I pisses me off that every time someone shoots a person w/ a rifle they are a "sniper'. Remember the so called "DC snipers"?
My definition of a sniper is a trained/skilled/professional marksman. Not some idiot w/ a deer/varmint rifle shooting innocent people.

There is a correlation between gun control, or lack thereof, and gun violence.

How about....If your bullets going fast enough you can shoot an animal anywhere and it will die from " hydrostatic shock".
This one really yanks my chain! According to the liberal press;
All southerners are a bunch of illiterate Bible thumping psycho's that own guns and kill animals for sport.
I was thinking about this after church Sunday while I was reloading some .270's for next deer season and it really got me upset. I ain't illiterate!

Actually the original M16 issued to the military, I believe had a 1:14 twist
and marginally stablized the bullet. Therefore the bullet could tumble after
impact and did create a greater number of fatal wounds. When the twist
was increased to 1:12 the lethality of the weapons system was reduced.
At least this is the story and is plausible.

.223 Remington is legal in WI and other states and will kill a whitetail with

All the southerners I know; kill animals to eat them!

"All AR's are fully automatic and should be illegal..." told to me by my
waitress a few weeks ago. It was a teachable moment. I had my 13 year
old do the teaching. She is better educated now, at least she is a good
waitress.
