That's funny.  I went Elk hunting in Idaho when my cousin lived out there.  I said I was from South Carolina and one person thought I said South California (my deep southern accent and all you know).  Once they figured I was from South Carolina I was ok.  But they sure didn't like Californians......

My brother in law, a retired Navy Man, left Oregon because of all the people from CA moving up the coast and driving prices for housing out of sight. Then came liberals that changed laws and such.
I am Michigan boy, we have all four seasons, open carry and CCW, the Great Lakes, three deer seasons, black bears and bird seasons. You never more that an hour from a lake or a public shooting range.
We are the state that Hillary forgot to visit and pay the price.

I wouldn't mind Northern Arizona. I've got family in Yuma and if I were going to give the state an enema, that's where I would stick the nozzle.

Lol, you are 100% correct about Yuma.

I lived in Tucson for 8 years, it was nice, but not the same Tucson I remembered in my younger years. Five years ago I considered living in Prescott. But seeing that the closest airport (Phoenix) was an 1 hour and 45 minutes away, I couldn't consider it. 

Yes, AZ is gun friendly, for now, but so was Oregon, Washington and even California. We are running out of states! I guess that's why I like Idaho. It would be one of the very last states to be converted.

Almost looks like the muzzle has been recessed crowned on Clint's gun? 11 degree??? Note the reflection on bottom of muzzle bore.

Clint-2 was modified to be a straight blow-back firing pistol. I may be wrong on this, but from what I remember, Clint-2 was a modified .45 WM barrel with a longer chamber to accept the crimped blank cartridges. The muzzle of Clint-2 was sleeved to increase back pressure, to assist in the weapons operation. 

This would be best explained by Larry Grossman, which built Clint-2 and had to cut his honeymoon short, to keep the pistol functioning, during the filming of Sudden Impact. Pictured is a fired blank cartridge, fired through Clint-2, during testing. Note that the case is bulged near the front, expanding in the modified 45 chamber. 

Bruce Stark knows more about the history of the making of Clint-2, hopefully he'll chime in.

I got it from a "Friend" Wink. I will ask him if he has anymore for sale. I got this casing back in 1991. Dang, that's 25 years ago!
