We can stipulate that the author of this piece is an idiot. Therefore, let us proceed to more interesting things.

And when I bought my first real rifle, an SKS,

Many years ago, I shot regularly at a relatively uncontrolled rifle & pistol range on state DNR land. One fine day, some individuals had placed a bowling ball at the base of the berm, and were shooting at it with various pistols ... seemingly without effect. Curious, I turned my scope on it to watch. To my surprise, they were actually hitting it. Repeatedly. The bullets simply splattered off. I heard one of them exclaim "This is bull$#!+!!!" ... and unlimber an SKS.

Ten rounds reduced the bowling ball to small shards.

Handguns are handguns. Rifles (even medium powered ones) are rifles.

Unless you are shooting a S&W 500 Magnum. Look at youtube as to what those bad boys can do.

I wonder where those bullets fired with a pistol ended up after glancing off the bowling ball...
