Jimmy has an ammo box with 140 bullets inside and a 30 round magazine that is at 40% capacity loaded into the magazine well, plus one round in the chamber. He kills three terrorists using the two to the chest one to the head technique. He then uses bullets from the ammo box to reload the magazine to maximum capacity, but does not put a round into the chamber, assuming one is already there. How many bullets are remaining in the ammo box?

What is the most deadly firearm?????

The one weilded by someone knowledgeable, capable and willing to use it.

A full auto in the hands of an idiot is less deadly than a single shot in the hands of an expert.

All an idiot does is waste ammo and possibly get occasionally lucky.

And how does this information help solve the problem?

there's most definitely a problem. But the problem isn't guns, its people. it's just a whole lot easier to try to ban guns and pretend you're doing something, rather than to get it root of the problem - assholes.

I propose we nuke the entire world back into a radioactive stone age. It will reduce the number of shootings, traffic accidents, prison populations, etc. There may be an increase in genetic mutations, but it's okay. That's how evolution rolls.

You must be correct Girly, I was never that good at math really.

Apparently not when I'm drunk. Sober I think it's 100*(41-49)/49. Weeping

If it changed from 49 to 41, the percent change is 100*(41-49)/49 = -16.3% (yes, it's negative, because there was a decrease). If it changed from 41 to 49, then the percent change is 100*(49-41)/41 = 19.5% (positive because it's an increase). The general formula is 100*(new number - original number)/original number.

What he said.

If you look at the definition, you will see that it is arbitrary, even ridiculous.

The first is not an assault weapon, the second is.
They are both semi-automatic, have a detachable box magazine, and fire the same ammunition.

Neither is an assault rifle.

Well, duh. Black is scarier than woodgrain.
