    They may know how to run a website, but they apparently don't know anything about guns, or how they work!

    Yes, it is a another case of FTG. There have been way too many of those in recent years.

    Wow, a 200+ yard shot on an animal with a service pistol? Is that as unethical as I think it is?

    Is it unethical if it works?

    I'm sure it's probably more internet boasting than truth, but if you can make the shot and do it cleanly, what's the problem?

    No, there is nothing wrong with it, and I agree that there must be at least some either internet boasting and/or truly faulty measurements going on, but you'd have to be a heck of a shot to attempt that with an iron sighted heavy triggered CZ-52.

    I just don't think I would be that willing to attempt to shoot a small dog-sized animal from that distance using only an iron-sighted pistol.

    I must be missing something...failure to extract, wouldn't that be a common extractor problem? Never heard of a "hot" barrel causing cases not to be extracted. Maybe I havn't been shooting long enough....Guess I'll head back to my range to catch up...MG

    No you didn't miss anything. That's the point. A hot barrel expanding and letting gases out is highly improbable, and if it did occur it would aid in extraction, not cause it to fail.

    I bought a brand new Ruger P95 that failed exactly as described right out of the box. Falure to extract the spent case, with a fresh round jammed up into the primer of the old case almost every time. Never could wrap my mind around how this was happening. The extractor appeared to work perfectly when hand cycling, and extractor probs or not, it seemed to me the spent case should have at least been blown out of the chamber and stovepiped or something.

    Had to send it to Ruger, and I got it back repaired with no explanation.
