There are a lot of articles and discussion forum threads on barrel twist rate for AR-15s. So why am I writing one? Well, some of the information on the web is very wrong. Additionally, this closes out comment threads we've had here touching on this topic, EMail exchanges I've had with readers, and personal conversations I've had with shooters and friends about this subject.

HENRICO, Va. (WTVR) –Ruth Hunter, a 75-year-old woman, said she was tied up while State Police invaded her Henrico apartment.
She said officers told her during the raid what they were looking for, and court documents also show the information. She said she had nothing to do with the investigation.
Virginia State Police said a drug investigation is what prompted a Henrico County magistrate to issue a warrant for an apartment in the 5600 block of Crenshaw road.
The woman claims that officers ultimately arrested a man who lives two doors down from her.
“I thought someone was breaking in to rob or kill me,” Hunter said.
Seconds after her front door flies open Hunter said she heard a voice yell “Police!”
“…Took my hands with a tie-thing and said ‘You’re under arrest’ and started asking questions,” she recalled. “The more I told them I didn’t know these people, the more he continued.”
Hunter said that police left her apartment and went two doors down, while she was left handcuffed with a zip tie.
The fiancé of the man arrested says she was there at the time, and asked CBS 6 to hide her identity
“Just so happened they came to the apartment and they got it mixed up,’ she said.
State Police cite an ongoing drug investigation as why they can’t comment any further.
Ms. Hunter doesn’t say, but I suspect the LEOs pointed rifles at her head. They can’t comment any further because they screwed up, and we wouldn’t want the public to get wind of things like this, would we now? They may start to question why we have to do raids like this in the first place.
At 75 years old, it’s seriously in doubt that she posed any threat to anyone, much less the police, and the fact that she was zip tied is obscene. Hey, but at least the LEOs got to go home safely at the end of their shift, and that’s what’s really important, right?
