Of course it's not a bullet. Spent bullets don't look like that, bullet casings don't look like that.

There's no such thing as a "shotgun bullet".

There are shotgun bullets surely....? Or is it because they're called shells?

Yep, they're called shells. Shotgun ammunition comes in buckshot or slugs packaged inside the shell casing, handguns fire your standard bullets (usually full metal jacket, rarely hollow point) and the spent cartridge casing is ejected from the chamber and hits the ground.

That is a CO2 canister that cyclists use to re-inflate their tyres on the go if they get a puncture.

:yep: That's where they usually whip their cream as far as I'm aware :bl: Also in fields and other remote locations. It's because the whip cream canister might explode so you have to do it outside.

If you see a canister like that in the open, 95% chance it was some kid using nos for a brief high.

Actually you may be right. This recent footage from a cream-whipping accident exposes exactly what sort of risk these brave food professionals take when preparing your meals. Maybe we should think more carefully when baristas ask 'do you want cream with that?'

it one of several things possibly
nos- used for a quick high or to whip cream but these are often aluminium this is iron as it got rust on
co2-use in air powered weapons (paintball, BB or air rifles) and for inflating tyres as mentioned above there are iron as it is more pressured

I wouldn't advise picking those up. Kids where I live use them to get high on - they're little gas canisters. Usually see loads in the local park around the benches.

It's used to get a high from. Usually people use a cracker on the cannister. The gas usually enters a balloon and people breathe the balloon to get a buzz off of. It's not actually a bad buzz SWIM has tried it.
