Leashlaw: Jocundry: Rev. Skarekroe: Heroin User's Handbook?
That doesn't even BEGIN well.

I have a feeling that the book concerns harm reduction rather than glorification of drug use. I don't see the problem with someone learning how to inject a drug safely.

Agreed, IV drug use safety is usually taught by the same idiots you are using with, and is one of the few instances where the equipment is often more dangerous than the drug. I have seen places handing out little booklets on how to help someone who has OD'd. Helpful tips like, "don't toss them in the alley and run off".


If I bring an ODing biatch to your place, I'll give her the shot...

Wow..
I've been a member since 2002 and I think this might be the 1st bear killing thread I've seen. A Fark 1st for me, after all these years.

Scutter: That "least-convincing karate stance" is a 45-degree blade kick to the knee joint and is extremely effective.


Hey, lackwit, a blade kick is just as likely to tear all the tendons in the outside of your ankle as it is to immobilize someone if you actually had to do it hard enough to injure.

There's a damned good reason why every martial art in China, Japan and the Phillipines all strike with the heel for straight and sidekicks - they only teach those retarded versions of Karate in the US.

RadicalMiddle: My guess is, from Ant's wonderful recollections of his mom's ex-husband, alcohol may have been involved.


Oh yes, alcohol was always involved. On that trip I specifically remember having to drink warm beer, because we were in the middle of the farking Idaho desert, and nobody (my mom was not with us) had thought to bring something for the kid to drink.

Ant: Cracked is surprisingly funny. I remember when Cracked was just a crappy Mad Magazine ripoff.


And now Cracked is funny and Mad Magazine is just a crappy Mad Magazine ripoff.

Who knew?

Magorn:

Still I'm suprised for these "bear killers" that everyone complains about shooting, that no one has ever made grips out of shock-absorbing material for them. It would seem a simple fix.


The grips for those handguns are made out of a shock absorbing material. But that doesn't change the fact that when you fire a large bullet with a heavy charge out of a handgun, the result will not be comfortable. These are guns you'd fire only if a bear, or the guys from Deliverance, were coming for you.

They're not range guns unless you're a masochist.

Fish in a Barrel: chaoswolf: Fish in a Barrel: Yeah, it had a bit more kick than my 1911.

That's farkin funny.

Yeah, even at the time I had blood running down my head it was pretty funny. I am not a revolver shooter. I've shot plenty of semi-automatics, and despite all of the 9mm versus .45ACP debates I've never felt the difference in recoil was significant. That colored my expectations, and I felt I had a handle on what to expect. I was wrong. I was completely, totally, 100% unprepared for how much a real hand-cannon kicks. I might have been OK if it had been a normal Model 500, but I shot an uncompensated snubby.


Heh. I know what you mean - I mostly shoot semi-autos, but a few months ago I decided to try out a .44 Mag at the range as a change of pace. Definitely a different experience. The damn thing left a hell of a blister on my hand.

A lot of the stuff in AC is wrong. At least Ragnar gets his explosives right.

Station:
What moron sticks a Glock, cocked, into hit sweatpants?

The Glock pistols are striker-fired and thus are never
really "cocked" until the trigger is pulled and that can't
happen unless the safety lever in the face of the trigger
is fully depressed.

Glocks are not much more dangerous to carry then revolvers,
which also do not have manual safeties.

As far as the S&W "anti-bear" revolver, the reason it has
a short barrel is that odds are you'll never have to shoot
a bear with it and if you do need to, you won't notice the
recoil as you'll be scared shiatless at that moment.

The revolver will spend all it's time riding in a holster,
where light weight is more important then accuracy or
recoil.

zabbers: Magorn, there's only so much shock a grip can absorb for you. The .500 is a monster and that energy has to go directly to your hand.

With a proper, firm grip on the weapon, your whole body can absorb the impact and your hands won't get battered. oh, they'll still feel it, trust me, but it won't feel like you whacked your hand with a hammer or anything.

Firing a .500 into a milk jug full of liquid will completely blast the jug to bits and shoot liquid everywhere, it's very fun!

i know a guy who shot the .500 with one hand, we were amazed. he's a big dude and future Navy Seal, so he's got that going for him.


A friend of mine bought an S&W .500 for reasons none o us could quite understand. But I didn't think it kicked all that much more than my Redhawk .44, though I suspect the ten inch or whatever it was barrel on the .500 helped, versus the 5.5" on my Ruger. And, on a dare, I did fire a single shot from the .500 one handed. Wouldn't want to do it all day, but I once shot a snub-nosed .44 "trail gun" that was super light and that one almost made me part of the Split Forehead Society.

Another friend is a cop and his carry sidearm is a Glock .40. He also owns a 9mm Glock. Both are fine weapons, but there is something about them I find uncomfortable to shoot. My .44 and Kimber .45 recoil more, but there's something about those Glocks I don't like. To each their own, I suppose.

Station: Magorn: iollow: I think the gun holster isn't too bad to be honest.

Plaxico Burress would be in a lot less trouble right now if he'd owned a pair...

What moron sticks a Glock, cocked, into hit sweatpants? The Glock, while a fantastic weapon, has no external safety. You can always pull the trigger. I feel that it is more of a soldier's weapon, since its always ready to fire, versus a cop's (or thug's, I guess) weapon.


Glock actually had to made a model with a thumb safety to be included in the Joint Combat Pistol tests for the US military. Same with the Springfield XD and S&W M&P. Our military wants manual safeties and external hammers/cocking indicators on its pistols. Most cops in the US use Glocks or some sort of DAO pistol with a long and heavy trigger pull to make up for the lack of a manual safety.

Fish in a Barrel: RadicalMiddle: I would tend to think that the .500 is very impractical, It wouldn't fit in your compression underpants. Wouldn't emptying a clip from a 1911, or even a 9MM at least slow a bear down? You don't even have to pull a big yellow box from your backpack.

I think it would also be better to be able to get off more than one shot. How many think that they could fire more than one round of a pug-nosed .500 in a couple of seconds with any accuracy?

Unless you're very lucky, a .45 or 9mm isn't going to do more than upset the bear. Even a full magazine worth (isn't not a clip dammit!) won't do enough damage to significantly impede the bear.

According to the best available research, the best defense against bears is bear spray, with a large caliber hand-gun as a backup.


Bearspray? Large caliber hand-gun as back up? Meh. I personally reckon a good flamethrower would be the ultimate in bear defence

Statistically, about 13% of Heroin users become addicts, I guess that the guide covers the subject of how to stay in the 87% that don't.
