slap's are old rounds - our mil buds don't use em (different good stuff they use).  it was a common practice to booby trap such rounds over the years, especially rounds outside of the US. that one could have been a booby trap or a foreign counterfeit sneaking back in.  also the red plastic shroud can crack in the case damaging the round integrity.  The hardened "round" could improperly contact the barrel with disastrous results.  this looks more like a hand grenade going off.   the rifle he's using isn't particularly safe to be used with unknown loads.  more like a pipe bomb rifle, sealed breech.  if he's reloading or buying reputable manufactured rounds it's fine. glad he made it.

Sort of expected that.  They are trying to pull a fast one, trying to get away with several years of fraud.

They are not your father's NRA and i blame Wayne.

Yup. Let it die, give your money to GOA or SAF (if you must; I'm too cheap to donate to anybody, but SAF does get roughly 17 cents from me a year through Amazon Smile!).

I stopped giving my money to NRA long ago. I had heard rumors long before anything had hit the fan.

I guess i should add:  Its not like i expected Wayne to go hungry or have to drive between presentations in a 1970 beetle. And sure, there are some perks to being the big guy of a large entity like that, but he took it WAY too far.

When the lurkers speak up here, I realize how far I am behind on The Sanitarium... 

I guess I have lurkers too. Ig, you need to add a "log-in" log.

I guess ATF has flip flopped gain on pistol braces.  Effectively banning them once the new rules come out.

The NRA's main goal was to ask for money more for the NRA.

I think in the beginning, this was not the case.  But once Wayne got in there, yes, i agree.
