OK, if all y'all can have a thread about y'alls bows and arrows, I should be able to start one about shuriken and nunchaku. :grin3: In the great Commonwealth of Kentucky, our conceal carry permits are actually referred to as CCDW where the DW stands for deadly weapon.

They left out a lot of deadly weapons. How about a hatchet or claw hammer or wood chisel or many other tools?

That pretty much means every carpenter out there is openly carrying a deadly weapon in his hammer on his tool belt.:ROFL::ROFL::ROFL::ROFL: And heaven forbid we talk about nail guns!!! I was inside a house we were building and the guy on the outside was nailing on the sheathing and he missed the stud. That 16D nail blew right through the plywood and missed me by about a foot and ricocheted around the room! I am diving for cover yelling CEASE FIRE, CEASE FIRE!!!! I don't know how much harm it would have caused to me but the fact that it bounced around the room off of two or three walls makes me think it would hove gone all the way in the body. We made sure from that point on that nobody was inside while nailing on the sheathing!

I mentioned that this was a snippet. For example, if I get pulled over and a cavity search ensues and that search reveals an orange in a nylon stocking, that is a deadly weapon also. The list is a partial list of items who's design and purpose is to inflict death or serious injury. Now if I eat that orange? No evidence, no crime.

They use nail guns to shoot people in movies, strange they are never attached to an air hose and don't have to be pressed up against anything to fire.

Long ago I used to have a Hilty Gun that could shoot into steel. It did not have a ramming rod and some people were killed or injured in the next door concrete apartments. These guns were high velocity. ( I even shot across the Delaware while holding the barrel against a small tree)
They were made illegal when the low velocity gun with a ramming rod was introduced.
I didnt think that shooting thru plywood would propel the nail far.
I have a nice Porter Cable and I'll try today to see how it does

I hope that guy was fired. Nobody, I mean nobody in their right mind would hang 7/16" thick OSB sheathing with a nail that big. The same thing happened to me years ago but it was an 8d nail. Back then, nail guns came with two triggers, black and grey. One would require you to release and pull the trigger after each shot. The other would allow you to keep the trigger pulled but pull the gun away from the work about an inch or so then push it against the work and it would fire. This was the preferred setup because guys found they could bounce the gun and nail as fast as they could bounce it. A guy was bouncing the gun around a window opening and caught the edge and a nail hit me in the back of my head. I knew exactly what happened and felt to see how far the nail went in. I had long hair back then and the nail was just kinda hanging there. I think nail guns and ramsets have enough force to drive nails but the travel of the rod is to short to give nails the velocity they need to do much damage from a distance. So, all that was just to say, a nail gun is a piss poor weapon of any kind, let alone a deadly weapon.

Well I guess somebody was bound to go there...

No, the guy wasn't fired. He was a friend and the guy in charge was my Brother in law and we were doing the work for a relative so it was all free work anyway. And the nail may not have been a 16, It was 20 years ago and I am not a carpenter, I am a mechanic. I have a Porter-Cable and I have tried the nail shooting by holding the plunger and shooting 2 1/2 inch nails at heavy cardboard. It will do some damage out to 25-30 feet but the nail is not exactly a precision projectile. Every shot it hit a different way. Only once did it stick in and that was on an angle. Now, distance wise, I shot a nail into the woods 200 feet away using Kentucky windage. All of my nail guns will bump fire with only one trigger. The Porter Cable is only about 10 years old so if anything it would be the one with double safeties on it but none. All I have to do is hold the trigger and smack the nose of the gun against the board. That can be dangerous if you don't pull back fast enough since you might get a double shot and when the second nail hits the first it can ricochet.

I remember the Hilti guns when they first came out. You had to get a license to use the gun! The purple charge was the one used for steel beams. I would NOT try firing one of those into the air!!!!!! I saw a guy come into the hospital who had used the steel charge to shoot a nail into a 2x4 on a concrete floor. Blew the floor apart like a shooting a 30-06 directly into a concrete block. Back then eye protection was not thought about all that much but luckily this guy wore glasses and he had on the protective type as his prescription. I was on the emergency squad at the time and we stopped by the construction site on the way back to the station to see what had happened. It was impressive to say the least. Totally splintered the board and blew a hole 4" deep and probably 8" around in the floor. His injuries were all minor cuts and small pieces of concrete to be removed from his arms and face.

The left and right glove compartments or those little cubbies under the rear speakers. Your bike doesn't have those?

Here's the results I shot thru a piece of skinny cardboard.
The nail exited with a bit of energy and hit something in the garage.
I folded the cardboard till the nail didn't exit any more. About 6 -7 layers.in my hand you see the cardboard
I shot a few in plywood but none went totaly thru.

However I'm sure there are occasions when it will go thru the plywood.
(Sharper, smaller diameter nail. Crappier plywood etc)

Looks about normal. They go pretty fast but nothing even close to the velocity of even a 22 rimfire a bullet. About the only energy is in the plunger of the nail gun.

I can still hit pretty good with a mouse... Penn. is a "Shall Issue State", we're also an open carry state. In most cases that means if you can legally own a fire-arm the county sheriff has to take your money and issue you a license to carry. No where on the application nor on the license itself does the word CONCEALED ever appear, it is a license to carry.


What the license does for most honest folks is to loosen up the pain in the ass rules for vehicle transport. Want to drive and carry ?, ride a motorcycle, bicycle, garden tractor, horse, or even a horse drawn cart or buggy ? You need a Pa. license to carry fire-arms.


No training required, there is a background check and a questionable personal reference requirement. $25.00 and good for five years. Aside from the political B/S of the different attourney generals involved, the lack of required training is in my opinion the major drawback in our getting reciprocity with a lot of other states.


And as Dave said. "The bad guys do it, so might as well"...

I saw it on TV, the blacklist. James Spader (Reddington) said when the girl lost her FBI credentials and the boss told her she couldn't carry a gun. "every criminal I know carries one"

Did'nt your Governor just sign a conceal/carry law with NO training?
