    After spending decades making fun of stick flingers there was no way he was going to do that. My Uncle Bruce did though when he got bored with hunting with a rifle.

    If a lawyer can't define the word "need", can they be expected to define "right"?

    It is too small for deer and to large for most small game outside of varmint hunting. that is why the idiots cling it a high powered weapon puzzle me

    I have a 45, a shotgun (both about a hundred years old), a 22 target pistol (International rapid fire) and a match grade rifle. But some would consider that an arsenal even though they all serve different purposes.

    I think the fastest I ever managed on the Remington (and this is out of a 5 shot magazine) was all 5 in 12 seconds, but all 5 hit the target

    Again, I'm only working off a limited knowledge here, but I would imagine that for your average gun owner, they would be able to fire more rounds from a semi automatic than from a bolt action rifle or single action revolver.

    The point I'm trying to get to is to limit the amount of rounds an average spree killer would be able to throw around in a set period of time, and whilst some would be proficient enough to fire off a single action revolver or bolt action rifle faster than a semi, for most people this would put them at a disadvantage.

    Is that a reasonable summary?

    Remember Pelosi saying about the healthcare act "We'll just have to pass it to see what's in it"? Maybe she should have read it first.....Senate amendment 3276, Sec. 2716, part c.

    Are you trying to say that Dread isn't an assassin space cowboy with mad fucking revolver skills? If so, you have zero imagination, and you're a big downer, and you've obviously never played video games with him! You need to read more of those fun books you told me about.

    Singer action revolvers are mostly replicas and antiques most revolvers sold and used in the US are double action so they fire as fast as you pull the trigger

    I was not saying that a semi-can't fire faster, but that before you set standards you should have at least a tiny bit of a clue on what those standards mean.

    I wasn't setting standards, I was throwing out a suggestion, I also expressed my own ignorance up front.

    And I note that you didn't answer my question.
