9 People need to be put in jail for this. Gross abuse of power. Director of SS had SS agents suveil people he had personal disputes with. His secretary was having issues with her neighbors -- so he ordered SS agents to surveil her neighbors. This is insanely illegal, right?

11 http://hotair.com/?p=307715 The latest scandal at the US Secret Service goes beyond alcohol binges and unpaid prostitutes, and directly into the realm of the abuse of power. When the personal assistant of then-Director Mark Sullivan got into a dispute with a neighbor, one with restraining orders and considerably tense feelings, Sullivan ordered agents assigned to a presidential detail to shift their attention to surveillance of the neighbor. The neighbor, a 22-year employee of the FBI, tells the Washington Post that she knew she was being watched, but couldnÂ’t believe it when told who was watching her and her family in the rural area of La Plata, Maryland:

12 Seeing as we have Mom of the Year Sarah Connor up.....Which pistol caliber for Terminator? The slow, heavy slug from a 45 Auto or the hyperfast, 7.62x25 Tokarev with it's enhanced penetration? Remember, your target isn't flesh, but metal. The flesh surrounding the hyperalloy combat chassis is just camouflage. Also, any consideration of other pistol cartridges should be restricted to those available in the early 80s. Discuss.

16 WaPost has the story http://hotair.com/?p=307715 The basic issue here is that this was none of the Secret Service’s business. This was a matter for the local police and court to adjudicate; the employment of the assistant did not give Sullivan any writ or authority over the situation. Regardless of jurisdiction, Sullivan took it upon himself to misdirect agency assets for his own personal purposes, and in the process illegally surveil a citizen who had done nothing to warrant the agency’s attention. On top of that, the assets in question were assigned to the White House, which means that the ability to protect the President, his family, and his staff was impacted in order to intimidate Sullivan’s secretary’s neighborhood foes. And on top of that, the agency knew full well that it was illegal — because, as the Post’s Carol Leonnig reports, they kept a secret file of Operation Moonlight’s activities rather than make it part of their normal filings.

17 May be the first gun thread where I got nothin'.

Hmmmm... How about this...

Worst TV show for gun stuff - The Walking Dead. They reached their nadir when a character needed to commit suicide, and asked Rick for his revolver. He handed it to her and said, "The safety's on."

If that wasn't bad enough, the character closes the door, then a few seconds later we hear the sound of the suicide shot with Rick's revolver - followed by the sound of an empty case hitting the concrete floor.

[facepalm]

25 From the previous thread, call your mom.

Today is or was the largest day for long distance calls all year.

In the 60's, before anything but land lines, often you could not get a connection.

One summer I was in Paris, IL and tried to call my mom.  No direct dial back then, had to go through an operator.

The operator said all the circuits were busy, but she would call me back when one opened and she had my mom on the line.

THOSE WERE THE DAYS!

26 Also, wasn't Desert Eagle making a .50 by then? Could very well be wrong on that. Posted by: teej at May 11, 2014 03:03 PM (zfs2X) The Deagle .50 was later, I think. Used to have a .357 Deagle back around '88 or '89. Useless for anything but generating silly grins and maniacal laughter at the range. Which of course, is reason enough to get one.

   Had the most interesting time yesterday exercising my Ruger Single Six.  Don't get to shoot that enough the last couple years.

   Sweet sweet revolver.  It was Dad's and he carried it everywhere.  The man was deadly with it, I saw him hit 4 and 5 flat washers thrown in the air on many occasions.

28 Funny you should mention that, the post topic. When I asked the missus what she wanted for Mom's Day, she said, "The range," where she shoots a Walther PPK. She is now learning double-tap, having gotten pretty good from 25' in.

29 22 That is a bit baffling. Most wouldn't miss more than once or twice in 10 at 300 barbarian range measurements(300 meters). At 50 yards at mop 4 without glass inserts I cant miss.

The whole reason I put up the question is that I'd remembered reading that the Russians were recently considering going back to 7.62x25 in a new, modern pistol design, specifically because of the body armor issue. I believe they ended up shelving the idea, but the Terminator question just kind of clicked.

