Subject: RE: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
No Bob, he used hollow point in the handgun, which most handguns today are designed to use exclusively ... guns like the glock are not safe to use hardball ammo. And yes it expands and kills, that is why it is called deadly force. In the AR in Nam they use exclusively like in the current conflicts full metal jacketed which are metal piercing. Not because it causes less damage but because it shoots through troop transports and cinder blocks and body armor. Hollow points are useless in the military. The reporting of ammo is new people who don't know weapons. It is not the ammo, it is the weapon the ammo goes in. Example. Swat teams use hollow point .308 rounds in their sniper guns. The .308 hollow point is probably the most used deer round there is besides the .3006 ... Now is the .308 a military ammo yup is it a sportman ammo yup ... difference is, the weapon it is used in
