  Nope.  There are single shot pistols...and I can personally attest that the Contender is fun to shoot.  I've shot skeet with a .410 Contender.     Most, I would imagine, are .22 target pistols but they exist.  But Thompson makes a .30-06 Encore Pistol which is this side of insanity.  Use a proper grip or expect a divot in your forehead.   Anyway, I digress...I'm still of the opinion that any effective gun control law (like say the Australian model) will be met with many...
Only if you are an arrogant ass that buys product once a year right after it launches and has to update every time something new comes out.For everyone else a mid year spec bump is a nice improvement for when they choose to buy a new device for themselves or as a gift for others.If Apple chooses to start doing this great. If not, no big deal given a fall release cycle to cover XMas.
  Given that the iPad 3 was a compromise fixed within normal yearly product cycle there's no real reason to believe that the iPac Mini 2 could not also address some shortcomings with the current device.     A 32nm A5X is certainly within the realm of possibility by spring. A more efficient display panel is certainly within the real of possibility by spring   Given both then an iPad Mini retina is also within the realm of possibility by spring/summer.  They launched the...
  CPU architecture, while being an important consideration, is not the only thing that can be improved.  Processor speed, RAM, Flash, GPU, displays, etc can as well.  At the expense of margin, Apple can improve to a twice a year cycle.  Just as with Macs a mid year spec bump is more than possible given that Apple, unlike their competitors, do not drop prices as component prices decrease.   The question is whether that expense will be large and if Apple is actually willing...
  Or    Jan 18, 20?? I tried to purchase a firearm and they don't sell them anymore without a mandatory waiting period, doctors screening, training and even for 1 shot rifles, 2 shot shotguns. Jan 19, 20?? I tried to make poison gas/bomb/etc and killed myself/got caught/lost interest/etc   Harris and Diebold made pipe and propane bombs most of which failed to go off.  Even terrorists have had failures to go bang.  It's a lot harder than buying an AR or semi-auto pistol,...
  Any semi-auto or fully auto firearm shooting an intermediate cartridge (7.62x39mm (AKs), 5.56 mm NATO, .223 Remington) with a detachable external magazine.   Frankly, just limit the sales of intermediate cartridge ammo to tightly regulated licensed ranges where the ammo has to be used on premises, eliminate production of new weapons and institute a buy back program and that solves much of the problem with "assault weapons" and mass shootings.   Just live with the fact...
  Our Suez Crisis has not yet happened and the death of Pax Americana is not yet at hand.       Whenever the action as been worked and a bullet actually chambered you have "one in the chamber' and the gun can fire if the safety is disengaged.  Having a round chambered puts you at a higher state of readiness to fire:   Condition 0: round in chamber, hammer cocked, safety Off, loaded magazine Condition 1: round in chamber, hammer cocked, safety On, loaded magazine Condition...
  Well, sorta.  .223 semi-autos are more lethal than their .22LR counterparts and are lighter, carry more rounds (typically) and generate less recoil than their higher caliber counterparts. The assault rifle design is optimized for combat.  There is a reason that LE uses the AR-15 and it's not (just) because it looks more cool than a hunting rifle.
  He's not engaging...he's making a value judgement regarding that crazy american woman and her guns based on the crap written in the Daily Mail as well as stating that it is irrational for americans to own anything but handguns...which is an idiotic statement in itself.   So seriously, he and other folks who want to judge us can bugger off.
  The Daily Mail?  Really?  I think they reported that she consorted with aliens too.   http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2220103/Man-photographs-UFO-dead-birds-appear-neighbours-garden.html   http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2219690/Familys-terror-UFO-hovers-rural-home-hours.html   http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2184586/Roswell-incident-There-TWO-UFO-crashes-Roswell-says-Air-Force-official.html   No shit there are two search pages full of articles...
