    New "RIP" Ammo

    Would like to hear everyone's input on this new round? Especially from the legal point of views..

    Home of RIP Ammo | G2 Research

    There's a couple reviews on their site, a couple more I searched, and YouTube..

    So let's hear it?

    Right now it is another gimmick round. Manufacturer will make sure advertisement is only going to show what they want. The real test will be on the street. Then and only then will we know if it is a viable cartridge.

    As to the legal aspect of the round. Hard to tell. It will depend on the DA or in a civil case the plaintiffs lawyer. I'm sure they will paint the person using it as blood thirsty with a desire to kill.

    Personally I would never carry a round called "RIP" any more than I would carry the "Zombie" rounds. Anyone who has been long enough to recall the fuss made over the Black Talon being "Cop killer" bullets knows what I'm talking about.

    I'll use standard factory rounds that I can prove are used by dozens of police departments in my state.

    It looks totally BA IMO, but looks aint everything. I've been carrying and using proven rounds for years. If I were looking for something more attractive, I guess I'd never keep a GF for more than a few weeks. More to life than the current fad, and to what expense? The engineering and the math is quite interesting though. From a legal standpoint? Carry any ammo you want that will see you through tomorrow and seeing the sunrise. Nothing more important than that. Your own decisions make you and keep you alive. What's a silly notion going to do for you?

    lame gimmick with a vicious name that can and will be used against you in a court of law.

    I agree on not liking too aggressive names for defense products. Like calling a rifle model 'assassin'.

    From the limited videos I have seen it shows fragments exiting the gel. block and going all over the place. No thanks, I'll stick with a bonded core that dumps all the energy into my target instead of dividing it up between my target and everyone else in the vicinity.

    I think we should call it the RIPoff round.

    If 9 fragments are so good just think about how good 12ga #7 3" shell must be. Yes someone will buy it and that's the whole point of it's being produced. Actually you cold just slice the average hollow point into 9 segments and have the same effect for far less money.

    It's an interesting concept, but unproven, and the marketing is somewhat questionable (I know their muzzle energy claims on the website were apparently incorrect, not sure if that's been updated).

    And, yeah, calling it RIP is just a bad idea. Remember who will probably be on the jury if something goes to court; I can't imagine convincing a soccer mom that carrying "RIP" ammunition is the mark of a responsible and humane person.

    I learned while I was mulling it over that the only store that sells it is in AR. They get about $2 per round for it. I want to test it but I am not going to use it. ANyway, they have not got it in .45acp. It only comes in 9mm.
    A 9mm might expand but a .45acp never shrinks.
