Snitchin' is Bitchin'. Not really, it depends on the context. If someone is cheating on someone I'd tell the person. But if someone is connected and doing illicit shit hell no.

It's the same reason I have no interest in playing Borderlands 3. I don't really find the idea of Internet influencers and meme-spouting assholes being the main antagonists to be all that entertaining. Everything I've seen of their dialogue is irritating as fuck, and not in a "Man, I want to shoot these people" sort of way (which is what I think they were going for), but more in a "Man, I don't want to play this game" sort of way.

Had the same issues with Borderlands 2. But then again the head writer on that basically just put a bunch of memes in the game.

My main complaint about the Layla games is that she and her entire team come across like people who would be spending all of their time on Twitter and Tumblr, not people who are part of a secret conspiracy that has been hidden in the shadows for a thousand years, influencing world events. Layla's researcher in Odyssey specifically comes across like someone who doesn't know how to interact with other humans without resorting to memes and references. And Layla herself is a blatant unrealistic slacktivist rebel. It doesn't make me more sympathetic to her and her plight as a character, it makes me root for the Templars.

Same issue I had with the Watch Dogs games. The characters seem like they were written by 40+ year old creative executives who only know about youth culture through skimming tumblr, twitter, and reddit.

I never really disliked the Desmond scenes, but I actively dislike Layla and most of her supporting cast. If they stick with a renewed emphasis on the present at all, I wish they'd switch to a different main character (but I doubt they will, because they've made her too important).

IMO Ubisoft sucks at writing modern day characters. All of them seem to come across as Burger King Kids Club characters in the modern era. Desmond and his dad are alright though.

mooreandrew58 posted... seen video footage of people taking a few shots from a police issue gun to put down (still approaching despite being shot) and police usually carry bigger.

Police usually carry 9mm, but a few departments still carry .40. The thing about people and getting shot is the for most part the results vary person to person. A lot of factors occur in a shooting, and there really isn't a single king solution. Take the 1986 FBI Miami shootout. A bunch of FBI agents got shot with two being killed. The aftermath it was found that the suspects didn't have body armor, nor were on any drugs. Their firearms simply failed to perform adequately. The whole event lead to the FBI issuing agents 10mm handguns, then .40 when they found out their agents had problems qualifying with the 10mm, then later on back to the 9mm. The whole unfortunate event was more of an issue personal negligence that unfortunately cost lives.

They are designed to not penetrate as it causes excess damage. Shotguns aren't designed for man hunts.
Shotguns have been used in combat since WW1, and police units still use shotguns. Perhaps you mean over penetrate the target. Your more than welcome to look up ballistic gel results from using 00 buck to see how far it would penetrate.

Rimfire isn't made for automatics. The damage done to the shell makes them reasonably regularly catch in the removal mechanism.

The problem with rimfire is rimfire isn't as reliable as center fire. This is due to the process of how the primer is applied in the casing. The issue your talking about is called stovepipe malfunction. Which can happen in any repeating arm. The cause of this is usually bad magazines, poor ammo, dirty gun, or a bad recoil spring. Also worth noting guns that tend to look like historic firearms but are chambered in .22 tend to have feed and and ejection issues. Be this ether manufacturing issues, or perhaps the design of the firearm wasn't built with a .22 in mind.

If you so want, let me link you to a video where a guy shoots 3000 rounds of .22 out of a collection of semi automatics to test the reliability of .22 ammo, and how they perform in semi automatics.

ultra magnus13 posted... 22lr is not an ideal self defense cartridge, but If all I owned was a 22 rifle I wouldn't feel under equipped defending my house with a 10/22 or Model 60.

Agree, it wouldn't be my first choice. But if all I had was a 10/22 or a model 60 I could make it work and be 'okay' with it.

Remember that one chick that posts pics of herself having an anime orgasm. Delphine something or other. She sold her bath water and it was sold out so fast.
She also pulls about $145,000 a month making faces and dressing lewd. I think a jar of her pee is still for sale though.

It can't really though. It killed via infection in the wild west and it embeds at surface level like a shotgun pellet. It also jams up guns.

I had no idea we are still using black powder in modern cartridges. (we don't)
Also the idea that shotgun pellets have no penetration is foolish. "It also jams up guns." What exactly do you even mean by that?

You are never taught by professionals to shoot for the head. You aim for center mass as its the easiest target. Clearly you've never had any training.

Perhaps I should've fleshed out my post more. "Getting shot in the head with a .22 usually stops the person. Center mass shots can be very effective as well." I more against the idea that a .22lr is just a scaled up bb gun caliber and that it wont stop someone.

If someone wants to be armed with a .22lr firearm for home defense I would suggest a Ruger 10/22. Extremely light recoil, accurate, cheap to buy, cheap to shoot, and the longer barrel length gives the round a bigger boost allowing for quality expansion on hollow points. Couple this with the ten round magazine it comes with it (not to mention larger aftermarket magazines) could be sufficient for a home defense situation.

Actually, it won't stop them and it will make them angry. It will, however, kill them, it just generally takes longer.

Getting shot in the head with a .22 usually stops the person. A .22 isn't a stepped up red rider BB gun. Statistically the .22LR has killed more people then any other caliber.

Like a Civil War minie ball, the dirty little wax-coated bullet carries all kind of debris into the wound, ensuring a serious and often fatal infection.

Where do you get this? What made the minie ball so effective was its conical shape, which lead to higher muzzle velocity and greater mass then a standard caliber ball. The shape also gave it superior penetration and accuracy.

lastly maybe be cautious in how you customize your guns and how they look. some states who arnt as gun friendly may try to pin something on you because your weapon looks scary or you carry some crazy unique type of ammo. if thats the case maybe dont try and get fancy, maybe even fudd it up a little.

He lives in New York so he is going to have to fudd it up. A maverick 88 will do fine. Its just a mossberg made near Mexico. If he does have to use it it doesn't look scary, and since he probably wont get his gun back he'll only be out no more than $300 dollars (not counting all the legal fees and bullshit)

I live in a 3000 sq ft. house. including the basement. It is a two story home, built in 1892. There is an attached garage, built in 1987. The well is under the house. The house sits on 0.9 acres of land, with close proximity to two cities and one town, with easy access to a major highway at three locations. The house uses gas for cooking, as well as electric. We have a coal stove, wood stove, and an electric furnace .

There are several neighbors by the house. Roughly 15 would be a good estimate.

There was a buit-in safe in the wall in the den on the first floor, but that was removed by the previous owner. All valuables are kept hidden elsewhere in the house.

In the event of an intruder where lethal force would be needed (and NY is a duty to retreat state so I can't just go blasting), my wife and kids would hide in our bedroom. If the individual comes up the stairs, I don't have to leave my bedroom to have a clean shot from the head to the chest.

I have multiple vantage points and options to pick from if needed, even go so far as to lie prone under my bed in the foot of space.

If things were perfect, I'd use the basement. But anyone who breaks in would be near that entrance

Well you live in New York so your options are going to be limited. A Mossberg 500 with a 18.5 inch barrel would probably be ideal. If you want to go the pistol route a Glock 19, Ruger SR9C, S&W Shield. If you want a revolver go with a S&W in .357 magnum such as a Model 686. That way you can also shoot .38 Special out of it. The main thing is once you get a gun you need to familiarize yourself with it. Take it out shooting and get use to it.
