    Have you heard of those GLASER Saftey Slugs?

    http://www.dakotaammo.net/products/glaser/glaser.htm

    ..lemme know whatcha think.


    " BLUE: Glaser BLUE uses #12 shot compressed into a solid form. The Glaser BLUE produces immediate energy dispersal into the target, reducing the possibility of over penetration and creating abrupt stopping power. The numerous projectiles disperses outward generating an effective wound cavity.


    SILVER: Glaser SILVER is made up of #6 shot. With the Silver load, you get much larger segments; deeper penetration and controlled energy release."

    Good for straight-on shots to the chest.

    Little penetration if you hit an arm first, or the angle of incidence puts the bullet on a path where the vital organs are deeper than the penetration of the dispersed pellets.

    Also, I've come across at least one report of a defense pelvic shot where an x-ray showed the pellets dispersed up against the pelvis. But they didn't break the pelvis; thus the bad guy didn't go down from that shot like he might have if a .40 or .45 had broken it.

    I recommend studying up on the desired characteristics for defensive handgun ammo. You'll quickly come across explanations for each characteristic. Once you understand the importances yourself, you'll be able to evaluatefor yourself.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    ya. sorry - guess i was trying to take advantage of this forum and the experinces of others. I noticed this ammo is like $13.00 for 6 round pack. Was just trying ot get some inside info for now, rather than burning the money.

    Thanks for the advice. i'll see what i can find..

    ""It appears that they do not work as intended.

    And they would work decently if your target was behind wall board.

    Inadequate penetration in a less than standard viscosity block of ballistic gelatin.

    About 7"

    They are not worth the money."" - THX

    "the penetration of the tested round against a bare gelatin block is wholly
    inadequate when viewed in light of the FBI minimum penetration depth" -Brass Fetcher Ballistic Gelatin Testing

    Glaser silver out of a 44 mag would be a whole different animal than glaser blue out of a 38 I'm thinking.

    Well, first that was a 9mm. The problem with the safety slugs, is that they are intended to not penetrate walls. And with the 9mm it penetrated walls easily.

    Deformed it so it acted like a FMJ round.

    Does not work as intended.

    Therefore not worth my money.

    Now as far as doing damage, yeah I would expect that a .44 mag would do lots of damage with a Glaser Safety slug.
