Reloading / Re: Squib!
« on: April 12, 2021, 05:38:48 PM »
No powder.  As I mentioned, the bullet probably got stuck in the forcing cone and I had to drive it back into the case with the range rod.  The really dangerous part is that if a shooter doesn't recognize the squib, a following shot could burst the gun and shrapnel could fly anywhere/everywhere.

About 2 years ago a guy had a S&W 500 about 8 stations down from me.  His gun was shaving jacket metal and I got hit in the leg by a piece--it drew blood but it was quickly staunched.  I found out later that he had to send the gun back to S&W for a new barrel.  I'm just glad that no one was blinded--not hard to imagine with a gun that spits.

 I would guess that most new shooters don't know about squibs or revolvers that spit. so I'm usually very cautious around them.
When I started reading the part about the S&W 500 my first thought was that you were going to say it blew up! 😂 I have a S&W 627 and the first lead boolits I loaded for it I didn’t know what I was doing and it spit lead pretty bad. It was purely my fault. Most of my reloading life I have almost always had access to cheap FMJ and JHP bullets as I lived 20-25 minutes from the Sierra factory in Santa Fe Springs, CA. Once a week they opened up their store and sold blems and seconds by the pound. The factory is no longer there but I lived off my stash of bullets for many many years. After I moved to Hawaii I tried loading lead in my 357 and the boolits I bought were too soft and I drove them too hard. The spitting was pretty bad. And accuracy was terrible. I went back to jacketed from Montana Gold Bullets for a while until I figured out what I was doing wrong. Eventually I figured it out and like Stang I load a lot of lead. And one of my fav loads in 357 are hard cast SWC or RNFP that are powder coated. Now I load for almost all my pistols except hot magnum loads. I even load lead for most of my military rifles. I just don’t push them hard. Now I cast my own.

I have been hit by shrapnel from revolvers before. Never hurt other than being small cuts. Lucky I guess. Though I was almost hit by a piece of a friend’s revolver when he blew it up. I saw it go right past within a few inches of my face.

I mean if you elaborated I would understand, wasn't aware you saw the original post.  Also that's exactly why I edited it. Its not directly insulting so it probably wouldn't break forum rules, but I would rather not needlessly enrage people on this thread.  We almost had a decent conversation recently.
I elaborated enough that you understand EXACTLY what I am saying, Quit trying to play innocent. AGAIN. I think it is insulting and I think it does break forum rules. Why don’t you post it back up and let everyone here decide how they feel about it? Maybe the moderators will let you keep it up. That is why you put it up, right? To insult everyone here?

Yes we did almost have a decent conversation. I just wish you knew what you were saying. I can’t have a conversation with someone who doesn’t understand (or doesn’t care) about the unintended consequences of what they are saying and then tries to argue with me about it. And when I told you I didn’t appreciate your arguing with me you came back and argued about not arguing with me. 🤦‍♂️

What? Posted a meme, might of been too triggering so I edited and found a better one to post later...
Calling people who don’t believe in mask wearing a bunch of clowns is what I call insulting. Don’t play innocent with your “What?” Question.

Ridiculous.

Or maybe this is the way a communist thinks and cannot comprehend what freedom is?  I remember being asked early in the thread "how am I a communist". Many examples were given.
When one doesn’t have an understanding of how the constitution works and how your rights work and when you are willing to ignore some rights and are willing to give them up for an agenda or an ideal you give up your freedom and liberty. I can understand why one might confuse them with a communist or socialist. Because that is literally what the Democrats want their followers to think and feel since they are pushing towards socialism. When one gives up their rights they give up their freedom and liberty. If you do it willingly then you are a socialist or communist. It’s too bad that that question that was asked to you is telling of someone who has drunk the kool-aid.

I recall a comment in this thread I believe that involved the insinuation that China would never purposely infect their people. Let’s face it, last report I remember was a million died in China from the virus. But the ignorance about the communist party is that they don’t care about a million people or even 2 million or more. They would purposely infect their people and while I don’t have evidence to support that, I believe they probably did. I have lived through communism, socialism and Marxism and I am a student of WWI and WWII and I know what communists and nazies do and did to their people. Every person is expendable for any reason any time. Communists don’t care. The CCP kills millions every year. Verified. So why is it a far reach to think they wouldn’t infect their own people? After seeing for myself what communism truly is, it is not a reach or a conspiracy to even think it would happen. I am sure it already has.

Regardless of the 14th amendment and other arguments against pandemic rules, the supreme court (which decides what laws truly are) has decided that its allowable.  This supersedes any other arguments against pandemic rules.  If one wants to override this they must go to the supreme court and overrule the past ruling.

"the power to take quarantine measures is reserved to the states under the 10th Amendment"
You obviously do not understand how the constitution works and protects our right regardless of any court decisions. You can’t have liberty without due process. What you are claiming is that it is okay to ignore the constitution and take away liberty from people by tyrannical government employees by ignoring due process. I consider your suggestion of ignoring due process completely un-American or just a plain lack of knowledge on your part.

Since you obviously don’t understand or are willing to ignore this, I am done trying to have a conversation with you since you obviously don’t care about how the constitution works and you don’t care about having your rights protected regardless of court decisions. Unconstitutional mandates are what I have been talking about from the beginning. Your lack of being open to the reality of this has shows me you are just trying to argue and troll. You started this argument and due to the request of the moderators to cease and desist this type of argument I will stop it right here. Sometimes you have to overcome your desire to argue with people in order to follow the rules. I suggest in the future you do just that.

Correct, make someone stay at home for 10 days (was 14 days) without proving that they are infected.  Sounds like liberty denial  to me.

