I sent a letter to the editor of our stupid little news paper today. It just wrecked my breakfast when I read it. Here is the letter. "I normally let Misprints I find in the paper just go as a misprint . BUT! I just can't this time, sorry. The recent fire at our shooting complex Is a very bad deal and I don't want to diminish that fact. The way you reported it was very misleading in my opinion . The report "A bullet ricocheted into a wheat field. A small fire was ignited by the stray bullet". The fact of a fire is not disputed. BUT a lead, or copper clad bullet can't start a fire...That's just Bogus! An allusion straight from Hollywood. To make a spark there has to be a ferrous metal involved. Like a steel bullet , or iron backer board support ,even at that the spark only occurs at the point of impact. NOT out in a wheat field. On occasion a lead/copper bullet will cause a spark if it hits a very heavy steel backer board but there again AT THE POINT OF IMPACT. How the fire started ? But it could not have been from a ricocheting bullet." Am I wrong?
