This is kind of an interesting story, but the endorsement by Irlene Mandrell really makes it post worthy.
|Harold "Bubba" Beal didn't think so. He has invented a bullet he has coined "The Bubba Bullet", a type of frangible ammunition. That means the bullet breaks apart on contact with a solid surface, and it can be calibrated to turn to metallic dust when it strikes the thinnest metal, or beefed up to pierce thick layers of steel and bulletproof glass.|
"Imagine a round that could revolutionize airplane security as federal sky marshals can fire it without any fear of ricochet or pass through, or fear of hitting an innocent passenger or penetrating the aircraft's skin. Terrorists might think twice," Tyser said.
yser said it would also decrease the danger of hostage situations because a policeman could fire a Bubba Bullet, penetrate thick layers of glass or a metal car door, and deliver a hit on a criminal without the risk of hitting innocent bystanders. In recent tests at federal proving grounds in Virginia, a standard .223-caliber Bubba Bullet inflicted a wound cavity in a soap block that was equal to the size of a baseball.
"It's one of the most precise rounds I have ever fired," said country music star and famed women's outdoors activist Erlene Mandrell.
