    anti-gun rights screechers are science deniers

    Those anti-gun rights screechers are science deniers.

    http://www.nydailynews.com/life-styl...icle-1.2135364

    The numbers should help "reassure the large majority of men that the size of their penis is in the normal range," said British researchers who had assembled data from studies where participants had their member measured by a professional.
    ....
    In reality, only 2.28% of the male population have an abnormally small penis, said the study — and the same percentage an unusually large one.
    According to science barely 2.28% of gun owners have anything to be compensating for.

    Wonder what other claims about gun owners they make are flat out wrong. (Don't answer that - it's rhetorical.)

    Just remember to get measured by a professional.

    stay safe.

    Not to sound snarkish but exactly what kind of professional are you referring to here?

    Don't need a professional. Got a ruler. Mine is only 2 1/4" long.

    Uh...the gun barrel, I mean. Yeah! The gun barrel; that's what I meant!! Its a snubbie! Shut up!! The gun is a snubbie. Nooo! Not that gun! The revolver! I'm talking about a revolver!
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    I grabbed a ruler, and boy was I disappointed. After YEARS of hearing "five inches long", I come to find out it is really only 3-3/4" long... my full-size 1911 barrel, I mean.

    I don't consider it snarkish at all. It would be awful to have your measurement questioned because some untrained interloper botched the job.

    One that has education and/or training in the subject as well as a level of experience above that of the average person. Most likely one that is paid to do so, as opposed to a volunteer.

    Personally I also hope they do not wear blue gloves. Or if they do that they did not bring the gloves from their other job.

    I suppose.

    I like how you sneaked in that term "full-size", you braggart. What are you trying to imply?

    Is there anything wrong with having...um, err, uhhh...a shrouded barrel?

    So... are you saying it isn't the size of your gun but the size of your compensator?

    next we will digress into how many bangs your barrel is good for before you have to reload.......and which is more effective a 5 shot or an 8 shot ( or gives more pleasure in the firing of....)

    Actually been following this since shortly after it was posted and mulling how I would respond. Gave it some room and you all have demonstrated your ability to color between the lines when you must. Antis do make the compensation comparison in less than generic terms - having refuted that, we will not dwell on real life specifics.

    So far no one has stepped on their equipment or pointed it an undesireable or unwanted direction.

    Recommend taking care of business as it comes up and not advertising any off target shots.

    Anticipating pictures or didn't happen - only provide them if you are willing to have yours on the post office wall.

    Bottom line - stay within the lines and score. Go out of bounds, get flagged and tagged. Have fun, but be careful - it could still be locked or deleted.

    So are you suggesting anti-gunners shoot blanks? Or their barrels have been fused?

    No serious lead or copper fouling issues, I trust...

    Nope, nothing wrong at all. As long as it works and as wrearick mentioned, that it is pleasurable to fire.

    Not so long as proper cleaning methods are employed. Any and all carriers should make cleanliness a habit. Regular use will also help to promptly identify any new issues that could lead to more painful and expensive problems later on.

    I waited to see where this discussion would go because I didn't want to be premature with my reply. And, judging from the postings so far, I predict this discussion will have a happy ending.
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    Begs the questions is it better to have deep penetration of a hard solid or the quick action and fast expansion of a modern JHP.

    I have found the bigger and heavier the target the deeper the penetration has to be compared to a smaller lighter constructed target.

    That's understandable. Trigger control is definitely important.
