    Speaking of shooting someone with a .45...

    I was told once, that at 100 yards, if you hold your hand out to your side, with one finger extended, a hit with a .45 on the tip of that finger will knock you off your feet.

    I also am still trying to figure out what the hell a class 2 sniper grade weapon is.

    I'm pretty sure if my finger got shot off, from 10 feet or 100 yards, I'd fall on the ground and cry like a little kid.

    Well I probably would too. But we're talking about the force from the impact knocking you clean off your feet.

    #1: Guns kill people.

    Mine pretty much just lay there. Never seen one get aggressive.
    Maybe yours are different.

    1. Shotguns do not require aiming- you just point it in the general direction of your target. (Tell that to the doves laughing at me as they wing their way South)

    2. The Russians designed their rifles so that they could shoot American ammo if they needed to, but not vice versa. (The Mosin/ Nagant is 15 yrs older than 30-06, 7.62 x 39 is about 15 yrs older than 5.56)

    3. The M16 fires a bullet that tumbles in flight. (Try throwing a football like that)

    4. The AR15 is too hard to learn to use. What you want is a double barreled shotgun- just go outside, point it in the air, and pull the trigger. (Thank you, Mr. Vice President. Have you considered taking your act to Saturday Night Live?)

    A 9mm is not a good man stopper , you should get a .45 . I laugh when I hear this. I always ask if to they want to let me try out the 15 rds of 9mm on them. Usually no reply

    It is not safe to carry a glock with a round chambered because they have no safety.

    10 round magazines are "safer" than 30 round magazines.

    Anything "military or police grade"

    Shotguns are safer because they do not over penetrate walls.

    Firearms won't protect you because it's more likely bad guys will take them and use them on you.

    1) All gun owners are crazy and should be feared
    2) A gun, any gun, can load itself, aim itself and pull its own trigger and that's why you shouldn't have one in your house
    3) If you cross your eyes they can stick like that...my mother told me that when I was a little boy. Has nothing to do with guns, but it came to mind while I was typing.

    Everyone is safer when all guns are locked up in the home.

    - Well, the Crooks are better off cause you probably cant get to your gun to stop them.
    - Your gunless Neighbor isnt any better off for the same reason, you probably wont get anything in ready before bad happens.
    - I doubt your better off struggling in the dark trying to get a weapon in on room, bullets in another, both behind lock and key, by the time youve got your gun, its probably just in time to be taken away from a criminal that was fully prepared when they decided to break and enter your sleepy home.
    - You might just shoot your own head off trying to save yourself after protecting everyone from your dangerous guns by locking them all up in the first place!

    I guess that locking all of your guns and ammo up really isnt that safe unless you say it really fast...

    He also said it was very expensive and hard to get. We all know they are cheap and easy to get.

    I was watching the History Channel at the gym. (It was that or some chick flick) They were showing a documetary about Wyatt Errp. The "Firearms Expert" explained tha Wyatt's "gang" had an advantage because the had a double barreled shotgun. The "expert" claimed that one shot would knock you backwards. I guess he was a movie expert?
