4 comments on “On Ant Guns: Maybe One Day

  1. A quick Google search informs me that an ant can carry .2 grams. Another google search tells me that a loaded 9mm would weigh about 1,162 grams and a single bullet would weigh about 8 grams. If you scale all that down to what an ant could carry the bullet fired from an ant gun would weigh .0014 grams. A single grain of sugar weighs .025 grams — or 18x more than the hypothetical ant bullet.

  2. I respect your police work, Wes.

    To recap: ant assassin? Probably ok. Ant army? Could be in some trouble.
