Indeed.  That would be HOTY material!

Should've added another lead.

Lead theft leads police to ask for lead leads.

stealing lead? really? might as well be stealing cinderblocks.

Police looking for people seen moving slowly from the crime scene.

/We don't use it for bullets and weights for nothing.

Was it in Leeds?

That's nice, subby, but can you use the word 'that' five times in a row in a grammatically correct sentence?

Their children will be really stupid, and have prognathous jaws.
 
2013-05-03 04:15:37 PM
That's plumb crazy.

Too bad it was the Hawick town hall and not this town hall:

Did they check the chimney for the perpetrator?

Metal prices are sky high right now.   Lead, copper, and brass are all at or near record highs.  

This, not TSA hoarding, is one of the reasons why ammo is so farking expensive right now.  $25 for a 50 rd box of 9mm ball?  Jesus H Christ on a pogo stick.

I thought it was because of Fartbongo takin' our guns.

Should've mentioned Led Zeppelin, subby...

Well that and all the assholes who go and buy up entire shelves of calibers they don't even shoot so they can flip the ammo for double on Gunbroker.

/Amusingly I just bought 100 rounds for a gun I don't have.
//Going to buy me a Tokarev this summer and it's hard to find anything but ancient Russian surplus ammo--and even that is scarce right now because of the crunch.

Maybe they just want to test the public's mettle.

no ironic tag?

Yeah, don't even get me started on that.

Obama and Feinstein have sold more guns and ammo than anyone, ever.

Cthulhu_is_my_homeboy: Going to buy me a Tokarev


Just gotta ask... Why?

I've always thought of the Tokarev as the Yugo (or Zil) of sidearms.   The Russians do make some damn effective (if butt-ass-ugly) weapons.  The Tokarev isn't one of them (IMHO).   Only reason I'd think of getting one would be to complete a collection.

But then, a man's taste in weapons is like his taste in women... subjective, highly personal, and not always entirely rational.   If it makes sense to you, go for it, dude.

dabbletech: That's plumb crazy.


I should have known that somebody would have already said that. I was going to go with "the police are plumb out of ideas" but that would have been less funny.
