    New Munitions: Silent Bullet Rounds, Man-Marker, Rounds, Target Bullet Rounds



    SNIP

    Ultimate Training Munitions’ products are designed to be precisely that: purpose-built firearms training devices, ammunition and accessories designed for military, law enforcement, and professional training organizations. They make several kinds of blanks, marker rounds, and a target bullet round. The really cool part? You use your weapon with only minimal and temporary modifications, not an unfamiliar or unrealistic training weapon or heavily modified attachments.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    Looks like the stuff they call simunition. I thought it wasn't available to the public?
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Razor, the article talks about simunitions and how these products are different. From what I understand simunitions are available to the public but as an extraordinary price.. a bit too steep for your typical school or private class.

    This article doesn't say (or at least I didn't catch it if it did) what the cost and/or availability to the public is. I would love to get something like this (especially the marking rounds) if it were reasonable in cost.

    UTM make good stuff. I believe they are slightly cheaper than Sims, but still not what I would call "cheap." Don't know about their availability to civilians...
    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.

    Plus with sims, I thought you needed a different barrel for pistols and BCG for AR-style rifles (like an aluminum BCG)
