Ammo For Sale

Nearby houses evacuated because someone found 75 rounds of ammo. Evacuated because somebody doesn’t know anything about ammo. Shockingly, it was in Texas.

    And they did it more than once……..

    “Shockingly, it was in Texas.”

    No; not shocking. Texas is far from being the mono-block, libertarian “Leave me alone” state that some would like to think.

    40 year old .40cal? Evacuate the neighborhood for corroded ammo? WTF

  4. comatus Says:

    Somebody straighten me out on this: I don’t think there *is* any 40-year old .40 ammunition. Late 80’s, right?

  5. Mr Evilwrench Says:

    40 year old .40 rounds. Have a think on that for a moment. You can indeed be overrun with twits even if they don’t win most of the elections.

  6. Mike V. Says:

    No, you’re right. Actually about 1990 for the “forty”

  7. Fred Says:

    It might as well say 40-40, all they know.

  8. LKP Says:

    75 rounds? Hell, I never go to the range with less than 200. Otherwise, it’s a waste of gas to go there.

    I’m not surprised. I’m from San Antonio, lived here most of my life. We have some really dumb people in high office. We also have some really idiotic restrictions, like before Texas preempted knife laws, it was illegal to have a lockback knife. We were promised that this was to target “gangs” and that it WOULD NOT BE ENFORCED ON “REGULAR” PEOPLE.

    San Antonio is sorta like New York in that the surrounding areas are what you would expect, but San Antono itself is a hotbed of idiotic “feel-good” laws.

    Well the good thing is that from the press photo, it looks like they have about 1 responder for each round of ammunition. Can never be too careful. At least it wasn’t already loaded into high capacity assault clips, that could have called for the Delta force!

  11. HL Says:

    The press failed to mention if there was a “shoulder thing that goes up” found om the premises.

    ““This is definitely a big danger, because they’ve been under there so long,” Balcar said. “They’ve rusted, they’ve been exposed to the weather, elements outside so we definitely want to get them disposed of as quickly as possible.””


    You know.

    Brass, rusting.

    Exposed to the weather under a house.

    And obviously a “big danger” because … because he has no possible idea what the hell he’s talking about.

  13. Sigivald Says:

    (Oh, an in the parent story: “Just last week, the bomb squad spent about half an hour disposing of shotgun shells found there.”

    This city has way too much money on their hands, or the bomb squad is really bored.)

    Guess more of those Northern Yankees are moving down here to Texas and don’t know Sh*t.

  15. mikee Says:

    The neighborhood in question is a lower income area, with mobile homes mixed in with small, older single family homes.

    It is not surprising that the residents were startled to find that a previous owner had left something dangerous behind; I’d expect at least tarantulas, giant cockroaches, or rats under any house in the area. That is not to slight the inhabitants in any way, they may be from a Central American, non-gun-owning culture rather than from a Northern Yankee, non-gun-owning culture. Both would be startled by things that might go boom.

    That said, if it was .40cal and 40 years old, I’m impressed, as I thought it came out around 1990.

  16. mariner Says:

    It might have been 10mm (.400 in.) instead of .40 S&W.

    But that was introduced in 1983.

  17. mariner Says:

    I wonder how much of the county they’d evacuate if they looked in my house.

  18. richard Says:

    The date he saw was probably the price…$19.76

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
