    I think it means you are actually going back in time. Check your flux capacitor!

    Live rounds may mean the magazine lips are worn and not holding the rounds in. or bad feed ramp

    But I have yet to see a live round stovepipe

    spent round stovepipe can be alot of things, tight chamber, bad ejector/extractor, short stroking bolt etc

    Excellent.

    About all I know about guns is when end to point at whatever you want to assplode. I'll go through the vids this weekend sometime, as I'm actually quite interested in the mechanics and physics of firearms/ballistics.

    I guess I should probably look up Quebec gun laws as well, although AFAIK they're about as Draconian as you can get. Not really an issue to me as I don't ever intend to carry or even hunt, I'm more interested in target and/or clay shooting. My informal word-of-mouth research found that you can basically only transport a firearm in your vehicle if it's unloaded and inaccessible (i.e. locked in the trunk) and even then are required by law to take the absolute shortest path between your home and the range, without stopping.

    i have a question since i don't know much about pistols.
    in the case of a .45 caliber pistol, what is .45 measuring, or rather what is it measured in?
    also, in a 9mm pistol what is it measuring? the diamter of the barrel? thanks .

    Both are measurments of the diameter of the bullet. .45 is .45 of an inch, or 45% of an inch in diameter. A 9mm is just that, 9mm in diameter. In gerneral the reason you will see these two different types of measurements is because ammo types that are traditionally american will have the .40, .223, .45 measurement etc., while the eupropean ammo types will measure in mm such as 9mm, 7.62mm, 8mm etc. Think KPH vs. MPH as a speedometer reading. Sometimes the American and Euro measurements will be nearly identical such as 7.62 and .30, or .40 and 10mm, though case lenght will vary.

    thanks alot, i appreciate it! one more quick question. in most places, i believe you must be 18 to purchase a shotgun and 21 to purchase a pistol or rifle. i will be 19 this summer, is there anyway for say my dad to buy a pistol and give it to me as a gift? will it legally be in my name? what are the laws surrounding transport? alot of little questions, thanks guys.

    Its probaly just best to wait till your 21 to get a pistol I've heard there are ways around it but don't know anybody that has done it like if your father was to give it to you as a gift but I'd assume it would just be a pain in the ass and you probally wouldn't be able to transport it. But at 18 you can buy all the shotguns and rifles you want so i guess start there.
