BTW I think I held about 5.5 feet over the target for that shot-the rifle was zeroed at 200M-its been 36 years though
Actually if you were educated on caliber selection you'd know the 300 winmag ruled the LR roost in Hathcock's day. It is what he used at Camp Perry.
IF you had said the 300wm or 7remmag instead of 30 ought you would have shown some caliber savvy. The 30 ought owes it's popularity more to age than excellence. That a caliber is popular doesn't make the owner Dan'l Boone just as the popular 30/30 is by no means a sniper round.
Now as far as who is competition for you at a rifle shoot, is but one way to find out... I have a 1000 yard steel range available... come on down, I always enjoy shooting with someone who thinks they have something to teach me. Might even get Steve Suttles to spot for us. The school is active this time of year.
Now back on millions of guys ready to shoot a dictator at 800 yards...
That you think you can doesn't validate anything. That you think the dictator will wait patiently to be shot, and he got to be dictator without a large armed entourage...
More fantasy mind games.
You think the military won't disarm civilians... bet you screamed a blue moon when the Guard seized weapons in New Orleans after Katrina. You REALLY sure the military won't seize weapons from civilians? Way I see it, if a Dictator gains power a sizable portion of military will believe the malcontents need to be disarmed. N your kind will be said malcontents.
Ft. Lewis, I was stationed there back when you were hunting in Africa. You sound like one of those guys who dabbles here and there and thinks he actually did the deed. Please tell me, did you ever serve in the military? You ever earn cash money by being a LR Tactical Instructor?
But do come on down and school me. You can add it to your rhetoric. As far as SOTIC, and the US shooting teams, hell anyone who hits the Hipower/F-Class circuit shoots and shoots the **** with those guys. They have some interesting theories on spin drift...
"If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself." ~ Martin Heidegger
using the logic of the feminists like Sandra Fluke, not only should we be ALLOWED to own a full auto firearm(or any firearm) they should be provided for us free of charge!
From the ashes.
As for Tienanmen Square, do you realize that the shame and derision that was aimed at China because of the massacre is one of the major reasons why China has become less totalitarian? The violence didn't end the discourse, it didn't end the struggle, it didn't stop those students from making progress towards their goals. It only ended the people. And we all know that killing a person doesn't destroy what they stood for. Is actually sacrificing something for your patriotism too complex an idea for you?
Most of the first amendment ones actually are quite reasonable, though, and pass the strictest of scrutiny. What makes me think some things are constitutional and some aren't is that I, in a fit of madness, actually study law, read constitutional cases, and learn how the whole thing works.
The second amendment guarantees the right to own weapons. It does not say anything about owning all types of weapons, nor about owning weapons free from registration, training, or accountability. I, and most other people who are opposed to the proliferation of weapons, do not want to remove the right to own weapons. We just want some regulation to keep the whole thing as safe as possible. And since that same regulation is applied to every other amendment, and done so in a consistent manner, passing the same tests for legitimacy, regardless of the right involved, why should the second amendment be immune?
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
