    I was going to comment that revolvers don’t come in 9 mm… until I googled it to be sure.
    They do. Oh well.
    And no-one to strip-search.

    And how does the Inspector think the bullets get loaded into the clip of an automatic? They are pushed into the clip with the thumb. Then the clip is inserted into the gun.

    You forget the little arrow in the second panel. The thumbprint is on the end of the casing which you don’t need to touch when loading a clip, but have to touch when loading a revolver.

    As for the word “cannon” – you can use the word “gun” for “cannon”, but not the other way round. (It is quite common in German, though.)

    This is one of Werner’s better strips…

    I’m totally clueless on this matter.

    My quibble is a 9mm Parabellum (or 9mm Lugar, 9×19 NATO and so forth) case does NOT have a rim or flange that extends past the sidewall at the rear of the case and does NOT have the extreme tapering or ‘bottle-neck’ at the front of the case.

    And yes, though not overwhelmingly popular, revolvers chambered for 9×19 do exist. They are not rare enough to call a foul on this one.

    By the way, the forensics man would have known the case was fired from a revolver; the markings on the case during firing and extraction are different than the marks made by a semi-automatic firearm.

    The only reason a casing would be on the ground if the guy with the revolver did it, would be if he put it there as a red herring. They stay in the gun until they are removed for reloading.

    Totally bogus solution. The shell casings for a revolver and a semi-automatic are totally different. One will not fit the other.

    9mm revolver aside, this picture is of a snub nose .38.

    Gee, I thought this one was pretty simple. When you load a clip you don’t push on the back of the cartridge, you push on the side to push it into the clip. This is a comic and you can’t get super technical when coming to a solution and cartridges for a pistol whether automatic or revolver are the same. There’s a difference between rifle ammo and pistol ammo. Have a great day!

    You are wrong. Look up .22LR. That is the most common ammunition in the world and can be used in pistols, revolvers and rifles. The cartridge in the second panel is badly drawn, but the idea is valid.

    Wouldn’t most clips be produced by gun manufacturers in highly automated production so no fingerprints. Only crazy or cheap people bother manually feeding a clip.

    It’s not a clip, it’s a magazine. Clips are those little medal strips that some catridges come on for easy loading into the magazine
