90s in high school? God I feel old!
A friend had one. It was supposed to be “tactical” but it weighed a freakin ton and was just awkward to wield.
IIRC there was some order you had to follow to switch modes or it would literally lock up the action.
It looked cool but that’s about all it had going for it.
This thread is a kick right in the feels.
I love my 41 magnum and 45 GAP.
I really like 32 magnums.
And in highschool I almost bought a ruger(?) 22hornet over 20ga double barrel rifle/shotgun. I really wish I had now because I also love my 22 hornet.
I’m going to say 6.8 SPC. Although, it’s had some success. I thought about buying 1 countless times.
I really wish the 277 Wolverine would have caught on. It seemed like a better idea given that the BCG is the same as 5.56.
in the end, I just decided to stop making compromises and just went to 308.
As mentioned above a couple of times, electronic primers and firing systems for small arms.
Moly coated bullets.
I really like my 45 GAP. And ammo is readily available for the relatively same price as 45 acp. Like the size better too.
That nobody could get magazines for....
Winchester Super Short Mags.
Remington's Ultra Mag.
Colt Double Eagle
The Zip .22
The FN Scar L&H
Smith & Wesson Smegma
.224 Valkerie. .25-45 Sharps.
90% of .223 derivatives - flavor of the month rounds
I’d forgotten about the Hudson and the .224 Valkyrie!
.45 GAP - went from the next big thing to a 2 for 1 gun special at Bud's pretty quick. I think, toward the end, .45 GAP Glocks were selling for under $300 new with no special blue label deals or anything.
Magpul Masada. Which was sold, and became the ACR.
Pretty much any light rifle made to replace the AR.
ETA. Except the gyro jet, all still useful in a limited nich capacity.
The "Revolutionary" Glock 44.
The .357 Maximum handgun. I saw some guns that were flame cut on the top strap. Looked like they were cut with a hacksaw. Still used in rifles but no handguns are made.
The .327 Magnum was being discontinued by most of the first revolver manufacturers until Ruger brought it back. Currently, Ruger makes the SP-101, LRX, GP-100, Single-Six chambered for it. Henry makes a few Big Boy lever actions for it. I believe it will remain a niche caliber, but seems to have caught on with some people into revolvers and reloading.
This could have set the accuracy world on fire if done right. No lock time and firing pin vibration could have been nothing but a positive.
Ha-Ha...for those of us "in the know", the .41 Magnum is the cat's pajamas and the 10MM the bee's knees.
Great idea... put the B/C gap even closer to your hands.
