Re: Shooting Congress-members

The police find a list of names in the man's vehicle of GOP Congressional representatives. They can find that list, but not a motive. It's curious. Me personally, I think the whole set of laws dealing with 'hate crime' should go away since a murder is pretty much by definition an act of hatred. It's...

Shooting Congress-members

Parts of the story are routine, others are weird, but the most baffling thing of all is the part where the FBI are still looking for a motive. They did that same thing with the "Pulse Club" shooting in Orlando. It's probably the same reason they just eventually chalked-up Major Nidal Hassan to "work...

Re: Michale Slager pleads gulity in federal court

It was either a 'clean shoot' or a 'bad shoot'. In this case, it's agreed by all parties that it was a 'bad shoot'.

Re: Canning a Hi Point 9 mm Carbine

Thanks for the reply. So, running one "forever" on that gun, as I likely would, it'd require sub-sonic 147's and then fiddling with higher strength springs and spring preloads to suit.

Re: Canning a Hi Point 9 mm Carbine

Does anyone know if one can effectively suppress a Hi Point 9 mm carbine? I don't know what "effectively" means. You can put a silencer on one, and it will be notably quieter. Will it achieve "hearing safe"? That depends on what ammunition you use, what silencer you use, and what you consider to be...
