I couldn't find a video of that revolver, but I did find this. Looks like it has one hell of a recoil.

Its wrong on so many levels. as if criminals have superpowers that are not accessible to mere mortals that is part of its debilitating education to helplessness that makes this one of the favorite and worst lies of the liberals.
I heard a news program interview today with the father of a child murdered at Sandy Hook; Feinstein I think his name was. "A family member is 22 times more likely to be killed than a robber stopped in a house with a gun." "A robber could surprise you so there is no point having a gun at home." And here was a totally new one on me... To paraphrase him:

"It is a myth that criminals in the US kill people -- it is the law abiding citizens who murder people with guns in the US and the proof is that there are almost no guns in the hands of civilians in the UK but criminals can have all the guns they want and almost no one is shot to death."

the "AR" in AR15 stands for assualt rifle

rugers are made in germany, cuz you know, they were the gun nazi's used

a 22 is only a little bit more powerful than a bb gun

and my favorite that i've even heard people on here say: "if i got shot with a 22 i think it would just piss me off"

This may get me banned from the site, but what does the "AR" stand for? I am more of a shotgun and black powder guy.

A 15 round magazine for a handgun is a high capacity magazine.
