    Really?

    Exploding?

    What utter and complete twaddle.

    They are gimmick rounds designed to seperate the gullible from their money.

    Don't waste your money. They don't penetrate deeply enough to do what you need them to. If your goal is to inflict a superficial flesh wound on your attacker, then this will get the job done. If your goal is to stop the threat, stick with a proven ammo.

    I agree with the above. It seems there are more gimmicks coming out all the time. Self defense is not a game and you don't need or want gimmicks.

    Actually the Glaser Safety Slugs have been around for a very long time.
    I think at least 30 years possibly longer.
    It is not a "new" ammo or new concept.
    I believe that way back when it was first released the bird shot was encapsulated w/ a liquid Teflon and the cap plug was a harder flat composite material as VS an inserted round Polymer ball.

    I had some of these loaded up in my .357 Mag way back in like, 1995. The selling point was that they would fragment in living tissue while breaking up after minimal penetration of Sheetrock/drywall. I lived in an apartment then so it sounded great. I shot a bullfrog with one and it exploded. I was sold.

    Then I read about a law enforcement officer who somehow lost her service firearm in a confrontation with a big biker guy. She drew a backup weapon .38 while the criminal was trying to get the officers handgun to shoot. The shot she fired prompted him to surrender, but the biker was uninjured, except for a scuff mark on his heavy leather jacket.

    They are fantastic at blowing up bullfrogs and melons.

    If memory serves, these were developed for the Original Air Marshal program. The idea was to NOT penetrate the interior of an airliner

    That's the legend; never heard if it was true, though.

    However, Air Marshals are using Gold Dots the last time I heard.

    GLASER Safety Slugs

    Hmmm, many years ago I took the FAA Rule 108 course for flying armed. They basically said don't worry about putting a hole in the airplane, worry about putting a hole in the pilot.

    There were guidelines about how to do that, but ammo selection wasn't an issue. If you put a hole in the fuselage, all it would do is make a loud whistling noise until someone slapped an in-flight magazine against the hole.

    To be fair, I haven't yet had a chance to try this. Thankfully.

    I think the movies go a bit overboard with people being sucked out when the cabin becomes depressurized

    I should have been more clear... There were guidelines as to avoiding putting EXTRA holes in the pilots.

    Apparently they are satisfied with the ones they currently have.

    Glasers are basically a specialty round with a relevant but narrow use. Low penetration high stopping power. They have exhibited a good track record for stops and even sparked an inmate lawsuit. The plaintiff complained that the round had a 100% lethality rating thus making it inhumane. Apparently until pointed out to him by the court the contradiction did not dawn on him. I never said they were the sharpest tools in the shed.
