Coffee is brewed

Congratulation Glen and Rita

Nice looking pistol
What is the difference in new police cartridges?

I am confused on this one- I was always understanding the Colt New Police was in .32 Np. It could chamber .32 colt but was not recommended. Then the Police positive changes are confusing as well.

Morning y'all.
Coffee is ready.

I shoot that one .... came with this service Holster dated 1928 ...
I figured you did.

Somewhere I have a bunch of .38 NP ammo that was given to me, I should find a gun to shoot it up with.
You should.

'Tis 50 and sunny. High of 70.

Here is the difference

Left - 38 Colt short New Police   Bullet diameter .358 inches  modern loads

 Center - 38 S&W - Bullet diameter   .361 in   

  Right- 38 special (reload)     Bullet diameter  .357-8

The four horsemen of glumness are tiredness, boredom, rain and low blood-sugar level.
 Any one can lead to minor glumness; all four together can lead to old cranky Bastard Syndrome.

In my case, its been raining all day, I was bored so I took a nap, and skipped lunch  :-X

UH- OH !

The .38 Colt New Police is the same cartridge as a .38 S&W with the exception of having a flat nose bullet. Colt didn't want to put .38 S&W as the caliber marking on their pistols, so they came up with the .38NP loading.

Brits called it the 38-200 because they used a 200 gr lead bullet in their Enfields till the Germans pulled Hauge rules on them in WWII and they went to a 150 gr FMJ.   If I remember right the original BP loads were 200 gr and they went to 150-160 with smokeless for the most part.

I read somewhere that the jacketed bullet the Brits used was around 178 grains.

So the people using Mustard Gas were complaining about a lead bullet at what, 600 or 650 fps?

Another was the shotgun the Doughboys brought in 1918.  The Germans complained too horrific for use during WW1 .


Ironically , they  were first to use , * poisonous gas * 

* France was the first to actually use Gas , but it was nonlethal Tear Gas.

Gleaned from the internet

" In September 1918, the German government issued a diplomatic protest, complaining that the Model 97 Trench Gun was illegal because “it is especially forbidden to employ arms, projections, or materials calculated to cause unnecessary suffering” as defined in the 1907 Hague Convention respecting the Laws and Customs of War on Land.
When the Americans rejected this, the German high command then threatened to execute any soldier caught with a Trench Gun or even just Trench Gun shells.
General Pershing replied that, henceforth, any Germans caught with flamethrowers or saw-bladed bayonets would be lined up and shot. As far as is known, no American or German POWs were executed under such circumstances "

Morning all.

Currently 45 and clear today.

My mother is back home in California now, probably going to sleep the rest of the day.

Went on what will probably end up being the last fishing excursion of the season last night. Naturally, I forgot the tackle box. So I shoved a Slim Jim on a sinker I had rattling around the floor board, and pulled out some crawfish. I ultimately let them go, since I’m not so fond of seafood.

I made some applesauce last night out of a bag of apples that was bought and then forgotten. Only ended up with a jar and a half, but it came out pretty good.

As designated by the Calendar. We can say good by to Summer today.  It’s a cool 72 low humidity and a nice breeze currently both A/C units are off.

We are cleaning the deck up today. Taken advantage of this weather.
