Can someone tell me what is the difference between a jail and prison?
At the most basic level, the fundamental difference between jail and prison is the length of stay for inmates. Jails are usually run by local law enforcement and/or local government agencies, and are designed to hold inmates awaiting trial or serving a short sentence. Often "short" is designated as a misdemeanor conviction versus a felony. Prisons, on the other hand, are typically operated by a state government or the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP). These are designed to hold individuals convicted of more serious crimes, typically any felony.

Would it be considered a threat if i tossed somebody a live 45 acp round and said, "They next one's gonna move a lot faster."?
It could be, but take my advice and don`t blow anyone else away just because you heard those words from his mouth and got tossed a cartridge. You will be charged with some form of homicid. You know how you mean`t them here when you typed them out in your question. A lot depends on previous engagement.
I have never witnessed someone that used a knife or gun that displayed either of them beforehand. Usually the attacker starts cutting or shooting after some form of verbal exchange without warning. Maybe you danced too close and too long with his gf or wife...no bad talk needed...his decision to cut or shoot needed no verbal threat.
Most verbal threats or "cool" suggestions with props(tossing cartridges accompanied with a one liner) remain idle if you don`t overreact.
