Re: Surprised this made mainstream news

I admire that guy getting involved and killing the attacker. Even if I had a concealed carry weapon I think I'd be too frightened to get involved, and actually fire the gun.

Re: The mighty spring

Mag guns require power to fire. I was thinking more of the magnet being able to repel each other and act as a spring when pushed together then released.

They are neat though, fast projectile around Mach 7!

Unless there is some unforeseen Alien intervention here this is all on the parents. Very fortunate the kids did not play with them pretending to shoot!

The mighty spring

I have been thinking about this off and on for a while now. Without a little coiled piece of metal guns simply would not exist. It is the only object I can think off that can store energy transferred from human motion, and expel that energy precisely [more]

Re: More toys!

They have had remote control apps for iOS and Android for quite some time now. Nikon and Canon have this built in to some of their newer models as well.

I have a setup that is wireless even though my 5d3 does not have wifi built in.

Appeals court upholds assault weapons ban

If a ban on semi-automatic guns and large-capacity magazines reduces the perceived risk from a mass shooting, and makes the public feel safer as a result, that’s a substantial benefit,” the 12-page majority opinion says.

Re: Gun Breaks Apart on Firing

A guy I work with his son had a Glock pistol blow apart on him. There was a defective run and they fixed it. It did wound his hand although nothing permanent or life threatening it did require a trip to the doctor. He now wears gloves all the time [more]

Re: Question ISO vs F-stop/lens aperature

I am looking at the Canon 70-200 2.8/f lens. It covers a range that I already have covered with other lenses but the f2.8 focal length is significantly faster then my current lenses and I am trying to justify the purchase. Thanks,again. - [more]

Re: Switzerland and guns

Certainly not me, but I know people who have a number of vintage guitars, cumulatively worth at least $200K.

Re: Switzerland and guns

A gentleman at a local shooting range once let me shoot his Kimber. I liked it better than the Sig Sauer that I was shooting. It felt better in my hand and I shot better with it.

Re: Switzerland and guns

Though they have no safety, Sig Sauer pistols are considered one of the safest handguns on the market - There are numerous safety features incorporated into their design. Our Country's Navy SEALS rely on, at least, one of these Swiss [more]
