Skip to comments..22 bullet found in Fossgate, York (real headline, NOT The Onion)
Posted on 03/02/2011 7:26:08 AM PST by FreedomPoster
A STARTLED man has told how he found a bullet lying in a York city-centre street.
Tim Stark said he was unloading items into the MOR Music store where he works in Fossgate yesterday morning when he spotted what he believed to be a live .22 bullet gleaming in a puddle.
He said he immediately called police, who came and took it away.
I have no idea what it was doing there, he said.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said the bullet had been put into safe storage, and CID had confirmed it was not thought to be connected with any incident currently under investigation.
He asked anyone with any information about the bullet and how it came to be in Fossgate to phone the force on 0845 60 60 47.
Please see my post #95. : )
You beat me to it with that picture. I often have 22’s and shotgun shells roll out on to the pavement when I open the door of my truck.
Quick, somebody call the U.N. Hazmat Crew!
A friend in NSW had a .22 rifle and he said filling out the paperwork just wasn’t worth it and he turned it in during the ‘buy back’ frenzy a few years ago. But yeah, I saw some gun shops in Brisbane the last time I was there.
An excellent explanation of the whole Shooty, No Shooty issue.
Our kitchen sink backed up on us a few years ago. I took a plunger to it and ‘Lo!’ Four 22 cal rounds came up.
We live in my Grandparent’s house and apparently my Grandpa had lost a few down the sink many years before.
We had the plumbing redone shortly after that and don’t have that problem any more.
The Police were not involved.
My 20-something son was over the house the other day. He's digging through a "junk drawer" in the kitchen. You know, the drawer that's filled with everything from toothpicks to batteries to small tools and coupons. Near the bottom of the drawer he comes across a single stripper clip filled with 7.62x39. He holds it up and looks over at me with a smile and says, "I always love coming over here."
So I went shooting one night with a bunch of lawyers after work (so I had my suit pants on). 9mm, .38 and .380s. Lot’s of fun. Teh next week, I was wearign the same suit to work (had not been dry cleaned) and as I’m walking across the screen I hear clinking. Turns out I had a shell in my pant cuff that went bouncing on the street after it popped out of my cuff. Glad it did too, it would be hard to explain if I walked through the metal detector at Court that morning.
Real qusetion is, who uses a .22? In New York?
Did they actually make a crime scene out of the area?
Call out a hazmat team? What?
New way to paralyze a city... sprnkle dummy .22 ammunition in selected places.
You can't make this stuff up.
*How the !$^&* did these people ever survive the Blitz?
Oh, that was their grandparents. The last British generation with brains, guts, and faith. *
That generation really had no choice—remember, we had to send them guns because they literally were disarmed. One could posit that they only survived WW2 because of Hitler’s foolish choices. If he had sent the tanks onto Dunkirk instead of relying on Goering, the story might have ended differently.
The last truly brave generation the British seemed to have was slaughtered en masse in Flanders. After that, it looks to have all gone downhill.
The other night I was looking for something in my wife’s night stand drawer after we went to bed. I left the light off and was trying to find it be feel, glasses case, tume bottle, .357 Magnum. Nope, not there. Maybe it’s in the box on the headboard. Speed loaders and magazines. Nope, not there either. Time to turn the light on.
Nor in Britain either. .22 rifles, along with other types of hunting rifle and shotgun, are still legal.
That pansy would have a fit if he saw my house. Bullets lying about everywhere. On my dresser, under the sofa cushions, on the loading bench....
Instead of just a picture of the hero, too bad there isn’t also video of my daughter. She’d say “Thanks, I could use that” and load it into her Ruger. She’s 8 years old and her 10/22 is pink. Viewers could then be asked to identify which one is the littler girl...
The taller one is the little girl.
It appears to be pining for the fjords....
GOOD THING, TOO! One of those things could have leveled the entire hemisphere, and I hear if you shoot at the sun, you can put it out!!!!
You can't make this stuff up.
LOL. Several years ago I found 15 or 18 rounds of .223 ammo laying at an intersection in central Texas. I just got out my pickup and picked them up. Brought them to work and gave them to a guy who has an AR 15. This idiot would have messed his drawers if he had seen them.
