Video: World's smallest pistol is a Kolibri in 2.7 MM.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THsDpGJcpk8

The above link is a 5 minute, 17 second video that details the world's smallest pistol, called a Kolibri.

It was designed by a watchmaker, only about 1,000 were produced, and fires super small 2.7 MM ammo.

Re: Nobody but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

She makes $174,000 a year. Her payment was for only $1,237.16. I believe if most of us made 174K a year, that loan would have long ago been paid off. Just sayin'. $1,237.16 is .007% of her yearly salary. Even paying off the entire $20,000 remainder would only be 11.49% of her yearly salary. Since he...

Re: Collapsible Baton-Legal to Carry in Texas

Where did you pick up a 21" S & W? Bricks and mortar, or over the web?

Price, I'm guessing, was about $49.99?

Re: Collapsible Baton-Legal to Carry in Texas

Yeah, I picked up a monadnock used to try it out. Better than having nothing in certain scenarios. My only previous definition for "monadnock" was Mount Monadnock in southern New Hampshire. A monadnock is a prominent hill sitting above a plain, and its granite resisted it being ground down by glaci...

Re: DFW North/NorthEast Quadrant Breakfast

I will be there. I attended the NRA Self Defense event this past weekend at the Funkytown Fort Worth Civic Center. It was very informative, but my one complaint is that they keep that place like an icebox. I swear it was 60 or 65 degrees in there. I had goosebumps most of the time. September 1-2 was...

Re: Eating is linked to cancer

Comedian George Burns was on Johnny Carson one night. He stated that he drinks 5 martinis a day and smokes 10-15 cigars a day. Johnny: "What does your doctor say about that?" George: "My doctor is dead". RIP George Burns, American legend, 1896-1996. 100 years of doing what he wanted. Rock on. SIA

Yes, you can open carry your banjo in Walmart.

As long as it has a maximum of 4 strings, no more.

Boy, and we thought "Glock leg" was bad. :-)

I will arrive Saturday at 10 AM and will probably close the place at 600 PM.
You will recognize me with my Ruger hat and black Ruger T-shirt.

My gold name badge with SIA and my full screen name will be attached to my hat.

Re: Off The Beaten Path - Lampasas, TX

John Burleson, the county's first resident, was awarded 1,280 acres of land including the present Lampasas townsite on April 26, 1838, in return for his services during the Texas Revolution. A "quarter section" = 160 acres. A "section" = 640 acres. 640 acres = 1 square mile. So, when this gentleman...

Re: Especially Texan: James Taylor White

Some sources claim that as of the late 1930s, both were among the oldest continuously used cattle brands in the state.

Texas law requires that cattle brands be re-registered every 10 years. Due to this law, this is why his cattle brand(s) could be tracked, as to their active status.

Re: TSRA Sportsman Magazine

Although I believe that the information contained in this article is correct, note that the author gave this presentation in November 2015, almost 4 years ago.

He may not have properly documented the required Spanish verbiage in the piece. YMMV.
