    General Discussion
    This is my first time joining a shooting forum. I'm hoping to learn a lot more than I know now, which isn't a lot. I've had a couple of weapons for home defense for many years, fired them enough to be comfortable with them but that's about it. Recently, I bought my first semi-auto, a Ruger...

    After looking at some designs like P.A. Luty's submachine gun and the Orion's Hammer "AK pistol" I was wondering if it would be possible to make a straight blowback .410 shotgun. After all, the max. chamber pressure is only 13,500 psi as compared to 22lr, which is 24,000. One problem I could see...

    General Discussion
    A friend of mine went under water for half a block when the edge of a sand bar unexpectedly broke off under his weight. It threw him into current and he was lucky to touch bottom so he knew which way was up. He thought he was done for.
