But is it powerful enough to shoot through schools?
 
2013-12-22 06:27:22 AM  
And by "wall" do we mean flimsy plasterboard?

He considers the guy a "responsible gun owner." Did the bullet also graze his brain?

Dude looks like he needed shot anyway.

This is why you load hollow points for carry use...

"The owner of the gun has been showing it to someone in a near by locker room when he  accidentally negligently fired it."

There, fixed that for the dumb reporter

But what if the bad guys are wearing kevlar? I think you should always have armor-piercing rounds loaded. You know, just in case.

Great flick, but could you imagine putting that gag in a movie today?  It probably wouldn't go over too well.

Heat-seeking exploding poison rounds. Go big or go home.

This isn't Show and Tell, leave the pistol in the holster unless you actually need to use it.  Any time you handle a loaded weapon there's a chance, however small, of a negligent discharge.

Even with a .40 short and weak, I wonder what would have happened had it been a model 20 or 29 (10mm instead of the shortened version)
 
2013-12-22 11:00:45 AM  
it's FL so i guess criminal charges are dependent of the guy who got shot being mad or not.
 
2013-12-22 11:01:14 AM  
I look forward to another thread where brilliant gun owners point out that the shooter didn't handle his weapon in a safe manner.

Yeah no kidding, what was the wall made of? And does anyone know the standard grain of the rounds?

He was just clearing it before showing it to his buddy. Drop the mag, pull the trigger...boom...it's clear.
 
2013-12-22 11:02:47 AM  
Which is why many people carry hollow-point ammunition. But of course ignorant gun-haters have been working hard to make "hollow-point" a Super Scary Gun Word. ARE YOU HAPPY LIBS? YOU MAY AS WELL HAVE SHOT THAT MAN YOURSELF.

Wait...are you saying he did? Your comment is thick with sarcasm...and yet the content is exactly right. Any responsible gun owner can clearly see that this guy wasn't handling his firearm safely, and in the process endangered himself and those around him.

So what exactly is your point?

At least "he accidentally fired it" is better than "it somehow discharged". Most of us here know, I think, that weapons rarely if ever just fire themselves.

Concrete block walls with webbing ? That wouldn't suprise me at all . Three solid concrete block walls on the other hand I would not believe it . I doubt it would go through the first one .
 
2013-12-22 11:09:01 AM  
.40 is a great little caliber. Don't know why people buy glocks though.
 
2013-12-22 11:09:09 AM  
Pfiester, who did not press charges, was quoted in a press report saying he considered the man who accidentally shot him to be a friend and an otherwise responsible gun owner.

Otherwise?  What test of gun responsibility is there beyond 'don't accidentally shoot someone'.

Normally about 155, 160 or 180 grain, but there are some as low as 135 (there may be some lower sintered rounds) and I think there are some as heavy as 200.

2013-12-22 11:13:06 AM  
Once a neighbor next door in an apartment said he has a semi-auto AK-47 for defense.  Assuming it was the 7.62 x 39, I thought "oh shiat, better learn to hit the floor."  Granted just about anything will go through a cheap wall.

What is interesting is some people in previous discussions some dismissed the use of blue-tip glaser safety rounds as they are ineffective for body armor in this scenario.  Gotta protect yourself first I suppose.

Wrong.

Accidentally works just as well with the information we have.  Maybe he had a muscle spasm, or dropped it, or someone bumped him, or he slipped.

Take all the precautions you want, accidents still happen. It's called being human.

But no,  you're right, there is no such thing as "accident"  Smart and respectable people never err.  This guy should be euthanized for the good of mankind.

That everyday americans are too stupid and irresponsible to be allowed to carry loaded guns.

They shouldn't even be allowed to drive cars for the most part.

If your weapon "accidentally" discharges in public you should lose your right to own a weapon for 5 years, and then they should only be able to carry guns that are coloured bright orange so everybody knows what a dumbass they are and to be cautious around them and their gun.

What's funny is that once upon a time there was a big controversy about hollow-point bullets being "armor-piercing"...

upload.wikimedia.org

Winchester learned a very valuable lesson, and that is that if the bullets are colored black someone will be outraged over it and try to have them banned. Keep them brass-colored and you can sell as many of them as you can make with no objection. When it comes to guns, black=evil.

Strictly speaking a 5.56 is a 22 round.

I've got an Astra without a safety. Part of me knows it has an integral safety with an interlock around the trigger, but I still worry that it's really just a straight shot from the hammer to the pin. Thus I never leave it with a round in chamber because I sorta believe it could fire itself.

And three interior walls? That's six layers of drywall.

I did this with my shoulder while making my bed. I was tugging at a sheet caught on one corner, pressed my shoulder to the wall, then crunch and I'm not getting my deposit back.

I built a great sculpture for all to see, but do they call me Petty the sculptor?  No.
I saved 100 kids from a burning school bus, but do they call me the Petty the rescuer?  No.
I negotiated peace between bitter enemies, but do they call me Petty the peacemaker?  No.

Fark one goat....


Yeah, he's not a responsible gun owner if his gun discharged in a farking gym while he was showing it off.
