    Yeah, I've had that conversation with a sheriff's deputy down here in Texas back in the 70's on an occasion or two. The occasion of the high-speed chase is still etched in my memory.
    No possible rapidity of fire can atone for habitual carelessness of aim with the first shot.

    If you shoot someone outside your door, drag the body inside before the cops arrive so it will look like you shot him after he got inside the house.

    Hoo, boy. Where do you start?

    I laugh at it now. Thankfully, we had an uneventful Sunday.

    No training other than the military. Pistol in a Mexican carry. Out on patrol like Steven Segal.

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Naaaa, "What a waste of ammo and money, buying a machinegun." You'll never get your money back in a millinon years. BOYYYY did one of my friends ever eat his words. In fact, he tried to no avail to purchase one ( an MP5) while they were still "cheap" at the price of 6500.00. That was quite a while ago, around 1992. I paid 1500.00 for mine back in 1985 and I was paying the going price for one

    If we just had a semi-auto shotgun, or any gun really, that would sound like a pump racking when you kicked the safety off, there'd probably be a lot more running going on.

    I have an RRA since 2009 and it still works great for me w/ no issues. I see nothing wrong with him or anyone else owning one.

    There is nothing wrong, at all, with owning one. But calling the Colt a piece of junk and extolling the virtues of an RRA over a Colt is simply...bad gun advice, as is the focus of this thread.
