Re: Bulged Barrel?
Mud can do it and does. A bulged barrel will still fire a bullet. And some do it quite accurately I had a .357 that i bulged and shot for a month before I noticed, and only noticed while I was cleaning it. Only reason it stopped the weapon in Ryans case is because it was bad enough to lock the slide. Had it not bulged enough to stop the slide from operating id wager hed still be shootig today and not know his barrel was bulged.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
