Thread Name: BS: Guns on planes
Subject: RE: BS: Guns on planes
A while ago, not long after Sept 11, I saw TV footage bragging about the types of guns that would be carried on planes. It fired a shot whose name I don't remember, but was basically ratshot. A "pellet" of tiny balls that disintegrated when it hit the piece of cardboard prodly held by the guys demonstrating it... so it wouldn't penetrate the presurised hull.

Plance may be full of holes, but when the luggage door fell off a plane some years ago, several passengers got sucked out due to the decrompression.
