.25 Auto Speculative Fiction

This is just a super nerdy article on what if when John Browning invented the .25 ACP it supplanted .22 Rimfire and Rimfire ammo went the way of Pinfire.

Go have a read, but it makes perfect sense!

And for the nay-sayers this is the big take-away:

But what else would this mean? Well, a few things I think. And most of these things make me wish we lived in that alternate universe.

Scalability: This is probably the most important thing for most shooters. Rimfire ammunition has to be produced on special machinery, designed specifically for producing rimfire ammunition. This means that when there is a huge run on the market for .22, ammo makers cannot simply “scale up” production; they are limited by the capacity of the equipment they own (or obviously, any huge additional investment they are willing to make). This isn’t the case with centerfire ammunition.

Centerfire ammo lines are much more versatile. The ol’ .45 Auto ain’t selling so well but we’re outta .38 Special? No problem; let’s tool up half of those machines for .38 Special and increase output. Half the reason for the massive price hikes and lack of availability of .22 a couple of years ago was due largely to an increase in demand, but a very finite production capability. Having our plinkers loaded up with a centerfire round would help alleviate this a little.

Also remember that .25 ACP is semi-rimmed, that means it can work in a revolver just as easily as semi-auto, but with less rim to allow rim-lock in the latter.

And Centerfire is just a better technology than rimfire, hence why .22 LR. .22 WMR, and .17 HMR are pretty much the only rimfires left in a world filled with a rainbow of centerfire cartridges!

Give it a read!

Assorted Calibers Podcast Ep 139: Soon May the Tendieman Come

In This Episode:

  • Erin and Weer’d forgo a Main Topic for some amazing segments!
  • Xander talks about the merits of being excellent, and not judging new gun owners for the guns they have;
  • Speaking of cheap guns,  Oddball recently bought an Altor and he shares his thoughts on this minimalist pistol;
  • and finally, there’s been a lot of talk about the short sale of Gamestop stocks. Oddball, Weer’d, and Matt were discussing it before an ACP Film Track, and the result was too good — and too timely! — for a Blooper Reel.

Assorted Calibers Podcast Ep 138: The Sick, Lame, and Lazy Round Table

No one had any segments ready and several contributors weren’t feeling well, and so Weer’d, Oddball, Steve, and David got together to have a round table of 2nd Amendment news and miscellaneous discussion.

We talked about:

  • a new Kansas law that would recognize all carry permits (despite Kansas being a Constitutional Carry state);
  • Anti-Gunners that are targeting State Preemption;
  • Bloomberg targeting “gun influencers” on YouTube;
  • and why should you worry about gun control in a world of 3D Printers?

Internet Censorship has gone TOO FAR

So one thing I’m VERY upset with modern politics is there appears to be a cabal of wealthy powerful people, mostly men, who can sexually assault people, especially minor children without question.
Is this the Q-Anon some people are talking about? I don’t know.
What I do know is that people KNEW Harvey Weinstein was a sexual Predator for DECADES, and only recently did people take any action. Bill Clinton had several allegations of rape before he even took office, and based on my understanding of modern Consent (that were being formed in the days when Clinton was President) his sexual relationship with Monica Lewinski was non-consensual. Kevin Spacey was known for years to be a pedophile, and only recently has that been discussed openly.
Of course we have Jeffery Epstein who was only a name you heard about in far-right-wing channels until he became national news. It was well-known he was a pedophile, and he had even been charged, convicted, and “Sentenced” for it. Of course the Sentence was served at his home with minimal supervision. It was also well-known he wasn’t just a predator, but a pimp of under-age girls (and allegedly boys for above-mentioned Mr. Spacey), to the rich and powerful.
After his second arrest, he died in mysterious circumstances, and the alleged photos and video-tapes of his clientele, I assume for blackmail, have never surfaced.

Now of course the sex offender I want to talk about now is our President Joe Biden. Not only are there allegations of sexual assault, as well as reports of inappropriate behavior towards female members of his Secret Service Detail, BUT ACTUAL VIDEO EVIDENCE OF BIDEN TOUCHING CHILDREN IN INAPPROPRIATE WAYS.

Note this video I found by a VERY specific search term, and even then I had to scroll through three pages of videos of Main Stream Media talking about how allegations of Biden’s Pedophilia are false.

I posted this video on Facebook, and look what I get!

FALSE INFORMATION????? This is NOTHING but clips from CSPAN, there isn’t even a voice-over! What is false about this?
This is the reason THEY give

There is no credible evidence that supports this claim. In Joe Biden’s more than 40 years of public life, we could find no news reports, formal accusations, complaints, arrests or investigations that implicate him in any sort of sex crimes involving kids.

Who are you going to believe? Facebook and Politifact, or your lying eyes???

Even scarier is there was another video where the Then-Vice-Preisdent was openly groping the breasts of a pre-teen girl repeatedly, and that video is totally gone.

This is too far! Not only is is garbage, and partisan, but it’s protecting sexual assault against children, and I’m fucking pissed about it!
