HARRIS COUNTY, Ga. - A Georgia sheriff is creating social media waves again after posting yet another “welcome sign” in front of his headquarters.

Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley created the latest bold welcome sign which reads:

"Our citizens have concealed weapons. If you kill someone, we might kill you back. We have one jail and 356 cemeteries. Enjoy your stay!"

The Beretta 81. A double stack .32ACP blowback DA/SA sized like a Beretta 92 left in the dryer too long, but with the safety on the frame as God intended.

.22LRs are cheating. If we're including them, my Kadet kit is the shit.

That's also cheating. The Model 41 is the Registered Magnum of .22LR target pistols.

For this kind of gimmicky thing, I wouldn't assume they are aiming for sub-minute. I'm intrigued by it on principle, an accurate smoothbore is interesting just because it's different, and it's something that piques my curiosity.

It also might actually be a way to make cheap plinking cheaper. Cheap barrels, a simple swaged bullet design, just something to shoot standing within 100 yards or serve as short range self-defense carbine that would be cheap and effective.

Pellets are at a huge disadvantage compared to bullets, they actually start to lose velocity while still in the barrel.

To add more velocity, companies like FX airguns introduced something they call smooth twist barrels where the majority of the barrel is smooth, but it has a bit of rifling at the end to impart stabilization. Pretty much try to reduce friction as much as possible.

Technically, that technology has been around for a long time and shotguns have been using rifled chokes. But, this is the first time in an airgun and it is definitely more useful there than in the world of chemical propellants.

Let me know if you have any other questions, I've been obsessed with big bore airguns as of late.

>Pellets are at a huge disadvantage compared to bullets, they actually start to lose velocity while still in the barrel.
I can see this being the case with compressed air-propelled pellets.

My main question was about accuracy. If you fired a pellet at a supersonic speed with a smoothbore barrel, would the pellet tumble?

My posts as a whole in this thread were mostly directed to using a bullet design that would not need gyroscopic stability in supersonic flight for use in the Franklin Armory Reformation smoothbore rifle. Their "30 cents over regular ammo" thing sounds very expensive for their nerf football bullet, so a handloader or ammunition manufacturer could potentially make a cheap bullet with half decent accuracy for that type of rifle.

I love my RDB, it's everything I've come to expect from Kel-Tec products, but unfortunately, that includes their pathological desire to include the worst possible aesthetic in terms of handguard.

HOWEVER! "Lucky Irishman Firearms" has designed a far superior handguard for the RDB, and I'd love to have one, but they're currently out of stock.

Reminds me of range stories, such as one about people shooting a semi-auto Tommy Gun and suddenly it went full-auto after burning through a number of drums. The shooter had good presence of mind and kept hold of the out-of-control Thompson until all the ammo remaining in that 50-round drum was expended. Don't know if it was a mechanical malfunction or an ammo cook-off from a hot breech. When it went haywire, he yelled something along the lines of "Holy moley! My finger's off the trigger but this Devil machine is firing on its own!" Perhaps with responses like "Dude, you're in unlawful possession of an unlicensed machine-gun. The Feds'll send you up the river for thirty years!"

I've heard you can get the same effect with a milsurp SKS if it's not cleaned properly before use. Floating firing pin gets gummed up with Cosmoline and sticks, striking the primer as soon as the round is chambered and keeps going until the mag is empty.

And then there was the magazine article about doing a trigger job on an AK that neglected to mention that their method could make a slamfiring illegal machine gun.

>>107138
The way I understand that is if you knowingly replicate a malfunction causing "machine gun" fire, it's illegal, but if it's a legit accident and you don't keep doing it, you're probably okay.

I've had a slamfire happen with S&B commercial ammo in my SKS, it was clean and the firing pin was perfectly free.

Thankfully it only fired one round that way as I hadn't finished topping it up, so my dogs weren't shot.

>>107137
Well, I only happened to have three rounds left in the magazine, so I have no idea if it would've continued if there were more, or if it would've done a burst and stopped.

>>107147
Yeah, it only happened once, and hasn't happened again since its last cleaning, so I should be good for a while.

Reminds me of explaining the advantages of having a tribble...

SPOCK - There is something disquieting about these creatures.
MCCOY - Oh? Don't tell me you've got a feeling, Spock?
SPOCK - Of course not, Doctor. They remind me somewhat of the lilies of the field. They toil not, neither do they spin... but they seem to eat a great deal. I see no practical use for them.
MCCOY - Does everything have to have a practical use for you? They're... nice. They're furry and soft. They make a pleasant sound.
SPOCK - So would an ermine violin, Doctor, but I see no advantage in one.

