I just posted something on the "SuperVel"" 38cal rounds that we fired once in training. I found a short article about this ammo & figured I'd post it. (the SuperVel practicaly took our hands off when we fired it!):



New Federal Expanding Full Metal Jacket
By Shep Kelly
In 1973 when I entered law enforcement, the newest, most controversial, bullet was Lee Jurras' SuperVel hollow and soft points for the .38SPL/357MAG, 9mm, .380 and .45 ACP. Lighter in weight than standard bullet weights, and at a much higher velocity, the theory behind the SuperVel said that increased expansion from the higher velocity translated into tissue destruction, which produced better incapacitation with less danger of excessive penetration. And for the next 27 years, virtually every bullet from every manufacturer was a variation on the same theme--hollowpoints were THE law enforcement bullet designs. The ammunition industry, at the urging of the law enforcement community, made bigger, smaller, soft/hollow, higher velocity, subsonic, plated, unplated, serrated jacket hollowpoints. Now familiar names such as Gold Dot, Hydra Shok, Silvertip, Black Talon, XTP, Tactical, Golden Sabre and so on, emerged from the marketing departments of the ammunition manufacturers, big and small. And each of these designs was heralded as an improvement over what had come before, and in many cases, were.

Haven't visited this topic in a while.
Question for fellow handgun owners:
Does anyone else conceal or regularly carry a gun in the car?
(I built a secret compartment into my Honda where I always have my S&W 9mm & a spare mag handy....if you've ever seen the movie "Dog Day Afternoon" (with Al Pacino) it's a similar concept to where the FBI had a hidden gun in the car when they drove the bankrobbers away, but not in the same place)
I have a 12 guage Reminton in the house so, since I am unwilling any more to go through the hastle of always carrying, I figured it would be the most likely place I would ever need a handgun.

Oh, a TC, got one of those. 222,30/30,357,44mag,45 long colt, 45/410, could be forgetting something. Drove the 357 over 2000fps with my Ohler 35p, with very light bullets out of that,couldn't hit anything but they were moving. If you are local and heard of Zambors, they had a closeout on barrels way back when they went out of business, got some good deals.Want something that goes pow, look up loading data on TC and Ruger Blackhawk ONLY, for 45 long colt, more gusto than 44 mag. Actually got rid of 4 or 5 5gal pails of lead to the junkyard recently. Price is way up there. Don't have the time to cast anymore.

My father had us shooting his 12 ga. shotgun when we were shorter than it was. My bruised shoulder caused me to dislike long arms and at a young age, I was shooting pistols. My first pistol was a sawed off .22 rifle, stock and barrel. I carried it openly in my cowboy holster until I was about 17 (not too often).

My next pistol was a Model 41 S&W. By the time I got to boot camp, I was in a pistol league and pretty good with a pistol, but I couldn't hit the broadside of a barndoor with the 1911 .45 Nowadays, I have a nice collection of various model pistols.

My prized gun is my great grandfather's Damascus twist Parker, 12 gauge. It's in super condition and I have a picture of him posing in front of the barn with it from about 1900 when he was about 20.

I know a fellow who had a gun like that also. It was a bolt action .22, single shot i believe, with the stock cut off behind the pistol grip and rounded off nicely to fit the hand and the barrel and forearm shortened accordingly. I thought of it as a novelty, I don't know how easy it was to shoot or how well it shot, I think it was a barn gun for rats and snakes and mostly shot dust shot through it.

You're right. It was a bolt action. And I did use it for rats.

Here's a picture of the gun and my greatgrandfather holding it on the right.

Nice family treasure you got there stoker-man. The Parker alone is wonderful but to know it was your Grandfather's and have a picture of him holding it like that makes it priceless.