Force businesses to close and then operate at less than their potential.  Sounds like liberty denial to me.

Make people wait 3-12 months for an appointment to purchase a firearm.  Sounds like liberty denial to me.

"How am I a communist?" *quote
You are absolutely right. Rulings without following the due process clauses are ignoring the constitution.

This was tested before in 1918 flu.  Mask mandates are legal.  So are many other pandemic measures.

I am not sure how the article you posted applies to unconstitutional mandates as I stated in my original posting. Maybe you can elaborate how your article directly applies to these unconstitutional mandates?

I guess you didn’t read the article that I posted or possibly you didn’t understand it? It blows away the validity of all the rulings on unconstitutional mandates. Still, they are unconstitutional no matter how you look at it. You can’t take away someones liberty without due process. And no ruling ever has addressed the due process clauses in the constitution. So no argument about the validity of those rulings.

I don't think so--I heard the pop from the primer and there was a bit of smoke that came out but the bullet only made it into the forcing cone.  I had to pound it back into the case to be able to free up the cylinder and remove the cartridge.  I don't know why but I gave it to the RO.  At the time I wasn't thinking about posting it on 2a so no pic.
I would have to think then that there was little to no powder (most likely) or contaminated powder. If there was normal amount of powder in the case that didn’t ignite you would have seen it all over inside the chamber and barrel and probably all around the forcing cone, and every where else. And Trail Boss has a very unique look to it. It looks like little doughnuts. So unless you noticed unburned powder every where I would think it contained little to no powder at all. Thanks!

TINHORN FLATS – The Symbol of Modern Day America Against Tyranny

This is the symbol of modern-day Americans against tyranny.  America is standing up against this communist onslaught.

One American is standing up against tyranny.  He’s becoming the symbol of America.

The Conservative Treehouse brought this to our attention.  Here is what they shared:

Tinhorn Flats is the oldest bar in Burbank.  In March of 2020 they shut down in compliance with state guidelines.   They reopened in November 2020, and when the second lockdown was announced their defiance began.

Burbank authorities first cited and fined Tinhorn Flats.  Lucas refused to pay and stayed open.  Burbank authorities cut their utilities.  Lucas brought in generators and stayed open.   Burbank authorities red tagged his restaurant and locked the doors.  Lucas cut the locks and reopened.  Burbank authorities boarded up the doors and ‘red tagged’ again as unsafe.  Lucas sawed off the boards and reopened his business.  Burbank police then arrested Lucas.  Lucas made bail and was released.

Regular protests then began to support Lucas.  Burbank authorities came back and replaced the boards (thicker w/ security nails).  Lucas sawed off those boards and reopened business.  Burbank police then arrested Lucas the second time.  Lucas made bail and was released.  Burbank authorities again replaced the boards on the doors and added sand bags; (police later announced that anyone moving a sandbag would be arrested).  Lucas removed the sandbags.  Lucas was arrested, made bail and was released.

Today the city of Burbank installed fences around the property…. the battle continues.

This is the state of America.
The issue here is that the mandate that brought forth the enforcement of the laws in the first place is unconstitutional. Especially without due process. Therefore the enforcement of those laws based on an unconstitutional mandate especially without due process is also illegal. Enforcement of laws based on an unconstitutional mandate with or without due process equals tyrannical out of control government.

Here is a piece that I believe will explain it very clearly:

As a general rule I don't shoot other people's reloads.  Today I was testing a new SAA-type revolver at Koko Head.  My 19 year old .45 Colt loads shot OK (255 gr swc over 8.1 grains Unique).  I brought along some reloads a friend gave me when he moved to the mainland--250 gr. swc over 6 grains of Trailboss and sure enough the 12th round (more or less) was a squib.

The primer blew the bullet into the forcing cone and tied up the gun.  A few whacks with the RO's range rod and hammer jammed the bullet back into the case and I was able to clear the gun then put it away.  Guy then showed me a pic of a S&W 1917 that blew up this past Thursday.  A bullet stuck in the barrel and the next round split open the barrel about 2" from the muzzle.  Unfortunately a shooter next to the 1917 caught a bit of shrapnel in his upper left arm and lost a little blood.

I hope that the firearms "trainers" who use KHSC brief their students about the possibility of squib rounds and the danger they present--it's bad enough to have to put up with newbie gun handling.

If I see Guy again next week I'll try to remember to get a copy of that picture to post here.
Just out of curiosity was there powder in the squib cartridge? Trail Boss is known as one of the easier powders to ignite.

Make sure the mags are > 10rd capacity, too!   :geekdanc: :thumbsup:

Order up some 80% lowers & pistol frames while you're at it!   :rofl:
Already have the 33 round mags for it. And I have all the 80% frames that I want.

Maybe I should by some extras so I can sell them later.

I decided on Friday since Biden is going to sign EO’s to ban certain items, it is my duty as an American to buy those things he intends to ban. So I had to buy a short barreled AR 9mm pistol with brace that takes Glock magazines.

As often and as much as the government has fleeced me my whole life, I almost feel like a little "reparation" is in order.  They took dollars that were worth much more back then than they are worth today, too.
I certainly don’t believe in UBI. Every city/county that has tried it has failed. It is a losing proposition IMHO. But if the government decides they are going to do it against my wishes, I will accept it if given to me. Much like the stimulus checks. My nephew told me that the government has devalued the dollar so much in my lifetime that taking UBI makes up for their ripping us off by the devaluation and wasting our tax dollars on BS stuff. I agree. But like the stimulus I won’t push for it, and I will write my Congress critters telling them not to do it, but I will take it if the Democrats manage to push it through.
