G2 R.I.P. self defense round

Anybody get wind of these bad boys yet? Look to be a pretty nasty little pill if you watch the video on the link. Looks like it could have some failure to feed issues possibly. I heard they are 9mm only but are looking to produce other calibers. Price is around 40$ for 20. www.g2rip.com

Re: G2 R.I.P. self defense round

Saw the videos...my first thought was FTF issues are a possibility too...


They do look nasty and seem to perform very well....but till they become "the standard" they won't be in my guns....I can just see them getting ripped apart and the perfectly in the right shooter looking out to be a bad guy carrying a gun loaded with big bad scary bullets designed to rip to shreds...same reason many of us won't carry reloads for self defense...not saying I agree with such things...and rather be judged in court than being buried...

I can't wait to see videos of the 12ga....I can't even imagine that!

Just another gimmick.

Yep!

I looked at the claims and doubt it would work as claimed in the real world.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

I'm inclined to say gimmick too. If you would ever have to use one in a self defence situation, the prosecutors would have a field day with it.

Its kind of a big deal.

Re: G2 R.I.P. self defense round

Cutting Edge bullets has been making a similar bullet for a while now..........it is a copper hollow point with the same type of frangible petals on it, a more typical looking bullet........they are CNC turned, and they are a PA company.......they are called PHD bullets

Maybe in a revolver? Doesn't look like anything I'd trust in a semi.
