Calling all gun nuts
« on: November 12, 2004, 04:40:06 AM »
A Walther P99 has a 12-round clip. Does that mean it will actually hold 13 rounds (12 in clip + 1 in chamber)? If not, does anyone know of a handgun that holds 13 rounds?

Yep it means it holds 13 with one in the pipe

I believe most of the generic 9 millimeters have a 12 round clip with one in the barrel, (berettas at least)

Only know this cuz of games though.  Am not a gun nut.

I dont own any guns and never fired anything but a

22 mag revolver  22 revolver .32   9 mm pistol (2 kinds)  9 mm colt sportster 45 SW, m-14, 12 Guage, 50 Cal and Mk-79 gernade launcher

Or somthing like that

A Glock 19 can hold 20 rounds...unless you buy it in the States, where you're limited to a ten round mag, unless ownership of the mag predates the law - it's illegal to buy and sell a higher capacity now.  Personally I prefer the slow push of a .45 to the snap of a 9mm, but the magazine volume is much lower cause the rounds are a fair bit bigger.

I wouldn't say I was a gun 'nut', but I used to be into handguns until the Dunblane massacre - used to go target shooting every week.  Whenever I'm in the States I call into a shooting range and blast a few targets, much to the surprise of the Americans - for some reason they think the British can't shoot, so they're even more surprised when a Limey can outshoot their local law enforcement on the ranges ;) :fugly:  Oh yes....

I dont know if it's too many years of playing Duck Hunt as a child, or perhaps my red rider BB Gun

I did not have a problem picking up a rifle and scoring as a marksman first time shooting.

(Though some people should not carry firearms...

During a 9MM qual when I was in the service.

The target is 3yards away supposed to shoot right handed, and left handed and switch mid volley and stuff,  the target moves out to about 7 yards I think 

Anyway, we are at the range, standing in our lanes (with the extension dividing us and everything... at 3 yards!!! Some fucker shot my target!!!!  It was during a reload and continue firing off handed, speed test, kinda thing.   But missing from 3 yards??? By 3 yards?  Is ridiculous

Only thing I can think of it that there was an extra round in the gun and as the let the slide back it fired... but I dont even know if theats possible.

It really pissed me off, that all you needed was some dope to sign a piece of paper to make you "qualified" to carry a weapon.

A friend of mine who used to live here, in Australia, and now lives in the UK had to pass a 'test' to get a gun licence (his parents have a farm, which is why he needed the licence). He said it was the biggest joke. The questions were easy but even so, some of the people had trouble, so the examiner basically told them the answers.

The police over here in the UK haven't got the first clue about guns, or the laws relating to them.  My car got stolen a few years ago and, in the front passenger footwell, there was two boxes full of 9mm empty shell casings, which I was keeping to reload.  Course, when the thing was finally recovered, they didn't give a shit about everything missing from the car, or the people who stole it - all they were interested in was the shell casings.  I let them sweat it for a week or two, thinking if they thought the thieves were armed they'd look for them harder - they didn't.  Instead they just gave me the third degree about leaving 'ammunition' within the reach of thieves, and saying they were going to prosecute me for it (after establishing it was mine because there were fingerprints all over them).  ::)

I called the desk sergeant a few names, filled him in on the law and told him he didn't know WTF he was talking about...and was lucky not to get locked up for verbal abuse.  They never did find the people who stole my car, the tossers.
