    If one would ever use that ammo in a self defense situation, the civil suit would be a slam dunk.

    A 96gr gimmick 9mm?? No thanks!

    How is going to come apart to leave ''9 wound channels'' and penetrate 16'' ??? Oh yeah......... It ain't!!

    Maybe they do and we just can't see them.

    Are those projectiles "Fletchettes"? I've seen them used before, they didn't catch on then. Perhaps the new
    "R.I.P." marketing will appeal to the Mall Ninjas. I'll stick with Double taps.

    OK, NN get some and whack some water jugs and report back to us. :guns::guns:

    Hey it just might work, who knows. However, as mentioned, the name RIP would surely fall into a scum-sucking lawyers hands in a wrongful death lawsuit, no matter how "Good" the shoot was.

    It does look cool/wicked :yikes: don't it? Reminds me of some .45 ACP I saw that was called "Grippers" or something for shootin bowling pins in matches that would grab/bite the slick porcelain better.

    The advertising is gimmicky, but if the projectile peforms as well in actual flesh as it does in their ballistics gel tests, it will have nasty wound potential on target.

    Now that's just plain mean and inhumane to use the awesome power of a .410 on ballistic gelatin :yikes::rotflmao::rotflmao:

    I agree.

    That said, the video results on the gelatin look pretty cool.

    I'm generally not one to call shenanigans with no evidence......but calling shenanigans I yam!

    After watching multiple ballistics gel test in slow-mo, and comparing it the the block that RIP is getting 16" of penetration in......I don't think their using "industry standard" gel. A .380 ball round will usually penetrate a little over 10" to 12". RIP is trying to say that a round that starts out at the same weight, looses about half of itself as well as a tremendous amount of velocity upon impact, still retains enough energy to get 16" deep.......shenani-freakin-gans!

    But......but......but...... it "HAS GUN OWNERS DROOLING"!!!!!

    and........"is taking the market by storm and has gun owners all over the country trying to find where to pick some up."

    You guys better get on board or miss out on the next best thing since..............well..........procreation?

    You do bring up a good point about making sure he ballistics gel is "calibrated"

    It will just have to do with the cost and if I can find some, if it is reasonable, I'll get some and try it

    Not a chance....got waaaayyyy more important things to waste my money on....just more ammo that's designed to appeal to the under-educated shooter...."Yessir-ree Bob...this stuff not only kills them, it tags 'em and bags 'em".......anytime a company starts talking about "stopping power" they have done lost me...

    And 2 customers walk in asking about it. The guy that left 5 minutes ago was sold on it. He told me all about how the little fingers create new wound channels and everything.

    You know why you need multiple wound channels? Because you failed to put one of them in the right place to begin with.

    I think that multi wound channels with that copper shotgun sabot didn't work out either.

    Can you just see the heart attack that Piers Morgan, and his like-minded brethren will have when they get wind of this. :blah:

    Of course the manufacturers had to have the requisite automatic weapon in their video.

    I am most definitely not drooling over this stuff. I wouldn't use it even if it were cheaper than FMJ.
