    Default Favorite Gun Myths

    Just for some fun, let's hear some of your favorite "gun myths." I will post a couple of my favorites as an example:

    1) A shot to the wrist/ankle/whatever extremity with a .45 ACP is instantly fatal
    2) The .45 ACP willl knock you down if it hits you on the tip of the finger.

    The .45 is a very effective round but these are just a bit much.

    I don't want to get into the gun control myths here, just the myths about certain guns/calibers that you find amusing.

    Guns kill people.
    Every gun is either an AK47 or Glock.

    Being shot will make you fly 10', no matter if its a .22lr or a .50 cal.
    CC'ing makes you either a nutjob, paranoid, or under a direct threat.
    My way is not better, it is just mine, your way is not better, it is just yours.
    Carry what your comfortable with, there is no "Supergun" Carry how your comfortable, open or concealed, so you have it with you when you need it

    The 5.7 x 28 round is the same as a .22.

    John Moses browning designed the 1911 w/ the specific intent that it be carried cocked and locked.

    Glocks are plastic guns and can easily be carried through a metal detector at the airport.

    Be very careful of what you post here. In a similar thread I once posted that the State of Maryland had sensors placed at the state line on major highways that could pick up the fact that you had a gun in your car when you crossed the line and immediately notified the Highway Patrol so they could stop and arrest you. Three different people wanted to know more about it and two called me a liar. A few tried to add to it and defend me but I really couldn't tell it any were serious or not. There were a few that fell hook, line and sinker.

    A man told me many years ago that if you told someone anything with a straight enough face they would believe you. For some people you don't even need a straight face.
