Man I see LA got some guerilla warfare artillery. In Minneapolis the most common gun of choice is the 45. easy,to carry and pacs a punch. 44mags and the 40 glocs have become real popular lately too. 12 gauges have always been a big bang theory. As far as assault rifles some ni66as do use tec 9s or 22s. Mac 10s and 11s and Uzis are rare as hell. Its to hard to roll with AKs up here but ni66as do have em the biggest chopper ive probaly seen was a Mak 90 that the Native Mobs had with a 90 round drum fully auto. But handguns always have and probaly always will be the heats of choice.

Whitekid,
Anything that works...LOL. From zipguns to automatics...whatever works to get the job done. If there was a move or action to remove illegal guns from the streets, there would be a lot less bloodshed. I can't imagine too many cats still gangbanging if there were no guns or a limited number of guns in the neighborhood. Gunslinging made even the sorriest homie out there able to stand toe to toe with the hardcore g's. Any fool can pull a trigger.

BDL, absolutely right about that.

You know I read the Mafia likes the .22 the best. One in the brain and it bounces around in there. The idea is there's no fixing that in the emergency room.

When I was younger, after getting my honorable discharge, we used to go out shooting all the time in the desert. My friends had a lot of guns but they were all legal and we took care with them. M1, WWII Sniper Rifles, 12 guage, .45 auto, and .38 revolver were my favorites.

wcrockets,
Absolutely, the small caliber .22's and .25's are more lethal at times than the bigger calibers. They don't have enough force to just penetrate skin and bone, they end up bouncing off bone and zig zagging through you body. Everyone I knew who got shot with a 22 or 25 either died or is a vegetable. Most of the homies that got plugged with bigger calibers are walking tall, the slugs went completely through their bodies.

only 5% - 9% of gang shootings use automatic assault rifles per year. That means the weapon of choice is the hand gun, and the shooting that killed the most people in 1996 was the 380 (LA COunty). My guess is that this is the same for each year but not sure.

A .45 can kill you if you get shot in the shoulder, arm, and even the thigh. I believe that the .45 does the most damage of available handguns. In the chest with a .45 you can forget it.

There are so many possible way to survive a .22 and .25, even taking one in the chest, and it definitely wont kill you if it hit you thigh or leg area, and to make a .22 0r .25 fatal, you have to be at the right distance and be very accurate.


You dont need that much precision with a .380, 9mm, .357 and ofcourse a .45.

Yeah, the .45 auto is real popular for it's stopping power.

I found this on another message board: During the Philippine "Insurrection", officers in the field found the new .38 caliber double actions lacking in stopping power. The story goes that the Moro warriors would wrap their arms and legs with vines to serve as tourniquets and get "high" on chewing some sort of leaf and would charge head on into battle. The .38s were ineffective against this tactic. As a response to the officers and men in the field demanding their "old" .45 caliber weapons back, the Government and Colt Firearms sent a shipment of 500 refurbished Colt Single Action revolvers directly to the Philippines in 1901. In 1902, 4600 guns of .45 CALIBER, DOUBLE ACTION, were sent to the Philippines to arm the Constabulary. These guns were based on the 1878 Colt the design with some modification to the trigger size and are referred to as the Philippine Model. In 1909 Colt sold the Army a .45 caliber revolver of their "New Service Model" design which used the same .45 S&W cartridge as the old Schofields and Single Action Armies. The .45 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol) went into service with Models of 1900, 1902 etc and then the one we all know, the .45 Government Model of 1911. In 1917 the Army again purchased revolvers from Colt and S&W that could also use the .45 ACP cartridge. The .45 ACP Government Model has had a long life and millions were manufactured through WWII. I think they were still in use in Korea and probably Vietnam too. When it comes to combat a lot of soldiers prefer the .45.

Still BDL is right about those small caliber bullets bouncing around ripping stuff up.

I wasn't around when it happened but I remember oh about 15 years ago this tweaker Logan up in the high desert recounting to us how he was sitting in some lady's living room watching television when her jealous boyfriend comes in. The idiot (ie jealous boyfriend) wasn't much of a communicator apparently and never taken a day of counseling in his life because he just puts one in her head and she's gone. Logan charges the guy and takes one in the wrist area that bounces all the way up his arm and comes out his shoulder! Unbelievable but he did have some big arms.

By then Logan was close and they fought for the pistol. (I think Logan said it was a .25 pistol). The guy wrenched it away and fled in his car to County Line (ie. Calimesa). The story goes he was calmly drinking a beer when the police picked him up. What a freak!

Anyways, I heard he was convicted and sent up (hopefully forever) and the tweaker Logan was touted as hero in the High Desert Star.

Logan made sure to stroll around town showing everyone his battle wounds with a copy of him on the front page as the local hero all the while trying to get "loans" so he could go tweak.

Talk about Pulp Fiction come to life. I couldn't make this up if I tried.

WC,
Yes, that is part of the history for the .45, they couldn't stop those crazy pinoys. That's a funny ass story about the tweaker, but sounds right on point. Tweakfreaks...too many out here it's ridiculous. Wait till these cats hit 10 yrs down the road, talk about mental problems...woo. Smaller caliber weapons are so inaccurate, you'd have to be real close or lucky to get at somebody with some results. I'd say a lotta shooters don't have any skills, they need the bigger caliber bigger capacity clips to hit their targets. OH, I'm not condoning shooting someone like a dog either. I've had homies survive 6-9 slugs point blank, with 9mm, .38s...they end up with calostomy bags and everything, that's nasty! They just got lucky, because if they were hit in their vitals, they'd be dead. One homie took a slug, it went right through his neck one side and out the other, luckily no nerve damage. A homegirl took a slug from the back of her neck, exiting her mouth/cheek.

Indeed! Short of WWII battle field situations, that's as heavy as it can be brought BDL. You a man whose just about seen it all bro.

As for the tweakers, tragic. Meth is the white man's heroin bro. I enjoy very much meeting people from that background at church that turned their lives around. They always have that "I can't believe things are so good now" look on their face.

WC,
Meth overtook crack addiction from the 80's. It's just not whites abusing that stuff. A gang of Pinoys, Latinos, other Asians, are heavily involved in trafficking, manufacturing, and abusing that stuff. I have yet to see some homies turn their lives around it yet.

Nah, I'm learning everyday from everyone I rap to.

I got a long real well with the Filipinos in the military. Some of the nicest people I have ever met. My bunkmate was a real cool homie.

Haha but I remember one of them pulled this white crane thing on a big white bully from Texas once.

This big powerful Texan, he also said he had done a year in prison for something but then been cleared and released, had a bad habit of going up behind people and grabbing them in a bear hug and just squeezing them until the fight was all out of them and dropping them on the ground. It was a big joke until he tried it to this 160lb Filipino guy in front of me one day. Right after the bear hug was applied he did some move where he exhaled as he pushed up and brought his foot up hard on the guys sack.

The Texan went down like a bag of potatoes and rolled around in agony for about five minutes. It was quite a show. HAHA!

I truly hope you get to see that BDL. I was with a gang of people last night that have been changed and it's all really good. They from all over the city originally. Changed people. They put in work at being good parents, developing good relationships, learning how to succeed legit and enjoying life as healthy people. They are the real winners in my opinion.