That plus at least $45 for the Anderson lower is just a few bucks shy of a dedicated Glock mag lower. But if you intend on removing the adapter and swapping the buffer to use a standard 5.56 or whatever upper than I can see the benefit.

Right - It's that I had an Anderson lower laying around already, since I bought it when I was sure Hillary was gonna be prez. If I had to start from scratch, definitely get a dedicated lower.

Blames Obama for not being elected to 3rd term.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-02-12/cerberus-s-remington-will-cede-control-to-lenders-in-bankruptcy
>But on Monday Remington Outdoor Co., which traces its history back to 1816, said it would file for bankruptcy protection, succumbing to a slump in business worsened by, of all things, a president who has steadfastly supported Americans’ right to bear arms.

>The bankruptcy is a blow to the private-equity mogul Stephen Feinberg, who has been a prominent supporter of President Donald Trump. Feinberg’s firm, Cerberus Capital Management, acquired Remington in 2007 and subsequently saddled it with almost $1 billion in debt. The Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing will let Remington stay in business while it works out a plan to turn around the company and pay its creditors.

>While the Remington name is unlikely to disappear, the company’s travails highlight the shifting fortunes of the firearms industry and its fraught position in the nation’s economic and political life. The company’s fortunes took a hit after the election of Donald Trump, a self-proclaimed “true friend” of the gun industry, because Hillary Clinton’s defeat erased fears among gun enthusiasts about losing access to weapons. Sales plummeted, and retailers stopped re-ordering as they found themselves stuffed with unsold inventory.

the last time there was nobody in national office to promote scare buying the republicans were smart enough to provide some loosening of the regulation to give people fun new things to buy. nra gives them enough money and support, thats for sure. they don't have something as convenient as the awb expiration lurking around the corner this time around unfortunately.

I kinda like some Remie when they aren't total pieces of shit so this is a little sad especially if the brand dies completely.

But its their own damn fault, same with Colt (though for different reasons, Colt didn't take advantage of the panic buying while Remington invested too heavily in it to my understanding). They knew that Obama gravy train wouldn't last forever and didn't take steps to take the hit without falling to the pavement wheezing and upchucking their lunch.

I kinda wonder if Remington and other companies ramped up production further in anticipation of a Hillary win.

The same problems facing many gun companies with slow sales and still angry customers burned from the panic buying price gouging seems to be what graphic card sellers and manufacturers are dealing with right now with the buttcoin crypto currency craze, graphics card prices going through the roof, inventory being sold faster then it can be replaced, and sites like Newegg price gouging the fuck out of people. Some like Nvidia are trying to mitigate the damage while others are diving headlong into the boom seeming to not care there will eventually be a bust.

For me personally I was kinda wanting to buy one of those Remington Phaser looking pistols but noped the fuck out when I heard about the problems the gun had. Just spent the money on something else, some slightly deformed looking .22 revolver and a 360 I still have yet to play.

i'd suggest that a government subsidy for citizen weapons purchases, but republicoons don't like welfare (or poor ppl getting guns) so i came up with this more clever idea of like a gunz 401k, i think that could be sold to capitalist republicaniggers because it would allow them to use their power to funnel cash to their wall street backers as dictated by the natural order of capitalism. so if you had job you could preselect a percentage of it which you could only spend on guns and there would be no income tax collected on that portion. to the GOP it would look like a tax cut, they'd be all for it. plus only ppl with jobs would benefit another plus.
of course it never happen because the nra's thinks it's task it to collect as much megabux as possible and then give out infinite free rim jobs and get nothing out of it. worst lobbyists ever

The only thing that pissed me off was the mags that had very high mileage.
I ran some simple drills with it and during a 1 and 1 I basically ran the baseplate halfway off.

But that's not going to be an issue with new mags, the mags are very well made.

Nah fam, though I did mention how I was concerned about manipulating a WML with it sitting so far low.
I was given the response that the toggle switch can be actuated with the middle finger and yeah I guess that would work with ample training.

My biggest concern is how well holsters with WMLs would work, because it wouldn't exactly be solid for retention unless you had a groove over the trigger on the kydex or whatever.

But it would probably wear faster.

Oh, quirk I guess is that like the Gen 2 Glocks (not sure about newer ones) if you send the mag in hard enough, it drops the slide.

Which was kind of a neat trick when I started getting used to it.

Not gonna lie, the gun grew on me.
I love it.

But it's like that weird alt chick you kinda dig.
