"Live" 22 Short round found, London comes to a Standstill..... info
Is this exactly the way that the "ANTI-GUNNERS from here want us to be also?
It's a freaking .22 short. For those of you that have no clue what a .22 short is. It was a round used in rifles and pistols for arcade shooting and hunting small critters like small mice and such.

.22 is not the worst piece of ammo that can be found - I would seriously worry if it was a 5.56 or 7.62mm laying around.
While being a kid my mates and I used to target practice with .22 in the alley and in the garden - no one raised an eyebrowse as long as the muzzle was pointed at the targets (read the neighbours cats...) Hey we even had live ammo with us at school to show off for the rest of our friends and none of the teachers did anything except to tell us to keep the ammo in the bags, no police and EOD/STING to come around to PUCA it...
Times are changing, I guess...

Is this a joke????
I know it isn't a joke but it is these misconceptions right here that lead to people fearing something more than they should.
If finding a .22 round makes you feel unsafe you should probably re-think your entire life.
A crime, they took it to a lab, my god to think the waste of time and money while someone was probably getting strangled somewhere.....

Before I forget, a round by itself cannot be fired as a normal projectile. Since the cartridge isn't in an enclosed space. Like the chamber of a firearm. The Bullet and casing will simply seperate with a loud pop. I do it all the time while camping. I throw a stary round into the fire and you hear a loud pop. No danger or damage. Just some startled campers next to you while you laugh your ass off.
But once again, the idea of liberalism and it's after effects is shown in my once proud ally of England.
