    These guys can run lever rifles, pump shotguns, and revolvers faster than most people could dream of with a semi-automatic. Hell, jerry miculek can wring a cyclic rate of 480 rounds a minute with a S&W revolver (6 shots in 1 second).

    Every shooter I listed is a real shooter. Each could be as deadly, or in all likelihood more so, with their "assault" pump, lever, and revolving guns than a vast majority of the public could be with a semi-auto.

    Miculek is slow with the double action revolver. A cowboy action shooter from Georgia broke his record of 2.99 seconds. Using two single action Rugers, he hit on target with 12 rounds in 2.75 seconds. Goes to show the single sction is faster than a double action.

    Hippie- Not quite, Jerry fired his rounds from one gun, vs the 2 guns the other guy used (reload time obviously takes longer than grabbing a new gun).

    Just learned Miculeks record is .57 seconds w/ a 5 shot revolver, or a cyclic rate of 526 rounds per minute. Guess its time to ban those "assault" snub nose .38 specials as well.

    Although that's not the record. Ed McGivern holds that at b/w .4 and .45 seconds for 5 shots from a revolver, set in 1932 (technology for the time was not accurate enough to give a definitive time, just that it was b/w the 2 numbers given). Cyclic rate of 666 rounds per minute at the slow end, 750 on the fast end.

    Miculek also fired 5 shots ea from 10 revolvers (50 shots total) in 17.12 seconds. Goes to show you one man armed with a backpack of 5-shot snubnose .38 revolvers could create more carnage than any mass shooter ever has to date.

    come on, man; other than the incredibly talented athletic freaks you mention, who spend most of their waking hours on a pistol range, how many run of the mill shooters, normal or crazy, who form the potential pool for murderous fools, could possibly come within a mile of this kind of performance? answer: none.

    this is the kind of argument that makes us look irrational and hysterical. chill out, and turn your attention to areas of relevance.

    No, it goes to prove the point that banning or restricting "assault weapons" doesn't make anyone a tiny bit safer. Massive amounts of carnage can be wraught with even the simplistic of firearms.

    A backpack full of revolvers (empty and toss) is just as lethal as someone with an ar-15 and a 30 round magazine. Someone with 3 10 rounds magazines or 6 5 round magazines is just as lethal as someone with one 30 round magazine.

    Hell, your over/under or side by side shotgun loaded with 2 rounds of 00 buck has the potential to kill dozens of people without even reloading.

    A backpack full of pipe bombs has the potential to kill hundreds, and would be much easier to construct than an illegal weapon would be to acquire.

    An anti-gunner proclaimed lever action and pump shotgun magazines to be "endless high capacity magazines" because they can be topped off at will.

    You can see where this is going if it gains traction.

    But, the fastest shotgun shooters do not even use the magazine.
