Prayers for the victims of this recent shooting. All three students (includes the shooter) are in critical condition. This could have been a repeat of the most recent school shooting in Florida if it weren't for one thing ... this time a school resource officer actually stepped up and risked his life to save countless lives. I have not heard what kind of weapon the shooter had or any motives but we do know that a good guy with a gun was able to stop this one instead of the rest of the kids sitting there like fish in a barrel. Thank you to all of our LEO, School Resource Officers, First Responders and Teachers who are willing to risk their personal safety to keep these kids safe. Also, Maryland has some pretty strict gun laws already but people with bad intentions will always find a way. We don't have a gun problem, we have a mental health problem.
50 BMG / 12.7x99mm Salvo Squeezebore Type 6 experimental
Manufactured by Lake City M.O. USA 1955 (Multi projectile with plastic Sabot)
The experimental Project SALVO is a complicated and yet interesting topic, however it is difficult to try and explain to great detail in an Instagram post.
If you are interested I suggest reading up on the SALVO project, it’s cool nerdy gun stuff.
Basically squeeze bore is a bore that tapers into a smaller size down the length on the barrel. In this case, the bore for this round would start at .50 Caliber/12.7mm and taper down to .30 caliber/7.62mm. There were several types of 50 BMG SSB rounds tested, this particular one is the type 6.
Salvo Squeeze Bore (SSB) is a system designed to increase hit probability and/or target saturation. This objective is attained through firing a number of projectiles with each shot through a barrel of special squeeze design. The projectiles are nested in tandem array in a conventional cartridge case and separate as they pass through the barrel.
The .50/.30 cartridges were used in modified M2 machine guns and boasted a firing rate of 3,000 projectiles per minute, based on the normal 600 rounds per minute cyclic rate. The cartridges loaded five projectiles from 132gr to 138gr depending on design. The muzzle velocities for the projectiles were 3000, 2800, 2600, 2400, and 2200 fps. #ammunition#2A#weapon#machineguns#50BMG#3gun#history#gunporn#sickguns#roundoftheday#bestgunsdaily#gunrange#bossguns#gunsandammo#pewpew#USA#military#army#specialforces#History#gunpictures#bullets#handgun#gunlifestyle#collecting#ww2#sqeeuzebore#postwar
My first big 3 gun match for the year is done and over. I’m happy to say I was able to secure a top 5 finish in TacOps against some very strong competition! The Missouri 3 Gun championship had a good mix of natural terrain stages and tactical bay stages which made for a overall fun match. Thank you to my industry partners @hlammunition, @2a_armament, @hayescustomguns, and @copperheadcreekshootingclub, with y’alls help I am able to preform at a top level. Thank you to all the industry supporters of the match @vortexoptics, @tbac_suppressors, @sierra_bullets, @gruntstyle, @hiperfiretriggers, @jprifles, @taccom3g and anyone else I might have missed! And last but not least congratulations to @jake.latola.3g for his winning performance this weekend!
So the 2018 Missouri 3 Gun Championship is in the books. This was a great, fun little stage from the match where you had 33 seconds to get as many targets down as you could. I really want to shoot it again. Glad to see my pistol practice over the winter has paid off, now I see room for improvement elsewhere. I’ll share some more footage from the match later on. @obsidianarms #3gun#majormatch#firstoftheyear#getsome#3gunlife#3gunshow#hiperfire
Big thanks to those that support the sport and those that supported this match! It was a very technical and tough match.
My new holster for 3 gun. It really took me no time to get use to it. With the adjustable tenson knobs I have no fear of this thing flying out of my holster in a drag race style match. Pick your favorite or crazy color combo out @redhilltactical .
It’s almost time to make ready! But we still have some awesome sponsors to announce! Today we would like to welcome @leadstararms to the team! As pictured you can tell they are making some very radical rifles and rifle accessories! Please head on over to www.leadstararms.com and check out their complete product line.
3rd stage from last weekend. Short classifier like stage. Went pretty well accept i missed a clay and didn't load enough ammo for a make up shot. 🤦♂️The missed clay and time spent processing why my gun was dry put me at 13th on this stage. Probably my weakest stage of the weekend. Pistol was strong and Im happy with that. #gamersgonnagame#shredderlife#3gun#3gunlife#3gunnation#3gunner#ohiomultigunleague @stoeger_usa @rubber_city_armory @rubbercityarmory @shredder_industries @andersonmanufacturing @sigsaueroptics
I practice and practice all week only to throw a dud performance on match day. Losing the dot twice, trigger freeze, forgetting my stage plan (running towards ports I didn’t have to and forgetting to shoot targets🤮 all together). But most of all I wasn’t seeing targets quickly. I love this sport but it drives me nuts!!!!!! On a positive note it was a great tuneup for #smm3g thank you to @rudvnt @stimatthew and the rest of the #ohshoot squad for letting me hang out. I learned a lot. I’m observant 😁#uspsa#opengun#workinprogress#lululemon#2a#competitiveshooting#3gun#maximumeffort
I’d like to take a second and give props to my first sponsor, my family. My Mom, Dad, and brother chipped in to get me these sweet Taran Tactical baseplates for my birthday so I don’t have to spend as much time reloading. You guys rock! #family#3gun#pistolgameupgrade#murica 🇺🇸
Super fun fast stage. Love these types of stages where you can set up and shoot coming onto positions. Being ready will really help reduce lost time. Get your gun up and get on that that trigger. Still a bunch of Charlie’s but a decent hit factor compared to the rest of the pack. #gofastordie
