Oh, NO!!! 300 MPH!!!

Drudge has this picture and link to an article about the worlds smallest gun that fires deadly bullets at 300 mph.

(Here is the article)

Oh! My! God!! 4.53mm bullets traveling 300 mph!!!! The world is coming to an end!!

What a bunch of sensationalistic crap!!

That 4.53mm bullet is actually the size of a pellet used in a pellet gun (.17), and that whopping 300 mph is equal to 440 ft/sec which is half of what a pellet gun would spit out.

So all the hype and world ending BS, this gun is less powerful than a simple pellet rifle.

Thanks for the heart stopping scare Matt!
