I'm still looking for the other one, "45 ACP - Because shooting twice is silly!"
How about, "Why do I carry a .45? Because they don't make a .46."

Whan I was in rehab some poor bastard was paralyzed from the chest down because one of his buddies shot him in the back with a .22 Marlin auto-loader, that the bolt got stuck open on, and when it slammed shut it cooked off a round. Marlin tube-fed autoloader rifles are the worst. Soft aluminum bolt carrier in a cheezy steel receiver. The bolt action ones work good though.

I was out in the low desert today with the mighty FN49. I use to subscribe to this magazine named "Firepower" that had all kinds of neat articles, one was how to modify a BAR mag to fit in an FN49. The BAR mag even has this little notch cut out of the rib where the two parts are stamped together, that snaps right in the fixed magazine well of the FN...like it was made for it...strange, eh? Looks like a M14 now.

A .22 is for women? I have a .44......does that make me twins?

Didn't Browning invent that terrible "Potato Digger" LMG that would dig a trench if you fired it too close to the ground?

I like .45 ACP. My father carried a Thompson as a WWII Seabee, and always told us of the short-range stopping power of the round. Although it's kind of fun to step to the line and rack off 17 9mm rounds into a target, as quickly as you can pull the trigger.....

Personally, I favor a flint Pennsy rifle. Think about it: with a mold and some lead, and the knowledge of how to mix saltpeter, charcoal and sulphur, they can go ahead and pass all the laws they want: doesn't matter, because you never have to go near a store.

Guns: where else can you learn responsibility, have fun, and blast things into little pieces??

That was the Colt Mod. 1895A. A very reliable weapon that had a slow cyclic rate of 400 rpm to keep it cool. The term "potato Digger" came from when the gun was fired from the ground, and the lever action dug up some dirt. It was the first design of a belt fed machine gun besides the Maxim, and supplanted the Gattling Gun in the Spanish American War as the adopted single barrel machine gun.

Seruzawa,

I went to my local shop/range and tried to wrap my hand around the grip of a H&K Tactical Mk23 yesterday. With that double-stack magwell, I couldn't get a good handful. Purty piece, though!

They had a Kimber 'Grand Raptor' there, and a couple of Eclipse's. I managed not to embarrass myself. Too much.

Saw a new Hi-Power on the toy store shelf today. Honest-to-God blued with walnut grips. What a beauty. Wish I had $895 to drop.

And yeah, I know Dieudonne Saive probably had more to do with it than JMB. So what. Even if it has only a trace of Browning's DNA in it, it's blessed.

Quite a lot of nice toys in stock. A couple of Thompson semi-autos, a new M-1 Carbine, a Ruger Mini-14 compact on sale for $650, some Stoeger coach guns, some gorgeous USFA single-actions, a tasty looking Marlin .44 Magnum Cowboy with octagon barrel. Probably nothing interesting to all you Splinter Cell combat Tupperware Richard Marcinko groupies. I think they had a few shelves full of all that plastical stuff, but all I saw was a big black ugly blur where some blue steel and wood should have been. I think I might have seen a 6.8 SPC Tactical Response SOCOM Operator Elite Quad-Rail M7900 Combat Rifle System with Tritium Laser Foregrips, though.

Now this is my idea of a "tactical" rifle (scroll over the "Circassian" model description.)

Take a look at the Springfield Armory XDM. My brother bought one in .45ACP. Fairly light, it shoots amazingly softly for a .45ACP. Far less brutal than the 1911. It shoots about as softly as my Ruger P-90 but is noticeably lighter. I don't know how they did it but I'm considering one for myself.
