Has anyone tried out the G2 Research RIP 9MM 96 Grain Hollow Point Ammo?? I got a box from a friend and I'm going to try them out in my PCII but a little hesitant on firing them through the Solo.Any feedback would be appreciated.

In Nevada its sugested to use what the police use! When they start useing so will I. Most use Speer Gold Dot GDHP.
I won't be using these at $2.25 a bullet either.I was just curious about them and split the cost of a box with a friend.I'm going to the range on Saturday to try them in my PCII but keeping it away from my Solo.As Chuck43 noted,the courts could have a hayday with a bullet that makes a 6in diameter hole in someone..

I agree. That round is a lawyers dream. Even if every other aspect of a shoot was considered legal and justified, the concept of premeditated murder would be front and center with these things.

Independent Review of G2 RIP

In the Georgia Outdoor Trader site I found a Youtube video of an independent test that was made on the G2 RIP ammo. It did not fair well in the real world. I'm not impressed!! :(:(:( Check it out:

For the price, I think it's just a gimmick. I'd prefer a good, solid, high-velocity hollow point that's proven.

You know, I have to disagree, respectfully.

The issue on any shooting is whether or not it is a good shoot. Type of ammo is meaningless. A type of ammo can't possibly be considered premeditated murder.

I also think that ammo is right up there with the mythical White Rhino.

In New Jersey it's a felony to own hollow points! I have been told or I read someplace(don't know how true) you can get 10 years per round you have! So depending on what state your in yes ammunition does make a difference!

OMG, the northeast politicians have lost their minds. The land of draconian laws.


Did they eve consider the hollow point reduces the chance of a through and through causing damage, in jury, or death of someone behind the intended target? They just don't get it (on so many levels.)
