    Those things sort of sound like a P.T Barnum Special ("There's a sucker born every minute!") If things have deteriorated to the point it's necessary to shoot, I don't want to "inflict pain, bruising, and minor lacerations"- - - - -I want to blow the guy out of his shoes! That approach sounds sort of like our current policy for dealing with terrorists. Maybe they should call that stuff "ammo for liberals"!

    Yep. We talked about these awhile back. I think lack of penetration would be their downfall........

    Not grape shot, more like chain shot. Still a stupid idea in anything less than a 12 pounder.
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    Most new fishing lures are designed to catch fishermen. The same thought pattern went into the development of these rounds. The idea of self defense is to immediately halt aggression towards your self or another. In order to accomplish that goal, you need a projectile that will expand to approximately 1 1/2 times its starting diameter, and enough weight and velocity to penetrate through a major nerve center or cardio-vascular center. A design such as this will not accomplish that goal. My .45 acp 1911 Colt is loaded with 230 grain Winchester Black Talons and my 9mm Browning Hi-Power is loaded with 147 grain Winchester Black Talons. Both of these should accomplish that goal.

    Maybe somebody heard the phrase "take the wind out of their sails" and took it literally.

    This is not the dumbest thing I've ever seen, but it is the dumbest thing I've seen over the last week.
