The SIG P320 is a 9mm handgun, .177 is a pellet gun caliber…which is it? Was it an air gun or a real gun.

Sig Sauer makes pellet guns that look like their most popular handguns, including the P320 and P226.
This guy looks like a real piece of work

Handgun? IT WAS A BB GUN! The breathless reporting by the hoplophobes is amusing, as always.

Top notch reporting! The average person has little knowledge of cartridge calibers. Regurgitating a description of the “weapon” is fine because it’s factual, but the uneducated anti 2A population only sees “handgun”. That usually translates into “fully semi automatic assault weapon”. I’m a former county cop, I’ve seen this plenty of times. Honestly, the story would have been so much better and more humorous if you stated “local tweaker demands unlimited bread sticks using a stolen credit card and a BB gun”. Still factual, and yet funny. Regardless of your views, we all can laugh at that…agenda free.

Did anyone catch the bail?!?!? $2,000.00 which equals $200.00 cash…. Sounds typical for St. Joe County Libtards…. Two charges of theft and having a “gun” so to speak and a $ 200.00 bail so he can back on the street?!?!…. Well done…. NOT!
