Willowed;
--However I did just sit through why .22 Long Rifle ammo/guns are more useful than the traditional 9MM or larger rounds. The guy makes a good case.--

I think I posted that MT. I'm not sure he was saying more useful, but instead that the 22 is not nearly so easily dismissed or as useless as it is always portrayed.
As I was writing this I realized this debate is a lot like climate science. You have all these yapping know it alls who are essentially modelers arguing back and forth over calculated energies and ballistics and using slabs of gelatin or sheets of plywood or like one guy I watched comparing 9mm, 10mm, 40 S&W and 45 ACP using a model consisting of two shanks of pork ribs encasing a pigheart and all of it wearing a flannel shirt and an overcoat.

But then I always go back to actual data regarding actual real world results in almost 1,800 real world shootings as compiled by Greg Ellifritz. Why consult a model of the real world when we have the real world itself? And in that real world the 22 long rifle is the equal of pretty much every other handgun caliber except in the not unimportant are of the incapacitation [or not] of the shootee. In the real world, all the wrangling over caliber is largely irrelevant, but how many clicks would that generate compared to "We compare the popgun nine mil to the bone crushing 45"?

Stop the Steal - Stu Cvrk
@STUinSD

Gordon Chang is Right!

1. We can no longer compartmentalize China.

2. The Communist Party is blatantly committing atrocities. Therefore, those who trade with China, invest in it, or promote ties with Beijing— ....

3. ... in other words, strengthen or legitimize the regime that dominates the country—are enabling the Party and therefore becoming complicit in its crimes.

4. Xi Jinping is forcing the issue by making it clear where China is going, so it's time for people to take responsibility for the consequences of their actions.

[And the ChiComs are complicit in the massive election fraud!]

Just to make sure you don't go all Squanto on us OL, I will say I don't agree with this;

Clarice "I think Trump can win but if he loses Biden will be the weakest president in US history."

Absolutely true; but sufficient to achieve the goals they desire.

That was in interesting link Ig.

Re. "the not unimportant area of the incapacitation [or not] of the shootee" my horse sense tells me that those high on certain substances wouldn't have the "hey I'm shot, I'm supposed to run away or fall now" reaction, and the size, location and depth of the hole will matter. This is why I (before the canoe accident) had 9s sitting around over .22s. And just smile when someone repeats the Col. Cooper adage about never showing up at gunfights unless your caliber starts with 4.

AB,
I'll always remember Reagan not knowing he was shot even though there was a 22 bullet about an inch from his heart.
Again, I think the point of the video was having a whole lot of 22 firepower available is a lot more effective than people realize, not that a 22 is superior to a 9mm.

Most of the answers were in the "What about Hong Kong/Uyghurs" vein when I would approach things from the "when are google and its many tentacles going to quit squatting on native lands" angle.
They're perfectly happy to mouth off about our evil ancestors so long as it costs them nothing except maybe a bit of cash for cultural indulgences, just so long as that cash is not sufficient to actually put a dent in their lifestyles. Meanwhile they continue to profit massively standing on the shoulders of the evil ancestors they claim are genocidal racists.

The biggest harm will be in their appointments. Biden may be a paste eater but whoever he puts in at AG - and, worse, whoever they appoint and promote - will be able to do incalculable damage, much of it out of the public eye.

Understandable for sure. But, like the scorpion, we knew what he was before we offered him a ride on our backs.

I think I hate the "Leaders of the GOP" the most because they attacked us from within while lying through their teeth about their true goals.

The left would never gotten this close to the finish line if the boys who came home from WWII had continued to fight for Truth, Justice and The American Way as hard as they did the enemies abroad. High on that list would have been smacking the hell out of me and my Boomer peers in the 60's. Other things too, circa 60's.

Gus,

Last time I was with GPS he came over to Holland for a meeting with the PM and his transportation minister and finance minister as we lobbied for the High Speed Rail project. Since my wife is a native Dutch speaker we were assigned as his and wife's escort through all protocols.

Driving around he and I relived a few interesting vignettes like him being called back to DC during the Falkland Island war. Around the same time as the drunk lawyers party:) He is a super guy who like to eat the donuts during our Exec. Comm. presentations and never offer us any.

I wonder if Trump et al should have taken the evidence to the state legislatures first, so he doesn't run out of time. Gore got his delayed certification, and that hurt him.

peter

I just very quickly scanned the Bibas opinion. The judge scolds the Trump lawyers for their delay in moving more quickly. I do not know the reasons why the complaints were not more broadly drawn up in the first instance rather than having to ask the court for permission for leave to amend pleadings twice. My gut reaction is that this decision does not augur well for the final outcome; instead one gets the impression that using Uncle Leo (Rudy Giuliani) as lead counsel in Pennsylvania, well past his courtroom prime may have been a major error, Conrad Black puts it much better than I could hope to: quote: The president predicted the abuse of unsolicited mass-mailed ballots and ballot harvesting, but did not put an adequate legal team in place on the ground in time with the necessary resources to combat it. He is not blameless in the incoherence and disorganization of this blizzard of uncoordinated lawsuits his counsel have mounted, or in the ambiguity of the status and implausibility of the claims advanced by the estimable Sidney Powell. end quote.

MM, I am not despairing, but these legal opinions are rubbing the Trump team's attorneys' collective noses in their sloppiness of pleading. Likely a part of is due to Trump's inability to get top lawyers due to the Lincoln Projects doxxing of big law law firms, however, since Trump anticipated that there was going to be fraud in the counting, these complaints could have been drawn up weeks before election day. Instead, they all smell of the midnight oil. Again, I am not giving in to despair but I think that being realistic will result in less pain in the long run.

matt - deplore me if you must

Handguns are generally useful out to @ 15-20' or so max with most users. One reason that many cops will fire a full magazine is that they are usually horrible shots. So when Buster Nutcrack in Kenosha pulled a knife he got capped in the ass several times.

A .22LR has pretty good velocity at those ranges. It may not kill you outright but it will f you up. Low recoil, so a flatter trajectory. .22's are pretty accurate.

Brennan needs to be taken out. Period. Maybe someone could arrange a boating accident with John F'ing Kerry.
