I found it quite interesting.


I do! But I'd hate to 'bore' you ...

Elucidate

Isn't that an e-date with someone named Luci ? At least that's the modern translation, no?

A 9mm would not do it, but a .44 magnum or even a .357 magnum probably would depending on the range as they are not long range rounds. The .44 magnum is a common caliber for lever-action rifles. A properly choked shotgun blast in the proper place with the right shot would probably do the trick.

But one should really go with a big bore rifle in such an instance Smiler

i don't think it would be possible, you would need something more powerful to take down a t-rex. Those things are big,and probably had thick skins. maybe a well-aimed bazooka would do the job.
