Default Alot of people think that all bullets travel at the same speed

Therefore 380acp must be more powerful than 300 win mag right? It's a larger number.

I kid you not, I overheard this at Reeds indoor range, and his two buddies said "That's right!"

Well, there's your answer to the 9 v 45 debate. Then again, 22 is bigger than 8.

An excellent article which describes how everyone thinks they are an expert is: We are all Confident Idiots http://www.psmag.com/health-and-beha...t-idiots-92793

It turns out, the less the idiot knows, the more confident the idiot is about being right. Having been the idiot many times, I want to say, at least I tried to get educated on things, but, I still express with great confidence, opinions in matters about which I am actually clueless. I anticipate being an idiot again and again in the future.

Please forgive me when I am.

This just in...there are dumb people everywhere you go.

It doesn't make you smarter, it just means they are dumb.

1/2MV^2. You'll need this if you want to calculate energy. If your redneck brain can't do that, you should be talking about something else.

I would have to think there's more to the conversation than perhaps you heard. It could have been nothing more than sarcasm. They probably said that to cause a reaction which is lame regardless.

That logic could have only come from the California State Legislature. They are about as intelligent as a used wet-wipe on the floor of a beachside public toilet.

Wait ... so 5.56 is, like, 25 times faster than .223?

Wow.

Shortly after just landing at a big international airport in his Cessna 150, our hero strolls into the busy airport cafeteria for a bite to eat. He finds an empty table by the window to keep an eye on the airport comings and goings. Shortly thereafter, a striking woman walks up and asks to share his table. Naturally, he invites her to sit down.
After several minutes of small talk, the woman asks if he is a pilot. He responds, "Why, yes, I am -- I fly a C-150." Knowing next to nothing about airplanes, she asks him what a C-150 is. The pilot looks out the window and spots a C-130 Hercules taxing out for takeoff.
Pointing to it, he tells his companion, "See that plane over there? That is a C-130. I fly a C-150!"

Love watching Hickok45 shoot pistol calibers at 100 yard plates and seeing the bullet flight right before impact. Cool stuff.

Someone probably got it confused with bullets dropping at the same rate.

one time a guy of facebook tried to tell me that the average glock shoots around 13,000 mph, regardless of the cartridge being fired.

All this must be due to the "new math" and "common core"

Since the conversation happened at a gun store, I'm surprised that a clerk didn't say it's a legal requirement.

I always wondered about Superman being "faster than a speeding bullet".

Which one?

My younger brother used to think that a Ford truck's model number advertised its horsepower; an F-150 had 150 HP and so on. People get hung up on the numbers without considering what they signify.
