and?
 
2005-05-22 10:21:21 AM  
That actually isn't my favorite handgun.
 
2005-05-22 10:40:49 AM  
My cousin gets one by bow and one by pistol almost every year. Big deal.
 
2005-05-22 10:41:18 AM  
come on, there are plenty of other reasons to come to Delaware...

If you're built like Rambo can you use a machine gun one-handed?

A mortar is a handgun, right?

Probably need a two-man team for that... ah, but what the hell... I'll give you a hand with it, Monkey-Man.

Awesome, I picked up some "vintage" WWI mustard gas shells. We'll reach our limit in no time as long as our limit is in the lower hundreds and it doesn't matter what we kill.

Weaps That actually isn't my favorite handgun.

Yeah, but they've already been hunting deer with those for ages.

Looks like I won't be using my 4" 500 S&W Magnum, then. Barrel's too short, LOL! Only 2600 ft/lbs of muzzle energy. Delaware dummies. Oh well, it's much better suited for dangerous game, like we have here in Alaska. :)
 
2005-05-22 04:18:24 PM  
Cool!

At least it's closer to real hunting than sitting in a stand, getting drunk, and waiting for Bambi's mom to get her daily meal of corn so conveniently doled out by a deer feeder.

It also provides a means for bringing the sport to a more culturally diverse audience:
"Yo Darnell, there's that mo'f*ckin deer that was muggin' you earlier. Let's get that mothaf*cka!"
*pop* *pop*
(and then they miss and hit a family of wayward rabbits because you just can't hit stuff by holding yo gat sideways)
 
2005-05-22 05:28:20 PM  
making Delaware the 48th state to legalize hunting with large-caliber handguns.

Bout' time thay got with the rest of us.
I think I'll take my .45 and go round us up dome dinner!
 
2005-05-22 05:29:52 PM  
a show of hands of anyone who is surprised by this...... anyone? anyone? nooooooooo
 
2005-05-22 05:33:22 PM  
But don't miss, or you're likely to hit Maryland.
 
2005-05-22 05:33:54 PM  
I'm not one of these animal rights type people but that actually sounds borderline cruilty. Besides real men hunt with bow's and sing Wang dang sweet poontang.

You can also tour our world famous screen door factories.

Oh come on Minner! We want to hunt deer with the Punkin Chunkin air cannons.
 
2005-05-22 05:34:44 PM  
I'll add another big-fat-so-what?
 
2005-05-22 05:34:50 PM  
8 inch Colt Trooper III .357MAG. It'll do.

/especially with some nice high pressure loads

High five to PigCharmer.

Wow, the effective range of a handgun in the hands of a drunken average red-neck hunter is about 10 meters. So, either they're running real fast after the damn things, or they'll be using the "close-one-eye, squint the other real close" method of sighting in on the deer. Damn, I'm hoping for a few Darwin awards out of this one!

Guns don't kill people, rednecks do.
 
2005-05-22 05:40:12 PM  
go to a supermarket you goddamn ignorant hill people. Isn't enjoying killing animals one sign of a sociopath?

You forgot to mention the chicken farms. No trip through slower Delaware is complete without the aroma of chicken farm.
 
2005-05-22 05:41:22 PM  
I have several guns. Guns are for killing people not animals.

Funny, I have a Browning light 12 auto that was specifically engineered for blowing the heads off of pheasants.

But Hank Sundermeyer of Newark thinks Minner should take a second look at the issue. At a time when gun violence is on the rise and the nation is in the midst of a war on terrorism, Sundermeyer said he thinks handgun hunting sends the wrong message.

In other news, Hank Sundermeyer sounds like an asshat for not being able to distinguish between terrorism and hunting.
 
2005-05-22 05:47:43 PM  
Great, my 30-6 Remmington 700 was made for deer hunting, but its seems to work just nicley for SWAT and the military. Try killing people with yours, I bet it will still work.
 
2005-05-22 05:48:12 PM  
uh, is gun violence really on the rise?

/NYC resident who thinks not, actually.
 
2005-05-22 05:48:46 PM  
I'd better work on my stealth skills. Sneaking up on a deer with a spurless Ruger SP101 will take some doing.

/Gotta get close with those short barrels

How a deer got my handgun, I'll never know.

-What wrong message? I take it he thinks that only the government should have the ability to protect the country, and that normal citizens should have to cower in fear and hope some policeman will protect them? If he actually wanted to address gun violence, he'd look into the main reasons it exists, not making public some specious belief that handgun hunting will somehow affect the War on Terror.

"To say that 47 other states allow this isn't much of an excuse," said Sundermeyer, a retired DuPont Co. engineer. "At a time when more handguns are being used in crimes, we shouldn't be doing things that encourage the proliferation of handguns."

-Let me be the first to say that Hank Sundermeyer retired from his job and became a full-time douchebag. Handgun hunting has nothing to do with handgun crime, since nobody is allowed to hunt with the types of guns normally used in crimes.

Here's an idea, show up for hangun hunting season and wear a BIG sign with your above words on it. Betcha that'll help.

Hey, if we disarm the entire country I'm sure the war on terrorism will end really quickly.

I bet it will ass-clown I've been shooting since I was 6, bring it faggot I live in San Diego California. Come to my house and I'll out shoot you any day you drunk ignorant douche bag.

How the fark would a moran like you who cannot even SPELL Remington be allowed to own one?
 
2005-05-22 05:56:49 PM  
There realistically isn't a whole lot of difference between deer hunting with a 16" barrel 44 magnum rifle and a 12.5" barrel 44 magnum handgun, especially when you add a scope. I'm sure they just passed the law to piss off the farktarded liberals. Which is good by itself. Suck on it liberals, suck it long, suck it hard. The one they quoted in the article sure had his panties in a knot. He was retired from Du Pont too. Maybe he was hoping for a napalm season.

VideoVader: How a deer got my handgun, I'll never know

It's mighty sporting of the Delaware folks to not only arm the deer, but to actually require you to donate your favorite weapon.

I live on the cross streets of Mary Lane, and Bear Valley parkway in Escondido, Ca, in no. San Diego county, I drive a silver 98' ES300 and I have a 30-6, with a 4*30 bushnell scope and 50 rounds in my trunk at all times. Come over faggot, its not my fault you can't get laid without paying for it.

Hey, you sound like one of those kids in high school who brag about how they've got awesome ninja skills, and show off the throwing stars they made in shop class.

If you've really been shooting since you were six, you must know something about firearms. Let's see what you know:

Can a .38 round be safely used interchangeably in a gun chambered for .357 mag?
 
2005-05-22 05:58:35 PM  
I'm allowed to own a gun because this is America biatch. And I do.

Guns don't kill people, rednecks do.


Incorrect. It's "Guns don't kill people, blacks do."
 
2005-05-22 05:59:52 PM  
no it can't, you cant interchange rounds. Unless its an older european large cal military rifle and the cal are very close.
 
2005-05-22 06:00:20 PM  
How in the world does the subject of criminals using pistols come up in this question/debate/argument?

I'm damned tired of people invoking 9/11, etc. to score a point for their side. Especially when the conversation doesn't have a thing to do with terrorism.
