    I have an option for violent criminals. But I doubt it would pass through congress.

    I call it the "Dollar Bill" bill. Actually, I could probably just use a reload and get it done cheaper than that. But with all the government regulation, it most likely would cost at least a dollar to impliment my solution to violent criminals.

    Same can be said of sound suppressors. Quite possibly the greatest reason for hearing loss for shooters ever.

    but I was once wicked good in Wobble (silver medalist-National Collegiates) and I won a few regional medals on a real bunker trap-now that is fun-olympic bunker.

    I had a 100 straight in ISU skeet but I remember watching Military shooter Billy THompson run a bunker 100 straight at the Pan Am Trials in Prado TIro (Ontario California, 1984 Olympic games venue)--now that was something
    100 straight!!???!! Holy ****!! My best run was 49 out of 50. I missed the 50th. But it was not on an official range. Just some home boys in our hunting club having an event. I was using a Browning over and under 12 ga. First time I shot the gun. I hardly even remember what it looked like. But that day, I just couldn't miss. Don't you just LOVE those days?

    Wow. Hat's off to you bro.
    You da man!

    My father got me into shooting at an early age. He was a trick shooter and did exhibitions just about every weekend I can remember as a child. I never got into it as deep as you but we did shoot enough to where we loaded our on shells. I was loading shot gun shells before I had hair on my nutsack. Looking back, I'm not so sure that was a good idea. i could have blown the house up. But that's the way we were raised back then, you know? We had a gun rack in every room.

    My pops and uncles were all cops. My brothers are all cops. Hell, my mom was a dispatcher. I am in the industry myself, however, I do not wear a uniform and I really don't want to talk about what I do a lot. I leave that at work.

    I might be sideways with you on some political issues but I would be honored to have a drink with you or swap lies at deer camp someday. You're alright bro.

    Re: Guns

    I never kept track of how many shotgun shells and pistol cartridges I loaded but I used to buy bullets in 10,000 piece lots. Do you know what a 8 pound can of green dot or Winchester 231 looks like? In four years I filled two of those cans with spent large pistol primers

    The last time my Dad and I ever went shooting together was like that. I couldn't miss... busted clay after clay from different angles, shot two at a time and still couldn't miss. Never had a day that good before or since. I don't remember how many it was, we were at it for several hours.

    My Dad, never a man 'unstinting in praise', even gave me some unequivocal kudos for good shooting. I think he knew his health was going and that this might be our last 'outing', and he was glad it was a good one. He passed away a few years later after considerable ill-health, but I will always have that last memory of a perfect day spent shooting with the man who taught me to shoot... "Dead-eye D." as his hunting buddies called him, the man who never missed a bird.

    Yo TD. Does a silencer have any affect on the shot. What I mean is, if you are locked in and you shoot bullseye, then put on the silencer, would the silenced round go bullseye too. Does it have any affect on the shot? Am I making sense?

    I know absolutely nothing about silencers. School me.
