Yup!

It's got a regular polymer stock.

Here's the thread.

Apparently either an instructor worked the action without checking it or a casual person at the booth did and someone pulled the trigger. It was friggin loud in there and the bullet went thru the ceiling, and lodged in the ceiling of the 2nd floor above the convention center. It is still under debate when this comes up whether someone did this on purpose when they noticed the loaded mag in the stock, or if it was all just a mistake. My question is how would someone not notice a loaded mag and slip it in a rifle in a convention center? I think they did it intentionally so this might happen. I heard it was Col. Cooper who pulled the trigger but since I didn't see who did it I am not sure.
Not a lot of cold, hard, facts there

Was Col. Cooper one of those "As I say, not as I do" kinda guys?

Shot my Marlin 1894 for the first time the other day. After a couple of test shots I shot these two 5-shot groups from a benchrest. 25 yards, handloaded 250 gr Hornady XTP bullets, Universal powder.



The 250 gr XTP's worked nicely. I also had some handloaded 230 gr lead ammo and some 225 gr lead factory loaded ammo. Neither of those loads would cycle through the gun very well so I didn't shoot them. When I got home I examined those bullets and it turned out they were hanging up on the case mouth when they entered the chamber. I ran all of them through a Lee factory crimp die to put a little more crimp on them and now they cycle perfectly in the gun.

Like what, a dead body? I was standing about ten feet away when it happened, however, I don't know who pulled the trigger although, I did see who was holding the weapon a second after it went off........

No, but near the end of his life he made many famous Gunsite range mistakes. I was at a class when he swept the class with the muzzle of a loaded 1911 three times in a row. Everyone ducked. I had to destroy the tape in the camera we were shooting the class with.

That's a shame. I suppose it's a lot like old people driving.

When does it stop being small arms and become ordnance? That's gotta be close.

Thought anything over .5" bore is classified as a destructive device?

But that doesn't explain the .585 Nyati?

Is it smooth bore?

Doesn't that make it ok?

"As its name implies, rifles chambered for the cartridge have a bore diameter of 0.950", which would normally classify them as Destructive Devices under the 1968 (1934) National Firearms Act. However, SSK sought and received a "Sporting Use Exception" to de-regulate the rifles, meaning they can be purchased like any other Title I rifle by a person over age 18 with no felonious criminal record"

So I need to come up with a "sporting use" for a howitzer?
