Them's some mean .45 loads!
Think I'm gonna have to track a couple of boxes down and try them out.
I've got two boxes of the new Taurus .45 acp solid copper rounds, but haven't tested them yet..

Yeah, I just placed an order for the .380 PBs -- wish I had included a couple of boxes of the .45 DPXs in my order. I have a feeling they'll do much better than the "dreaded" Black Talon rounds of years past...

Hey, that's right, there's a show tomorrow! Thanks flatrock, I'd forgotten! 8)
I dunno if it's just me, but the Goodman shows seem to be getting kinda lame lately. It's as if everything you saw at the last show is at the same place at the same price at THIS show.
Ah well... at least there's that one-of-a-kind, cosmolinish smell that screams "GUNSGUNSGUNS!"
That alone is worth going for.
