Tippmann M-4 Full Auto 22LR

Plinkster22 demos the  Tippmann M-4 Full Auto 22 LR.

“Giggle Switch” indeed !

My apologies for using a Screwutube link.  This post has been in my queue for quite sometime and before my promise of not using Screwutube videos.

I have never fired a full auto and there are several classic machine guns I would like to shoot just because !!

Personally, the full auto 22 looks like a blast to shoot, but at some point it would get to be just wasting ammo.

 

 

I’m Sorry We Have To Have This Conversation……………

There have been a lot of “mass shootings” in the news lately and the Fake administration is pushing some very serious anti Second Amendment laws.

Like I said, there has been a lot of “mass shootings” in the news lately.

If you really think that the Fake administration actually has a hand in these shootings, you need to replace the tinfoil and get a CAT scan.

The depths that The Swamp and Liberals can go is almost bottomless, but you have to seriously consider how  utterly unpossible it would be to be behind a series of “mass shootings.”

Todays Second Amendment Educational Challenge……..

During German class in college, a classmate read a passage from a text that included the “Danube River.”

Instead of correctly pronouncing it as “dan-yoob”, he said “da-new-be.”

Herr Himmler corrected the student and the student replied, “I guess I’m just dumb.”

Herr Himmler replied, “You are not dumb, but you are ignorant and that is something you can change.”

That’s always stuck with me.

Now, ignorance is the only unlimited matter in the universe and there is flat out almost limitless ignorance about the Second Amendment and guns.

 

The below post is a perfect example of that:

The United States And Guns ‹ Views and Observations ‹ Reader — WordPress.com

When the Constitution was created in the 18th century, it was a different time. There were no smartphones, communication was slow, the standing army was tiny, and many people lived in small rural communities or farms that were isolated and far away from help if something occurred. If you lived on a small farm in the 1700s, you couldn’t jump in the car and go to the grocery store. Small farmers frequently had to be much more self-reliant growing a significant amount of their own food and sometimes hunting for meat. Also if a criminal came to the farm, they couldn’t call 911. In many ways, they were on their own because it could take hours or longer to alert the authorities and get help. Something else to consider is that the muskets of the 18th century were much slower to reload and much less accurate than weapons today. Someone with significant practice could get off maybe three shots in a minute, give or take. In real world circumstances, it was likely often less than three a minute. And finally, the United States of the 18th century and early 19th centuries relied heavily on militias for defense because the standing army was tiny.
In other words, the Second Amendment was written in another time when the circumstances were vastly different than today

Your assignment today is to visit that site and correct the ignorant soul.

BUT !!!

Please be nice and respectful.

 

Shoot/Don’t Shoot?

My conceal carry insurance is with USCCA.  I get a very good monthly magazine that has really good information and this month, there was also the below email about a shooting situation to discuss.

At an Enterprise, Alabama, Waffle House, one customer knocked a veteran with PTSD to the floor, the Southeast Sun reported. Management asked the attacker to leave. When the veteran arose, he asked the clerk to call the police.

He then went outside and told his attacker that the police were on the way. The attacker said he had a gun and appeared to reach into his truck. He came at the victim, slamming the veteran’s head against the wall.

The veteran then drew his lawfully carried firearm and shot the attacker in the leg. The state charged the veteran with aggravated assault, but a judge dismissed the case.

As usual, there’s information missing that I would like to know.

But, I will agree that this was a good shoot and I would say it wasn’t really a “stand your ground” case as the attacker had slammed the victim into a wall so the person would be acting in legal self defense (since the attacker stated he had a gun) and the victim would still be in mortal danger.

The mistake was following the attacker outside.

Nothing good ever comes from doing that.

 

Bad Decision, Bad Shoot………………… Update

UPDATED

Four shell casings were recovered, Scheller said, adding that they were spread out on a southbound path near Route 12, proving Glover followed the teens as he fired shots.

Police later recovered a 9mm Ruger that belongs to Glover’s girlfriend in a nearby sewer grate, Scheller said.

Glover has been charged with two counts of aggravated battery with a firearm. More serious charges could be filed at a later date while police continue to gather cellphone video, surveillance video and other evidence, Scheller said.

YEP !!!!

Criminal activity, a bad shoot and he’s boned.

Volo shooting: 2 teens shot, 1 fatally after fight over stolen vehicle

Two teenage boys from Carol Stream were shot, one of them fatally, Sunday after getting into a fight with a Round Lake Beach man who allegedly found them in his stolen vehicle in northwest suburban Volo.

The 35-year-old man saw the boys, both 17, in his vehicle about 2:45 a.m. near Route 12 and Route 120 after it had been stolen several days earlier, according to the Lake County sheriff’s office.

The boys fled south in the vehicle on Route 12 but ran out of gas after about a mile, and pulled into a parking lot in the 30400 block of Route 12, the sheriff’s office said.

A fight ensued and at some point, someone pulled out a gun and fired shots, the sheriff’s office said. Both 17-year-olds were struck, leaving one dead and the other seriously wounded.

It’s unclear who pulled the gun and shot, but since both of the teens were shot, I will for now jump to the conclusion that the man that had his car stolen was the shooter.

Two 17 year olds from Carol Stream in Volo at 2:45 am.  Carol Stream to Volo is over 30 miles. The car was stolen several days earlier. (Round Lake Beach is 5 miles from Volo)

Shooting Pigeons Is “Unpatriotic”?

From a local 1918 newspaper:

Pigeons Needed For War Work: Don’t Shoot Them

Don’t shoot pigeons, warns Uncle Sam, It isn’t patriotic.

The birds are used on the war fronts to carry messages and the signal corps is training thousands of the Antwerp or Homing variety.

Many persons have impaired this branch of the service by shooting the birds, being innocent of that fact that they are being trained for the army.

A law was passed April 19 making it unlawful to “entrap, capture, shoot, kill, possess or detain the carrier pigeon, which is owned by the United States.  Each bird bears on its leg a metal bank marked “U.S.A”  A maximum penalty of $100 fine, or imprisonment for six months, or both, is provided under the law.

It is considered unpatriotic to shoot pigeons of any kind as the person indulging in this pastime cannot differentiate between the ordinary and the homing pigeons.

 

When I was a kid, I unknowingly shot a banded pigeon.
