"In 1887 the Stevens Arms Co. developed the ultimate in .22 rimfire cartridges, the .22 Long Rifle. This used the .22 Long case with a 40 grain RN bullet loaded to higher velocity than the 29 grain Long bullet. It shot flatter and hit harder than any of the previous .22 rimfires except the .22 Extra Long, whose performance it essentially duplicated in a shorter case, and it was more accurate than that cartridge."
.30-06 was developed in 1906 thus the ought six portion if the name.
The .50 BMG was commisioned in 1918 and completed in 1924.

if you where to draw the blade quickly while wearing a long shirt or jacket, would there be any risk to the clothing?

wouldn't it be fairly easy to conceal a knife in a wallet?
also, the belt sword makes me think of this:
"It has often been said that power corrupts. But it is perhaps equally important to realize that weakness, too, corrupts. Power corrupts the few, while weakness corrupts the many. Hatred, malice, rudeness, intolerance, and suspicion are the faults of weakness." - Eric Hoffer

My old boss was shot in the head with a .22 caliber bullet out of a semi auto handgun. She was kneeling, facing away from the shooter execution style with her hands on the back of her head. He shot through her right hand into the skull. Did not pierce the bone but did give her a hell of a migraine and messed up the tendons in her hand.
She's lucky, but still a miserable bitch.

He was armed with a single .22 caliber pistol. After lining up the employees on their knees execution style he shot the assistant manager in the back of the head. The bullet went through her right hand permanently damaging her pinkey on the same hand and impacted the back of her skull. The round failed to penetrate. After this utter failure the gunman decided to flee and was quickly apprehended by the Rochester Police Department.

what an epic fail. attempted to commit multiple murder for fifty bucks, failed, and was quickly caught.
i believe rule 16 applies.
