007 "just in time" syndrome

just "gotta' know how to use bolt, lever, pump, SS, double, DA SA, glock, revolvers, cause you "might need to know some day". Oh yeah? If all u own is SA autos, and you don't go anywhere without your SA autos, wtf chance is there that you'll need to use anything else (and HAVE that other thing, in time, hmm)? Zero, that's how much chance.

Same with surrendering to pos's who are just going to kill you anyway. Eff that, kill as many of them as you can in the first place, while you're still armed! You're not going to pull a movie stunt and escape. Nor will the cavalry intercede to save you.

Hhy would anyone prefer to be half-assed good with 7-8 kinds of guns instead of being a grand master with 1-2? The time and money spent are the same, but the former is the mark of the second-hander, the man who NEEDS "feedback from others like himself, The latter is the mark of the original thinker, who wants to EXCELL. The Class A competitor can get the hits 2-3x as fast as the class D guy, if the latter can get them at ALL, that is. In a fight, that speed difference often means that the D guy never even gets to fire. D class is the bottom 50% of competitors

Seriously, why this same post over and over and over?

The "using multiple guns means you must be half-assed with any of them" is just blatantly and demonstrably incorrect. Jerry Miculek is a rare example, as are the other top shooters in 3-gun competition; and the existence of even one exception to a 'rule', means that the rule is untrue from the start.

So no, that claim is not true. It's one of those claims that seems logical and seems like it SHOULD be true (even to me), but is easily shown to be incorrect by virtue of multiple examples to the contrary.

Miculek competitively shoots the AR, the 1911, doublestack 9mm "wondernine", the semiauto shotgun, the pump shotgun, and revolvers. So you have to either maintain that he is half-assed with them, or accept that your premise is incorrect. There is no other possible reality; one of those two is true.

I prefer autos. That said,if I'm running a Ruger Security Six Nd/or one of my Mosin Nagants; the OPFOR should be VERY worried. I'm World's Apart from "Tacticool" but I AM VERY quick,have the tenacity that rivals my preferred breeds of dogs;and when aroused have both a coldly observant nature and a decisively nasty streak.....that,and the fact that I shoot/shot a LOT of " other than autos" and I'm quite comfortable in whatever is close to band (including carry gear,LBE etc) when it's " GrabbitAndGo!"time.

This is getting soooo tiresome. Melvin brags (LIES) about owning hundreds, if not thousands of guns, but your stupid to have more than two. 'Splain that one to me Lucy.

Melvin, don't worry Meter maids are not going to kill you! Most of them probably don't even carry a gun. You constantly display you lack of knowledge of a defensive handgunning by comparing it to IPSC. First off the standards set for IPSC in 1975, are like IPSC kindergarten today, the sport, the equipment, the shooters have evolved that much. Plus, the most important point IPSC is nothing more than a game played on a 1 way range.

Looks like I wasted some money today, Smith & Wesson Model 60 357mag. with 3in barrel. Has adjustable sights. Have wanted one for awhile, so did I waste money? I think not.
If can get camera working decent, J frame pics tomorrow an maybe K frames, then N frames, then L frames.
Going to take a BUNCH to range tomorrow an maybe Thur. Shoot those money wasters! Might take a 1022 Ruger.
What ain't going is the pocket 938

killjoy. why no 938? no wussy loaded 9mm ammo?

if you had to get your money out of that stuff tomorrow, you'd be lucky to get 60c on the dollar, and you know it as well as I do.

The gun industry, and C&R Importers have made a LOT of money off of me. I don't give a Rat's Rectum. I'm enjoying them all. From the Russian Nagant (eeew, bad gun!) to a Colt high dollar AR.

That's true of pretty much anything though, isn't it..? New car loses 20% of the value the first month. New shoes, new inkpen, new underwear, new whatever; unless there's some special uniqueness to an item, it almost always goes down in resale value.

With that many, in accordance with the prophecy it has been decreed that you are even less than "half-assed". Just accept it...

Isn't all "value" relative? The value of enjoyment is up to the individual. Do I enjoy my $28,000.00 SUV? Not really. Do I enjoy my fishing boat costing half that? Hell yes.

I do not think you have fired or used a 938 for any length of time, if you had you would quickly change your mind about them.
Mine went back to Sig for a broken extractor an mainspring housing that allowed the sear spring to slip. First time out after it came back the damm mag release broke. Good thing they have a lifetime warranty. Son ended up getting two of the damm things just to have one to shoot!
Lets put it this way, I am looking at more nine ammo then I will ever be able to shoot out of the Hi Powers an Govt model 9. 15,000+
I have some good offers on all my Smiths, some have doubled in price but NOT FOR SALE. Did offer to trade a Model 29-2 6 1/2" in the wood box but Ford Perfect has not filled up two 5 gal buckets with other guns yet. Just have to know how to buy them. I buy them for the enjoyment of being able to shoot them when I want, I do take a little better care of the Smiths then the autos. Roughest Smith I own is a model 14 pinned an recessed that came from a 87 year old retired Police Office, a friend of the family. He bought it new an fired 12 times but left it in a holster in back of closet for 20 some years, pitted all to hell, fantastic shooter just looks like hell. Two weeks after I got it he passed away.
I wanted to send it to Smith an get it redone, nope, son likes it as is, he also knew the owner, the look in his eyes when he sees an shoots it is something else, it will be his birthday present in Dec.

why u think I married a young one, Joe? and if you're standing in one place for most of your shooting, you can rig up sheet plastic to funnel your brass into a bucket. Today, a lot of guys shoot aluminum or steel cased stuff and just leave it, ya know.
