    Well, I'm sure it's easier to reload than .25ACP.

    I'm not trying to be snide, but I sincerely hope that our NRA can protect us from the gun grabbers better than your NRA was able to on the main island. I don't know the entire story, but what happened in Great Britain was inexcusable.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    Well, I hope OUR NRA can protect US! I didn't re-up and won't until they get rid of Wayne Lapierre. He's a cancer on the NRA IMHO.

    Can't really answer that question. I will say I think the most popular round
    in the U.S. is the .22LR. Just a guess.

    As to the metric vs. Imperial discussion let me ask this..

    What sounds better - 400 cu. big block or 6.6 Liter???????

    Considering that all evidence points to the current chairmen of the NRA being greedy, self-interested charlatans who talk out of both sides of their mouth in attempt to play both sides in order to remain relevant and profitable, I wouldn't count on our NRA to be much better than that of Great Britain in the long run.

    The NRA needs to be restructured as a strictly non-profit organization in which no acting memebers receive anything of substantial monetary value, otherwise it will always be run by folks who use it to profit from fear and intentionally giving away our rights just to turn around and claim that if you pledge more money to the organization then they'll be able to prevent such things from occurring again. We need an NRA run by blue collar, working class citizens acting solely out of interest in preserving our constitutional second amendment rights, not a bunch of sleazy business men who clearly don't stand firmly against the infringement of our rights and will compromise for the sake of profit.

    That might sound good but how many blue collar workers can run a multi-billion dollar business? How many know the laws regarding charitable organizations of that size? I get what you're saying, A grassroots movement is much more preferable than a multibillion dollar mega corporation, or that the latter has forgotten it's true purpose. This is where elections of the BOD's needs to see real change and it's not. This is also why I left the NRA and I'm currently a member of GOA and donate to SAF.

    How could anyone not want a big bore revolver. No question mark because it's a statement. If big bores were available, I'm sure the Europeans would love them as much as we do. Maybe not though. Their little European wrists might not be built for the recoil.

    ps Manx Tom, I do not consider the Isle of Man, England, Scotland, Wales, etc. to be European.
