      “That’s a bigun!”

      What is – “What no woman has ever said about what’s hanging between the legs of a brain-damaged, mentally-ill demented troll that stalks people on-line, Alex?”

      Someone like that deserves to live in New Jersey… 😉

  1. And also according to anti-gunners.

    One asked how does my son handle the recoil of a powerful 5.56? I said easily as there isn’t any worth noticing. 7.62x54r he did notice. But also noted the awful bolt and trigger on the Mosin-Nagant.

      Did you invite them to experience it for themselves, SC?

      • You can’t ask a hoplophobe to fire a weapon. They get nosebleed just looking at it. Break out into hives if they get within arm’s reach. They’ll go into convulsions the moment physical contact is made. When they start convulsing, the only thing you can do is to gun them down before they shoot you with your own weapon.

          You would be surprised. Some anti-gun twits have changed their minds after a session at a range…

      • Too much paperwork with the P650 form. I was willing to do it for my son. Not for a homophobe.

        In 3 months my son has a reputation at my range for being a good competitor, a fast learner, and a very safe user.

      Gunpowder was rather expensive back then, it took quite a bit of labor to produce it…

      • What I’m saying is back then they had bullets and powder to shoot that big stuff.
        Today there telling me that cant keep up with the demand of small arms. It’s not that they cant, its because they dont want to.
        The powder to launch that would probably fuel 10,000 223’s just guessing, I know black powder yadda yadda, it still was a bunch.

        • Actually, WAY more than 10,000 rounds. For example: (16″ rifle charge on battleship) = 660 lbs. X 7000 grains/lbs = 4,620,000 grains ÷ (guesstimate load for .223) 25 grains = 184,000 rounds.

    • So that’s were that went, that’s not a shell , that was my container that I kept my neutrinos in.
      And here along I was accusing Juan and Bill for stealing it.
      Damn, to late for apologies now.
      Whoops

  2. Ok, I get this meme that isn’t a meme is thought to be a meme but it isn’t a meme ’cause anyone can call any picture a meme if its a meme or not a meme but not all pictures are memes and this isn’t really a meme picture suitable for an actual meme that would be understandable as a meme.

    • There’s no evidence it missed the target, but it certainly was a dud.

      This fire mission was probably intended to clear an LZ for rotary wing assets.

      Quoted from the Naval Weapons data:

      “The High Capacity (HC) shell can create a crater 50 feet wide and 20 feet deep (15 x 6 m). During her deployment off Vietnam, USS New Jersey (BB-62) occasionally fired a single HC round into the jungle and so created a helicopter landing zone 200 yards (180 m) in diameter and defoliated trees for 300 yards (270 m) beyond that.”

  3. Interesting, I’d say 16 inch qualifies for hi power rifle competition.

    During World War II, we had an admiral who had been a competition shooter and later used guns like this as if they were sniper rifles.

    Here’s to Ching Lee, Bravo sir!

  4. “What do you think, deer are wearing Kevlar vests?”
    -Joe Biden, April 2021

    I’m looking forward to the US military adopting the new 6.8 x 51mm round (a.k.a. .277 Sig Fury), because maybe, just maybe, then some of the media might stop calling the puny little 5.56mm cartridge a “high caliber, high-powered, military bullet [sic] too powerful for civilians to own!”

    They’ll probably still call it that, but one can always hope.
