    Ugh. I Can Smell The PSH Comment
    Gregory Morris, 9/17/07 8:48:50 am
    Gun buy-back day fruitful, chief says
    "Now what you have here is a sawed-off, 12-gauge shotgun," he said, snapping the weapon's foldable stock into place. "A very good street sweeper. You can conceal this gun and take out a room full of people with one shot."
    Maybe he was getting a little 12ga confused with THIS
    It's one less killing machine off the street, Chief Johnson said.
    PSH
    "This is a Reuger (sic) 9mm," he said, taking the ammunition clip that was with the gun out of the bag. "But this is the 75-round clip that came with it."
    Is the Brady Campaign writing his script for him?
    He snapped the clip into the body of the gun, completing what was already a sinister appearance.
    Oooooh, scary.
    "This gun had completely fresh, hollow-point rounds when it was brought in," he said. "So it hadn't gone very long without being used. It doesn't take too much work to make a weapon like this fully automatic."
    Maybe someone took it to the range. It doesn't take too much work to make it full-auto? Bullshiat.
    Funds for the sale were generated from the police seizure fund.
    So it is only indirectly taxpayer money. Maybe the Police Dept should start selling confiscated guns to fund these buy-backs.

    I'm telling ya folks... if you have a gun you want to get rid of, I'll "buy it back" from you. Especially if you have a 75 round magazine. I'll beat whatever gift-cards or sneakers they are giving out.

    I'm trying to figure out who makes a 75 round, 9mm magazine for a ruger firearm...
    I've seen 50rd magazines for the 10/22 (.22) and 90rd drums for the mini-14 (.223). The highest cap magazine I've seen for any 9mm Ruger firearm holds 30 rounds, and is used in Ruger 9mm pistols. Does anyone make a 75rd "clip" for the PC9? The standard mags are 15rd.

    My guess is this dude was confused. He was probably holding a min-14 (can't really tell from the picture.) "9mm" strikes fear into the hearts of pant-shitters everywhere more than ".223" does. Still, when you have a plinking magazine like that, do you fill it up with hollow points?

    I do. HP is cheaper. It's good that they were 'fresh' though. I hate it when my ammo goes stale.
    Re: Ugh. I Can Smell The PSH
    Gregory Morris, 9/18/07 12:12:46 pm
    Okie dokie. I had no idea that hollowpoints were cheaper. I mean, I know most "self defense" HPs are considerably more expensive, and I've only really used FMJs in my rifles. I did get a few boxes of 7.62x54 HPs, but I don't hunt, and I didn't notice any difference in accuracy at the range.

    Yeah, stale ammo sucks. That's why you gotta spend a lot of time at the range... keep your stock circulating. That reminds me, I need to go to the range an recirculate my cache. :)

    Still, until I find a magazine for a Ruger firearm that holds anywhere close to 75 9mm rounds, I'll assume the dude in this article is either stupid or full of shit.
