Bergbryce, if you're worried about carry or noise, look into .22 CB (short or long, depending on your rifle's chambering) or .22 shotshell choices, and practice to find an effective and humane range due to the obvious tradeoffs. Folks say to expect more fouling, and the .22 CB's may not feed well from a magazine.

The new Ruger LCRs -- a compact 9mm, with ambidextrous safety ,slide lock and safety trigger has THE BEST PULL of ANY compact striker fired weapon weve tested. They have re-designed the trigger pull and its rock solid, light and responsive with nary a "twitch" so common in compact striker fired weapons. They have hit a home run!


edit: And I agree with Perswig, that the shorts wont feed in an auto loader and will hang up every round.. Be it tube fed or rotary..



And as for Aguilla ammo,,, it is THE DIRTIEST out there. I tested it recently and experienced a five to six inch drop with a 40 grain, 22 cal bullet at a measly 100 yards, while CCI ammo hit the bullseye. It took 12 patches to reduce the filth in the barrel as well. Im thinking the Cartels have figured out a way to get rid of their victims by turning them into ash and selling them to Aguilla ammo to be distributed in a 50/50 mix of ash and gun powder in their ammo..;-)

oops almost forgot to mention the new S&W AR rifle.(Mp 15) A stripped down version with piston drive, no dust cover or bump assist- which isn't needed by hobby shooters anyhow. Flip up front and rear sights with a long pictaniny rail for optics, and chambered 5.56 so you can shoot Nato or 223. It selling price is 695.00 retail! A very nice deal!

bergbryce,

I got a Gamo .177 air rifle for varmint control. A single shot with a nitrogen spring. 1200FPS. It has silencer, and it is not too loud since I don't do the poppoppop thing. They make a .22 as well.

I never shoot unless I know a miss will hit dirt. If I hit what I aim at it does the job.

Video game critic, feminist and blogger Anita Sarkeesian canceled a Wednesday speech at Utah State University after the college received an email threatening violence if she lectured, school officials said.

Sarkeesian is a pop culture critic whose series of videos under the Feminist Frequency banner analyze sexism in mainstream video games. Her series has drawn death threats in the past...

...“Anita Sarkeesian has canceled her scheduled speech for tomorrow following a discussion with Utah State University police regarding an email threat that was sent to Utah State University," the announcement on the university website said. "During the discussion, Sarkeesian asked if weapons will be permitted at the speaking venue. Sarkeesian was informed that, in accordance with the State of Utah law regarding the carrying of firearms, if a person has a valid concealed firearm permit and is carrying a weapon, they are permitted to have it at the venue.”

The Armed Citizen:
An off-duty Honolulu police officer alleges he accidentally fired his gun while he was in the bathroom of a Target store on Saturday.

According to KHON, the officer took the Glock out of the holster, put it on the toilet paper dispenser, and accidentally shot it when he went to pick it up.

No one was injured, but the bullet ricocheted off the stall and into the wall of another stall. It’s unknown if anyone else was in the bathroom at the time, but the noise startled shoppers in the store.

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/10/17/1331197/-100-More-GunFAILs-which-brings-us-to-GunFAIL-LXXIX-but-we-re-still-not-caught-up?showAll=yes

Anyway, here's a quick and dirty rundown on the numbers in our most-frequently reported categories. From around mid-August to early September, we saw 11 "home invasion" shootings, that is, where someone has accidentally fired into their neighbors' home or property, not counting two additional instances of firing into a neighboring hotel room. There were also 11 target shooting accidents of various kinds, five hunting accidents, five accidents while cleaning still-loaded guns, six various FAILs involving law enforcement or security officers, three shootings of people mistaken for intruders, two accidental shootings arising from attempted interventions in ongoing attacks or robberies, three accidental discharges while out shopping or dining in public, and the first accidental discharge in the classroom of the still-young school year.

The really alarming numbers, though, were among those who accidentally shot themselves (33), those who accidentally shot a family member or significant other (11), and kids who were accidentally shot (29). Among all the carnage, 17 of the 100 incidents on the list resulted in fatalities.

Which were our most spectacular GunFAILs this time around? Number 14, which demonstrates the need to keep track of your weapon at all times and not accidentally throw it into a bonfire. Number 32, in which a grandmother mistook her 7-year-old grandson for an intruder and shot him. Number 37, in which a son argued with and then shot his father and fled, the mother called police, and when a deputy arrived, mom shot him, thinking it was her son returning. Number 52, in which an angry driver attempting a road rage shooting of a nearby driver accidentally shot himself in the head and killed himself. Number 91, the Idaho State University professor who accidentally shot himself in the foot in the middle of chemistry class. Number 65, in which a cameraman from the long-running TV reality show Cops was accidentally shot and killed during filming, by a cop. And finally, number 17, in which a man carrying his gun under Georgia's new "guns everywhere" law to a German-style biergarten in the Bavarian-themed tourist town of Helen accidentally shot himself in the hand, and the same bullet killed a visitor across the street.

The rest is great reading.

Authorities have identified the Pomona police officer who was shot early Tuesday while serving a search warrant, alleging a known gang member opened fire on the officer as he tried to enter a San Gabriel home.

Officer Shaun Diamond was part of a 14-member, multi-agency SWAT team serving the warrant about 2 a.m. in the 100 block of San Marino Avenue, authorities told reporters at a Tuesday news conference.

http://www.latimes.com/sports/sportsnow/la-sp-sn-jose-canseco-shot-20141028-story.html

Former baseball star Jose Canseco is undergoing surgery after he accidentally nearly shot his finger off in his Las Vegas home Tuesday night, his fiancée Leila Knight told the Los Angeles Times.

The shooting happened about 3 p.m. while Canseco was cleaning his gun at the kitchen table. There was still a round in the chamber in the handgun because Canseco had recently visited the shooting range, Knight said.

“I heard the gun go off and saw his middle finger hanging by a string,” she said.

Canseco shot his middle finger on his left hand.

“It will either have to be amputated or have full reconstruction surgery," Knight said.

Doctors already told the couple Canseco will never have full use of his hand again, Knight said.

Las Vegas police officials confirmed they responded to the shooting. But they declined to elaborate on the circumstances because they did not find any crime had been committed.

Canseco was in poor condition when he arrived at the hospital, Knight said, adding he almost passed out a few times when she called 911 while wrapping a towel around his hand.

A glock you say? Accidentally fired? a GLOCK???

Shocking.

No WAY the gun is liable. NO WAY Glock makes an unsafe weapon. No WAY the gun industry promotes Glockiness in movies and such.

No fricking WAY.

That old baseball player is a bit of a block head though, playing with a loaded glock is some stupid shoot-myself sh#t.

These guys drove up and got right on the ferry to Port Townsend with this.





I was singled out at the Mukilteo ferry by the State Police when his explosives-sniffing dog "alerted" to a duffle bag full of dog food in the back of my truck.

Pretty sure the Second Amendment grants you rights to an M60 and Ma Deuce of your own to protect you from the possibility of their puggle peeing on your car tire.