39 Peaches, lotsa revolvers have a safety mechanism of some sort.  Maybe a transfer bar, so you can load to capacity, partial cock (like my  Ruger has)--even many of the bp revolvers have a safety feature.

46 I went to the county range this morning when it was just light enough to see my targets (spinning steal) at 25 and 100 yards. Made the one at 25 dance with my S&W 686 and the one at 100 with my Mauser. Came home, cleaned the guns, made my wife breakfast and then we took a long walk in the woods to enjoy the spring flowers. For her mom's day lunch we drove into town for barbecued ribs and several bottles of beer.

At the end of last night's episode, his son (also a veterinarian and in his father's practice) presented his mother with a brick of ammo and a handgun for Mothers Day, after which she loaded up and popped some rounds off the back deck of their house.

78 OK, let's take a breath here and clear up some terms before I'm responsible for accidentally implanting misinformation.

Revolvers DO NOT have safeties. There may be a few oddballs out there that do (and the Python, AFAIK, is NOT one of them, except for a prototype that never made production), but as a rule, no. They're unnecessary.

Modern revolvers DO have inherent safety mechanisms to prevent accidental discharge when dropped or when the hammer is struck with a loaded chamber under it. This is not a SAFETY in the sense of a lever that you flick on or off (which I believe is referred to as a "positive safety").

-------------

"37 They can go off if dropped on the hammer and it's not on an empty chamber Peaches. Posted by: teej"

---------

True for much older designs, like Colt SAA "cowboy" revolvers. Modern transfer bars make that nearly impossible.

81 don't forget moms with bullshit: email from Big Chief Elizabeth Warren: In fact, the deck has been stacked against working moms for years. And even though women are the main breadwinners, or joint breadwinners, in two-thirds of the families across the country, it's only getting worse. When I was a law professor, I spent years studying why middle class families were going broke. In my academic research on bankruptcy, I uncovered some grim facts: *In one year, more women will file for bankruptcy than graduate from college. *Having a child is the single best predictor that a woman will end up in financial collapse. *Single moms are more likely than any other group to file for bankruptcy – more likely than the elderly, more likely than divorced men, and more likely than people living in poor neighborhoods. *Single moms who had been to college are actually 60% more likely to end up bankrupt than their less educated sisters. Women get hit hard. They still earn, on average, only 77 cents to the dollar that her male colleague earns. Bloomberg analyzed census data to find that women are paid less in 264/265 of major occupations – in 99.6% of jobs, women get paid less than men. Yet Republicans have blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act – a law that would make sure women don't get fired just for asking what the guy down the hall makes. [and think of how bad it would be if it weren't for all those Obama/Pelosi/Reid policies.]

87 *In one year, more women will file for bankruptcy than graduate from college.
*Having a child is the single best predictor that a woman will end up in financial collapse.
*Single moms are more likely than any other group to file for bankruptcy – more likely than the elderly, more likely than divorced men, and more likely than people living in poor neighborhoods.
*Single moms who had been to college are actually 60% more likely to end up bankrupt than their less educated sisters.

95 New carry gun is a North American 22 mag revolver.  Really like being able to drop the hammer into the notch between two cambers.  Also a big step up in reliability from the 380 semiauto.

103 I would think for a terminator situation a CZ-52 with the hotter loads, say Polish, would be the off-the-shelf solution. the CZ-52 has the roller bearings and is sturdier than the Tokarev. Try for enough damage on joints like back of the knees and hips to slow it down, and then go for the kill. If you want to go for extreme try a PPSh/PPS, but the CZ is more concealable and easier to tote to the corner store.

111 NRA moms versus Moms Demand http://tinyurl.com/mf3s6qu And so it begins. Quite possibly, one of the most interesting gun control battles in a long time will be held in the world of Mom-dom. Soccer moms from across this land will put on the shoulder pads of pro- or anti-gun control sides and head out for knock-down, drag-out media wars. The field will get bloodied and believe me, there will not be any Kool-Aid moms in white pants running around in this scenario. The Mom Wars began when Michael Bloomberg, not content to be former king of New York City or media mogul, recently pledged $50 million to defeat the National Rifle Association’s successful pro-Second Amendment efforts with his newest organization, “Everytown for Gun Safety,” which is an umbrella for his other 2 groups, Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

115 Women get hit hard. They still earn, on average, only 77 cents to the dollar that her male colleague earns. So, in other words Senator Heap Big Liar, women's employment rate is rapidly approaching 100% and men's...not so much? I mean, if I had a business and I could get away with that 77/100 ratio, you don't think I'd hire an all woman staff? that would give me such a jump on costs right out of the gate that my competition wouldn't be able to catch up.

