Frank-the-fibber posts on internet forums:

"Yep, the .22 I got from a big-box store, which has a pre-mounted genuine, Chinese 3-9 scope, will shoot 1/4" groups all day long with Golden Bullets."

Really? Frank, are you sure you're not really one of these?

I have seen Frank's posts. He has a 357 Magnum that will shoot sub one-inch groups at 25 yards with various powder loads and LSWC bullets. Over 1500 fps and not leading at all. Yep, that is Frank. :D

He was the classic:

Gecko_45

hello friends,

Last year I made the decision to trust
my life on the street to Second Chance body
armor. I got the level IIa because it stops
the most rounds. plus I got the Trauma Plate
for the front.
What scares me is that, although I can fit an extra trauma plate in the front, I cannot fit a second one in back. As of late I have taken to duct-taping a second trauma plate to the area of my back where the heart and vital organs are located. Then I put my vest on.
Here is the questions. The ducttape "solution, although tactically sound, is hot and painful to remove. I would like to go
to the single-plate solution in back. What I am worried about is repeated hits to that area with .308 ammunition. I have a high-risk security job and I fear that I would be the target for repeated long-distance shots to my back. Are any of you aware of a thicker plate that could stop, say, .338 Lapua or something like that? Is there a better way to do the second plate? BTW, I am, of course, usually carrying a pair of ceramic plates in my briefcase so that I can shield my head. My SO (we work as a team when necessary) has a similar accessory containing a breakdown NEF single-shot 300 WinMag with an 18" bbl. The plan is that I shield us with my body and "catch the rounds" while she assembles the NEF. I lay down covering fire with my 23 (Bar-Sto .357 Sig barrel) and she makes the long shots. I will then throw smoke grenades to obscure the area while continuing to lay covering fire. The problem, of course, is when I have to turn my back to run, and then the problem crops up.

Thanks,

I miss Gecko ... several times in the last 4-5 years I've done the search for the archived antics .... entertaining to say the least, and the responses from the gullible "readers" were an absolute hoot. Yep, Gecko and his partner in crime were truly artistic "writers".

UMMMM,, YEAH,,,I'm with HappyPappy on this one. LOL.

Sounds like a 21 year old kid at work who claimed he could hold an 8 inch bull at 1000 yards with a 30-30. They obviously are related. :)
