    Mine is Covid CDC compliant because the blast is very effective in incentivizing social distancing at the range.

    I recall years ago seeing either a picture or a short video of an M44 being fired at dusk. The sun had already set but there was still just enough light to see the target & the shooter. Needless to say, the blast that came out of that muzzle literally looked like a flamethrower, a ball of fire that reached out 6-8 feet and lit up the whole area. My first reaction was: can you imagine back in WWII the look on the Germanicon's faces seeing a whole line of Russians charging at them with those guns a-blazing? Yeah, I'd be throwing my hands up in the air too.....

    I think they rather mowed them down...
    They were used enough to the Russianicon material superiority.

    The "muzzle effect" from issue ball in the old 8 x 56R M95 Steyr carbines is pretty wild.

    Recoil is a bit of a wake-up call, as well.
