excerpt:

On the rainy afternoon of March 30, 1981, as Reagan left the Washington Hilton Hotel, Hinckley, a drifter from a wealthy family, fired six rounds from a .22-caliber Rohm RG-14 revolver. The shots wounded Reagan, seriously wounded a policeman and Secret Service agent, and permanently disabled presidential press secretary James Brady, who was struck in the head. Twelve days later, Reagan was back in the White House.

Rohm RG-14

RFK got it with an Iver Johnson

A 50 caliber assault bullet hose with a high capacity clip, flash hider that made it invisible, a folding stock to conceal it in a coat pocket, a pistol grip that allows for "spray fire," two bayonets, a silencer and it was easilly converted to automatic machine gun that Hinkly bought via a gunshow loophole. And it didn't have a lock either.

Was Hinckley just an idiot? Why use a .22? Did he ever admit if his intent was to injure or kill Reagan?

funny, I have that same pistol except that it has fake wood grips. I have to tighten every screw after about 18 rounds or it misfires. It still gets shot more than any of my pistols.

It was a porcelain Glock 7.

They use revolvers because they are too stupid to use a auto.
Didn't Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme use a 1911 on Ford and stupidly not rack it or something.

I thank God he was incompetent with whatever he used.

A Rhom?

So it was the germans fault.

You forgot it was loaded with White Rhino bullets and aimed with HomeBoy Night Sights!

I thought it was a high capacity 22 revolver that shoots a hail of bullets and can crash a plane! (If you tossed the revolver in to the turbine it might)

His "intent" was to impress Jodie Foster. Perhaps the .22 was to "show off".

As I understood the event at the time, she had a cocked & locked 1911 pointed at Ford's head, but couldn't manipulate the grip safety, frame safety, and trigger all at the same time with her small hands.

This is actually true. And it was made by Glock out of advanced ceramics. That's how he got it through airport security.

To bad the idiot wasn’t using a .45, we wouldn’t have half the problems we have today if it wasn’t for that motherfucker and his whore of a wife, who tries to assassinate someone with a .22?

Edited to retract erroneous statement.



this is correct . . and the reason they failed to work as designed was they weren't travelling at a high enough velocity outta that crappy Rhom snub-nose revolver to set the charge off.
similar to the compound in a primer - a light firing pin strike fails to ignite it
