Revolutionary bullet can shoot through plywood and jeans.
Interesting and informative article about these things:
tl;dr: they're absurdly expensive, don't work very well, and may be functionally illegal for serious self-defense purposes.
you mean to say C&C milling each individual bullet is impractical and expensive? well I never!
Not only that, despite looking like something approved for warcrimes by gunloving Cenobites, their shit penetration means that they actually wind up doing less damage than squirrel-grade .22 varmint rounds.
These guys are so smart that they can find amazing new ways to maim and inure someone to the point of killing them, but they can't find any way at all to stop people from killing each other.
I think Harriet is recommending blending different approaches.
HarrietTubman is right. A dead man can't buy your product. What you really want is a bullet that messes the target up thoroughly, leaving him with brutal scarring and a constant daily reminder of the power and effectiveness of your product, but stops just short of actually killing him. That way, your brand will dominate the target's mindshare when he eventually recovers and goes looking for revenge.
This definitely won't be used by criminals or psychos who want to maximize their kill count at schools, theaters and government buildings.
Gmork has stumbled on the revolutionary idea that most people who buy guns and ammunition don't go on killing-sprees.
-Slow clap- Bravo, sirrah! Bravo!
If only there were a way that a gun could help solve that problem..
If it can do everything they say it can, that is kind of badass.

Well at least the surgeon will know that the dispersal of shrapnel is predictable, so they will sort of know where to look for the 6 smaller metal needles in addition to the central slug mass.

What was the other Manly Bullet For Men(TM) thing that got yanked a few months ago? Its video was similar in execution and stupidity, but it quickly vanished after being torn apart by people who weren't blinded by how cool exploding styofoam was.
I think their marketing guy started with "R.I.P" and worked backwards to find a name that would fit the acronym. Cuz R.I.P. is what's on headstones. When somebody's dead. Like they will be if you use this bullet.
Gun fondlers are a boring predictable lot.
What the hell kind of law enforcement is this supposed to be? Who are you supposed to be? Judge Dredd?
One reviewer's quote: "I had an issue with feeding. I fired five rounds in this initial test and one of them refused to feed from the magazine ... The slide locked back, and the round hadnít left the mag. Thatís really not something you want to have happen with your self defense ammo."
The reviewer then goes on to replicate the damage profile of the 9mm RIP ammo with 22LR CCI Segmented Hollow Point 32-grain varmint rounds.
Well I know what to use if I ever get attacked by a water balloon, especially if it's wearing denim.
Ever since this came out there have been far less drive-by water balloonings by bikers wearing multiple layers of denim... and you gun control liberals want to TAKE this stuff away.
Jet Bin Fever
I never leave the house without multiple layers of denim covering my vital areas.
You know, I'm all for people owning guns and stuff but being the naive, simple minded guy I am, I think this is unnecessary. Might as well sell bazookas, because sometimes you gotta take out stuff like a buus, a building, or a bunch o'mo'fukas.
