I am old but not that old. You must still have a good memory.

The Brenneke slug was invented in 1898 but the Foster slug was 1931. Foster's are the most common but I much prefer the Brenneke for animals.When I was in Alaska I was strongly advised to use Brenneke slugs as they have much better penetration on large thick skinned animals like bears.

Colorado has the same law and it has not prevented civil actions. It does put one more obstacle in the path of the 'leaches' but it is not an absolute and it does not completely shield you from civil suits!

I was born and raised in eastern CO, Kit Carson County.
I moved to CoSp in 1970 and lived there (26 years on the CSPD) until 1999.
