Vulnerable to propo
Low information voters


those voters?
Like I said, I am not going to go paste thousands of links just to show every bit of information there is on the subject, not for some argument on a gun rights chat board.

If you want you can call me guilty of believing the data being published and reported to us however you are not going to catch me in a lie because I don't really lie.

please show me where i said you are lying...
I think that I was having a hard time putting into works the example of this phenomenon I was seeing in the pandemic but I think maybe I have figured out a way to state it.

I have noticed that among those who are against the mandates they tend to repeat all arguments against masking, lockdowns, and the vaccine. By that I mean when if they are taking a negative stance against the government response (masks and vaccines) they seem to take all of the negative views about it. Masks aren't effective, vaccines are too new, ivermectin works, mandates are unconstitutional, vaccines aren't effective, etc etc. In moderates I see more varied positions but in the more conservative side I notice less variance. I never see anyone claim the vaccines are dangerous but also effective for example.

And this isn't a one sided thing either, I see the people who are strongly in favor of the vaccine adopt all of the positive views about the vaccine as well with less willingness to admit anything negative either.

The thing is that I don't think the actual science is all negative or all positive for the vaccine but when battle lines are drawn and people choose sides they seem to adopt all the arguments of the side they have joined. When is science or truth ever that clean where it only favors one side or the other? If humans were all rational thinking beings why would we #1 disagree about the data and #2 arrive at such clean different points of views? For ideological arguments of course differences are understandable but when it comes to data these differences are not understandable, unlike with opinions, these arguments are mostly matters of something that is a factual question. And political ideology seems to correlate with this.

I hope what I am trying to explain makes sense even if you disagree

but earlier you said "all available data"...

I'll take that as a compliment  :thumbsup:

You've never shown a single thing I have said to be a lie so theres that. I know you won't believe me but the data shows your friends and family will most likely be fine from the jab certainly more likely to be hurt from covid than from the vaccine if you look at it purely as a risk mitigation analysis. We will have to agree to disagree here and for everyone's sake lets both hope I am right.

would that be "all available data", or just your general feeling?

I think I've mostly been shooting aluminum .44 Mag.  I think I have some brass.

I'll have to check the box.  It's an older model, so maybe not current.  The closest on the Ruger website is this one

I love shooting that gun.  Too bad the ammo is so expensive.

if only you owned reloading components...

I keep a separate set of mags for HD.  Not sure how many rounds I did to test those mags.  If I had to guess, probably a few hundred FMJ and at least 50 HP, but that's usually say 20 or so here and there.  I recenlty switched from a couple of Glock 17s as "mains" to a couple of Glock 19s, so a bit more vetting with HP ammo is warranted. 

I typically rotate the HD mags and shoot them here and there.  It used to be at least every SSF, with some occasional mag here and there during classes or range days.  I rotate the pistol HD mags pretty regularly, but less so for rifle mags.  I have a comfort level with the mags that I buy.  While I do test, I am ok with loading up new or newer mags without that much worry.

Awesome info here.  The good ole days where GD was $35 for 50 rds.  1 could easily mag dump at the range to test.

Side not, my dad is a runner. And before 1 race, my mom thought he should eat a banana for extra energy. He doesn't do this.  So he listened and had to stop mid race to take a dump.  Since then he learned, never do anything new on race day.

Here's another important question, how many rounds does 1 need to fire to insure they function?  For me, I've mag dumped 1 box (50).  IDK if that's sufficient or not. Then followed by the annual rotation of ammo (shooting HP loaded mags).  But with COVID, I haven't rotated since Jan 2019.

do you have specific home defense mags?
did you test them before taking them out of range day rotation?

if i owned firearms and ammo, i would test fire the mags for several hundred rounds of fmj each before testing a hundred or so rounds of jhp before i would feel comfortable with that mag/jhp combo...
