An accident waiting to happen...

#1 Post by Awake » Wed Mar 07, 2012 12:37 pm

Shotgun shells that have no projectile but can still blow your head off. What could go wrong?
a) "Oooops, I didn't think this was too close"
b) "Oooops, I thought it was one of those blank cartridges"

Are these things actually more dangerous than 'real' ammo?

I couldn't find a price, but odds are that 00-buck is a lot cheaper than this novelty crap. Zombie or not, I wouldn't want to rely on it. I wonder how bad all that extra powder will foul up the barrel. This is the equivalent of buying a rear spoiler for your '88 Honda Civic.

:wtf: Can someone tell me the point? wouldn't 00 be better and cheaper, and wouldn't something like that risk overstressing the barrel?
If I hear "crony" capitalism one more time I'm going to be ill. Capitalism is capitalism, dog eats dog and one dog ends up on top, and he defends that place with all the power he's accumulated.

The picture from the article makes the brass cups look like your regular field load cups. Your 00 shot shells will have a lot more brass for the powder.

I don't get it either.

All right, listen up, I'm only gonna say this one more time. (No, I'm not.)

Zombies don't exist, you're just being marketed more crap you don't need. Snuggy and a bottle of snake oil with your Zombie bullets, Sir?

Zombies don't exist, you say? I beg to differ!
