Skip to comments.A gun is worth 1,000 pictures
Posted on 12/01/2008 10:17:55 AM PST by neverdem
The quote from Sebastian D'Souza, the photographer and picture editor for the Mumbai Mirror who snapped a photo seen around the world of one of the terrorists in India last week, said it all: "I only wish I had a gun, not a camera."
One can only imagine that a photojournalist saying he wished he had a gun instead of a camera makes the sphincters of many "journalists" and other assorted forever-neutral members of the Fifth Estate slam closed faster than the shutter on D'Souza's camera, but an important point is made: Unless we as citizens are able to defend ourselves on a massive yet individual basis, we will never be able to stop a massive attack by crazed individuals. Waiting for police or the Army to show up with mops and buckets is an unacceptable strategy in fighting terrorists.
One thing is certain: Mass terrorist slaughters like the one in Mumbai could happen in the United States. That something similar and on such a grand scale hasn't happened yet isn't for lack of trying on the part of terrorists. As many mass shootings in the U.S. have demonstrated to us (and unfortunately to terrorists as well), our citizens are horrendously unprepared and untrained for a terrorist attack like the one in India last week. And by "trained," I mean more than just to dial 9-1-1 and eke out a prayer before being shot.
But what steps will the U.S. government take to ensure the safety of the general population in coming days in light of recent events? Probably to somehow regulate "Black Friday" to see to it that nobody else gets trampled to death at Wal-Mart.
The measures that need to be taken to prevent a Mumbai-style terrorist attack in the United States will not be taken at the...

I enjoy the quip, "I carry a gun because I can't carry a cop." Even if you could carry those cops, they were useless.
Isn't that an 'alleged' terrorist carrying that gun?
Looks like a rumpled umbrella.
The Pastor who told the Texas Ranger ....I carry a 45 Auto because they don’t make a 50.....well they do now !
No, that’s clearly an “alleged” militant.
What a difference from the American news media, who think no one should be armed.
Applied locally. We live in the country, out side the city limits, thus in the County jurisdiction for law enforcement. My cousin, who grew up in the same house as I did, thus is like a brother, is the county sheriff. He told me it would be TWENTY MINUTES on average for a deputy to get too us in an emergency!!!!!!!!! Unless, by luck one was just down the road at the time we called. THUS, we are armed and will defend ourselves.
He should carry one, too.
I think I’d prefer a .45 WinMag. You can get .45 pills so much more cheaply to load them up...
Nice, but a little pricey ($2,895!).
Well I took this afternoon off to go pick up my Glock slide assembly in 50GI with 5 spare mags. I already have the GI version of the 1911A1 in 50GI, the model 1. I love the 1911A1 version and will use the slide assembly on my Glock 21 frame.
I have the dies and lots of brass and gang molds for rollin my own. I like the caliber. Uses same bullet in 50AE or 500’s so I get plenty of mileage from my 1911A1 in 50GI and I will see how the “Glock” bastardized version functions !
8+1 magazines for the glock w/ 9+1 if ya want to glue on the plus 2 extended bases on the mags. On the 20 and 21 you better glue on the extended base pads or else. I do not use em myself.
Stay safe and good shooting !
An attack like that is an atrocity, something which sould be resisted vigorously. The citizen's ability to resist is the socialist's worst nightmare. For some reason people continue to vote for them.
Yes..... that was MSRP for their 1911A1... Model 1. I paid 1900 for mine. The Glock slide assembly is 600$ in 50GI.
That terrorist attack is exactly what a citizen militia would be equipped to handle.
I long for the old original 44 auto mag......:o)
Smooth little plinker !
Desert Eagle version ain’t bad just dang big !
One is assured that this same thought crossed the Minds of the Framers of the Constitution. . . “if only I had a Gun”.
When Universities put up signs on Campus saying “Gun free zone” and the Media Spikes News stories of Private citizens using Guns to stop Crimes (car jacking Edinburg, Tx.) . . Its an invitation for Terror for one state, and a “Keep Out” sign for another state.
When Terror Hits your city, Do you really want to live in a Gun Free Zone ?
