Gun Thread: 10-19-2014 [WeirdDave]

WeirdDave pointed this Gun Thread at me and requested demanded I format it and post it for him.
I tried peeing on myself to make this scary Gun Thread go away, but that didn't work!
Neither did "sheltering in place" until the Gun Thread lost interest and wandered off.
So here it is...

Gun of the Week


Defensive Gun Use of the Week

Democratic State Lawmaker Opens Fire on Suspected Armed Robbers in the Streets of Harrisburg
The linked article notes that in this incident, nobody was shot, and these types of situations don't get reported as a "defensive gun use." They do tend to get reported if the victim is not armed, however they are usually reported under a different category: murder.


This is just awesome on so many levels. Video of a man playing The Star Spangled Banner with a Ruger 10/22. The video was uploaded by a company,, that manufactures these steel targets, designed to produce different notes when struck by a bullet. They claim 22LR is the optimum round to use. I'm thinking that they should branch out into other calibers, who knows, in the future we could teach our kids musical arts and gun arts at the same time. Stand the student in front of a set of these targets with their concealed carry weapon, then call out a piece of music. "Ode to joy! Fire!" "Jimmy Cracked Corn, Fire!" It could make for some interesting police reports. "Well officer, he drew his gun on me and I got him with Happy Birthday."

Gunhinged - NYT Version

Scarier Than Ebola:

Tighter restrictions on firearms. More than 30,000 Americans die from gunshots every year. Anyone looking for an epidemic to freak out about can find one right there.

GOTW Answer

That is, of course, a Mauser c96. The one pictured is one of the famous "Red Nine" editions, produced during WWI to use the 9mm parabellum round that the German army preferred instead of the original 7.63x25mm Mauser. This is the famous "broomhandle" pistol, so named because of the shape of the grip.
