Rapid fire group on terrorist target

Even regular readers of The Shooter’s Log can’t read or respond to all of the comments, so we have started a new weekly feature that will recap a sampling of the most active, interesting, or on occasion, randomly selected comments from the previous weeks. Feel free to respond with your two cents at the bottom of this article or by clicking the story link and adding it directly to the discussion. Town Crier Cartoon

Reader Comments From Previous Weeks

150+ Shootings in 15 Days — Gun Control or Gun Offender Control? And there you have it folks – even the most liberal of thinkers eventually must accept that their entitlement mentality does more to fan the flames of violence and destruction than not. Eventually even they realize something…, anything must change for their own self-preservation.

Yet even once that lightbulb finally comes on in their heads, you still must allow them to continue thinking it was their own idea to have finally done something to change things. And don’t ever try to say, “I told ya so”, because the ensuing argument of how it was their idea will only delay the much needed relief.

It is just incredibly sad that so many preventable losses of life have to occur before a liberal will finally begin to grasp their plan was never going to work. And our pain, in the meantime, stems from the frustration that we must endure such ignorance and arrogance for their refusal to accept that our ideas do work.

You see, this is the cycle of life that unfortunately every generation must live through. And while the intensity makes each generation feel like it’s the end of the world, as they think they know it, eventually we always somehow pull through.

It’s a never ending cycle that will most assuredly repeat itself again and again, generation after generation.


Range Report: Century International Arms Zastava M88 9mm Surculus, There was a Norinco version that did put larger grips that wrapped around the rear grip strap I think it was the model 55 or something like that. Personally, I don’t see a real problem with the grip angle, but this may be a reason that I don’t especially like Glock’s angle. Realistically, I can shoot any of them pretty well. That’s what really matters anyway. “One mind, any weapon.” ~Sum Yun Guy

Range Report: Ruger SR1911 9mm I’m surprised at the number of stock 1911 triggers coming with pull weights of five to six pounds (or more). That’s basically the same weight as modern striker-fired pistols, and generally heavier than the SA pulls of DA/SA pistols like the SIG P22x series.

Given there’s a manual safety, I’m surprised triggers aren’t generally in the four-pound range.


SAF Slams Apple Execs for Changing Handgun Emoji You can’t fix Stupid , A squirt gun shows how desperate the So/Coms are. Hang strong on 2-A. We will win in the end. Tyranny withers away in time. Again I say read your History Books. Socialism and a Communism are like Noxious weeds that have to be mowed down periodically. What we are facing is The GOP offers Free Market Capitalism and freedom of thought and actions. Hillary’s plan for America is Full bore Socialism which is in reality Pure and simple,,A Police State. Would you like to live in Communist Cuba????? How about North Korea.??? Think deeply my Friends!!!!!!!!!! ~Richard Hennigh

150+ Shootings in 15 Days — Gun Control or Gun Offender Control? It really is fairly simple. Enforce existing laws and don’t give people who don’t deserve it any leniency. Be fair and just in all cases and then apply the law accordingly. Once people know that if they break the law there will be appropriate consequences the marginal criminals will start waking up. The hard nosed ones will be impacted by nothing.


150+ Shootings in 15 Days — Gun Control or Gun Offender Control? It’s usually Judges that don’t give anything but a slap on the wrist to many of these offenders. But now we have a president who wants to purge the jails of these violent offenders. Then he sicks the DOJ on these local police depts., undermining justice in the process. It makes you ask why bother? I can only imagine how much worse it will be if Hillary Clinton gets elected, it will be like the criminals will have free reign. Just another reason Donald Trump is looking like the better choice, and I know law enforcement in this country supports him hands down.

NRA: 5 Things Hillary Says She Will Do To Your Rights If She Wins The bottom line is this, In order to have total control over the people you must disarm them. That’s what Hitler did, and that’s what our socialist democrats want to do. Why else would the people we elect try, and try to attack the constitution? It’s greed and power. The 2nd Amendment was put in place specifically as a safeguard to allow U.S. citizens to stop a Tyrannical government, Take a look at our government. It’s about that time. If Hillary wins, I hate to say this, we need to take control back…the hard way. M. Hogue MI. USA ~Mike Hogue

AR–15 Barrel Twist Explained A 1:9 twist would be best for a 55, and in the 62-grain range, a 1:7/1:8 would be more suitable; never used a 60 grain, but in my opinion i’d have to say it should shoot pretty well out of a 1:9.
