    That's because Cirillo used bullets similar to these to kill actual human beings. Read his book & LEARN something. :wavey:

    Jim was a gentleman - Mas still is (mostly....)
    Got to hang out w/ Cirullo in 2005 for two days at The Snubnose Summit held @ Police Hall of Fame Titusville, FL in December 2005.
    That's me on the left.
    Jim was a very good yarn spinner to say the least. It was a privilege...........

    And of course he died (as so many warriors do) in a tragic accident and not due to enemy action or in combat.

    What I am getting from the ammunition discussion is that it was the man, not the machine. He hit what he aimed at, reliably.

    Chapters three and four explain the "Pin Grabbers" and Cirillo's patented bullets.

    Pingrabbers and the slotted Safestop boolits.
    JC is a legend, IMO.
