Can someone please explain this to me? I went to my favorite shooting range the other day. Then I stack a few coke cans into a pyramid. Next I start doing hammers at 7 yards with my pistol( custom Lorcin .25 with Surefire G2 attached)

Within 5 minutes I'm surrounded by cops with their pistols drawn!
They order me to the ground at gunpoint! Spent 2 months in jail and WalMart insists that I pay for the soda/ display cases to boot.

What gives????????????? :scrutiny:

I can't quite tell if that was the perfect deadpan, or if you took that post at face value.

Nice pistol.

Is that the long slide or the short slide Lorcin? Was it real Coke or Sam's Cola? Makes a difference when you are using the lighter 230 grain loads in a .25 :evil:

I wasn't deleted, it was moved to General Gun Discussion where a thread like this fits. You weren't discussing strategies or tactics, but it is a pretty funny thread so I thought we'd keep it alive here.

Reminds me of the time I caught a glimpse of my wife bending over the freezer. Something about the amount of bare leg that was visible immediately excited me.

I moved quickly behind her and she responded to my touch. We did the deed with her leaning on the freezer.

So, what's the best caliber for shooting watermelons, BTW? I'm assuming 9mm is too weak to even break the rind, so I'm guessing a 45ACP would blow them into little chunks, right? :D

Flatfender

Yeah, the 9mm will bounce right off the watermelon, where the 45acp would make watermelon wine. :uhoh:

WOW! I hope you didn't bite your tongue too bad!
Instead of using the term "custom", why didn't you say that you were shooting a "TACTICAL Lorcin .25"?
Why didn't you say that, at 7 yards, your Lorcin pistol (AKA: Paperweight) was very effective at knocking down the pyramid of Coke cans when you THREW the pistol at it? You didn't mention how many rounds you fired, but because you suddenly had the police surrounding you, I have to wonder....was that Lorcin .25 a full-auto pistol with an "endless" high-capacity magazine? Maybe belt-fed?

Considering that the "average" response time by the police to ANY major shooting incident is roughly 7.45 minutes, you SHOULD have been able to shoot your pyramid of Coke cans several times, and STILL have time to calmly walk out of the gun range, drive home, and open up a can of Coke to DRINK!

Lastly, WHY am I even responding to your post?
Maybe you've been SNORTING too many Cokes! Uh, they're for DRINKING!

As I'm no longer"welcome" at Walmart I decided on 7-11 this time.......



As I was leaving the house I stuffed my Glock 20 "man gun" into my pants sans holster (mexican carry) My backup is a Wilson Combat full custom 1911 with alll the IPSC options in my $500 leather pankake holster custom made by Belgian monks who devote their lives to silence and holster making. The holster was a gift from my Seal Team 6 buddies when I retired- but all records of my involvement were distroyed in a fire "accident"

I put on my Royal Robbins vest (matching pants too) The vest prevents anyone from knowing I'm carrying and looks damned good with the "From my cold dead hands" shirt I was wearing!

I also had my S&W Cenentennial in Kramer ankle holster- obviously an effective rig since so many guys in the magazines have it.

Lastly, I had my "covert sniper" ID in my wallet and my concealed weapon badge on my belt.


I was ready for anything!

I drove my bug out truck to 7-11. It's a "Tactical Edition" Subaru Brat that's been supercharged- 4 cylinders of ground pounding fury. As I pulled into 7-11 I saw a nefarious looking female eyeballing me from behind her mother's SUV. The girl scout uniform is an old Al Qaeda disguise so I upped my threat level.

When the girl reached into her "cookie box" and started in my direction I went into action!I attempted a tactical roll but fell flat on my face to avoid any incoming rounds and make it look intentional.

The store owner called 9-11 which was good because I was drawing my Glock was now out and I might need help with the "hostiles"

Unfortunately, since I didn't have a holster, the gun "went off" and the bullet creased my wienie. This happens alot so I just bit down on an empty 9mm case I carry.

I laid down fire in the direction of the "girl scout troop" to pin them down and assess my next move. I decided to take out the leader they called "mother" and ran at her. I threw my groin into her knee. I vomited because I knew the smell would repulse her and allow me to seek cover.

I ran screaming for the Subaru. I jumped into the backseat and cut myself on the M16 bayonet (gift from an operator in Israel) That was laying there. Oh well! I lost my ass in the war and it just made red marks appear on the implant ass.

As I attempted to start the truck it backfired. The cops that had just pulled in mistook this (and the gun I was pointing at them) as a threat and tased me.

I needed to ditch as much weight as possible for the getaway so I soiled
myself immediately (old seal team 6 trick)

I knew I had to take out "mother" before she ordered the "troops" to slaughter the police. So I aimed the G20 at her just as a cop mistakenly put 2 rounds into my chest!

Luckily I had my level 8 body armor on(level 4 is for sissies so I always duct-tape extra plates on)

I didn't want to hurt the cops because they obviously thought I was the threat and hadn't realized the girls scouts were terrorists.

I KNEW it was a ruse.

I showed my badge to the cop who'd shot me and explained the situation. He ordered me to drop the pistol. I did so as I was still armed. (still had the bayonet attached to my backside)

The cop read my badge then maced me. I started screaming like a girl and waving my arms because my boat team leader in the Seals said it worked. They also tased me but I ripped out the cords,and 1 nipple, instantly. I began to take evasive action- running in the zig-zag fashion. The extra weight of the bayonet slowed me down.

It would have to be hand to hand now! I knew the cop couldn't take me since he was 300 lbs of muscle and would be slowed down by all of that useless weight. I threw a right eye into his left fist, and a left knee into his maglite-didn't faze him!

So I drew my Benchmade Auto and was tased again. I was ready this time and only peed myself half as much.

Next thing i knew I was unconscious-that'll teach em!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Really? I would have thought the opposite, that a big heavy bullet would just drill a hole in the watermelon and a 9mm would pop it.

When I was a kid, we got bored on a dove hunt one afternoon and shot some watermelons with 12 ga dove loads. Pretty spectacular. :what:

But this isn't the time of year to be stalking watermelons at Wal-Mart. They've got pumpkins out now. Pumpkins are a lot harder to stalk and take a lot more killing than any old watermelon.

They'll charge if they're only wounded too, so shoot straight.

Makes a difference when you are using the lighter 230 grain loads in a .25


230 grain .25 slugs? They'd look like lead pencils! :eek:

That pipsqueak brass doesn't hold enough powder to cycle the slide and eject the bullet from the business end of the barrel. You'd have to wear steel toed shoes when you fired it or you'd get bruised feet from the bullet dropping on 'em! :what:

I'm growing tired of the lack of serious discussion on this forum (especially in the Tactics and Political threads!)

So I have a question.

An important qustion!

A life or death question.

Here it is-......................

what the heck does "pancake" mean.

No I'm not referring to the food.

I heard a song recently where the rapper says "I'm big and I'm black and I smoke and I PANCAKE"

What the **** does that mean?????????????????????????
