When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
Well, 2 years ago a guy told me that no human being ever survived being hit with a .44 magnum.

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Dirty Harry, "It'll blow your head clean off". Another one told to me as a child: a 9mm has so much shocking power that it will knock someone down if you hit them in the finger with it. Also, it will go through a truck engine block.
America: Your government is not ignoring you, it's insulting you.
The Bill of Rights: Void where prohibited by law.
Thats whay 9mm get a bad rap in regards to power (please no caliber war) . They were COM hits. Now I know if ya shoot a 9mm ya hafta shoot for the hands!?
The guy at the gun store says it so it must be true... after all he works at a gun store!
This is mine. That is yours.
Lets keep it that way.

You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
Ego will kill you. Leave it at home.
Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
Glocks and other plastic guns can pass right through a metal detector

I read in one anti article that the 7mm magnum would obliterate an Elk.
I guess the 30.06 that I used was severly underpowered, I still had to dress him out. Maybe I'll switch over to the 7mm so I can just pick up the pieces already to go.

If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand
Now come on, it is not all that hard to make a gun fully auto - it's selective fire that is the challenge. All fully auto requires is the firing pin to jam at the right position.
