Default Falsehood Debunkers

That's how we differentiate ourselves from Mythbusters.

Submit a firearms myth. Something that seems almost plausible.

If someone has knowledge of the myth, post. What we won't accept is what your friend told you, unless you were there, and witnessed this firsthand.

Example: "I heard the Taurus Judge will fall apart after x amount of rounds."

Joe Bob submits: "Yeah, my friends did that. He told me so." Wrong.

Joe Bob submits: "Yeah, I was at the range with my friend, and when we left, the Judge fit in his pocket, in pieces." DING DING DING! Correct.

Submit a myth.

So to start it off, I don't hunt.

A guy told me that he used to take a .22 deer hunting. He would stalk a feeding buck, shoot it in the lungs, and the buck would flinch, but keep eating.

Lungs would fill with blood, buck would drop.

Is this possible? Is it ethical?

That guys an idiot.

It's also unethical and illegal to shoot a deer with a .22lr.

My friend did surprise me when he dropped a deer when we were squirrel hunting like an idiot. He shot it the neck and it dropped right there. I left him there and we no longer hunt together.

Don't use a 1911 for carry. They are unsafe to carry and go off all by themselves if you drop it. Plus it's an outdated design and your purposed would be served better with something glockish.

Hogwash. The multiple safety feature on the 1911 will not allow it to be fired unless all safeties are off and your finger pulls the trigger. The design is over 100 years old and a remarkable piece of engineering by J M Browning.

I know of a guy who was told that JHP's were not defense rounds because the box of ammo did not say Home Defense. Plus, the HD's are always lighter grain than FMJ's.

I've heard that even if you are only hit in the thumb, a .45acp will kill you because it's so powerful.

Really.

I have heard that if you drop a Remington 870 shotgun that it is possible it will fire even it the cross bolt safety is on, is this true?

Mine is along those lines. If you hit the hammer of a 1911 (whether you hit it or drop it) the gun will go off. Kind of why the old westerners carried on an empty chamber.

This one may have merit.

I was told that .25 FMJ is a better defense round than HP, simply because the underpowered round needs all the penetration it can get.

Makes sense.
