What is a plated bullet?

They are silver plated.. you know.. for werewolves!

Happy B-Day!

does not work on werewolves... only solid silver. It has to do with the amount of silver in the projectile and the amount of silver imparted to the werewolf.

Tests at the Cthulhu research Center concluded that silver plating was simply not enough. The silver plating tended to "Rub off" in the barrel, leading to an even greater loss of the pure silver. When used against a large werewolf, several shots with 100% silver rounds were needed for an effective takedown.

The chief tester, Mr Omar "Lefty" Cheatum, had this to say..."Oh yes, we shot alot of werewolves with the plated rounds and they were mostly annoyed." "when we switched to the full silver rounds, Oh, how happy were we"

Tis true.

Happy Birthday!! Mines coming up in another few weeks, I am willing to bet I won't get a single gun related item ... unless of course I get money. Gift money always seems to go into the gun funds.

For Christmas, my dog got me a Saiga chambered in .308. Good Boy!
For my birthday, my dog got me a S&W No. 3 in .44 Russian. Good Boy!
For New Years, my dog got me 1100 rounds of .22 LR Ammo. Bad Dog, I said, 9MM. But, with ammo prices being what they are, I got him a T-Bone.

My Birthday falls between New Years and Christmas. I love that dawg!

Happy Birthday!!

Happy B-Day :) Oh and I find filling the hollow point chamber of my rounds with silver dust then caping them off with wax delivers anough silver into the werewolf bloodstream to be effective :neener:

No joke about the weather here in the Rockies. Why did I commit to moving up in the mountains in the dead of winter anyway?

Anyway, reload one for me! Make sure it's... not special in any conceivable way... just like the others!

You say it's your birthday?!

OK, I'll stop now! :)
