was declared to be a high capacity fully semi-auto assault/ranch style rifleweapon of murdering murder 2 years ago and I'm not allowed to use it.  The gophers have been breathing a little easier since the ban.

You have quite the way with words  :2funny:  As a Californian I feel your pain.  The way our lawmakers operate is to try and make it as annoying and difficult as possible to buy a gun, rather than making things safer for anyone.

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

Well I took this puppy to the range a few weekends ago with my dad.  Shot beautifully up until the firing pin broke, rendering the cylinder unable to open.   :buck2:  I learned an important lesson about why people generally don't take 80-year-old guns out to the range!

With enough luck my dad and I (ok, mostly my dad) will be able to fix it without taking it to a gunsmith, but we'll see.

It was either Federal copper-plated hollow point or PMC Zapper.  Possibly a mix of both.  My dad suspects that the pin was faulty to begin with when it got into my hands.
