    You're taking all the fun out of it

    It does remind me however, of Shelby Foote on the Ken Burns Civil War series talking about how people today have the common misconception that medicine of that era was so archaic with all the amputations when in fact it was that high caliber ball and low muzzle velocity would smash bone and leave nothing worth saving, making amputations the best option for life saving.

    Havenít watched the vid (phone is bugged up) but if thatís the .950 JDJ theyíre $40 (!) a round according to one video I saw. Something like 34000 ft/lbs muzzle energy.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned (I don't feel like sifting through 28 pages!), but I saw a thing the other day where people are making functional guns via the use of 3D printers... Reminds me of that film with Clint Eastwood and Johm Malcovich.

    What purpose does that serve? Imagine if you tried to kill a deer.

    Exactly, no practical purpose really. Just for (big) kicks at the range.

    Default The Show Us Your Guns Thread...

    Iíd sorta like one just Ďcause itís cool but then thatís another caliber to keep rounds for. Granted it wouldnít be a carry piece so no need for lots of $ tied up in training rounds.

    Truth be told I have every caliber but 25 auto for handguns so it's not that big of a deal.
