  1. Generally speaking the higher the chamber pressure the higher the velocity. STANAG specs give about 75,000 psi for most rounds fired by the 120mm on an Abrams tank. This gives the discarding sabot rounds (one of the lightest IIRC) a muzzle velocity of over 5000 fps. There are several factors to calculate recoil for different purposes. They all consider the total ejected mass (projectile and powder) and velocity of that mass. Higher velocity equals more recoil. The easiest way to deal with recoil is add more mass to the launcher. Fire a 357 mag in a j frame and then in an N frame and you can feel the difference. Recoil systems in artillery and tanks are another matter.
  2. Jews have been fighting off "organized pagans" from before 1000 BC. That would include Assyrians and Romans later on.
  3. I'm really not impressed by Evan Nappen. However I was impressed by the attorney from PA who gave the presentation I went to. If you're wrong an attorney will try to get you the best deal. If you're right a good attorney will pound them to the ground. I've never seen a case where Nappen did anything unless the judge was a jackass (Brian Aiken who screwed himself IMO). A good attorney will keep you out of going to.trial. Or if you do ensure your acquittal. I'd tell you to ask John Gottii but he's dead. You don't need a "gun lawyer" if things go wrong for you. You need a good criminal defense attorney. I know a few.
  4. One bad incident out of millions doesn't seem like bad odds to me. I outlined reasonable precautions in my prior post. Don't know what PAPD has. I've seen them pulling over people at all the NY crossings. The only way I know to access CCW database in NJ is with a SBI number. That can be accessed other ways. @BlueLineFish probably knows what they have.
  5. Okay, how many negative incidents do we know about? PAPD has the same responsibility in NY/NJ.
  6. I have US Law Shield nation wide as well. Covers you in all US states, territories, and possessions. It's inexpensive and makes sense. If you are arrested or detained you might know the law better than the cop. But you're wrong to argue the law with the cop who arrested you. He or she thinks they're right. Easier to make a call to US Law Shield. An attorney can get more done over the phone in a few minutes than you can arguing and waving copies of a law in a cop's face for hours.
  7. IANAL...but under FOPA it makes no difference if it's legal or not in MD as long as you are just going through MD. Under FOPA, the guns have to be legal at the start and finish of your journey. The state laws of the states you transit have no impact as long as you're transporting IAW FOPA. Being cautious to me would don't stay overnight in a state where your guns might be illegal. Where you do stay overnight I suggest taking your guns into your room if possible. Better that than finding them stolen from your vehicle. When I'm travelling I Google crime rates of towns I intend to spend the night. That has changed my mind on where to get a hotel more than once. Stopping for food, gas, or restrooms are incident to your travel. They have nothing to do with final destinations. Frankly, avoiding transit of MD, DC, NY, and other gun unfriendly states is a bit paranoid to me. How do you get to VT or NH without transiting a bit of NY? Yes there are a few horror stories. When you consider the millions of guns that transit these states a year the horror stories are a very, very small percentage. The odds of getting through one of these states without incident are way in your favor. JMO
  8. Thing is if you really need higher resolution film is the way to go. The best 35mm films give over 80 megapixels of resolution. https://kenrockwell.com/tech/film-resolution.htm
  9. 99.9% digital. If I want to do something special in B&W I use film. Still have everything to print 16mm to 4x5 film. Still have the cameras too. My most recent film camera purchase was a nice pinhole camera I bought from @dajonga a couple of years ago. I also have the ability to mix my B&W chemistry from component chemicals.
  10. @Smokin .50 remember some things often dismissed as "bad" can be used as tools for the creative photographer to convey a message. Soft focus and grain are two of them. Slight underexposure with transparency film enhances color. Slight overexposure does the same with color negative film. Don't shoot color just for the sake of color. If you're interested in expanding or contracting the tonal scale in a B&W negative you really need to use a light meter. Yes there are things you can do in the darkroom to achieve some control over this. None of them gives you the range of control that you can achieve if you do it with exposure and altering development time. I can't remember who said it but there was a known photographer who said something like, "If you want to turn a mediocre photo into a great photo make it bigger". Most people don't realize you need to consider viewing distance in order to get the proper perspective in a print. Arm"s length works good for a 5x7. Maybe 7 or 8 feet for a 16x20. Non standard print sizes are another creative tool. For example a lot of my 35mm prints are 6x9 in order to use full frame.
  11. Not answering all your questions but you can't raise the front sight alone. You'll only result in lowering the point of impact to the point of not being able to lower your rear sight enough to compensate for raising the front. The only option I can suggest is using the higher see through mount with your red dot. Get a lace on cheek pad to raise your cheek weld on the stock. If you have to wind up using the irons you can just twist the cheek pad down.
  12. He may have owned it before the NJ AWB and registered it in NJ. I think there is or was a requirement to have C&R firearms you owned before you got your C&R FFL in your book. One could register a M1 carbine, AR15, or M1A in NJ as long as you met the criteria and paid the fee. Nothing illegal about taking it to the range if was registered in NJ. There was less than 400 of these rifles registered IIRC. He'd be wrong saying anyone can get a M1 Carbine in NJ.
  13. I see no problem as long as you have a "justifiable need".
  14. Before further speculation, how old was this guy?
