    Note to self....

    Note to self: If you're ever working in a government welfare style apartment block revamp, and one of your workers finds an old S&B 9mm cartridge behind a radiator, never ever jokingly give it to the general contractor as a 'souvenir'. They will shut down your work area, carefully put the cartridge back where it was found and call the security company on the off chance that the cartridge (which everyone has now handled a ridiculous amount) might explode and maim someone on the job....

    Jeez, the guy's from outside city limits, I mistakenly thought that might equal common sense.

    I was in HRM last summer helping with cleaning up a section of the Bowater trail. Someone found a couple unspent 12ga shells and everyone was so uptight. They called the DNR officer to come get them, he said just toss 'em in the garbage. They were rusted completely, probably wouldn't even fire if chambered. No one wanted to touch them. It was funny to watch but I could tell these types weren't in for a lesson, so I didn't say a peep - just backed off like the rest lol

    Sadly , that is what some people in Canada have become....the Nanny state where people are scared of anything , and everything firearm related . No doubt in that General Contractors mind , that 9mm could have went off and killed 50 babies right in their cribs if anyone dared touch it......

    The next one's getting pitched off the roof, and I told them that right to their faces.

    So, to further the story, it ended up being MB Housing's security detail that came down to deal with the 'incident'. I happened to be nearby in the lobby when he showed up asking 'so where'd they find the gun?'
    'Well we never found a gun, we found a bullet'
    'A bullet?'
    'Yes, a bullet'
    'You're ####ing kidding me, right?'
    'No, it's a real bullet'

    Security guard gets disgusted look on face, proceeds up several flights of stairs to the 'crime scene', pockets said bullet and leaves.....

    Another exciting day in core area Winnipeg...

    Lol, love how it turns from a cartridge into a firearm in one easy phone call. Thank goodness the call didn't have to be forwarded again, or you might have been strip-searched by the bomb squad.
