    Fun facts drilled into my brain about the m9 (which fires 9mm)

    Maximum effective range---50 meters

    Maximum range-----1800 meters so about 5100 feet given the conditions....ie wind hunidity and other forces

    It would be more like 30 degrees for max range, per Sierra.

    Also, air drag has a vertical vector which acts opposite that of gravity so the horizontally fired bullet would hit the ground after the dropped one.
