Why is Biden worried about a child that his liberal abortionist friends missed?

Kill ‘em in utero, kill ‘em right out of utero, kill ‘em later accidentally - in your world, what’s the difference, Joe? And why the concern over the last example when you are fine with all the others?

Since my last post, I have done much gooooooooogle searching for 7.63x39 ammo or reloading dies. None to be found. I suspect no such caliber exists. Misprints for 7.62x39 abound. I am a Viet Nam vet. (1st Cavalry Div 11B CIB 1970-71) I heard rumors of ammo interchangeability at the time, and later, but saw no examples of same. Sounds like just another myth about Viet Nam.

You guys don’t get it, everytime Joe shoots a gun he hits one of his own kids, he speaks from experience!

Biden is so generous with dishing out his entertaining stupidity quotes because he wants to make up for his fact that he’s the cheapest man to ever sit in the Vice President’s chair.

What’s interesting about Biden’s lack of generosity is that when Obama had him vetted, it raised no flags that Biden doesn’t do charity. Obama probably thought $368 a year in charity was pretty high. Or, perhaps Obama calculated (correctly) that the likes of Stephanopoulos and Diane Sawyer and their Left Wing Media Battalion would keep their mouths shut.

“7.62x39”
“7.63x39”

What are you shooting? Do you have a pre-70s AK47?
Shoulda been used in Nam. It was standard in Soviet AK after WW2 up into the 70s.

..or am I missing the whole conversation?

When my Dad was a kid, they would skinny-dip in a quarry pond. One day when they went to get their clothes, someone started shooting a .22 at them. Don’t recall if they finally got their clothes or had to haul out of there bare-azzed. That would ave been in the mid-1930’s.

Do you know anyone who will volunteer to be shot at ten feet with number eight birdshot? I think the damage to the belly will be somewhat worse than the damage to that door.

“I just can’t believe it. Why do they keep giving this guy a microphone?”

With Bill Clinton out of office, joke writers found redeeming features in Plugs Biden. Somebody’s gotta inspire all the jokes American comedians need.

MrB made this claim post#70: “The commies did this with their 7.63 chambered weapons.
They could shoot our ammo, but we couldn’t shoot theirs.” I asked for proof post #83. The conversation went from there. I contend there is no such thing as 7.63X39.

That metal door skin is about the thickness of the material in a beer can.

It’s been tested quite a bit. Birdshot is not very effective and should not be used for home/self defense. There’s not really an argument there.

http://www.theboxotruth.com/docs/bot22.htm

Wounding the goblin is the very last thing you want to do. Why anyone would bother with birdshot is totally beyond me. There are so many good tests available to show how poorly it performs. Yet it keeps coming up over and over again.

Birdshot is very inexpensive. If it were effective, police and military shotguns would be loaded with it.

If you want to fire birdshot at an intruder, then load your pistols with shotshells, too. It’s effective right? They make versions that will cycle in a semi, too. So go ahead and load up.

OK GAME TIME!

Fill in the blanks with any household or recreational item and use for item, and make a true sentence. lets see how many innocent items we can get to illustrate this stupidity, I'll go first:

If you use a baseball bat for junior’s tee ball team, you can kill your kids!

Or

If you use Ammonia based window cleaner for home cleaning, you can kill your kids!

Well, I would certainly never consider using it at any real distance but I don’t think a load of number eight at ten feet would be anything to be happy about. I’ve got a few birdshot shells along with some buckshot, maybe I’ll do my own test. As far as loading a pistol with it I would not even consider it.

So let me see if I have this right... a shotgun will shoot a bad guy through a door but won’t shoot your kids through a wall, but an AR-15 will shoot your kids through the wall but is no good for shooting bad guys through the door.

OK, I got it, Joe.

There’s no reason to try birdshot.

It makes no sense. #4 buck or better, period.

There’s no reason to try anything less, or hope, or guess.

We know that buckshot is best. #4 buck is the smallest effective shot if over penetration is a concern.

The best overall shell for home defense is Federal #1 buck with the FC wad.

Next is plated 00 buck.

Since the #1 buck is often hard to find, by default the best available shell is 00 buck.

Why would anyone experiment with rounds that are likely to be ineffective when lives are at stake?

Especially when proven rounds are readily available?

You have to aim the shotgun anyway, so why use bird shot? Aim like you should, and hit the perp hard, with buckshot.

There are credible studies that show the .223 safer in social situations than a 12 gauge.

So blindly shooting thru a door with a shotgun is better?

if you don’t defend your kids they can die in a home invasion and fire, just ask that poor doctor in CT.

actually I wouldn’t really care in Biden’s case...

I just can't believe it. Why do they keep giving this guy a microphone?

I don't know, but whatever else they do, I hope they keep on doing it. Joe is a cannon for our side.

Keep talking, Joe. Just keep it up.

I wonder how many of these politicians would volunteer to go, alone, to someone’s house and demand the guns be surrendered.
