    ...is being breathlessly reported by Time Magazine as one of the Batman weapons (see link...if they haven't changed it by now).



    But then again, I bet the idiot reporter's web server blocks gun-related sites, precluding any possibility of, say, researching the Remington Arms website?

    LIT---I like your take on that. GRIN--Ross

    PS. Does anyone know where one of those 8ga--bolt action-double barrel-pumps can be found that sounds like just what I need, especially if they are available with a 25 or 50 round magazine.

    So many lies in the article. As someone said, he should have done some research but then He was just trying to stir the pot. Jackie B.

    I shudder to think what one of these shotguns, combined with a high-velocity clip of hollow-point "dum-dum" bullets, could do to a group of kids who accidentally found one.

    Most of the hollow, pointless, dum-dums work for the media.

    No later than tomorrow the dum dums will launch a completely predictable barrage of high velocity rapid fire drivel. Watch for the high capacity 'clips' featuring members of the hollow and pointless political class with a "D" behind their names.

    Anyone that gives a sh!t will be able to follow the tracers directly back to a 'small caliber' group including Lautenberg, Durbin, Schumar, and the California raisins: Boxer and "Einstein".

    Whether or not he's featured publically in the gun grab, the socialist in the White House is and will remain eyeball deep in the process.

    Saw on channel CW33 (Dallas station) Friday night that the AR15 was a machine gun. The reporter even repeated and I quote "this is a machine gun". end of quote. Had pictures of what the AR the 870 and the glock looked like. Also said the 870 shotgun and the glock pistols are frequently used by law enforcement. His tone was obviouly trying to demonize the latter 2 as something that only Law Enforcement should be in possession of. And these people are very aware that they are "informing" persons that dont have a clue as to the contrary. Most on here do I am sure...although after lurking for the last couple of years probably not all.

    There are indeed revolvers made with active safeties.

    I don't recall which article I read but it stated the AR 15 was chambered in .227 caliber.

    Is that like the old Michael Keeton "Mr. Mom" movie quote:

    "...220, 221 Whatever it takes."

    I thought I was a certified gun nut...but I have never seen nor heard of a revolver with a safety. At least not in the classical crossbar, toggle lever, push button sense. There is always the first. Will be interesting to see an example.

    The current S&W revolvers have a tool operated manual safety, similar in concept to the J-key tool for Remington shotguns.

    Safety conversions have been made for S&W revolvers.

    The Magna Trigger is one example, though it operates via a magnet and a special ring the user wears.

    Another is the Murabito conversion that turns the cylinder thumb latch into a toggle safety.

    There have been antique revolvers made with manual safeties, though they are uncommon. The only two that come readily to mind are the Webley-Fosbery Automatic-Revolver and the Spencer Safety Hammerless.

    Just heard a news report that the Glock had a 40 round mag. I know they had 33 round mags but never heard of a 40.

    Sheesh. It was a Glock in .40 S&W. Two, actually, though some news reports claim he had both pistols on him, and others claim one of the Glocks was left behind in his car.
