    The Enlightened Peoples' Benevolent Protectorate of San Francisco has reached into the future and banned a device so destructive as to have ....seemingly mythical properties. Get this.....there is a round out there called the Black Talon. When it hits a human target, it actually comes alive and tears chunks of flesh out of people. But San Francisco is ahead of this game, and they have ensure that no one in that city needs to be worried about such .....mayhem.

    Wow. Talk about missing the boat. Of course, I'm sure their courts will interpret the law to include anything "substantially similar". I.e., all hollowpoints or at the very least Ranger XST's.

    Sometimes I am truly amazed at the stupidity I see on a daily basis.

    San Francisco is truly the land of the socially, morally and mentally bereft.

    While you may find any and every prurient entertainment there, you will not find logical thought and motivation.

    It is the blight of my state and the center for degradation and decay.

    That being said, it does have some awesome scenery and a couple of impressive bridges.

    Weren't Black Talons a particularly EVIL hollowpoint round that, if you shot someone in the pinkie with one, it would disintegrate his entire body?? -- and weren't they marketed somewhere back in the 1990s, before they were, uh...given a new name, or something???:confused::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    What a great name for ammo... The Black Talon! That has to be in the top ten all time of great ammo names. This legislation is what happens when people that are ignorant with regard to key issues try to regulate things that they don't understand.
    ETA: I hope that Mythbusters does not try to define "ballistically similar"

    They are no longer black in color, and now bear the name Ranger Talon SXT. Much safer ;)

    Wow! They aught to expand that program and ban other things -- the Atari 2600, "New Coke," Yugos -- and other stuff that hasn't been made in 20 years!

    It was 94 when the Black Talon craze hit.

    I tried to order 200 Black Talons in 44 mag. I got my order in just a snit too late and received NOTHING!

    The ammo then hit the resale market at prices commensurate with what people are trying to get for 22 rimfire right now.

    That was a long time ago and I wouldn't have thought about BT at all except for situations like this where somebody brings it up.

    Does it not seem like Dr. Evil giving briefings on his new plans, titled "The Alan Parsons Project" and "Preparation H"?

    I would love to see the T series compared with the Federal HST.

    They were occasionally referred to as "black felons". They weren't stellar performers either. Winchester basically repackaged them into the SXT, which stands for "Same Exact Thing".

    I still have a few 9mm from back in the day; shoot them at hogs at my camp from my SIG - of course buy the SXTs as well!
