Blue on Blue

Conservative outlet complains about another conservative outlet getting details wrong on firearms, while getting a lot of details wrong on firearms.

I sorts can see what the Fox story is trying to say that the PJMedia story brings up.  Fox did a poor job explaining, but their point stands when you decipher it.  But then PJMedia starts comparing pistol bullets to "a rifle’s larger and faster bullet..."  well... yes, faster...  But 230 is still a bigger number than 165 or 55.  And I don't think the PJMedia guy has ever field stripped a Beretta.  The slide is... not usual...

Sheesh.  A pox on ALL of our pedantic houses!

Few reporters are "gun people." I had seen worse articles in print. Also, the part about "knockdown power" came from the .mil spokespeople as I understand it.

"But 230 is still a bigger number than 165 or 55". You are not comparing the same calibers. Compare like calibers and you will find that rifles will almost always have bigger and faster projectiles.

Yes, Robb, but that was not what he was doing.
