    Yea. So what is the point of making laws that criminals are supposed to obey?

    true but the new rifled barrel shotguns (it took a ruling by ATF to allow that and further more states that only allow shotgun for deer-like Ohio, had to allow those) with brenneke slugs are accurate to 200 yards

    Put a 4X scope or an EOTECH on one of those rifled slug barrels (or even the smooth bores with the rifled choke at the end) and give me a good slug I can make 10/10 chest shots at 200 yards from a sitting position and maybe 8-10 standing

    In general maybe, and certainly the quickest, but in the hunting group I know it's the quiet, thoughtful guy that usually bags the biggest deer.

    I had been hearing about the rifled barrels, didn't think it would add that much to the range but I'm impressed. I know going tighter choke pattern buys you 5-10 yards but at close range it hurts you.

    You might as well ask "if there were no armies in the world, NOT ONE, how many wars would we have?"


    This is dreamland and does not, will not, can not ever exist.

    There's no point in talking about it. We might as well talk about winged Unicorns and defying gravity by putting mint leaves on your shoes.

    and its idiotic to even bring it up in the context of his claim that the second amendment is what killed those children given places-like mexico-have no constitutional rights to own weapons yet the place is awash with illegal guns and gun deaths

    Re: Guns

    I have 23 guns, my favorite one is a little 22 pistol I took from some drunk that tried to mug me and my wife in downtown Spokane late one night. She said we should call the cops, I said no way, this is a nice little pistol, I wanna keep it.

    But but but, according to what we've been hearing here the gun was supposed to magically give the drunk a 100% chance of making you and your wife handing over your property, and upon refusal immediate death was supposed to follow. Are you trying to tell me he didn't have the advantage people said he had. {sarcasm mode off}

    LOL just hope there isn't 4 bodies on it.

    I had some drugged out loser I knew growing up pull a switchblade on me when I caught him throwing rocks through our window while my parents were out of town. I was armed with a couple rattan sticks. He pulled out this knife and I hit him like 5 times in a second and he dropped the knife. I kicked it down a storm sewer. My brother said DAMN I always wanted a switchblade. I told him he didn't know who that ass might have cut with that blade and it looked crappy anyway. I didn't call the cops though. I figured breaking both his wrists and a jaw was probably good enough and with the knife gone (I didn't know if it could be retrieved) it was better off that way
