know why a pistol is better than a woman?

7 posts in this topic

You can spend all kinds of money on a beautiful woman in a dinner date, & still you won't be doing any banging later at night.

Which is a 50/50 chance.

Spend the same amount of money on ammo, you'll be banging a lot more with a smile on your face.

Especially if it is a .22 with a silencer. My preference is a M21 Beretta with my own design of oval, 3.5" of can in front of the 1/2" longer, externaly threaded after market barrel, for a 9" OAL.  14 ozs and will reliably, standing with both hands, no support, hit 2" disks at 50 ft. Given that most critters dont flee when the shot is quiet, that's enough accuracy for a lot of fun. 

 

Sig has a 1/2" longer threaded barrel for their .22lr conversion on their P938 pocket 9mm, which fits on the Kimber Micro9 just fine. The end result is a gun that's 6.5" long, so the OAL is 10", but it's still just 16 oz. it's easier to arrange than the "canned" M21, (by quite a bit)  and if you dont mind disabling your 9mm, the kit is a bit lighter than the M21. Also, the .22 conversions, of any type, are not considered to be guns. They can be shipped in the mail to anyone. My preference for hikes is to have both the 14 oz canned M21 and the 15 oz Micro9 9mm. The total weight is less than a 4" .38, and no more than a glock 17's empty weight. For most any shot on the trail, the .22 is what you want, but when the .22's not enough, I like to get field experience with my ccw gun and load.

 

When on the deer stand, it's nice to be able to silence that bluejay thats yelling:" danger here, danger!".  :-) or pop starlings/grackles for entertainment, or take any rabbit/squirrel that comes along, all without running off any deer that's headed my way.

I'll say it onetime, ( ITS NOT A SILENCER ) it's a suppressor.

If you have a can on your firearm, it only suppresses the sound.

The end user of any firearm that uses a can knows, it's not completely silent. LOL.

If your using a can & this is a big if, you can hear a pin drop when using the can, then I would call it silent.

It's not so silent, if you can't hear a pin drop when using your firearm.

    • Books and wood carving here.....and sutureing,.. to go with the wood carving.
    • We are dealing with a narcissistic blackmailer like a robber in a bank with a room full of hostages and that is the scenario we have a madman with nukes threatening the whole world, if his demands are not met he may well sell weapons to our enemies, to bolster their position. When there is a madman in the room full of hostages with a gun you take him out. In this case we cannot afford for any of his military elite to survive him because if they have orders to launch or attack Seoul a city of millions he or surviving hierarchy will lash out. The strike has to be unseen and lay waste to Pyongyang timed with strikes to wipe out the military ability to use rockets and artillery I am just as sure they have Exocet m38 type missiles as well as many weapons we have turned from because of world opinion, that places us at a small disadvantage in close combat or naval surface warfare. It is a well known eastern tactic to get in so close so that their enemy cannot use any extraordinary weapons without killing themselves. This is why a conventional war with North Korea as it would kill millions in Seoul our troops and destroy many of our vessels and aircraft that threat alone make consider the nuclear option is the only course or we risk millions of innocent civilians and 35 thousand of our own troops as well as many thousands of sailors and air crews.  nuclear weapons are mass destruction indiscriminate and have long lasting implications if there is any destruction and indiscriminate killing I want it to be on them not us or South Koreans. Those that think we could merge the two are misunderstanding that like the old Japanese soldiers of World War 11 they were so indoctrinated they thought we were going to cannibalize rape and turn them all into salves as well as their leader was "god" most are just as institutionalized as a life sentenced criminal.  I sure don't like this but unless we are willing to fight the Korean War all over again with 10 to  100 times more losses against a country that is but an attack dog  of China that has gone off it's leash. China has created a Frankenstein and the monster may turn on them and that is what China fears just as much as a war that pushes millions of refugees over their borders. India and China have sent troops to repel refugees ------- Whhaaatt no open borders whats the world coming to.
    • Really great post and questions. I'm a woman and I'll ponder this a bit more before responding. (No offense taken at all BTW).
    • yea it's been a while glad your back.
    • If it were not for spell check it would look like the ramblings of Ted Kaczynski, bad enough my my lack of punctuation and tendency of dropping letters from my ring and pinky fingers it would take the investigators of the dead sea scrolls to decipher the ramblings IMO. Or did you mean Chicago typewriter ? I have proof read my stuff and found I drooped a paragraph of essential information primary to the topic.
