Last week the Muskegon Chronicle added to the anecdotal evidence that the venerable .30-30 Winchester–despite it’s long track record–is in fact a little underpowered for use on modern television sets.

It’s unknown what show the man was watching. And, you’ll be shocked to learn, he was intoxicated. Now, I know that none of you would ever get drunk and shoot your television set with a deer rifle, but if you did…
