    Brady and officer Delahanty were shot with a Rohm .22lr revolver

    Ironically about the furthest you can get from an assault weapon.

    The problem of course wasn't the Rohm - this was the problem.

    Here is what the 2011 Standard Catalog of FIREARMS has to say about the Rohm:

    "They are of low quality and little collector interest. Junk, with virtually no value."

    I might add that John Warnock Hinckley Jr. is also of low quality and of little interest. He is junk, with virtually no value.
     
  4. Lol at the guy holding the uzi in the last pic! Bwhahahahahahahaha!

    May he rest in piece. Hinkley, on the other hand, can just rot.

    Unfortunately, the psychiatrists in charge of Hinckley's care have been allowing him more, and longer unsupervised stays with his mother in Virginia as time goes by in the belief that his mental issue has gone away...

    Idiots!

    Hinckley is playing them.

    Imo.

    Reagan was also hit by the Rhom (a ricochet off the limo door). It came pretty close to killing him. He was in bad shape by the time he walked into the ER, actually collapsing just before they got him on a gurney.

    Two items of note: the .22LR rounds used were "Devastators" - HP rounds that had an explosive mixture* added to them for greater damage;

    And, second, Brady was pretty 'pro-gun' before the shooting. He even owned several machine guns.

    * I believe it was mercury fulminate.

    Yup, the one that hit Reagan had already detonated as it hit the car first, then ricocheted into his arm and chest.

  14. :confused: Were these outlawed? They sound awesome. Obviously not to murder people with. But would make your 22 or 22mag that much better for varmints.
     
  15. That is not a DC guard. According to a relatively recent documentary on that event, it was one of the few times the Secrete Service are seen in public with displaying a firearm.
     
  16. I was wondering how he concealed that. But going back and looking at the fourth picture. you can see a hard brief case on the ground open, with foam cut outs.

    I vaguely reading that he carries it under his jacket, but could be wrong.

  19. If he carried it under his jacket. I wonder what the briefcase had in it. Or another service member had it.

    When I wake up this evening (on night shift right now) I'll nip that case and try to blow it up.
    In the mean time. Good night! err day?
