Weekend Gun Thread

(Can you identify this pistol?)

Journalism. Who? What? Where? When? Why? Obviously the MSM has forgotten or failed to learn the basics. The Left just doesn't get it.

On Nov. 5, a gunman took the lives of 26 worshippers gathered at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas. When Devin Patrick Kelley open fired during service, he also wounded another 20 victims. Stephen Willeford, who lived nearby, heard gunshots and charged into the church wielding his own gun—hitting Kelley in the leg and torso. Willeford and a motorist later chased Kelley as he fled. Kelley then was found dead in his car.

The Sutherland Springs shooting sparked renewed debate about whether guns should be allowed in churches, as a means of protection. Texas governor Dan Patrick believes it shows how the right person, with a gun, can be a hero: “Everyone in the state was very thankful for the brave Texan who stopped the attack through the exercise of his Second Amendment rights.” Texas Republicans called for more churchgoers to arm themselves on Sundays.

The perp had murder in his heart and on his mind. Had it been illegal to carry a gun into a church do you really think it would have stopped him?

Instead of worrying about Texas law why not go after the other government agencies that failed.

Regular reader and commenter, Red, sent me the following from Starline.

Great Shots Newsletter

Starline is now producing .277 Wolverine brass. The .277 Wolverine is a 5.56 NATO based wildcat that was designed to give near 6.8 SPC performance out of an AR-15 type rifle, without requiring a specialized bolt or magazines.

Since the .277 Wolverine only requires a barrel change, it is one of the most affordable AR conversions. The Wolverine is a great all-purpose cartridge that gives excellent down range performance for its size, and is also well suited to pistol or SBR, and subsonic/suppressed applications.

Barrels are available for Savage bolt actions and AR’s, as well as dies and other accessories from Mad Dog Weapons Systems.

So Red, being the inquisitive Moron that he is posed the following statement and question.

never heard of this round before...

which raises the question/idea: should one stick with just a few calibers, or say the magic words and go Pokeman style and collect them all?

at our house we've pretty much gone with Option B, but it might be fun to ask The Horde to list the various cartridges they used before the tragic boating accident.

So have you heard of this caliber?

Do you own this caliber?

Before the tragic canoe accident what was your philosophy on caliber collecting?
