who says it'll be a few miles, hmm? who says that anybody walked 30 miles with 80 lbs, either?

up their ...

your "impression" does NOT constititue a contradicion on my part. It just means that because
you don't happen to like what i said, you want to discredit me in some way. Contradictions
can't exist. Whe...

in other words, you wouldn't DARE go, and you surely wouldn't last 3 weeks. :-) if you can't
read the posts and see which guy was talking about bugging in until he's displaced, that aint

12 ga blasts to the chest have failed to stop 180 lb men,but "somehow" a much less powerful 454

can still run. ...

Posted in thread: 20 ga slug hits as "hard" as 454 Casull pistol on 07-25-2013 at 07:15 PM

bear) and can get such hits TWICE as fast, and the 20 ga auto (using buckshot or birdshot) is
many times mor...
