So true.

A few years ago the term Weapon of Mass Destruction, had a legal and international policy meaning.

Weapons so horrifying and indiscriminate in their effect that they were either banned by all nations ( except Soviet and Chinese evil Empires ) or the subject of serious effort to prevent their use.

The U.S. policy until Barry was "a germ is a gas is a nuke". Mutually Assured Destruction applies. You release anthrax or poison gas on Anyone and we retaliate by turning your palace to glass. We will respond in kind. And since the US has renounced and destroyed all stock piles of gas and germs, we'll use hydrogen fracking bombs to stop you. Period fracking dot. Don't even think about it.

Barry canceled that. And now we have poison gas victims besides the U.S. troops and Iraqi civilians poisoned by "accidental" releases of Saddam's poison gas shells. ( accidental because the poison gas shell, having had it's label removed to hide it among normal artillery shells by Saddam's officers, was used as an IED by AQ who thought it was explosive, or released by allied troops who were demolishing stock piles of Iraqi shells that had poison gas hidden among them. The accident nature of the exposure doesn't make you less crippled or dead. )

Then the idiot journalists starting calling car bombs WMDs. They aren't. Not even the 757s used on 9/11 were WMDs. Just car bombs and suicide planes.

Now your .22 is a WMD?

That is literally insane.

So-called liberals live in an alternate reality where government is compassion, welfare is empathy, and rights are government programs and subsidies. The mere mention of such shuts down any conversation immediately, with suggestions that one gets "educated" (I.E. indoctrinated) followed by the usual charges of being a hateful racist bigoted misogynistic Russian fascist Nazi white supremacist.

If that wasn't so long, it'd make a Great bumper sticker, Rick.

Zac, One of these may work for you.

On a lighter note, the November 2017 issue of Guns magazine has 3 articles on obscure calibers, and 2 are favorites of mine.

the .280 Ackley Improved is a 30-06 spinoff, that Remington somewhat neutered with it's initial offering of a loading that was intended for their pump action & semi-auto hunting rifles. This relative of the .270 Winchester "coulda been a contender" but never really caught on except with the gun geeks. The Ackley Improved version has a sharper shoulder, more case capacity, and has the ballistics of a 7mm Remington Magnum without the Magnum's reduced magazine capacity and recoil. Today, the original factory loading is probably more rare than the hot rod version, when it comes to rifles actually in stores and ammo on the shelf, so the .280 A.I. is weirdly just as viable a choice today. And since it's a cult caliber, it's chambered in some really nice guns, but sporadically. If I could find one of the rare Ruger #1s in that chambering, I'd have to buy it just for geek cred.

The other "didn't get popular" cartridge is the .41 Magnum. This was marketed originally for police, as a more powerful weapon than a .357 magnum, but with less kick than the .44 Remington magnum, which is, despite it's movie fame, a much better hunting cartridge than defensive arm. ( not that it won't do the job, It will, Just fine, but then it will go on to kill the neighbor's Prius. )

The trouble was, the .41 was also marketed as a hunting caliber, with less recoil and a flatter trajectory than a .44, all true. But with limited sales, the lighter police loading went out of production, leaving the high power loading the only non-handloading choice, and that was too powerful for police use, and it then devolved into a cult caliber, and shows up sporadically chambered in Rugers and S&Ws usually as a distributor's only model. I've tried a .41 magnum, and it's everything it's supposed to be, the .019" diameter difference in bullets is really too small for any target to notice, and it's hoots darn flat for a hammer suitable for Bear. The odds on finding ammo at Gander Mountain are slim, though so it's going to stay a Cult Classic.

The third cartridge, one I'd never tried, is the Colt .44. I didn't notice that there are Cowboy era guns out there that allow shooting the .44 colt/.44 Russian ( same but a little longer ) and .44 S&W special ( longer still ) Or just one or two of the combinations depending on action length. Any of the variations, especially the .44 Special, are more than adequate for self defense, and good enough for deer. The reproduction .44 Russian pistols out now offer a quirky self defense carry option in a break action revolver, that is safe, more than powerful enough, and weird enough that just pulling one out should make a semi-sane mugger, decide he doesn't want to mess with a steampunk Airship Crewman type in the real world.

Those Schofields are massive guns. I'd take a plain Jane 1917 over one anyday.

I've had and shot some .41 magnums over the years. Probably one of the finest wheel gun calibers ever made. All of them printed well and remained all day shoot able. I have nothing but good to say about them. Only complaint is in the lack of ammo on the shelves.
