    This subject may have already been covered so don't tear into me if it has but I just want input and thoughts.

    G2 Research has released a new 9mm round called the R.I.P. which stands for "Radically Invasive Projectile." It's essentially like a Black Talon but has individual spikes that spread out to 6" in diameter. The ballistic gel tests are impressive and definitely prove to be effective for self defense. What do y'all think? Would y'all use them in your CCW?

    I saw a pic of this on fb today. I want to see actual ballistics tests of it vs Hornady Critical Defence in tests involving clothing, auto glass, and whatever else they think I may shoot through to get an uber leet sniper kill.

    Agreed. They need to test against any and all possible material for realistic use in multiple scenarios.

    Or just get black talons. Like me.
    :->

    I would but they're illegal for us peons to buy and Dallas doesn't have any more to spare. Plus the RIPS are nastier than the black talons I'm pretty sure.

    Black talons aren't illegal, they just are no longer produced.

    There are better options out there now. This seems like a gimmick that would lead to poor penetration.

    I suppose I should have worded that better. They're not illegal but they changed the case to brass and renamed them to Ranger-T and restricted public sale to law enforcement.

    As for the RIPs, I doubt they're a gimmick. You sure as hell wouldn't want to get shot with one and that's pretty much the point, to stop the aggressor.

    Gimmick. But go ahead and buy some and be the baddest cat on the block.......until the next boutique projectile comes out with unsupported, hyped claims - and buy it.

    I cant wait to get this ammo and make my enemy even more dead than critical defense makes them.

    Why would i just want to hit them in the head when i could hit them in the head and cause 8 tiny pinholes at the same time?

    Clearly this is the best ammo ever invented.
