I cannot imagine giving that guy his machete back after he threatened to kill me and it took a guy with a gun to make him behave. :banghead:
I think I'd tell him to ask the police for it.

Re: Recommendations for a Cock-On-Closing Bolt Action Rifle

Swedish Mauser. When I started using one in across-the-course NRA Highpower Rifle matches, I was told that it would somehow be worse in rapid fire than other bolt actions because of the cock-on-closing bolt.

Re: PPK ballistics

I suspect that a bullet from a PPK would look a lot like bullets from a PP or PPK/S in the same caliber. Or from any other pistol with a similar rifling form.

Re: NC: Deputy leads armed mob and try’s to break into black families home

It is interesting that in mentioning the race of the family, of the neighborhood, and of the people in the mob, no mention is made of the race of the girl.
