    Anyone see the last CSI Miami? They were trying to chase down a rouge who was selling "special" bullets. These bullets were SO special, according to Horatio, that when they hit something "warm, like human flesh," they break apart, causing horrific wounds, but if they hit something "cold, like body armor," they instantly become armor-piercing rounds.

    So, how does the bullet distinguish between the heat generated by the chemical reaction and friction of its initial launch, the heat generated by the kinetic energy of its impact, and so on? In fact, I wonder how much heat is generated by the bullet's passage through the air?

    The only good part of this episode was at the end, when Horatio gets shot.

    Yoda, CSI Miami is entertainment, pure and simple.Reality is meaningless to cast,crew and producers.
    Best to avoid this miserable exercise in mediocre drama if real facts are your major concern.

    My question is, whats wrong with Horitaios neck? Hes constantly got his head canted to the side, does this come from shooting his NINE like a Gangstah? Does he have week neck mucles due to his parents not holding his head properly when he was a baby?



    Shows like this just lower the countrys collective IQ, IMO.

    I don't watch any fiction cop shows because they're all BS. Watch The First 48 on A&E if you want the real deal.

    They probably got the idea for the magic bullet from the Aquila IQ line...

    I like to watch CSI to see how wrong they are most of the time. Some times they are right, but even broken watch is right twice a day.

    There is some difference between fiction and fantasy.

    Isn't Miami generally considered a warm clime? Methinks body armor would be pretty warm if a guy was wearing it in that sort of weather. Even their made up world has plot holes.

    Sounds like that there IQ bulet should be called the Silly Putty bullet. Squooshy when pushed, hard when struck.

    +1 Count me in as a Callie fan. I can overlook the rest of the show because of her. :)

    every CSI Miami episode:pool party,half naked women,dead body....
    every CSI NY:rave type party,half naked women/trannies,dead body
    every CSI LV:Vagas night club party,half naked women/mob guys,dead body
    all 3 shows are corny,but I just can't buy David Caruse as a tough guy,even w/ the sun glasses.Gary Sinise,sure,but not Caruso.
    plus I actually know someone who works in a crime lab...guess what,he doesn't go on raids....no gun...no sunglasses even.....just a lab geek.and the women aren;t all hot.And the lab actually turns the lights on when they do work.reality is not like tv.

    I got to tour such a lab when in middle school for an AR class (Academic Resources). Yeah, they are very clinical (imagine that) with lights overhead and folks dressed for that environment. I did get to see arsenic in a suspension that had been used in a murder, as well as the ballistics lab where they test-fired weapons (the tech there thought it amusing to let us pick out spent bullets from his box).

    Nothing like CSI there, but then, that was in Mobile, AL, not Miami.

    Deriving ANY meaningful lesson about firearms or self-defense from a fictional television show is like learning astrophysics by watching "Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars".

    I watched CSI Miami until they did their first gun track to see who it was 'registered' to in their 'database'

    There is NO registration in FL(except for the 4473)


    I watched CSI NY until the episode where an assassin used an AR for a 800yd shot then screwed the gun apart and hid it in his car and then the CSIs just reassembled it completely by hands, barrel and all
