I think Idaho potato farmers should develope a new spud. What about a spud that is of ballistic grade. Maybe a special Potato Military AP class. I think Potato tracer or a high speed hollow point spuds?

It is a fact that potatos used for french fries and hash browns are not the best for spud guns.

6.5MM Carcano.

How Oswald got off three or four accurate shots, at 75+ yards,

at a moving target, in 6 seconds, I'll never know.

You ever try to cycle a round thru one of those POS?

He didn't.

Nothing real exotic or unusual for me, but some cool ones.

I fired a Thompson .45 on full auto.
I fired a .308 Sniper's Rifle with a suppressor
I got my 1911 with AAc suppressor (and LOVE it)
I fired an old H&H Cape Buffalo Gun in some god forsaken caliber that shook my filings loose when I was about 14.

I guess that is about it on the cool scale. Everything else has been kind of normal.

Oh, the COOL scale.

I thought this was the

strange scale...

That carcano has a big hole in the bottom of the mag, where the

clip drops out. Possibly not a very well thought

out innovation, considering all the mud, and

stuff, on the battlefield...

Got to push the button on a Mk 46 Torpedo and a SeaSparrow in the
same day. Gotta love RefTra! The squids will get that reference.

Gyro Jet. It shoots little aluminum rockets (from a handgun).

Gene Simmons used one in the movie "Runaway"

Therewolf so true. If you recall he was kicked off the public rifle range the day before the shooting. His rifle rounds were hitting other shooters targets at 25 yards. What I will never forget was the dunb ass Dallas cop walked out with the Carcano declaring it to be a 98 Mauser. Hell, I knew from there on that investigation was going to be a joke. Was I wrong?

Phalanx Close In Weapon System (CWIS) onboard the USS STOUT USS GONZALEZ and USS LABOON. Unfortunately the navy stopped training fire of SM-2s just before my turn to shoot
