    Maybe. Doesn't Minnesota have the same stat where there are more guns than people?

    I believe as of this year, it's true for the entire country.

    My point is gun violence is primarily an urban thing, and Wyoming lacks anything that counts as urban. (Cheyenne is smaller than most Big 10 football stadiums)

    Can you please post where you found the announcement for those Garands, or PM me? I have a work friend who I'm sure would be interested, and he's qualified. Thanks.

    They had a flaw, a loud pinging noise when the last round of the clip was fired. Announced to everyone you were out and had to reload. Of course our boys were smart and started carrying around empty clips. Fire a shot or two, flick an empty clip with their finger, see the enemy take a peek, BLAM.

    My friend knew all about these. Apparently they are from Korea and being repatrioted. In between his Flagish anti-Obama argle bargle I gleaned that gun nuts have been wanting to get their mitts on these for a long, long time.

    Sounds like a great plan for ISIS kind of domestic terrorism. Put lots of guns the hands of paranoid people with a hate agenda.

    Reminds us of what "make america great, again" really references in terms of the time period they want.

    Thanks! These are not the ones he thought, he will be thrilled.

    I asked him is he was CMP and he laughed. Later my co-worker told me he's actually placed at nationals and he was a sniper in active service. Yikes! I went shooting with him once and had no basis of comparison, but I guess it's unusual to hit the center of the bullseye with every shot at max distance with three different weapons.

    My father had a standard Garand issued to him in basic training. He had a an M1C variant issued to him when he went to his "specialty school" after basic. He claimed the base model was more accurate because the mounts on M1C had a negative effect on operation (and accuracy) when rifle was warm from sustained fire. He only shot the M1D variant a couple times.

    Then he admitted today's average hunting rifle in .30 is just as or more accurate.

    We are basically arming our own IRA, yeah. When the rubber meets the road we presumably have law enforcement or national guard or if all else fails the actual military, but hey guess what political ideology dominates all those groups?

    The Rwanda genocide started because of radio stations broadcasting to extremists that they should rise up and kill. If there's a right wing coup d'etat attempt here it will probably be orchestrated the same way. God only knows if those listeners have been so desensitized by decades of Rush and Coulter and LaPierre and CPAC and InfoWars that they're capable of actually going out and slaughtering their neighbors. Hopefully we'll never find out.

    That sounds like my father (and his retired recon Marine best friend).

    Kinda tough learning to shoot rifle and handgun from guys that miss (meaning outside the 8 ring) once a month or so.

    By pure luck I hit dead center with the very first 3 shots I ever fired in my life (albeit at the shortest kiddy distance possible) before I gradually pulled off to the right and then overcompensated and lost the target completely. It was an Italian WW2 carbine, beautiful but heavier than I can imagine carrying in the Alps to try to shoot Hemingway or whatever. Mark looked at me kinda funny like "have you been f-cking with me all these years?" until actual ability and experience kicked in.

    It was a glorious thirty seconds, though.

    You started thinking about what you were doing instead of just doing.
    It happens to my golf game every spring too: First round out I'm Jack Nicklaus; second round out the brain tries to repeat what I'd done and people in the surrounding fairways are taking cover.

    That "ping" when the clip empties is accurately depicted in (I forget which one now) a video game I used to play.
