I was at the Miami Gun Show today and looking for some stuff, notably a stray box of 9mm or 45 RBCD ammo. I found my only box of 40 at a gun show about 5 years ago. So I go to this ammo dealer and I ask him if he's got any RBCD? He says: Never heard of the stuff...but lemme ask my partner. He's former Force Recon marine and he knows everything about exotic ammo. So he calls the guy over and I ask again. He knows all about RBCD and he says they don't carry the stuff. I ask why and he says they don't want the liability. It's extra LETHAL. Usually it's military SpecOps that go for it in quantity 'cause it's so expensive. That jives perfectly with the other endorsements I've gotten from buddies of mine in a variety of SpecOps components. The universal comment I get from the operators is: When it's ONE SHOT between life and ETERNITY...gimme RBCD everytime! That's a pretty strong endorsement. A lot of folks I know say that the frangibles are worthless, they'll stick to the proven technology of the good old JHP+P etc. But I figure the guys who lay it on the line in real world combat in places where the word reinforcement isn't in the dictionary...well they wouldn't steer me wrong.
