dittybopper: tetsoushima: I just want to know, try not to be offended, do you have a below-average tallywhacker? Is that just a myth, or is there merit to it?

You tell me. You're the one that equates caliber with dick length.

Assuming you want a real answer as to why I went with the caliber I chose, here is why:

When you shoot a pure round ball, effectiveness is directly related to caliber. The bigger the ball, the more effective it is because it's heavier and larger. However, there is only so much velocity you can get from black powder, so a large round ball with a reasonable powder charge in a reasonable length gun is going to have a more arcing trajectory than a smaller ball, which can go faster initially, but which will lose energy much faster.

I sat down with a calculator, ballistics tables, and a couple of formulas to figure out which caliber I wanted. My idea was a deer rifle that I could use against bear, elk, or moose if I got the chance to do that. I settled on .54 caliber as a decently flat shooting caliber that would be effective enough with round ball against the larger cervids, and against black bear. A .45 or .50 caliber would have been fine for a pure deer rifle, or just a target gun, but I was looking for something I could use on something a bit larger if I decided to in the future. Given that the gun was built for me, to my measurements, you can see why I might want something that was more useful than a single-purpose gun.

The .62 caliber "gun that shall be mine" is a British Baker rifle. It's that size because that's the size they were back then, but ironically the gun is actually shorter than my long rifle (which is a 'transitional' one, shorter and of larger caliber than a "Golden Age" long rifle). The Baker is more akin to Germanic Jaeger rifle, very short barrelled and very large caliber.

Here are the two guns for comparison: Mine is the top one, the Baker is the bottom:

HeadLever: SupplySideJesus: They just know you're an armed and dangerous fark and I promise you they'll act accordingly.

Sometimes you don't even have to be dangerous for them to 'act accordingly'. Just ask Randy Weaver.

On the bright side, a whole pile of things changed after Ruby Ridge and Waco. The liklihood of these happening again are very much reduced. Expect to see more of a Freeman-type standoff now as opposed to these other two debacles.


The end result will always be the same my friend, regardless of the means. You'll either walk out, or you'll be carried out. But you will come out. This simple fact cannot be disputed (regardless of how much ammo you've stockpiled) and has always led me to wonder what the keyboard commandos are hoping to accomplish with their "from my cold dead hands" BS. Because ironically, that's exactly how it'd go down.

CSB: During my second deployment to Iraq my company found numerous weapons caches, with a great many AK-47s and ammo, as well as a variety of other weapons. One day when not much was going on my platoon leader decided that we would take some of the captured weapons and ammo and go out and shoot it, because A) shooting guns is fun and B) knowing how to use the enemy's weapons could come in handy, you'll never know. Just about everyone in the platoon fhad already fired off a few magazines when an urgent message came through on the radio telling us to immediately desist. Apparently before our unit got there the 101st had also found numerous weapons caches in the area, but instead of merely confiscating them they would occasionally replace the regular ammunition with ammo provided by the CIA, in which the gunpowder had been replaced by C4 so that it would explode when fired. They didn't really keep any detalied records of these caches, so it was entirely possible that some of the ammunition we had found was of the doctored variety.
