Inverse Markley’s Law

Via email from Toastrider we have this:


For some reason I haven’t been able to find any commercially available ammo. It must be that a high demand for it hoovered the shelves like a lot of the other ammo. This would appear to be consistent with the abundance of large rifle ammo, moderate availability of .223 ammo, and scarcity of .22 ammo. Thus I claim we have proof that if the size of a gun is inversely related to penis size then the caliber of the gun owning man in this country is much larger than average.

  1. Yikes. .10 caliber? What’s that good for, assassinating rogue mosquitoes?

    • It would be good on large spiders at least. Maybe OK on mice, with really good shot placement.

      I wonder if recoil is “stout, but manageable”.

      • The hardest recoiling gun I have is the NAA mini-revolver, when loaded with high velocity 22 LR. So yes, I could believe “stout”.

  2. In response to Oleg:

    I started to wonder about the purpose of that tiny knife in your picture. But that reminded me of “Gates of Fire” — a book I highly recommend, by the way — and a scene in which a Persian soldier, speaking to one of the Spartans who will soon fight at Thermopylae, is incredulous at the short (18-inch) swords the Spartans carry. How on earth can you fight with such toys, he asked? The Spartan goes chest-to-chest with him and answers, smiling: “The trick is to get nice and cozy.”
