    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.

    Haven’t watched the vid (phone is bugged up) but if that’s the .950 JDJ they’re $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.

    Well outta my price range. But I haven't seen 20 mm rounds on the shelves at Walmart either. .

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

    They’ve only made a few of them. It’s just a novelty imo. A very expensive overkill novelty.

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

    Default The Show Us Your Guns Thread...

    I’d sorta like one just ‘cause it’s cool but then that’s another caliber to keep rounds for. Granted it wouldn’t 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.
