    Non-Toxic Ammo



    I saw this on Cheaper Then Dirt. I about died laughing

    You know, you wouldn't want to poison the intruder.

    This is almost as funny as rubbing an alcohol swab on the arm of a guy getting ready to be executed.

    The "non-toxic" ammo is pure ripoff econut stuff. Is it the law to use it in certain uses yes, but frankly but from my experience its more toxic.
    Non-toxic, Green ammo, lead-free; all of it is just as toxic if not more then the lead ammo grandpa was shooting in WWII.
    Sorry but Tungsten cores and other stupid additions in ammo are just that Stupid!
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Honing the knives, Cleaning the longguns, Stocking up ammo.

    Lead pollution in the water. Ducks and geese feeding off the bottom and picking up what they think is gravel for their gizzard. Then eggs don't develop right. Was't that long ago ducks and geese were on a serious decline. Since the no lead law there are more ducks and geese than I ever remember.

    Because all the shot pellets that miss land back in the water. Since ducks are bottom feeders they (as the greens say) eat and are harmed by the lead pellets on the bottom of the swamp. I don't believe it, but that is the reason.
    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    It's like lead based paint. Some nitwit eats paint chips in public housing, becomes disabled, and now the rest of us have to suffer with sissy latex paint that flakes off with a good wind driven rain.

    It wasn't so long ago that these same kinds of feelings were voiced over the DDT ban because they didn't believe that Eagles could be affected by a bug spray to the point of near extinction.

    We know differently now.
