Same story. Dead beat one horse town, I had to get out. Now all my "friends" have been doing drugs, been in jail, and a few are dead.

Not enough to occupy a young mind in that town.

It would've probably just been on .45's. I think it'd be unnecessary though.

Someone had in their signature line a while back...

I don't think hollow points are necessary when your shooting bullets the size of small children.

thats correct. the only ones that adhere to the geneva convention are the USA, canadia, western europe. all our enemies and potential enemies could give two farts about it and routinely violate the accord...

its an outdated way of thinking and needs to be tossed on the ash heap of history along with socialism marxism communism unionism and liberalism

Hollow points would be a waste of money for pistols as rare as they are fired. For rifles, I understand the difference in wounds a hollow point makes vs Nato, but for the most part, you aim center mass at a human target with a .223 Nato and they'll fall down. If we used it in combat we'd have to train with it and at that point, in this recession, the monetary loss would affect training. I'd rather have trained Marines putting NATO rounds in vitals than half trained Marines putting hollow points in arms and legs.
