    Truedat, but the number of aracnoids willing to work is down, and just try finding a cocoon unwinder worthy of employment.
    Another industry ruined by WELFARE.

The world is sick and there is just only so much you can do to be a good guy and hope to get through it.

    I hear that in Canada that if you shoot the man that broke into your home to rape you, that it's pretty much proof to be used against you that your firearm wasn't locked up far enough away from you to be legally stored. Okay, maybe not that bad....
    A guy broke into our house one early morning and I held him with my shotgun down on the floor until the police arrived and removed him from our home, One of the cops asked why I didn't kick and rough him up, I told him I was afraid of being sued.

Today life is cheap is what the problem is, and murders don't get the electric chair anymore. Cell phones' parents buy for their kids are more dangerous for them than a gun which is stored away properly is.

    That's a clever saying Ryan, accurate too.

    I like guns, to me they are mechanical pieces of art. I keep my guns locked up in an expensive gun case, I couldn't live with myself if one of my guns were stolen and it was used to take an innocent man's life, I think I'm right when I say most gun owners feel the same way.

    I imagine it looks like a sewer pipe from the business end.

    Well, the silk wasn't stopping the bullet, but just not letting the bullet go through it. The bullet was wrapping itself into the silk, taking it with it into the tissue. In the case of the weaker bullet, pulling the silk pulled the bullet back out of the now much more survivable wound. In the case of the .475 Linebaugh, assuming the silk could still stay together, the bullet would take the silk with it completely through the body, and probably through the block wall behind it, too.

    The guys in plumbing shop at the beer foundry had 3 days of entertainment watching Enginincompoops fling everything from hardware to hunks of broken beer bottles at a few prototype safety curtains. Generation 1 was a 5x6 hunk of burlap from a hops bail wrapper.

    Das Austrian Engineer who bellowed across the shop "Prove it" when I said a curtain had STOP power and the idiot who designed the oscillating warehouse cut their fingers to s#!t slingshotting glass. While they did I cut side deals with a short run shop to construct frames and an awning shop to sew a rod pocket across the top. After all there was a second beer foundry in town, and a baby food factory, and a sauce factory all with exploding bottles. The world was a profitable place before OSHA when Insurance carriers set standards.
    We even had Ruby Process to build water slide decals saying anything you desired.
