Until now, the powerful “M855 green tip” bullet has been legal for use in AR-15 semiautomatic rifles, typically used by target shooters and hunters. But the gun industry’s reckless development of new handguns that use the bullet — criminals prefer handguns over rifles — has led the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to sensibly propose banning it in the name of greater gun safety.
Ahh, that magical green-tip bullet… . But now, we have a handgun that shoots it too! OMG! How reckless!
Maybe one response from the NYT to Bearing Arms’ Bob Owens defense of m855. Other than that, cue the chirping crickets…. .
Fact: This Rifle (which looks like an air rifle, but its not. Its my famed Stevens 325 30-30) –
Because Owens is right. I’ll leave editorializing to others. He nails it.
BTW, the latter ammo is great for deer.
I’d better stock up on 30-30 ammo.
