Winning draw for this shooter

"Superman might have trouble keeping up with Jerry Miculek."

"The comic book hero may be faster than a speeding bullet, but could he match the speed of all six of Miculek's shots? Or how about all 12?"

"The action sports shooter has successfully fired six revolver shots into a target in three-fourths of a second. Six years ago, he emptied six shots into a target, reloaded and emptied six more bullets into a target in 2.99 seconds. On that same day, he put six bullets into a target in less than 1 second and two shots each on four targets in 1.06 seconds."

"People do not call him the fastest shooter in the world for nothing."

"'It's just for fun,' the 50-year-old Smith & Wesson pro says. 'We're just doing fun stuff.'" ...

"You see it every fall, at public and private shooting ranges across the country. Guys staple a target or two to a 100-yard backer, plop down at the bench and fire a couple shots. Then they squint through their scopes, retrieve their targets, pack up their guns and head home. 'Yep, a couple inches high at 100--right where it was last year,' they say. 'I'm good out to 300 with this baby.'"

"Properly zeroing a rifle for hunting is much, much more than that. And hunters who don't understand the principles and methods necessary to achieve a good zero are only cheating themselves." ...

"One objection to the idea that reducing firearm deaths would increase life expectancy and reduce insurance costs is the argument that guns are simply a means to an end -- and that people who are intent on violence, either toward themselves or others, will find a way to achieve that objective with whatever tools are available. ..." ...

"Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy posed with a .50 Caliber Sniper Rifle at a recent press conference in Garden City. She joined with State Assemblywoman Patricia Eddington and members of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence to call for the passage of state and federal legislation to ban the weapon. The .50 Caliber Sniper Rifle has the ability to shoot down aircraft during take-off or landing."

"'We must change our pre-9/11 gun laws to stop terrorists from legally obtaining weapons of mass destruction like the .50 Caliber Sniper Rifle,' McCarthy said. 'We saw the devastation terrorists can create armed with only boarding passes and box cutters and yet we have done nothing to prevent anyone ... from obtaining weapons designed to shoot down airplanes. ...'"
 

Iraq: Assault Shotgun
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

FULL TEXT BELOW:

American troops are testing a new 12 gauge automatic shotgun in Iraq. Weighing 10.5 pounds unloaded, the Auto Assault 12 (AA12) has a rate of fire of 360 rounds per minute, and uses either an 8-round box magazine (adding 12 ounces to weapon weight) or a 20 round drum magazine (adding 2.5 pounds). Recoil on the system has been reduced to that of a light rifle, due to a sophisticated recoil system. The low rate of fire makes it possible to easily fire bursts of one, two, or three shots and is capable of using and mixing all types of 12 gauge ammunition, from shot to solid slugs, as well as non-lethal rounds. Allegedly, Iraqi insurgents have little respect for the M4 rifle and the 5.56mm round, but they fear shotguns, especially a "street sweeper" like the AA12.
