    That's a Wildcat round right there if I have ever seen one. Did your smith use the right reamer to recut the chamber? Is your brass fire formed?

    No, It's a standard .45 ACP with a pushtack and some Gorilla Glue.

    I can't get them to fit in the clip.:(

    You are gonna have to single feed em. Looks like a good round for hanging posters from 250 yards away.

    It looks kind of like a DP round. You know, Drywall Piercing. They're illegal in California.

    I am concerned the rotational forces exhibitid on this projectile will spin the tack loose from the front of the bullet. This can be combated with the use of a bullet such as the Hornady XTP where the base of the thumbtack can sit inside the bullet and Gorilla Glue can form a bond on both the bottom and on the side of the thumbtack. We would also be geting one step closer to get this bad boy to magazine feed.

    Try seating the bullet far deeper in the case and use a lighter powder charge to combat over pressure issues.

    OK, I'm spent.

    BB, I am actually glad you brought this up.

    Just the other day I was wondering which color tack is best for SD or low light conditions?

    For low light conditions I would advise the use of red tacks as they act like a tracer round. For SD I would procure pink tacks so that you can talk smack to your assailant after you have dispatched his sorry @$$. "Hey punk, you just got nailed by a pink tack! Ha ha ha!"

    I'm in Texas, they aren't regulated down here.

    Although I did hear that they are trying to outlaw the clear ones.

    I'd get a hollow point and a hammer and jam the tack in the hollow point.

    It'd probably have better ballistics.

    Troy, if you were to fashion some kind of retractable flights similar to those seen on an arrow you might be able to get some longer rang out of those bad boys. I used to work in a ski and snowboard shop when I was younger and we got all hight tech with blow darts. We had them going straight through drywall from easily 15 yards away. Of course, these were not fashioned from thumb tacks.

    The piece of tubing I've got right now is only 14" long (which is the minimum I would go for daily carry :D).

    But care must be taken while target shooting. I "Robin Hooded" three in about 5 minutes, so don't forget your shooting glasses.

    BTW: I was shooting those at about 10 feet.
