arma virumque cano (et alia)
A "silencer" on a revolver? Do the prerequisites for "gun control" advocacy include scientific illiteracy, as well as moral bankruptcy?And before anyone gives me any grief, the pictured revolver clearly ain't a Nagant M1895.
You beat me to it. I was going to say that only two or three revolver designs can be suppressed. I love my Nagant.
When I read your first sentence, my brain immediately went to the Nagant. Had a good chuckle as I read on.
How is finding ammo for your Nagant, Greg? I had an opportunity to buy one at a great price, but passed because of gun control. I was figuring you can't find ammo for that on the self, and I was forbidden from buying on-line.
TS, does California's no-mail-order-allowed law also prohibit online purchase of ammo components?
I was looking at getting one about 6 years back or so--ammo wasn't everywhere, but wasn't impossible to find--maybe one of every 4-6 gun shops would keep a bit of it in stock--if memory serves it was around $20 for a box of 50. Mostly new production from Prvi Partizan. Haven't looked for it since then except online--which I understand isn't an option for you. It disappeared there due to the ammo panic, but has reappeared at around $25 a box.I too am interested to hear what finding it is like for Greg--interesting how each state, and even regions within long states like mine, have such different markets.Either way, look around once the ammo drought subsides out there--you might find it--especially in shops that cater to collectors.
Here in Arkansas, we can buy ammo on-line, but my local shop carries a box or two of the oddball cartridge. The Nagant can also shoot .32 S&W Long rounds, though those don't form the gas seal. I've heard that it can handle .32 H&R Magnums, but I've never tried those, since I can't find any.Someone told me that the Nagant round can be formed from a .30 Carbine case by trimming the brass to the right length. I must look into that.
Interesting--never heard about using the .32 S&W Long. Makes sense though. Course, the weird thing is that those are only SLIGHTLY easier to find around here, and the same price or more.I think I've heard of a guy making Nagant brass from .30 Carbine--course, this guy can make anything out of anything and specializes in making oddball old calibers.
Kurt, that "loophole" is still open... for now.
I wonder if soon to be ex Senator, now inmate Leland Yee took any campaign contributions from say, gun traffickers while introducing legislation against gun rights. What is worse?
Mikeb, by all means, continue believing that nonsense. While you're deluding yourself about the bogeyman, we're continuing to defend our rights.
"In fact, the former New York City mayor did not even bristle at the thought of going dollar for dollar in the political arena with the nation’s preeminent gun rights organization, the National Rifle Association.“You think you can really outspend the NRA and the gun manufacturers?” Couric asked.“Oh sure,” Bloomberg responded. “I’m not the only funder of this. All of these groups raise money. There are other people who understand. They want their kids to be safe.”http://www.guns.com/2014/03/17/michael-bloomberg-will-outspend-nra-gun-manufacturers-video/ Of course, the argument can be made that money spent isn't the only contributing factor in winning or losing an election. I personally believe that money spent on advertising doesn't mean spit if you vote against a constituent's beliefs."New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a staunch supporter of stricter gun laws, donated $350,000 to Morse and Giron. Billionaire philanthropist Eli Broad gave a separate $250,000 check to help the legislators, while Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) repeatedly issued fundraising calls for Giron in emails to her supporters. The Denver Post reported Monday that those in Morse and Giron's corner had collected nearly $3 million, while proponents of the recall raised about $540,000."http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/10/colorado-recall-results_n_3903209.html
Jeez, I thought you guys were never going to get around to the point of the post.
Why bother, Mikeb? The point was foolish.
I second that. Dumb cartoon--our nerd discussion was more fun.
