Via email, this fascinating piece on what it takes to pass the test to be a taxi driver in London. I had an inkling, but the reality is just unbelievable.

I made it out to the range this morning. It was pleasant, sunny and in the high fifties when I got there, but it was clouding up by the time I left about forty-five minutes later. Three hours after that, pedaling home from lunch, it was about 45°F and spitting rain.

Incidentally, I ran some of Federal's 115gr "Range, Target, Practice" ammo through the same test gun that was having issues with the Fiocchi the other day. That Federal RTP stuff is normally pretty weak tea, but even it was averaging ~60fps over the Fiocchi ball.
