Quoted For Truth


This embiggens.
























And with one flowchart, he undid the last 40 years of Guns&Ammo, Guns, Gun Digest, twenty-seven lesser rags, two FBI weapons selection tests, and the last three military attempts to find a new standard service pistol…

I carried a 1911 in the military as an MP. I loved it and was comfortable with it. I spent a good amount of money owning several as a civilian. I downgraded to a revolver once poor, but I still had the opinion that bigger was better and that I wanted a hunk of iron to beat someone over the head with as a last resort. Then I read Matthew Bracken and how he favored the 9mm, because he was good enough with it and that shot placement mattered. After a good twenty years of making limp wristed Nazi jokes about 9mm users, I had to admit I had been full of crap. Amazing how few have the talent for distilling wisdom down to such irrefutable nuggets, and how well they work. This is why I listen to Commander Zero even though we are on polar opposites.

I am far from an expert but it seems that a gun you can shoot well under pressure is more important than carrying around a cannon. "If you ain't carrying a .454 Casull you're a pussy!" types seem to be more concerned with compensating for a deficiency than anything else.

Martin Fackler, Buford Boone, Duncan McPherson, Gary K. Roberts, and a number of others answered this issue scientifically and definitively 3 decades ago.

That anyone thinks otherwise is simple inattention.

Quadrupeds: hard, big, heavy projectile, flying as fast as you can control into the vitals.

Bipeds: Use the flow chart.

Animals don't give a shit about flow charts, snark, or internet wisdom.

P.S. bipeds are animals.

Except those types aren’t saying you need to carry a .454. They’re almost always saying you need to carry a .45ACP.

Doesn’t necessarily have to be a big projectile for a deer. 5.56 or .270 work.

Aesop & others: I'm Canadian. What are your take on this ? Foreign troops manoeuvers in Wyoming. Bunch of Arabs, all males in Laramie, small town of 32K. Forward to 3:30 as commercials before. https://thecommonsenseshow.com/activism-agenda-21-education/stranger-things-laramie-wyoming-paul-martin-css

At any given time, we've been training foreign troops on American soil, several thousands at any given moment, and have been pretty much non-stop since 1945.
So far, the republic stands.
(The greater threat, for about 200 years, comes from inside the government, not from foreign troops. But that's a topic for another time.)

If they seized the Laramie city hall and declared an Islamic government, they'd be wiped out by the WY Notional Guard in about an hour, if the Boy & Girl Scouts left anything for the troops to shoot up.

And maybe you've heard, but as there aren't any female Arab soldiers, any Arab troops, by definition, would be all male.
