600-Round Magazines

4th Feb 2013 posted in Resilience

For the record, Time Magazine printed a correction last week with regards to a graphic that accompanied my story about gunfights.

I had nothing to do with this graphic. It was compiled by Time’s graphics folks.

For what it’s worth: I agree it was a foolish mistake. I am glad Time has acknowledged the error.

The correction appears to be behind a paywall, so I’ll reprint it here: “In a graphic, we listed the price of a 600-round magazine but mischaracterized its use. That magazine is for an airsoft pellet gun, not an actual firearm.”

Embarrassing. Wish I had noticed it. Please stop the hating.
