Full moon clips

Postby Stiv » Mon Nov 22, 2004 2:35 pm

Ok someone xplain these puppies to me.

Advatages? Disadvatages? Heck I can't even get the rounds in them, and then you need an extracter to get the casings out? Is that because they're new?

Glad I got them cheap. For now I guess I'll stick to my speedloaders.

From the looks of it, BFCers seem to like ALOT of ammo at once.

I was thinking if I ever got a gun for my place, it would be a .22 Henry Rifle with an 8 shot clip (the "survival" model).

This way I could plink away at terrorists from my window when they decide to invade New York. Or shoot squirrels to sruvive when the "dirty bomb" goes off and it takes a while for food to be delivered into the city again when people realise that blowing up a bunch of old smoke detectors is not that dangerous or toxic.

(or I could go cower behind Stiv with his bag ass Magazines.)

Actually Kurt they aint all that big ie

I was just curious as to what advantages they offer as opposed to a speed loader.

The .22 would actually be a good choice for everything you described. I've been toying with the same notions. My problem is when it comes to fire arms is I have an insatiable appetite for the impracticle. I like big bangs, so some day I'll spring for something that's overkill like an M-14 or something silly.

Best,

Since I never saw that you got a decent reply, I will try to help.

Moon clips (both full and half) were originally devised to shoot .45ACP ammo in a revolver. Since the ACP is rimless, a retention device was needed.

Not certain about the motherhood of this. Perhaps to shoot .45ACP in a gun chambered for .45 Colt? Perhaps so an army/police force could maintain one ammo line regardless if issue was autos or revolvers? All I know is that they are very old school. They were most popular with S&W revolvers.

Don't tell me you were trying to put rimmed revolver ammo in them...?

Don't forget the CHUDs.
I know the law. And I have spent my entire life in its flagrant disregard.

Thanks Tiki. Duh yeah I guess I was. The ones I got were seven shot to fit my .357 S+W 686. That's how the S+W catolog listed them. I had a coupon and picked them up.

So I guess these would just be good for .357 Sig then, right? Makes sense.

Thanks,
Stiv
