Actually Tony, I was beginning to wonder if you had ever fired a weapon.
I rest easy now knowing that you have, and...
Why is it I feel we have another real rifleman here?
You are right on!
All the best!
Hit probability and effectiveness are two different topics altogether.
Your original post said:
"The greater hit probability of auto fire...
And neither can most "experts", if shooting at a moving target.
"X" marks the spot, and a spirt is a drip under pressure.
"It can fire on automatic as well as semi-automatic, so with its 30-round magazine it does the job of a sub-machine gun as well as that of a...
Well gentlemen, history states otherwise.
We will simply have to agree to disagree.
No, I don't think the Brits had any excuse for their many defeats at the hands of Rommel. The Brits were defeated time and time again by Rommel....
I will have to disagree that "citizens cannot hope to defeat modern standing armies".
Of course, we are talking "guerilla" tactics when...
It's kind of hard to skin an animal or cut a steak with a shotgun.
The bow is much older than the "Medieval" period.
The advantage of both...
And of course, one MUST have a good knife. If that takes up one of my choices, I''l take the knife before the shotgun.
If I get one more...

3. A 12 gauge shot gun.
To clarify on a previous post my my learned colleague Grieg, I want to say that the 7.62 X 39 (AK-47) caliber does not necessarily have greater...
I cannot agree with that Roel. Never in WW2 did Rommel "get what he wanted", and Normandy was no exception.
Rommel knew that, "we must stop...
And Grieg, neither were you. You differ with my opinion but offer only your own to counter it. You are beginning to impress me as the son of the...
I beg to differ Grieg. Those Vietnam vets I hunted with for years all discarded their M16's in favor of captured AK47's. This is no myth; it is...
.45 ACP, and that's a personal preference.
I really think that what one considers to be "number one" needs to be defined.
Are we talking the best weapon or the most produced? Even if you...
Come on folks!
I can load a 7.62 NATO round so that it is significantly less powerful than a 7.62 X 39.
Just making a point!...
My texts say the T-34 had 47mm of frontal hull armor. Sloped at 60 degrees however, that is a ballistic protection value of 164 mm thick of armor...
