Revolver vs semiauto effective barrel lengths

In the case of a semiauto (and a derringer), some of the barrel length is taken up by the round itself, which would seemingly reduce the effective length. Contrast that with a revolver where all of the barrel is ahead of the round. As an example, my Bodyguard 380 claims a 2.75" barrel, which would e...

Legal stopping of the threat by an armed victim is by far the most satisfying punishment.

Re: Woman calls 911....Get shot

My takeaway from this tragedy is to stay inside your home and wait for police to come to the door, much like you should stay in the vehicle after a traffic stop.

That along with the fact that PC killed her.

Disclosure of information on weapons involved in ND's and other mishaps

Whenever incidents like this happen, the make and model of the weapon and whether there were any modifications should be disclosed, which would serve to warn and inform the shooting public. http://m.chron.com/neighborhood/cleveland/news/article/Liberty-County-commissioner-involved-in-11291598.php?ut...

Re: Workplace Violence Policy

Why do I find the mantra of run/hide/fight questionable? Better to let a killer do his thing than face a potential lawsuit because the employees were armed and defended themselves...though I don't know why lawsuits of the unarmed/unprotected killed/wounded family members won't occur... The obvious ...

But age is a valuable "card" when justifying disparity of force.

I'm 57, which isn't old in the strictest sense, but I wouldn't hesitate to use it as a defense.

Re: Unrestricted Carry For LTC - What Would You Be Willing To Give Up?

As far as property owner rights, they should be allowed to ban weapons but not without a downside as is the case now. If a property owner chooses to ban weapons, their legal liability for the security of the patrons should be increased and reflected in their insurance rates. However, if they choose ...

Re: Man with gun allowed to drive away alive in Charlotte

One would think that in all the cities where this mayhem has occurred thus far, Charlotte would have the most armed citizens.

There was another such police shooting in Tulsa yet no riots. I think I know why that is.

Disgruntled Democrats should vote for Johnson or Stein, but disgruntled Republicans need to hold their nose and vote for Trump.

Man with gun allowed to drive away alive in Charlotte

Or so the twisted headline reads.

Seem like justified self-defense to me.

Have the idiots who wrote the article ever heard of Reginald Denny?

Questions about your religion from strangers

http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2016/09/17/minnesota/ Given multiple incidents abroad and now domestically, I would consider an inquiry from a stranger as to whether I was a Muslim to be a threat and at the very least get my hand on my weapon and command them to get back.

Re: CT: Probably one most evil men on earth spared death penalty

No doubt that particular crime inspired many to become first-time gun owners and concealed carriers, and it was a factor in my decision to become both back in 2010.
