    In the noisome wake of the previous
    BoG Quiz Part I,
    BoG Quiz Part II,
    BoG Quiz Part III,
    and
    BoG Quiz Part IV,

    I offer 10 more firearms-related questions to ponder.
    Subukan ninyo lang ---just for fun!


    BoG Quiz : Part V
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. What legal basis exists for a recent PNP initiative seeking to limit
    firearm ownership to 10 firearms per citizen?


    2. What is the largest handgun that Clint Eastwood has ever used
    onscreen?


    3. Aside from centerfire, what are two other cartridge-primer classes?


    4. Which BoG member is the dread bane of innocent consumer video appliances?


    5. In a nutshell, why is 'the right to keep and bear arms' never going to be included,
    even as a mere mention within an amendment, in any putative new Constitution
    of the Republic of the Philippines?


    6. What is the smallest, commercial-production, 9mm Parabellum caliber,
    magazine-fed handgun available today?


    7. Why are bore cleaners potentially risky for nickel-finished firearms?


    8. Many cartridge manufacturers offer different bullet weights/designs
    within a given caliber. In that context, does a heavier bullet suggest
    more powder (charge) inside the casing??


    9. Which reaches greater velocity, Armscor .45 ACP FMJ w/ the copper jacket
    or the newer Armscor .45 ACP FMJ with the yellow brass jacket?


    10. Name a Philippine-made, commercially-produced, mag-fed shotgun.


    Bonus question: Bakit malamang na hiyang kina batangueño at EyeCutter
    ang paggamit ng papaya soap?

    2. A S&W .44 magnum?
    3. rimfire and i don't know the other one
    4. si mcoliver?
    6. the kahr mk9?
    8. lower powder charge
    9. the one with the copper jacket bec. it expands more than the brass jacket to seal the barrel better?

    2. L.A.R. Grizzly .44 Win Mag

    7. Because of the ammonia present in the solvent.

    8. Lower powder charge ( PF computation).

    9. Jacketed. The jacketed bullet does not distort (when passing through the bore) as much as the plated bullet. You can also load a higher powder charge in the jacketed bullets. Normally, I reduce the load for a jacketed bullet by 10% when loading lead or plated bullets.

    Alvin first got #8 correctly!
    Isuzu came in second

    :thumbsup:


    8. Many cartridge manufacturers offer different bullet weights/designs
    within a given caliber. In that context, does a heavier bullet suggest
    more powder (charge) inside the casing??


    No, a heavier bullet is indicative of a smaller powder charge.
    Most ammunition manufacturers follow the US market's SAAMI specs,
    which sets a maximum case pressure per cartridge caliber/type,
    regardless of what kind of bullet is in it.

    A lighter bullet has less inertia to overcome before moving
    out of the casing. This means less time spent there by the bullet,
    not sealing off the burning gases or allowing pressure to build up
    excessively. Again, the powder charge is measured to not exceed SAAMI
    spec case pressure limits.

    A heavier has more inertia to overcome, and so loiters longer in
    the case mouth, sealing off the burning gases and allowing more time
    for case pressure to build. The same load of powder as for a lighter
    bullet, given extra time to burn, means more case pressure. To avoid
    exceeding SAAMI limits, the powder charge has to be reduced.




    9 questions, plus the bonus question, remain!

    1. What legal basis exists for a recent PNP initiative seeking to limit
    firearm ownership to 10 firearms per citizen?

    Surely you guys have heard of this development!
    :)

    2. What is the largest 'handgun' that Clint Eastwood has ever used
    onscreen?

    Not the S&W .44, nor the .44 Mag Autoloader, nor even a L.A.R.
    (I don't actually recall seeing the last one in Clint's onscreen hands).
    An even more imposing blaster than any of those is the answer...
    although it may actually be easier to name the movie, heheh.

    3. Aside from centerfire, what are two other cartridge-primer classes?
    Alvin got one out of two. Ya need 2/2 to make it count, hehe.
    'Berdan' falls under centerfire, manong ante.

    4. Which BoG member is the dread bane of innocent consumer video appliances?
    Oliver is known as the dread bane of FIREARMS more than any other widget
    Someone else here has a record of wreaking violence (not tinkering)
    on home electronics.

    5. In a nutshell, why is 'the right to keep and bear arms' never going to be included,
    even as a mere mention within an amendment, in any putative new Constitution
    of the Republic of the Philippines?

    Heheh, manong ante... try again!

    6. What is the smallest, commercial-production, 9mm Parabellum caliber,
    magazine-fed handgun available today?

    Nope, not any of the Kahr micros.

    7. Why are bore cleaners potentially risky for nickel-finished firearms?
    Isuzu correctly pointed to ammonia as the culprit, but
    I need the 'why' of it. The mechanics, so to speak, of ammonia
    being a risk to nickel plated firearms.

