Where do we get such men?

Wonder how long he'll have to wait for the NHS to treat his PTSD.

If ol’ Timmy was that worried about a single .22 bullet...

...he’d have a heart attack if he peeked under the mats at the loose rounds on the floor of my truck.

How the !$^&* did these people ever survive the Blitz?

Oh, that was their grandparents. The last British generation with brains, guts, and faith.

In a way he did the right thing. In the UK if he had TOUCHED IT they might have arrested him on charges of attempted murder of the queen. They are so hosed up... argh.

He would have peed all over himself for sure if he had seen me walking out of WalMart yesterday afternoon with 550 of them little missiles. To say nothing of the (GASP!) 100 9mm’s in the same bag.

Speaking of which, I need to run buy Wal-Mart and pick up a few things. I think I’ll get couple more bricks while I’m there. I think they’ve had the bonus 550 packs the last couple times.

A classic!

Thank you for that!

Having just watched that video, and, considering I am a Tea Party supporter, I am now a completely trained and lethal domestic terrorist!

Will there be a follow-up training video on how to infiltrate behind enemy lines?

...er...never mind. I'm already there...

Several years ago I flew to Australia wearing a jacket that had a .22 live round in one of the pockets. When I got to my hosts house I discovered it. I pulled it out and placed it on their kitchen counter and said “Lookie here what I found in my pocket” - they stared at it in unbelief, like it was something that came from outer space. Funny.

I have a hard time reconciling this story with the fact that Britain was fire-bombed by the Germans during World War II.

Can people actually run that far, that fast, in the opposite direction?

Apparently so...

The fools don’t even know the difference between a cartridge and a bullet. If they want a real shock they have no farther to look than the trunk of my car and its glove compartment. If they want to try for real strokes then they should go on to the rest of my house.

It's too dangerous to defuse. They'll have to blow it in place.

I saw a handful in a parking lot. It was raining, and I figured I'd
police them on the way back, rather than walking around the
grocery with a pocket of wet ammunition, and dirty hands.

Alas, a car parked over the spot.

I hate my keyboard, it misses whole words.
To repeat, Here in America we these as emergency fuses in our trucks.

A .22 can be a lifesaver to start a fire, pull the bullet, smash empty but still live primer with rock to ignite powder.

Contrary to what most people think not everybody in Australia has been de-gunned. You can still own a gun there, not as much as we see here in America though.

If nothing else given the necessity for the mother of invention Australia will evolve and come up with a pistol or a rifle that is light years from what we have seen in the last decade, they already have Metalstorm.

I wonder at the melee that would ensue if they found one of my .45-70 rounds in the gutter.

Probably would cause meetings at 10 Downing Street. Backbenchers in Parliament shouting and carrying on.

Sirens, helicopters, armored vehicles lined up.

Redjackets marching To and Fro.

Would be a riot.

Many years ago there was a story on FR from a UK paper about a WWII-era German bomb discovered by a construction crew buried in the earth in a town near the coast in England. Some country lane was cordoned off, and the bomb was safely defused and removed.

About a year or so after that, there was another story about the same town where a .22 bullet was found outside of some candy store and the story read like a breathless 'breaking news' panic: "Police are launching an investigation", "No citizens, in particular children, were in danger say police", etc.

I swear. Stukas dropping bombs from the sky on schoolhouses, not a big deal in England. A loose bullet outside of a chip shop, and they come unglued.

One morning I walked into the office where I worked and found a .22 bullet on the floor next to my desk. I thought for a nanosecond I should call the military police and report it. I then decided it wasn’t worth the bother or my time with all the questions I was going to be asked for which I would have no answer. So I tossed it in my upper desk drawer where it stayed until the day I left. I then threw it in the garbage.

And in related news, due to this horrific incident, PBS UK is considering bringing back the Television series “Danger UXB” PBS Spokesman Nival Snerdley commented on the “importance of public awareness of these dastardly unspent shells”

I was getting gas at Sams Club a few months back, found 5 or so rounds of 22 ammo laying on the ground. Picked it up and put it in the car, shot it a bit later. I guess it had to be in someones coat pocket or something...

A couple of years ago the entire school system in my rural county went into lock-down because a .22 round was found on the HS property

When I was in 7th and 8th grade my buddy and I regularly brought our .22 rifles to school in the morning and kept them in our lockers. After school we would head over to the town dump and shoot rats. On the way we stopped at the hardware store on main street to buy a box of .22's. We walked through town about a mile to school, a mile to the dump and then 2 miles back home carrying our rifles and no one paid any attention to us at all.

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.
