Thank you for showing the difference between "carrying" and "Brandishing", fractions of a second.

Why do I hear Chuck Schumer's voice saying, "they spray shoot from the hip"?

The Rendezvouers are going to try that on Sunday next week. I'll miss it because I'm heading home that day, but it looks like fun.

What they don't tell you is (I believe) you fire wax bullets using only the power of a large pistol primer - no lead bullet, no gunpowder.

And no recoil.

Still, it's an impressive feat.

I admit that's a pretty cool sport. Do they sometimes shoot themselves in the leg though. It looks like that might be a hazard.

mikeb,

A buddy of mine almost died after shooting himself in the thigh.

Of course, he had done some amateur gunsmithing on the trigger that 'helped' his accident along ....

Go watch Jerry Miculek video- He shoots real bullets and hits a scored target with 0 points down...

Yeah, because people all the time walk the streets open-carrying slip-hammer sixguns in speed rigs.

"Thank you for showing me the difference between a minivan and a Formula 1 car..."

Why don't you confine your commentary to topics about which you have a faint clue?
