For those sick of name calling, skip to the end. There is a technical
point Rich made that plainly indicates he believes the best
suppressor is no suppressor at all.
For those who wonder about honesty, read it all.

He asked you why you called me an rauchsnauzer (or
something) instead of keeping the response technical, and you
respond by explaining I am a "lapdog".

No I can't, I don't know how.
If you state that someone "said something", you should quote that
person's words exactly as written. Otherwise we have only your
opinion of what was said, and opinions have no technical value.

Let me see if I have this correct.
Because you can forge official looking documents, and because the
documents I have disagree with your claims that I am a liar, I must
be a liar.

I see, so it is not only me lying just to discredit you. Buzz Miklos
is also a liar, who falsified his credentials in textbooks just to
It's "interesting", Rich, how anyone who disagrees with you is a
liar.... and how documents that disagree with you are all false.

If one person says another might have done something or be something,
it is only a personal opinion. Personal opinions and name calling
are best left out of technical discussions. Why won't you do

Let me correct my mis-statement.
The nichrome suppressor Wes tested was greatly different than the
suppressor you "do not sell" to people.
Why didn't you ask Wes to build a suppressor exactly like the one you
"do not sell", instead of testing a different style suppressor?
Since it was different, why do you misuse the results?

Finally something technical from you!!!
1.) You claim the best suppressor is one with the lowest Rp.
2.) The conventional suppressor has an Rp of 170 ohms, and the
nichrome 104 ohms.
Let's take that further.....
The lowest Rp would occur with a dead short, zero turns and zero
ohms. Rp would be zero.
Following your logic, wouldn't the best suppressor be no suppressor
at all..since Rp would be zero ohms?

I see, so now Wes is a liar?
> Is it honest for you to stonewall your post of 28 November, 1996?
Stonewall what post? There you go again with impossible to
understand personal innuendo.
Out of that big long post there was only one technical point
you made. I've made my point about your name calling and accusations.
Unless you have something technical, like a response to the Rp issue,
