    Now you are getting my creative juices flowing! How about testing the best ammo for turning Kung Fu Chicken into Kung Pow Chicken? I think maybe a custom 12 gauge load with miniature Ginsu knives and some dragon's breath.......:rotflmao:

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    I checked out that website and my first thought was "snake oil"..... but they are one of the very few types of ammo that have been outlawed by the gun owner friendly state of Florida (possession is a third degree felony). Maybe there is something about that design after all?

    the one thing flechettes were good for was direct-fire artillery shells like the 105mm and 155mm "beehive" round; you can't get enough velocity
    from shotguns.

    From what I've read, this is quite true. The flechettes as sold are supposedly pretty ineffective. Problem is, evidently the folks who passed the legislation didn't know that and thought they were. They're illegal for fear they'll penetrate kevlar armor.

    I seriously doubt it. He appears to be a one man show with a cell phone video camera and a YouTube channel.

    Hmmm.......maybe I could start my own "academy" and teach people how to blow up watermelons with 12 gauge slugs? I have a GoPro and a VEPR-12, that ought to get me enough followers to make me feel important. :jester:

    Some of you may not realize that all of the stuff on YouTube is about viewership which translates to money. It doesn't matter if the videos are smart or the information is accurate, the more people that look at it, the more money they make. There are actually quite a few people making a comfortable living from posting stupid crap on YouTube and everybody wants to be a YouTube star.

    That could be you 10canyon53. A little truth smothered in gobs of snake-oil and big words,.... and BAM, you're a Youtube star! Just remember to have a Starbucks coffee and a bag of Doritos nearby for product placement.

    You'll need your own catch-phrase, sometime like "Schlammy, Dammy!" every time you shoot something. Remember, it's all about pulling the wool over the eyes of folks toooooooo lazy to actually learn about guns.

    In others words,

    Afterwords you'll be singing, "Silver and Gold, Silver and Gold,..."

    At the end of every segment you can promote this place and drive up traffic. Heck, the gubers might even learn something useful.

    Hickok45 is the guy who is really living the dream. All he has to do is walk out behind the house and shoot about 500 rounds through anything that tweaks his interest, and he's a big hit. People like me will watch just to see how many jams and misses he has in any particular gun, and whether or not he enjoys shooting it. My hero. Of course, he does shoot pretty well, for an old plinker.

    I know if I swallowed my pride and abandoned my principles, I could make lots of money online. Of course, I might have to chant myself to sleep by saying, "I'm better than other people, I'm an entertainer... I'm better than other people, I'm an entertainer... I'm better than other people, I'm an entertainer..."

    I enjoy Hickok45 immensely. His product placements are interesting too.

    Alas! My local gun range will not permit the shenanigans required for me to be a YouTube star. I guess it will have to wait until I can afford to buy enough property to build my own gun range......That's ok, it will give me time to perfect my Mall Ninja moves before going in front of a camera. :rotflmao: I also need to come up with some new tactical sounding words and catch phrases.... My 17 year old son wants to be a movie director, I bet we could put together a first rate YouTube cash machine. :tooth:

    Fisheadgib, yes I am well aware of how YouTube works. My son keeps explaining it to me in an effort to get me to let him try to make a living that way. I cruise YouTube strictly for entertainment. Once in a while I do run across something useful though.

    Invest heavily in 12.11 boots! They're twice as good as 5.11's and even add a little extra.

    I'm sorry folks but I have to quote my favorite Mall Ninja here just because:

    Zorba is probably already putting together his outfit. At the next SE shoot he'll be wearing a western shirt and skirt, pink boots and a little cowboy hat.

    You guys gotta do it!

    Make them love you... Make them hate... but don't let them ignore you!

    If you guys can do that, you'll be rock-stars online. :applause:

    Actually, all joking aside, the Monkey has a good point here that we should all be cognizant of our surroundings, our potential targets locations and what is near or behind them. Like family members, neighbors past the walls as well as the type of ammunition we use and what could happen if we miss or it passes through our intended target in a life or death situation.

    You can't recall a fired bullet.

    Absolutely.

    30-something years ago I was teaching night classes in auto mechanics for a Community Education program in Nashville. The guy on security duty was a high-ranking Nashville PD officer who strolled around the school building in uniform on his off duty time, making a few extra bucks from the school system. He was also a firearms training officer. Nashville had just switched from revolvers to Glock high capacity 9MM's. I asked him why they had gone to the unheard-of at the time 13 rounds. His answer sort of shocked me- - - - -"Well, now we can throw away a few shots while diving for cover without having to reload!" Now, bear in mind- - - -this is coming from a seasoned officer, not some trigger-happy rookie! He is training the rookies in this mindset, however! I'd hate to be an innocent bystander when a gunfight was going on involving people with that kind of attitude!

    My own thoughts:

    1) He's been watching two many movies.

    2) He's trying to be militaristic about it.

    3) He's been watching too many military/John McClane movies! (Cover Fire, Now!!!!)

    I use to work with officers in Arizona that were like this. The amount of knuckle-headedness I saw was amazing! Everyone knew who the idiot's were but no one would speak up for fear of being "that guy" who ratted out his fellow officer. Their solution was just to stay as far away from the idiot's in the department as possible and maybe they'll eventually get fired.

    I've said it once, I'll say it again. Just because someone carries a gun for a living doesn't make them an expert!
