  1. I know of one verified incident of that happening in over 50 years of shooting.
  2. You are correct. This is nothing new in the Democrat mindset. It reminds me of Janet Reno asking for more gun laws after Colombine. A reporter asked her, "What do you say to the people who say just enforce the laws we already have". Reno's response? "It doesn't matter if we enforce them or not we need more gun laws". This coming from the AG? Democrats long ago stopped doing anything meaningful. They just do stuff to look like they're doing something.
  3. I wonder if this will be a recruiting success for the Navy as the first was.
  4. @raz-0 see @10X's post. Ginger can treat nausea and also be used as a laxative. The meclizine is an antihistamine. I would hazard a guess you'd be getting drowsy from that way before the ginger would have any laxative effect. I suspect the ginger in bonine is there more as a flavoring. They also make a raspberry bonine
  5. I've done some underway boardings but nothing approaching what these guys did.
  6. If you're going to take something try Bonine. It doesn't make you drowsy. @fishnut is correct. Stay on deck but stay away from the transom as the exhaust fumes will make you feel worse @JohnnyB is correct too. I used to run boats at work. I'd never get seasick as long as I was at the helm. I knew pilots who would get airsick if they weren't at the controls. FWIW I never got airsick although I've flown in small aircraft when the pilots did crazy stuff.
  7. @Maksim nice gun. I've always had a PP/PPK around since 1973. I have a few now. I have a late war (1944) PP in 32. That was when they stopped marking them except for serial number and an acceptance stamp. It has some serious pitting but for $125 I couldn't pass it up. The pride of my PP/PPK assortment is a mid-60s PPK in 32. JUST LIKE THE GENUINE JAMES BOND!!! I've wanted one since 1962 when I started reading Bond and eventually got one. It was unfired but I changed that! Some of the forum members got to shoot it at one of our informal meets. I share Skeeter Skelton's opinion that a PP/PPK in 32 or 380 with FMJ is about as effective as a 2" 38 with 158 RNL. Not something you want to dismiss.
  8. Do what the manufacturer says. Fill out the form, they'll send you a label, and you ship it directly to them. There is nothing illegal, state or federal law, about a person sending a firearm to a manufacturer for repair and the person receiving it directly back from the manufacturer. If the manufacturer replaces the firearm then it must go through a FFL as it will have a different serial number.
  9. I'd say most gun owners are not into guns. There are many guns I've seen that spent their lives in sock drawers as the owner bought the gun "for protection". Many of these guns go unfired.
  10. I finally got to try out the Wrangler I picked up a few weeks ago. The fit and finish are good IMO. There are some gaps in the fit of the grip frame but not anything I'm concerned about in a $200 gun. Great job with the cerakote and bluing. The trigger is a bit heavy and not as good as my Single Six. It will probably smooth out with use. My Single Six probably has a bazillion rounds through it. The Wrangler's loading gate is a little stiff but that will work in. How does it shoot? From a rest when I was doing my job with the right ammo I was able to shoot 2"+ groups. About the same as my Single Six. I could probably do better if i wasnt over 100 years old. The sights were dead on for windage. Elevation varied depending on what ammo (high velocity, standard velocity, and bullet weight) but that can be expected. Reliability was 100%. IMO Ruger has a winner here. Great utility grade revolver at a fraction of the price of anything comparable. Half the price of a Single Six. I've seen the Heritage go for $130 online but add in shipping and transfer fees vs $200 I paid from dealer stock and it's a Ruger! @fishnut you can fan these but the stiffer action and checkering on the hammer will probably chew up your hand.
