Default Poison Frog Rounds??

So I'm watching this Discovery Channel program where they are talking about how deadly this poison frog neurotoxin is and stuff and how the indigenous populations in the Amazon use them to coat their arrows to make them guaranteed lethal.

Then I thought to myself, "Why don't we learn from this ancient practice?"

Would it be feasible to "paint" the inside of your hollow point rounds to make them a little more "potent"?

Sure I guess, if mr. 230grains of warm an fuzzy isn't up to the task, might as well smear some frog juice on there to be safe.
Of course you'd have to carefully handle the poison frog jizz while applying to the rounds, wear protective equipment while loading or handling ammunition or cleaning your gun, and then just hope and pray it doesn't run down and out of the barrel while holstered and seep into your bloodstream through your skin and kill you.........
but other than those few minor issues, I think its a great idea.
Where can I buy some frozen frog juice concentrate? No pulp please.

I just shoot 230gr. Unobtanium rounds and don't mess with that amateur stuff.

Seems to me that painting your rounds with poison shows serious malice aforethought.

Thanks for the hook CA up, Unobtanium rounds are hard to find here, who knew supporting membership had this this kind of network. I expect you got my PM concerning the aluminum magnet I am willing to trade for more rounds.

Don't listen to these old guys they are way behind the time.

Now what you need to do and what I do is this.

I get the poison dart frog poison and puffer fish poison and I mix them in at a 1:1 ratio. Now that is a very potent double whammy right there. You then fill the hollow point with that combo and coat the tip with paraffin and beeswax to seal it in there. Now to make it look better and offer higher velocity coat the in copper gasket material and roll it in powdered graphite this will give you a cool looking black bullet and offer much more velocity because the powdered graphite is very slick.

good luck and stay safe my friend.

This was in no way a serious post. Anyone who thinks of doing something this stupid should have not only his right to own guns removed but should have his junk kicked till it turns black and falls off. No wonder he likes the University of Michigan.....