116 Thanks for the mothers day dedication. My mom gave me my first gun, for bird hunting, when I was 22. It was and still is a 20 ga Remington 1100LT. I also used to stand behind the ranch house door with that shotgun whenever my mom handed out food to passing illegals. Yes, we referred to them as wetbacks back then, but we also gave them food and water and work when they came through. Today's criminal class of illegal is far different. Mom wasn't afraid of them in those days, but after some bad experiences in college, I had learned not to trust any man I didn't know, especially since law enforcement could be hours away from the ranch. I HATE the Moms Demand Action group that considers themselves more moral than a mom like me who owns guns to protect her family. My son was in elementary school when Beslan happened, and that was the impetus for me to finally use a whole day to get my concealed handgun license.

118 94 New carry gun is a North American 22 mag revolver. Really like being able to drop the hammer into the notch between two cambers. Also a big step up in reliability from the 380 semiauto. I have a series 80 colt government model 380 auto, had it for many years, and when I choose to carry concealed its the one I choose. At first it had feeding problems with HPs but after putting about 200 rounds of ball ammo through it my little colt would feed any and all HPs. Its a matter of smoothing down the feed ramp. Colt no longer produces this model which is a real shame as its a great little pistol that you can carry with 7+1. If you have a 380 you should put hundreds of ball through it before expecting it to feed each and every time. Also, check your mags. Persistent feeding problems after breaking the gun in are usually a matter of problems with the mags. 22 mag out of a short barrel does not have the stopping power of a 380 ACP. Don't get me wrong, the 22 mag is a great rimfire rifle round, but in a hand gun it can not reach anywhere near its full potential. Bersa makes a good, inexpensive 380. A friend has one and he really likes. Again, he had to put about 2-300 rounds of ball through it before it functioned flawlessly with HPS.

119 I don't know that I would pick a .22 anything for a carry gun, but if it's on your person and not in the safe when you need it it's better than nothing. Shot placement is key!

   My Remington 1911 visits a very competent gunsmith yearly to ensure that it goes bang EVERY time I pull the trigger.

   Never have had a malfunction using it (yet), love to see that continue.  It eats anything it's fed.

My Dad just gave me his Govt Colt 1911. He got it through the NRA in the 60s for $14.00!

 

I checked the serial number to see when it was made. 1943 and was actually manufactured by Ithaca. It has the inspection mark, FJA, for Col Frank J. Atwood.

 

btw, CZ, to me, was always about motorcross bikes...

128 Gee, why no love for the .44 Mag? Here you all go googly over the CZ and while its nice its a kitty when it comes to the .44 in kinetic energy and in the end it is physics that determines how hard the round hits.

Same for the .45, lots of mass but no velocity. Sure, you have 1 or 2 more rounds in the stack but after I go empty the next gun out is a 9mm with 16 rounds.

No malf's with my Ruger wheel gun, ever.

Kinetic energy for the masses!

The 500 rounds of .22LR, now that was like striking gold. I had just bought a Mossberg 44US from a friend- pretty similar to the one I shot on the ROTC rifle team. Hadn't had much to feed it though.

Posted by: SpongeBobSaget at May 11, 2014 04:02 PM (L02KD) I carry my NAA Black Widow often in the summertime since its print, whether in my cargo or front pocket, is nearly invisible. It took me awhile to become reasonably accurate with it at 5-7 yards because of the very short sight radius, but I'm fairly confident I can hit center mass at short range while under stress, which is all I ask of a pocket gun. So yeah, the Black Widow .22 mag is a good little pistol--designed by Dick Casull, I believe. Can't go wrong there.
