    How do you know she isn’t about to shoot?

    It needs to be in my home. Unfortunately, a family emergency has me on a buying freeze.

    Franklin Armory Providence ("Non-semiautomatic")

    A double action revolver uses mechanical action to load the next round. But that isn't considered semi-automatic. Now I also understand that a revolver doesn't eject the spent case. But still. Like I said above, I think the order of the action will determine how this is classified.
  4. I noticed that too. I wonder if a furniture company was nearby, or if the company doing it also made those before the war.

    Franklin Armory Providence ("Non-semiautomatic")

    So ive been thinking about that a lot. There are two ways that I can see this functioning. Pull the trigger, it’s a short pull like a bolt action and the round goes off. Continue pulling and it ejects and loads the next round. I think they could make a good case that is semi automatic. pulling the trigger cycles the bolt and loads the round and then releases the firing pin. I think this is closer to a double action revolver and they would have a hard time classifying it as semi auto without also reclassifying da revolvers.
  6. One of Franklin Armory's offerings at SHOT Show this year will be this thing. https://www.recoilweb.com/franklin-armory-announces-the-providence-145108.html?fbclid=IwAR3vB28LQzxZAjipSLo2qkQzVU9eO0ytx-4JLvpCsLZuU6Fm8lp2F8JOlcE Check out the link. I'm not sure what to make of it, but at least its not as dumb as a barrel with straight rifling.

    I tend to agree. I think the OP was actually the party in the wrong here. As much as I think its important for us to be able to carry, I think its equally important that we respect the wishes of privately owned places we visit. They made their stance clear. That should have been the end of it.
  8. Thats awesome. I'll sight it in for you.
  9. Here is a very fascinating read about repurposing calvary blades into fighting knives for WWII. Also the campaign to gather knives and send to troops. https://blog.knife-depot.com/wwii-demand-for-blades-led-to-knife-crowdsourcing/?fbclid=IwAR0F9-vVRPWBnGI7tbxEaAB1vVT1wYZu8RwGgGfUXaqu8i9E5JO7oM2OYDo

    Cop shoots partner in back

    You said it was an accident. Beebee said it was negligence and you agreed. Which is it? I'm of the opinion that there is no such thing as an accident. Only negligence.

  12. This was kind of leaked a couple of months ago but now its official as its on their site. https://www.magpul.com/firearms-accessories/magpul-scorpion-series They are releasing a 35 round mag for 20 bucks, a grip for 25 and a mag release paddle for 25. I'll probably buy all three once they are available.

    Cop shoots partner in back

    Take the uniform off of the guy. Now how do you feel about it? Just an average Joe walking through his house with his gun in his hand and he shoots his wife or kid in the back. Do your feelings change? Cause mine don't. The only standard I'm holding him to are the four rules of gun safety.
  14. I find this to be a fascinating research project. I understand that the results could potentially be used by the other side but this research could also lead to an increase in development of recoil mitigation devices. I look forward to seeing what comes out of this. https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2019/01/09/firearm-recoil-traumatic-brain-injury/
  15. I have no problem with HP. I have owned a C9, twice. Given the opportunity, I'd throw another in the safe. I'm interested to see what they come out with.
