Even without the loading issues, I would suggest setting aside a less lethal weapon and putting distinctive markings on it.
I have, they (command) won't let me.
Regarding the malfunction - its not a feed issue. Its a loading issue, which is odd. I can load tube after tube of dummy rounds without problem. But, I have seen (and had reported to me) multiple issues of physically loading more than 4 rounds of the Super Sock in a tube.
I'm thinking its a weight issue. I'm going to bring in my calipers and scale to measure the rounds, and compare them to loaded and dummy ammo. Ill post back, and maybe we can figure this one out. In the meantime, if anyone has heard of this issue with this ammo, let me know.
