    Absolutely - I felt like this was Ron Popeil trying to sell me some crap I could spray on scalp to cover up my thinning hair. At first, I actually thought it might be a parody...like the old fake commercial on SNL where they were selling a razor with like 10 blades "Because you'll buy anything". Other than a potential option should lead disappear from ammunition eventually, I do not see the need for this product and the hype only magnifies that sentiment.

    So each round is made from a copper rod on a cnc? And while they say over penetration is not an issue, their videos shows the trocars doing exactly that. On top of that, particularly after penetrating a barrier, expansion was hugely inconsistent according to the videos. I'll stick with one of my standbys - federal hydrashock or hst, hornady critical duty, or speer gold dot. Beside, I'm not switching back to 9mm from .45.
