LR

We had a little fun while trying to light matches with a bullet. Turns out, after we got all our fixturing dialed in, we were able to light multiple matches with a single bullet. A phantom high speed camera helps tell the story. Mythbusters only tried to light one match with a bullet, so we figured we might as well try to push the envelope. I’m sure Jamie and Adam have the budget and time to figure out the perfect curve to stack arrange all the bullets in to light all matches.

The gun of choice for them? The ubiquitous Ruger 10/22 (.22 LR)

Damn I love slow motion footage.

Birmingham, AlabamaA  man angry at his girlfriend fired 15 rounds at her Monday night.

Stephen Gafford, 43, missed but some of the bullets hit too close for comfort. Investigators recovered seven .22-caliber projectiles from the lining of the woman’s purse, said Jefferson County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Randy Christian.

The victim, whose name wasn’t released, went to the sheriff’s Forestdale substation to report the assault. She told authorities she and her boyfriend got into an argument about him smoking crack.

He began punching her in the face, and then opened fire with a rifle. Her purse was slung over her shoulder when it was peppered with the seven shots.

She got away and went to the substation.

Gafford is charged with attempted murder and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held in the county jail on $26,000 bond.

Wow sounds like an outstanding guy. :roll:  No I did not photoshop his picture.

The article says he used a .22 caliber rifle,  so it’s probably safe to assume it was the ubiquitous .22LR rimfire cartridge.  Even so, it must have been a thick purse!  I’ve shot through some fairly strong stuff with .22LR.

That goon deserves everything bad coming his way.  Glad to hear his girlfriend is unscathed; I hope she has enough sense to leave him after this incident.
