    Why? Is that not what the bullet is designed to do? Seems pretty factual.

    Textbook explanation of JHP bullets. Didn't the Black Talons also have hooks or claws cut into the jacket?

    Least they aren't calling them cop killers.

    What's sad is that back in the day, Winchester changed the name to SXT (and I think stopped coloring them black) precisely BECAUSE of idiots in the media making much ado about nothing... and they're STILL calling them "Black Talons".

    Unless he used a vintage box of Talons from the 90's, but I somehow doubt it.

    I responded to the direct quoted posted by the OP....sorry that bunches up your panties for some reason. Anyway, the article in its entirety is simply the highlights of the testimony by the Pathologist. It contains little of anything else in it, no fluff, just condensed statements.

    The reason LE carries and many pay good money for quality self defense ammo for their personal guns is because it performs better. Simply doing what a hollow point does best, expanding and causing greater tissue damage. Guess I missed the 'outrage train' on this one.

    First they slip through bullet-proof vests because they are tefflon coated. Then the talons spin like a buzz-saw in flesh.

    And don't forget that the first generation Glock can't be detected by airport metal detectors!

    I tell the guy at the shop I want a couple boxes of Copper Talons. He laughs and gives me few boxes of SXT or Ranger T which ever he has in stock.

    I still have a box of original 9mm black talons in the safe. I think it is a box of 50. But don't tell the liberals that...they'll pee their pants.

    Be right back, there are some men in black at my door.

    I've been liking most (if not all) of the quotes you've been posting.

    Good to see you're creating some of your own :thumbsup:

    The fact that Pistorius didn't put a round in his own head after he realized what he had done shows that he intentionally killed her or he's a retarded coward.

    Anyway, is the op figuring that Black Talons were getting unfairly characterized? Some bullets are better for killing and that's why we all pay $.65-$1.00 a round for HST, Gold Dots, etc.

    I try to not watch too much news. I get pissed off pretty easy these days. I already am taking a blood pressure pill. if I watched the news as much as some I would probably stroke out.
