Gun-haters who claim they are "liberal" will jump up and down in support of the Supreme Court's use of the Fourteenth Amendment to support a woman's reproductive rights (which I support as well, btw) even though there is no mention of anything whatsoever in the language of the amendment to support such a viewpoint.  These same people will sneer in dismissal that an Amendment that specifically cites a "right of the people" might be an actual right, simply because the Amendment mentions the importance of a "well regulated militia" to the protection of a "free state".

 

It is documented that the phrase "well regulated" was a commonly used term at the time of the ratification; NOT a term that describes governmental regulation, but one that outlines something that functions correctly.  The use of the term has been clearly documented.

 

"What is a militia? At the time of the American Revolutionary War, militias were groups of able-bodied men who protected their towns, colonies, and eventually states. "[When the Constitution was drafted], the militia was a state-based institution," says Jack Rakove; Pulitzer Prize-winning author and professor of political science and law at Stanford University. "States were responsible for organizing this."

 

What did it mean to be well regulated? "Well-regulated in the 18th century tended to be something like well-organized, well-armed, well-disciplined," says Rakove. "It didn't mean 'regulation' in the sense that we use it now, in that it's not about the regulatory state. There's been nuance there. It means the militia was in an effective shape to fight." In other words, it didn't mean the state was controlling the militia in a certain way, but rather that the militia was prepared to do its duty.

 

So, if you support women's reproductive rights based on the Constitution, but proclaim that a right specifically described as belonging to the people is not actually a right belonging to the people, then you aren't a liberal.  You're a hypocrite.

Sunday Gun-Day: RUGER 581 Series Mini-14 Ranch.

 

... my favorite Semi-Auto Carbine.

 

IMG-20210912-110729198-cropped-50.jpg

IMG-20210912-111030942-cropped-50.jpg

 

Modifications are limited to:

 

- Shortening/squaring the butt stock by an inch, and re-profiling the butt pad.

- Tech-Sights field adjustable rear aperture sight.

- 1-1/4" Q.D. sling swivels/USGI Cotton web sling.

- Choate Ventilated Handguard.

 

Use the 10-round RUGER OEM magazines generally, although have both 5-round mags for the field and 20 round mags for social work.

 

Ammunition is generally:

- MilSpec 5.56x45mm 55 gr. M193 Ball, either Wolf Gold (Taiwan Govt Arsenal), or Lake City (US Govt Arsenal).

- Barnes VOR-TX .223 55 gr. TSX solid copper hunting rounds.

 

Accuracy, from field positions, is generally < 2.5 MOA (Minute Of Angle, or 1"/100 yds)

 

This is a Carbine that goes into the field and camp quite a bit, usually as a companion to a .22 LR pistol or revolver.

 

It is also an excellent trunk gun.

 

At ~ 7.25 lbs. all up, it is an easy rifle to carry all day in the field.

 

... and both 55 gr. Ball and TSX copper are no joke when it comes to puttin' things down inside 200 yds.

 

 

 

I have created a new lounge and I'm using your thread to seed it. sorry for the inconvenience.. enjoy.

Ehhh... I'm tired of fire arms. I don't care for bullet hoses - so called assault style rifles. I don't care if anybody else wants one. I just don't have the need. They are fun to shoot and all, just not my thing.  And I'm sorry but if I remember right the original Garand - sucked. The damned thing was a bitch to load. Weird clip. I was told the later models fixed that problem. And the older one is more valuable!

I almost bought it anyways cause It's a Garand!

I have a broom handle. It's 100 years old this year. I haven't fired it 20. Aside from a few differences, like caliber and loading it really ain't that different than a Sig or a colt or a whatever. I dunno.... It's 2021. Isn't it time we moved on?

I would like to see more advancements in air powered arms. Wouldn't you love hunting geese with a rail gun with smart rounds?

WP_20180617_12_21_47_Pro.1-crop.jpg

 

Modifications are limited to:

 

- Holbrook Device. (Clip Retention and Manual Release - for field shooting and hunting)

- 1-1/4" USGI Cotton web sling.

 

Uses either the 8-round Enbloc Clips, USGI or Govt. Contract Commercial, or the 5/2 hunting clips.

 

Garand-Clips-Press%20Release.jpg

 

RVS-1586-zpst4r1a3n9.jpg

 

Ammunition is generally:

- MilSpec .30 M2 Ball 150 gr., either HXP (Greek) or PPU (Serbia)

- MilSpec .30 M2 AP 165 gr., AYR (Norway).

- Remington "Hog Hammer" .30-06 SPG 168 gr. TSX solid copper hunting rounds.

 

Accuracy, from field positions, is generally ~ 2.5-3.0 MOA (Minute Of Angle, or 1"/100 yds)

 

This is a Rifle that goes into the field for special hunts, usually as a companion to a .22 LR pistol or revolver.

 

It is also an excellent field marksmanship rifle.

 

At ~ 10.5 lbs. all up, it is a solid rifle to shoot, and a load to carry all day in the field.

(but then, G.I. Riflemen hauled this rifle all over Europe, the Pacific, and Korea...)

 

... and 165 gr. AP is no joke when it comes to puttin' holes in things out to 500 yds.

You don't remember right.  The M1 Garand was once called "the greatest battle implement ever devised".  It's easy to load (if you know what you're doing), and was head and shoulders better than the bolt-actions the rest of the world was using.

Think he's referrin' to the original "Gas Trap" Garands... and their "7th round stoppage" problem.

 

It was actually a machining problem having to do w/ the receiver boring for the Bbl., and the "trap," which stipulated no Bbl. port.

 

It was also kept "secret," so that it would be stolen by the Germans and Japanese... and then discarded as unworkable.

 

War Production M1 Rifles were a big surprise to the Fascists and Nazis, but, by then, it was too late for them to copy into production.

Stupid and Guns... go together about like Democrat National Socialist and Truth.

 

Not really worth discussing, as both are statistically insignificant.
