Gun Thread (8-4-2013)

SSK Brings Out The Big Guns

The .950 JDJ, the largest caliber center fire rifle ever made, looks and sounds like one shot would send a grizzly bear flying into the air.

Of course it won't, because physics, but the video of it being fired is entertaining nonetheless.

SSK Industries has a long history of innovative firearms and ammo, with the .375 JDJ offering for the T/C Contender being something I've been interested in for a long time. I really should pull the trigger on that one of these days.


Stopping Power and High Minimum Capacity Mags

Maet linked this story in the ONT a while back.

Sergeant Timothy Gramins fired 43 rounds at an assailant shooting at him and hit him 14 times with 6 shots in supposedly fatal locations. But the shooter just kept on coming.

Give it a read and keep it in mind next time some anti-gunner who's watched too much TV tells you you don't need more than X rounds in your gun.


Gun Of The Week

Marksmanship Award



Gun Of The Week - Answer

That's the Heckler & Koch HK21 belt-fed GPMG in 7.62x51 NATO (.308 Win.)


What. In. The. F*ck?

I was hoping this was a late April Fool's gag, but, no, the military actually is looking to "go green" with its ammo.

The Army’s Picatinny Arsenal is working on a “green” version of the M80A1 7.62 mm bullet, which troops are supposed to start being issued in 2014, according to an Army press release.

The Army has been looking to “green” small caliber ammo for some time now. In 2010, the Army switched to the greener 5.56 mm M855A1 Enhanced Performance Round.

It'd be one thing if we were experimenting with different bullet materials to more efficiently kill the enemy. I'm all for that. But replacing lead for environmental reasons is a solution to a non-existent problem (as is well described in the G&A piece linked in the article).


Armslist Suit Dismissed

Good.

Armslist.com isn’t liable for the brutal murder of an Illinois woman shot to death by a man who used the online firearms marketplace to make an illegal gun purchase, a federal judge ruled this week.

The actual seller got jail time, but that wasn't good enough for the Brady Center's campaign of anti-second amendment lawfare and harassment.
