    Yuck! You're right. Gimmick-y. I think I'll give it a miss as well.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    It would be great for shooting pop cans in the field...the radial arms would knock the can right over....people would think I'm a superfreak knocking down cans with ease at, say, 30 yards.... then when I would load the gun with regular FMJ's for them....

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    I traded for another sig today and ended up with a box of liberty USM4 ultra defense. They are 50gr and claim 2000 FPS. They also claim 12" depth 5" wide channel at 25 meters. I will also be sticking with Federal HST

    Mi-Stinger™: Less-Lethal: purpose of this Less-lethal version is to provide the shooter a bullet that will give him tactical advantages to gain control in a difficult situation by delivering a debilitating sting, with virtually no risk of killing the live target person or animal. This category of bullet will be made of low density materials (e.g., aluminum, plastic, rubber, etc.) and fired at a relatively low velocity. It is designed to inflict pain/bruises/minor lacerations, but not penetrate deeper tissues.

    Stop, or I will give you a debilitating sting!

    Ah, no...

    Same here.

    The problems with a round like that are far too numerous to list here and quite frankly it just ain't worth it IMHO. What is it with all these goofy "re-inventions of the wheel" these days?

    No LE agency worth their liability policy is gonna field it, the design is clearly untested (except against watermelons, like that matters) and quite a bit more expensive than the proven premium JHPs like the HST, Gold Dot, PDX1, Ranger "T", etc., which makes me wonder just what this latest foray into the realm of Rube Goldberg ballistics has to offer besides lining the entrepreneur's pockets with silver.

    Sure you say that now, but when the zombie werewolf vampire water mellons come looking for you you'll wish you had our secretly developed supper duper mellon stomper rounds.
