    Bullet found in doorway
    By David Williams
    LETHAL: The .22 calibre bullet found in Walthamstow High Street on a market day morning (D6W1001)

    LIVE ammunition has been found lying in the doorway of a busy high street shop.

    The .22 calibre short round bullet was found at the entrance of the 99p Stores in Walthamstow High Street on Wednesday morning, November 1.

    Haroon Khan, who has a firearms licence and is a member of a local gun club, was alarmed to discover live ammunition in a Walthamstow doorway.

    The bullet, of Swiss origin, was still in its brass casing, complete with enough gunpowder for it to fire itself.
    continued...

    Mr Khan said that if it had been struck hard enough or exposed to heat it could have gone off.

    "This sort of thing should not be lying around. It was live, primed and active," he said. "But rather me pick it up than a little kid.

    "How can you feel safe when you are finding things like this on the street?

    "To get hold of one of these is not easy. You have to go through a scrutinised search, you need a licence and you have to belong to a club."

    Ammunition of this kind would ordinarily be used in a small handgun or pistol, and both can be owned legally under licence.

    But to leave strictly controlled goods out in the street would be enough for a firearms licence to be revoked.

    The bullet has been examined at a Metropolitan Police laboratory and details about it kept for future reference.

    A police spokesman said: "Recovering firearms and ammunition is a priority for the police. We take the same view of ammunition as we do of a gun.

    "If it goes bang, it is still lethal."

    Police are treating the unattended ammunition as a crime. Mr Khan alerted them at 10.16am, and they arrived at his shop to pick up the bullet at 11.32am.

    I love how its a huge deal, and the round was sent to a laboratory for examination where they will waste thousands of dollars, yet it took the police over an hour to respond.

    :rofl:





    This is the true story of George Phillips of Meridian, Mississippi, who was going up to bed when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light but saw that there were people in the shed in the process of stealing things. He immediately phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?" and he said no, but explained the situation. Then they said that all patrols were busy, and that he should simply lock his door and an officer would be along when available.

    George said, "Okay," hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police again.

    "Hello I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people in my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now cause I've just shot them all."

    Then he hung up. Within five minutes three squad cars, an Armed Response unit, and an ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence. Of course, the police caught the burglars red-handed.

    One of the policemen said to George: "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

    George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

    I spilled a box of 9mm in a rental car and didn't recover all of them. It would be entertaining to see the person that found them.

    If they work at a rental car place they probably find that kind of shit all the time.
