First he gets sold some bad weed.

Then he gets chased by dinosaurs.

Next, he gets shot.

Poor guy's having a rough day.

Update - Authorities are at a loss to explain the large, three-toed footprints in the front yard.

I'm curious what type of dinosaurs were chasing him. Were they chicken-sized Compsognathus, man-sized Velociraptors or a two-story Tyrannosaurus Rex? It's important for me to know becuase I might have to adjust my home defense armament if this is going to continue to be a problem.

Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Forget it. If they survived the meteorite, nothing can stop them.

Yup, apparently they've evolved so much they can even unlock doors now. Clever girls.

How difficult do you think it was for the cop doing the interview to keep a straight face?

Cool

Col. Cooper may have considered it a poodle shooter, but 31 rounds of 77gr. 5.56 JHP's is gonna put a hurting on ANY dino-dopers who bust out my living room window at quarter of 6 in the morning...

Yeah, unless they wear body armor made out of what the experts here say defeats 5.56 every time:

Drywall.

That's what's said by AR fans in "over-penetration" discussions. Apparently the cheap construction of you average condo, that I can stab a screwdriver through, will stop a 5.56 like the flank of a Brink's Truck.

Nice to know we send our boys into battle with a cartridge that can't defeat an Oreo.

In one of his YouTube videos 22plinkster showed that even a lowly .22LR bullet will punch right through a dozen sheets of drywall. That was using CCI Stingers, so a solid bullet would likely go through even more. Therefore over-penetration in a home environment is going to be a problem no matter what caliber you use. Apartment dwellers would be wise to consider Glaser Safety Slugs or sticking to a shotgun loaded with birdshot.

dsk--------- That video proves it. My drywall flak jacket idea is busted.

And the Taliban cannot hide from AR's behind a wall in a cheap tract home.

Unless a 5.56 is less "penetratey" than a .22 LR.

.......And yet, most of the media never misses an opprotunity to characterize the AR15/5.56 as a 'High Power weapon/cartridge of war'

WhySoBlu ------------- I was joking. I know that 5.56 has penetration much greater than .22LR.

I was poking fun at the guys who say it's close to harmless to your neighbors. I know that it's very much NOT easily stopped.

I know this because some tenants left a whole bank's worth of those thick "bulletproof glass" Lexan panels. ------------- tenants leave all kinds of stuff.

I sold them except for a chunk to shoot at. And yes, even giant handguns do nothing to it but make little Moon Craters.

But military rifle calibers plow right on through. Including 5.56 out of a Mini 14. Now if you loaded up some soft, expanding rounds in your AR that would lessen the over penetration danger but not stop it.

Because .22 LR is a soft lead 40 grain bullet at 1,500 FPS. That goes through 10 sheets of drywall.

And 5.56 is a 60 grain bullet at 3,200 FPS.

So no, I don't think a crappy duplex wall will stop one, unless it hits a pipe.
