    Yup, it was the thrill of a lifetime to crew on the Vets For Peace Golden Rule in 2016. An amazing story.

    And ya know, they are looking for crew for this year's voyage to SoCal - hint, hint

No one could predict it, no gun laws would have changed it and I for one don't feel better because you posted on a wooden boat forum. The kid is dead and 21 other kids were killed while I wrote this.

    I have a 10 and 12 year old, it breaks my heart when these things happen but I grew up a long time ago and realize it could be my kids and there isn't a damn thing I can do about it.

    Ah, you're a bit of a fatalist, maybe that is why I don't see eye to eye with you very often.

    I call bull****. Your free access to guns allowed this "Collateral Damage" where a child lost their future and its parents were left grieving. It would not have happened in the UK, Canada, Australia, because those countries have sensible gun laws.
    If it breaks your heart every time a child is shot, network with other like minded people on social media, and start a campaign.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    hahahaha! I had to look up "aunt Sally".... what a strange game and funny reference.

    "Aunt Sally is a traditional English game usually played in pub gardens and fairgrounds that dates back to the 17th Century [1][2] in which players throw sticks or battens at a model of an old woman's head.[3] Leagues of pub teams,[4] each consisting of eight players, still play the game today, throughout the spring and summer months, mainly in Oxfordshire and some bordering counties.[1]"

    Thank you Joe, I thought for sure you'd lambaste me. I plan on locking it in a safe as an insurance policy, I don't plan on whipping it out for every bump in the night, I have two large dogs that will alert and deter well enough. I want the option to carry if, big if, the climate requires it. Also, I haven't settled on a pistol but CT law is weird and the most expedient way to own a gun is to have a full on, all around, carry permit. I might just get a shotgun and call it a day. I might get a semi-auto rifle. Still exploring my options, feeling out the most reasonable and comfortable path. I will train, a lot.

    Mainly, I refuse to be threatened as a liberal and have them know they can intimidate me simply because they assume I'm unarmed because of my principals. We live in a different country now, we've seen a series of tipping points with the Trump election and all of the nut jobs that have come out of the woodwork, I hope my fears are unfounded but I'm no longer willing to be vulnerable to these whack-jobs.

    good luck... don't forget that in the dark of night when you're scared (yes, include myself) is the wrong time to figure out how to load and shoot it... practice somehow

    Guns don't reduce violence. Guns don't increase violence. Reducing violence reduces violence. It's the desire, not the tool. Drugs, alcohol, drunk driving, et al, address the root cause of the problem, not the particular means/tool/drug/drink/vehicle/gun that is used as the tool, not the motivation.

    You seriously have never heard of .22 short. It's like it says. A rimfire .22, shorter than .22 Long Rifle:



    I think it's the least powerful cartridge ever made. Commonly used in Olympic rapid fire pistol competition due to low recoil and thus faster recovery for the next shot. These events have very short time stages, 5 shots in 8, 6, and 4 seconds. By comparison, when I competed in high power rifle, rapid fire was 10 shots in a leisurely 60 seconds, unless it was the "rattle battle", the National Infantry Trophy Team match, where teams of 6 shooters, shooting at 8 targets, with 384 rounds total, at ranges of 600, 500, 300, and 200 yards, 50 seconds at each stage, must put as many shots into each target as possible, with at least 6 hits in each target, with each team receiving a bonus at each yard line equal to the square of the number of targets with 6 or more hits. I feel like I'm explaining a game of Fizbin.

    Actually I said the .22 is the most deadly round.

    What were these cheap handguns used for ? And I don't think it was for an Olympic sport.



    For the gun nuts this is a Colt Banker’s Special DA revolver, .22 cal., 2” round barrel, blue finish, checkered Colt medallion wood grips

    Out of curiosity, how did you come to the conclusion that the 22 is
    THE MOST DEADLY ROUND?

    That sounds like fun. When you say 'high power rifle', what calibre? Were scopes allowed?
