Some AR-10 platforms are chambered for .500 Auto Max, .50 Krater, and .510 Winchester Short Magnum.
You are talking about a rifle setup that is about as common as a Bugatti Veyron. No she was not talking about the Beowulf, she probably does not even know it exists. Virtually every AR15 out there is the one using a standard NATO 5.56 round. It also weighs a bit over 7lbs fully loaded. Unless 10 moving boxes is some sort of weight scale she just devised up, I would say she is full of shit on both counts.

That was more a bit of firearms trivia, please don't misconstrue that as defense of that idiot Jackson-Lee.

That was my point re: the "10 boxes" comment. 10 boxes of nearly anything would weigh more than an AR variant rifle. Simmer down, Delta, I agree with you on this one.

I can similarly buy an Ar-15 chambered in .22LR



No, I wouldn't, but I could. In fact, "I can go down the road any time I want and walk into Harry's and hold my head up high, and say in a loud steady voice: 'Harry I want you to sell me a condom. In fact, today I think I'll have a French Tickler"

candidates just released their third quarter campaign fundraising numbers and Bernie leads the dems with about 25m for the quarter. Not bad Bernie but too bad Trump came in with 125m!
Not to mention it’s very likely Bern is done, just released he had heart surgery yesterday after experiencing pain during his recent event. Time to put aside your dream of a socialist USA run by you and relax old man in one of your several Dacha’s.

My take on last nights debate:

Yang: moved & talked like a robot from Disneyland circa 1980.
UBI and decriminalizing opioids, and comparing Russian meddling with
US policy...............all big misses

Gabbard: regime change, regime change, regime change, regime change,
ad nauseum. That might be accurate for Iraq, but not Syria.
Big Miss!

Steyer: I wanted to impeach Trump in 2016. Looks like death warmed over.
Big miss

Beto: I want to take your AR 15's and AK 47s. I just don't know how. But he
told it like it was to Warren "You seem puntitive". I did like that.
Big Miss.

Harris: BLah blah blah, blah, executive order on assualt rifles.
Miss

Booker: Actually had a decent debate. That's the first time I've seen him
appear personable. Still not a fan.

Bernie: We need a revolution. And we will raise taxes to do it. At least he's
honest about it. Big Miss!!!!!

Warren: We need free this, we need free that, I will not tell you how we will
pay for it. TAX THE RICH!!!! Big Miss!!!

Biden: Stumbled a lot, but had a lot of good points. Don't forget, he has
always stumbled a lot. I thought he had a good debate, taking it to
the socialists. Grade B

Klobachar: Much more aggressive, also taking it to the socialists. I liked her
story about McCain. Grade B+

Buttigieg: Aggressive and smart. Had some real good pivots. And the thing I
really liked was that he didn't neccesarily have an answer for
everything. Seems pragmatic. Grade A

They ought to reduce to field down to six: Warren, Biden, Buttigieg, Harris, Booker, and Bernie. I would replace Bernie with Klobachar but she doesn't have enough poll numbers, but I'd keep her on the bench in case Bernie suffers another heart attack or he'll get finished off by AOC lols.

The rest should just quit if they got any sense left.

So apparently, Pelosi walked out of a meeting on Syria today with Trump because he called her a 3rd rate politician and a supporter of communists.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/pel...ting-storm-out

Look - Trump has one of the most off putting personalities I've ever seen - but come now, little Nancy - it isn't like he just started hurling insults without provocation.

Some quotes from Nancy Pelosi on Trump over the last 2 years:

"Maybe he thinks if government’s shut down, he can golf more comfortably. That’s not how it works."

"It’s like a manhood thing for him. As if manhood could ever be associated with him. He may not even have a manhood"

“I was trying to be the mom. But it goes to show you – you get into a tinkle contest with a skunk, you get tinkle all over you. And make no mistake, he is a skunk."

"He's not intellectually fit to be President."
