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.

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.

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?

*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.

Contrary to what most people think not everybody in Australia has been de-gunned.

Nor in Britain either. .22 rifles, along with other types of hunting rifle and shotgun, are still legal.

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...

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.

Such shoddy reporting! The story leaves one vital question unanswered: Did Mr. Stark wet himself when he saw the terrifying Fossgate Bullet?

Many of the same British generation that survived WWI were in their 40s and 50s when the German bombs began falling on London and environs. They endured hardships that few of their modern counterparts could imagine, beginning with the economic dislocations of the 1930s, the shortages and rationing that came with war (again), the need to send their children to the countryside to escape the Luftwaffe and the rockets, none knowing when or if they'd ever see each other again.

Having grown up in America, I had only a tenuous idea of what it meant to be British (or Dutch, Belgian or French) during the war. My education was significantly advanced when I spent time abroad in the 70s and had occasion to speak with people who lived through it, and visited some of those cemeteries whose marble stones seem to stretch into infinity. And standing in the middle of Coventry Cathedral, alone on a Sunday morning, looking up at the sky... a very eerie and quiet moment.

My father always said that what was once meant by "Europe" truly died during World War I. The Brits of that generation were decimated, of course, but the French: they were truly finished off. After the Napoleonic Wars and the Franco-Prussian War, a whole surviving generation of young men rushed headlong into German machine guns and artillery fire shouting "Elan!" to the last man.

MAANNN... One measly bullet!!

That’s nothin’! I was out running down the street last month and found a WHOLE box of .22 hollowpoints lying on the side of the road!

I’m thinking some gang members must’ve been being followed by the cops and tossed ‘em out the window, since they were actually on the street, with some scattered about.

I was so frightened, I scooped ‘em up and brought them home, since I’ve got a .22 bolt-action Winchester! FUN!

True—but the same generation that saw that slaughter in Flanders, Gallipoli, etc., were in charge in the run-up to WW2. The only person(s) who had enough sense to stop Hitler early on was marginalized as a war monger. They were so keen to avoid slaughter again that they waited far too long and hence, had very little choices when the fighting finally broke out.

You’re right, of course - but it wasn’t just the Brits who suffered from delusions about Hitler’s intentions. Wishful thinking and willful blindness were amply evident on this side of the Pond as well. The devastation brought about by WWI (and in my opinion, America’s ultimately unnecessary involvement in it) not only sowed the seeds of the next Great War, but caused many people to delay serious consideration of the true dangers created by Nazi and Japanese imperialism, for fear of more of the same. Instead, the weakness, fearfulness and blindness of the democratic powers only made war inevitable - just as Churchill had warned.

I can understand the panic amongst the once brave and free English who bravely fought off the Spanish, French, and Germans in order to remain free and put up security cameras everywhere.

There used to be a planet between Mars and Jupiter, but a .22 round, not the bullet mind you, the whole round, hit it. That could have been England. I'm...I'm Sirius.

Isn't that about the best video ever? I love it. The guy is a great mime.

He is also very proficient with his rifle of choice. Notice at 3:43 of the video when he ejects a cartridge by working the bolt. The cartridge ejects as it should but he catches it in the hand working the bolt between thumb and forefinger! It looks too practiced to be accidental. He has done this many times before.
Anyway, it impressed the hell outta me.
