    Default My want list just got bigger

    And much more expensive!

    Thought this was too cool not to share.

    You know that little thing inside your head that keeps you from saying things you shouldn't? Yeah, I don't have one of those.

    How to piss off a conservative, lie to them. How to piss off a liberal, tell them the truth.

    You can't fix democrat.

    I have always said I was going to build something for the 4th but I never did it.

    I got the idea from shooting a Charlilivile rifle. .72 cal. 21 heavy walled seamless 0.75 inch tubes welded to a bit of 0.5 inch steel plate. [ I am not going into more detail than that because I am pretty sure it would fall under the legal definition of building a gun and that would make the idea unlawful. ] These tubes would hold roughly the same load the rifle used at roughly the same caliber. Since there was no ball in the rifle there was not that much recoil. But it was very very very loud. Much louder than an AR or a .308 or any other gun I have ever fired. I would compare the sound to the sound of a quarter stick of dynamite.

    One hell of a 21 gun salute to the USA, but probably very unlawful and therefore not at all a good idea. That is why I haven't done it yet. I can avoid doing a thing but I can not avoid thinking about doing a thing.

    Now you mention it, ST, I have recently developed an affection for Ruger No.1 rifles. Not as expensive as your Hotchkiss, but still - uh - demanding.
    I'm not really a professional gunfighter, but I used to play one in reality.

    My father recently sold a as new Ruger #1 International 30-06 for $400. He didn't like the muzzle blast due to the short barrel. I really liked that rifle because of the mannlicher stock. They just have a classy look to them.
