Seems like a pretty stupid statement, but I am in CA so what can I expect? Here's my random question; Can anyone show me a low powered pistol?
Hows this??? 22 short starter

Does not get much lowered powered than this- the 2.7mm Kolibri pistol. Has a whopping THREE foot lbs of muzzle energy!

If ice is less dense than water why do batteries weigh more when they're frozen?

That doesn't sound right. In theory, water should weight the same in it's frozen state, as it does in it's liquid state since mass cannot be created or destroyed. If it does weight more, that extra mass has to be coming from somewhere.
Are you sure it's heavier, or does it just feel heavier? Cold causes object to condense, so they feel heavier, but they're not. Foil could be a good example. A 12x12 sheet of foil feels lighter than a 12x12 sheet of foil wadded up into a tight ball.
This is also why steel boats float. If all the weight was focused at one point, it'd drop faster than Obama's credibility. Since the weight is spread out over a large area, it becomes less dense, and more buoyant.

it feels heavier because it is solid, not liquid

It may just feel heavier, I didn't actually get a scale out and weigh them. But they definitely seem quite a bit heavier.

density has nothing to do with weight. Water become less dense when it freezes ( the molecules rearrange in a lattice and no longer mesh together) thats why it floats and why it expands to fill greater volume. In theory you could have the same mass of water in liquid, solid or gas forms and the only difference will be in how much volume is displaced.

Random question. Why does BBL stand for barrel in all the catolouges? Is it an acronym and if it is what does each letter mean?
