    Never seen it before. I, too, would be interested in reviews. Don't know how that nylon tip will effect the feeding.

    Looks like just another frangible round to me. And a very light round at that. Seems to defeat the purpose of carrying .45.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Never used it and I have no intention to. At 50 bucks for twenty, I would pick up a 50 rnd box of Winchester Rangers and call it a day. Besides, unless you are an air marshal, I dont see a real point to these in the home. A properly chosen round will minimise a pass through while maximzing damage for threat cessation, and will do it for half the cost of these. Until I see terminal ballistics showing these things are the best thing since sliced bread, I will stick with the tried and true.

    The only thing it lacks is the word "Zombie" printed somewhere on the box in green letters & an ex-Navy Seal to endorse it. Who CARES if an airplane skin gets punctured? There's usually not anyone out there to over-penetrate into. It's the Ginsu Miracle Knife of SD ammo! Where's my order-now free offer?

    My opinion is that I have better options available- HSTs, PDX1s, Gold Dots, XTPs, Golden Sabres, etc.

    If you lived on an airplane and frequently had questionable visitors while at altitude, those would be perfect. Beyond that, I can't see that much use for 'em.

    If I lived on an airplane and had questionable visitors, frequent or not, I believe I have other major issues to deal with.

    After seeing that failure to expand video, I'd say you wouldn't have any issues other than gravity if you used those inside your airplane!

    Exactly what I was thinking...

    A 125gr .45 round? No thanks.

    I will never, ever, buy anything from "Extreme Shock" based solely on the absolute lies they use in their marketing. If you want to spend $2.50 a round for a conventional frangible round and a whole basket full of BS, it's your money. Not for me, thanks.

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
