That is BRILLIANT. Almost as good as that 'woman' who poses as a right-wing nut.

"Winston Churchill invented"?





This word, I do not think it means, what they think it means.

He's so good he's almost BAD.

I could see some schmoe not getting it and some of this stuff coming coming around to bite us in the ass.

The infamous ".357 magnum will shoot through a car's engine block" is an urban legend told by a fellow gunner that I've had to short-circuit more than once.

Oh, please, we can only hope that someone is THAT credulous.

Besides Markadelphia that is.

Bilgerman, I have personally shot a bullet from a .357 Magnum through the side and into the crankcase of a 327 Chevy V8 engine block. The engine was lying on its side, having been dumped in a remote area by persons unknown.

I don't know who made the bullet. My cousin handloaded it, and he stated that he obtained the bullets from the Broken Arrow, OK, Police Department, of which he was an auxiliary officer at the time. His carry load in his Model 19 Smith was five rounds of hollowpoints, followed by one of these "armor piercing" rounds.

He showed me one loose bullet. It had a lead core inside a steel jacket, followed by a guilding metal jacket. I could see all three at the base. It had a conical nose with a fairly sharp point.

From my 4" Model 28 Smith, it made a hole that oil flowed out of. It went into the block, but not through it.
