    Might be the same "expert" I met once. An instructor at the Army MP school in Fort Gordon, Georgia, told us this same thing, practically word for word.


    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.

    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.

    I heard the 9mm one that it travels so fast it puts the body into shock if it gets hit "even in the finger". LOL

    No, but you can repair most AK malfunctions like that!

    I actually know a guy that was shot with a .44 magnum.....and he survived. I also remember the old .44 myth about it breaking an engine block too. Anyway, there is lots of BS out there isn't it?
    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.

    Hydra shocks are named so becuse they make the human body go into shock "quicker" than any other bullet type

    The AR in AR15 stands for Assault Rifle.

    They must shoot 42 bullets, because the good ol revolvers in Hollywood shoot 10-12 shots each. Wish I could get me a good wheel gun that held 10 -12 44 mags. Then I could blow 10 telephone poles in half

    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.

    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.