    9. Which reaches greater velocity, Armscor .45 ACP FMJ w/ the copper jacket
    or the newer Armscor .45 ACP FMJ with the yellow brass jacket?

    Nope, the older copper-jacketed FMJ's do NOT fly faster.

    Oooops :supergrin:
    Guess that reveals, the newer gold-colored, brass-jacketed FMJ's do.
    Tell me na lang WHY they might pick up a little more speed.

    10. Name a Philippine-made, commercially-produced, mag-fed shotgun.
    This model is backordered by well over 200 units as we speak.
    Very affordable pa nga.

    Bonus question: Bakit malamang na hiyang kina batangueño at EyeCutter
    ang paggamit ng papaya soap?

    Sure, batangueño and EyeCutter have a rich, masculine skin color...
    Sure, papaya soap is sold as a skin whitening aid...
    What of it?

    The question remains:
    Why would papaya soap likely be appropriate for them both?

    Because the Philippine Supreme Court has already ruled that bearing arms is a mere privilege and not a right under Philippine law.

    Is it the Rohrbaugh R9, found at www.rohrbaughfirearms.com? It has a width of .812 inches, length of 5.2 inches, and height of 3.7 inches.

    antedeluvianist got #3 correctly!
    mikey177 got #6 correctly!

    :thumbsup: :thumbsup:


    3. Aside from centerfire, what are two other cartridge-primer classes?

    Rimfire and Pinfire indeed!
    Here's a pretty good page on pinfire revolvers, with an image
    of the cartridge itself near the bottom of the page.

    6. What is the smallest, commercial-production, 9mm Parabellum caliber,
    magazine-fed handgun available today?


    The Rohrbaugh R9 is the smallest.
    User evaluations have been insanely positive.

    Sigue na... try this one, heheh...

    2. What is the largest 'handgun' that Clint Eastwood has ever used
    onscreen?

    Try again!

    4. Which BoG member is the dread bane of innocent consumer video appliances?
    Hindi pagkakalikot, kundi dahas, laban sa video appliance!!!
    Mwahahaha...

    5. In a nutshell, why is 'the right to keep and bear arms' never going to be included,
    even as a mere mention within an amendment, in any putative new Constitution
    of the Republic of the Philippines?

    Mikey, the SC's ruling was based on a reading of the current Constitution.
    Any RKBA amendment to the Constitution would have to be honored by
    the SC in subsequent rulings.


    7. Why are bore cleaners potentially risky for nickel-finished firearms?
    Isuzu correctly pointed to ammonia as the culprit, but again,

    I'll play.
    2. S&W Performance Center in either 8 or 7 shoots.
    I believe the question was largest handgun and not biggest caliber.

    EyeCutter got #4 correctly!

    :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    4. Which BoG member is the dread bane of innocent consumer video appliances?

    A long, long time ago...
    In a certain room far, far away...
    Good old darwin25 mercilessly perforated his VCR.
    Why you ask? Indeed, why poke a hole in a helpless piece of electronics?
    Maybe its LED display was blinking at him the wrong way...
    Maybe it wouldn't play his pirated copy of 'Jenna loves Large Calibers'...
    Maybe it was just one of those days when SOMETHING needed killin'.
    :supergrin:

    Try this one, guys... heheh... it won't bite.

    2. What is the largest 'handgun' that Clint Eastwood has ever used
    onscreen?

    Alvin, here's a clue ...it wasn't a .50, and
    neither a 'nade launcher nor a LAW count as handguns, hahaha!
    Vega, I'm pretty sure it was not an S&W PC.
    You're on the right track, though...

    Hi, Allegra!

    :thumbsup:


    That reminds me... here's a clue to the bonus question:
    Papaya soap probably isn't AS appropriate/useful for Allegra,
    as it likely is for EyeCutter and for Paul (batangueño).
    :supergrin:

    9. the brass jacketed bullets achieve higher velocities because it creates a better seal inside the barrel?

    Hi, HEAVY! :)

    Actually, yellow brass is generally harder than copper, and so tends
    to fight fuller obduration into the rifling. On that score, copper
    jackets have a generally better tendency towards full seal of the bore.

    2. Was that the gun they mounted on a back of either a Bronco or a Blazer which they used to blast a wall of a bank to rob it? It's an old movie and couldn't remember the title.

    7. What ammonia does is to penetrate and loosen dirt. Since nickel is merely a plating, ammonia can penetrate the nickel and keep it from sticking to the metal.

    9. The properties of brass which makes it less resistance to friction?

    Dagdagan ko yung kay Ante sa #7:

    If the nickel-coating has tiny nicks or chips that ammonia can seep into, it will eat away at the base coating (Cu?). Eventually, chipping off a portion of the top-layer nickel.
