    Anybody remember Clint Eastwood's In The Line Of Fire?

    The BG used some sort of ceramic pistol with ice bullet ammo, IIRC.

    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,

    The pistol was ceramic or some sort of polymer/plastic. The bullets though were just plain ol' cartridges (remember, he hid them in a rabbit's foot to get them into the banquet). The ice bullets were from the movie Most Wanted.

    Is it a sign of obsession when you remember the guns and ammo (and the major "hollywood gun screwups") from almost every action movie you've seen?

    IIRC, it was also more or less a derringer design, really more of a "zip gun". That's a far cry from a semi-auto handgun. It was also only meant to fire a couple of times at the most.

    OK,

    We don't have access to one. But from a government that can keep fleets of aircraft (stealth aircraft, SR-71, U-2) secret for years do not doubt that there are guns (not necessarily a Glock or even in the form that we we say it's a gun) that our "State Department" guys use that contain no metal. Ceramics have come a long way, and I believe if you can make a ceramic knife, you can make ceramic guns.

    A ceramic knife is a hell of a lot simpler than a ceramic/polymer gun (the ancient Mayans had obsidian glass knives). Now a single shot, derringer or pepperbox design would be much easier than a revolver or semi-auto. Doable, but I would not want to be shooting it.

    Besides the ice bullets, don't forget about the frozen meat bullets from CSI. They discovered the bullets were meat when they pulled a bovine maggot out of the body. Gotta love Hollyweird.

    The whole concept (ceramic gun) would be really cool.......If they did make one, Id wear it in my Ninja Outfit!

    Hey,

    They had snow bullets in the book "Deception point". Improvised Munitions weapons were used to make ice projectiles.

    Well Zack, and you other guys that work in a gun store...next time one of these guys come in looking for what their sister's girlfriends husbands uncle has.....sell it to him!

    Now I can't remember what guy told me his brother the cop has a ceramic Glock.
    He's probably a guy I don't want to have a conversation with again anyway.

    Part of it has to be guys out there that have a gun, and then invent these stories for friends and family that just don't know any better.

    Hey, that sounds like fun.
