    Other than that it's as expensive as helll? Really have not heard nuch about it, personally I think it's just a hype that not worth the money you will pay for it. Stick with whats proven on the streets!

    As has already been said, all hype.

    I like Corbon. Especially their DPX round! Not extreme shock but great penetration!

    I thought I saw some 20 round boxes of 40cal for $7.95 and I almost crapped my pants. I fiqured I'd get some just to try out at thet price. But it turns out it was a 5 round box of .223. I was looking in the 40 ammo section on the website. Turns out it was around $29.95 for 20 rounds.

    Yep, it is all hype. I think this is the same company with the "cheesy" ads in the gun rags. The ones with the swat team guys. I learned a long time ago.....if it sounds to good to be true, then it probably is.
    Why Ike, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Ike. I know! Let's have a spelling contest!

    Kinda like that "Fang Faced" stuff. The product of a marketing "genus".

    I'm very leary of the $1.50-$2.00 a shot stuff. It almost has to be way,way,too good.------

    Yeah. One of the local PD came in and was telling us that they did all sorts of testing, probably just read the hype, and decided to use this stuff. Great. Now my tax dollars are paying for ammo that goes for $2 a pop.

    Just frangible ammo with a lot of marketing hype.

    I will have nothing to do with this stuff as I view the "Air Freedom" and "carried by the nation's best" names and statements to be a direct marketing ploy off of 9/11, and nobody should make money off of that. Period.
