forgot capitalization. The modfications will make it go even higher because they can be in any position, even if it removes some of the letters like o, O, i, I, and l
  8. I like to pretend it's all berdan primed and it makes me feel better.
  9. I get 54,419,558,400 36^6*5^2 36 possible entries in each of the first 6 slots, so 36*36*36*36*36*36 5 possible entries in the last 2, so 5*5 Now, if the 2 slots for special characters can be anywhere and not just in the last 2, then it gets higher. I'd have to think a minute to cipher that out.
  10. I'm not very bright. I'm not sure it would occur to me to have the same ammo. I lean towards 45 colt in the pistol and a big boy rifle cartridge like 40-60 or 45-70. Unless I'm in a heavily wooded area, then maybe I'd have a pistol caliber rifle. Or a lever action shotgun. I know I went off book, but your title saying there are 2 choices only applied to the pistol.
  11. I can't hardly wait. I almost don't want to go to any matches before it gets here because I don't want to use my old ugly cart anymore.