More specifically, an AK sans magazine. An unloaded weapon. SOB should have been dead-right-there.
Largest S&W I own is a 45 Colt Hunter from Performance shop. I use garretts in it for a while and it was tooooooooo hot for the n-frame. I own redhawk rugers, and a Linebaugh 500 Bisley built on a ruger. But I think my next effort will be a 454/45 super redhawk. Let Bowen do an action job for me, maybe tweek this or that and use that as a all round accessory while wheeling in dangerous game regions.
If ya look close you’ll see he has taped the magazines together butt to back . He’s loaded, mags just have tape that is same color as the background .
These POS losers were tag teaming with the buddy system. One never went black without the other covering. Someone taught em a few things.
Actually, I think he's a Romulan!
All very well and good, but how many of us practice what we preach by refusing to patronize businesses that bar concealed carry on their premises and canceling subscriptions to anti-american papers such as the NYT or continuing to use the MSM evening news as a source of “information.”
This would be the downside to the the forced Darwinism we're administering to these bastards during the GWOT. The survivors are getting smarter.
I don't like anyone's odds with a CCW vs. a BG with a longarm, let alone a reasonably-competent fireteam, but it beats the hell out of engaging them with a digital camera.
The Romulan government has denied all involvement.
That’s what I found too. I really liked the .45WinMag. Monsterous downrange energy - on par with a .44Mag or 10mm loaded to full potential.
I wish the LAR was not quite so expensive tho. It isn’t made any longer (last I read) and when it was, it was a $2K piece.
That dude does not have a magazine inserted, he is a sitting duck...not like that is a bad thing...
My daughter got a Kimber .45 for her birthday.
Well, she has it already and her birthday isn’t until Jan 2nd.
I have a Kimber myself.
Apparently, someone with a youtube video claims there’s a 60 cal handgun.
I read that they worked in pairs - one shooter while other reloaded.
This evidently was a standard among various groups....so it was trained tactic.
These guys, we not a bunch of fanatic amateurs.
Oh agree....my CHL rig is only to engage if I can’t evade the threat.....
Nice turn of phrase!! Right as rain!
I wish the LAR was not quite so expensive tho. It isnt made any longer (last I read) and when it was, it was a $2K piece.
That is pretty expensive. I waited 9 months and coughed up $1500 for the Performance Center Hunter 500 S&W Magnum. I have no regrets on that purchase. I later purchased the 460 version. That comes with a little buyer's remorse. The serial number run was made with defective metal in barrel. I have to return it to S&W for inspection/repair as necessary.
LOL....That’s a 600 Nitro express.
Hardly a CHL rig.....:o)
Albeit I have PSD’s use the TC Contender in such a fashion so it’s remote yet plausible .
Thanks ! Neat video !
Thanks. I couldn’t see it at work ( i just went by the short description), is it the one with the older guy who has it blow out of his hands?
I don't think police in Great Britain routinely carry firearms to this day. I bet if you had asked this exact same photographer on Tuesday if he thought police should be armed he would have said, "No, of course not!".
My take: Another liberal mugged by reality.
Yeah...... Guy lucky he ain’t in the hurt locker..:o)
I guess it IS the video I thought it was!
I was hoping there was going to be gun pr0n in this thread. Aw, shucks.
“I only wish I had a gun, not a camera.”
What’s that old, old saying? “A conservative is a liberal who’s been mugged...”
EXTREME SHOCK USA Air Freedom Ammunition
Extreme Shock 45 ACP 125 Grain Tungsten Nytrilium Air Freedom Round
This remarkable round is a terrorists worst nightmare. Unlike rounds made of polymers that can generate lethal ricochet, the extreme shock afr round will turn to harmless powder if it misses its intended target and hits a hard surface. It is the only round in the world with this level of performance and safety. This is also possibly the world's safest home defense round, as in most circumstances, it will fragment in standard 1 half inch sheet rock wallboard.
Wish Ruger would make a standard Redhawk in .454, even if it had to be a 5 shot.
(It IS Christmas season after all...)
Sometimes, bigger holes are better.