  11. Okay @Sniper by the paragraph. 1. I am aware of aberrant behavior exhibited by mass shooters. Never said I wasn't. What I said is having the people directly around them charged as accessories is not as easy as you think. 2. Yes there are many shades of grey but you can't charge everyone associated with a mass shooter which seems to be your stand. 3. You said "make people who are directly around them accessories to the crime". See my #2 above. If you don't mean to charge them and put them on trial what do you mean then? 4. You're welcome. PC and evidence has to convince a prosecutor, a judge at the initial appearance, a grand jury, and ultimately a jury that the person committed a crime. Mere knowledge of aberrant behavior does not constitute PC. 5. Yeah, compared to you I have vast experience in criminal prosecutions. How many criminal investigations have you done? How many cases have you presented to a prosecutor that were successfully prosecuted? How many of your cases were so air tight that the defendant copped a plea for a reduced sentence? I have been involved in many cases where people were charged and convicted of 18 USC 4 Misprision of a Felony, 18 USC 371 Conspiracy, and 21 USC 846 Drug Conspiracy. How many of such cases have you investigated and had successfully prosecuted? 6. No insult there. IIRC your background is in engineering. Tell me it's a good thing I never was an engineer, musician, or pro athlete. I wouldn't be offended. I was never any of those things. 7. I never said none. Stop trying to say I said something I didn't. You seem to think everyone associated should be charged as an accessory. That's not how it works. I explained that in #4 and #5 above. I seen people on this forum exhibit aberrant behavior in some of their posts. If they commit a crime related to their posts should I be charged as an accessory for not reporting it and to whom?
  12. @Sniper this is an example of an adult conversation.
  13. You apparently have little knowledge of the justice system outside of theory. You said make the accessories to the crime. Isn't what you're saying is the family member should have reported aberrant behavior to the police? Then what are the police supposed to do? Arrest them? Have the person committed to an institution? Charging someone as an accessory because they SHOULD have known? Sounds like the thought police to me. You need probable cause to arrest and charge someone. Where is your PC in the example you give? If the person had pressed charges against someone who put a gun to his head and the person is convicted of a crime how does that prevent him from doing a mass shooting? It only means he can't but a gun legally. Given enough money and time and you can buy anything you want off the street. The Las Vegas shooter bought a lot of guns and ammo. Based on that a lot of people would call him an enthusiastic shooter. There is no spinning or voices in my head. Actually the opposite may be true. You seem to have issues having an adult conversation with someone you disagree without throwing out insults. Good thing you aren't an attorney because you'd have been out of business a long time ago. I know what planet I live on. There are specific definable circumstances where parents are held liable for actions taken by their children. There are few of them where the parents can be held criminally liable.
  14. No "spewing" on my part. I'll leave that to you. Anyone charged with a criminal offense needs to be found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. That is called due process and is also in the Constitution. You are talking isolated incidents here. You were talking in very general terms in the post I quoted. That post seems to support a red flag type of law. Pointing a gun at someone's head isn't at crime unless you have a plaintiff. Foolish yes, but not a crime. Are you proposing a central depository of aberrant behavior? Where family, friends, and the police deposit information? Sounds very "Big Brother" to me.
  15. Sounds good but remember if you're going to charge someone criminally you have to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt. That's embedded in our legal system. So if a spouse, family member, boyfriend, or girlfriend thinks they're acting irrationally they should be able to have that person committed to a mental institution? Maybe we should let the police do it? Sounds like you're supporting some type of red flag law. I've seen some people on this forum exhibit some aberrant behavior in their posts.
  16. Clean your primer pockets before or after sizing. AFAIC its a personal preference. If you tumble deprimed brass it doesn't always mean the primer pockets get cleaned. You can clean your primer pockets with a small screwdriver and a small punch to clean out the flash holes.
  17. Maybe so but if he wants to start reloading a chamfer tool will do the job at lower cost. I've been reloading for only about 45 years. I still don't have a swaging tool. There was a guy a few years ago who won a benchrest competion using an original Lee Loader, where you hammered the brass into the neck sizing die. He used a pocket knife to remove crimps. You can cut or swage the primer pockets. I've seen nothing that convinces me one way is better than the other.
  18. There was one sensible position presented in the first night of the of the Democratic debates. I can't remember who it was but one of his proposals was to have mental health services embedded in schools. Many of the school shootings are done in schools the shooter was attending.
  19. Read NJS 2C:33-4.1, Cyber Harassment, 3rd or 4th degree crime.
  20. @Zeke it all depends. Vermont has been a constitutional carry state before all the others IIRC. They forbid carry in all state buildings and that would include State Police barracks.
  21. Well yes...but you can spend a couple of hundred dollars on a case prep station to do the job or $10 on a chamfer tool.
  22. He has a chamfer and deburring tool on his list. That's all I've been using for over 40 years.
