    Question Question About Ammo

    Did anybody hear about making tracer rounds for hand guns?

    Ive bought Streaks, they're pretty fun. "Real" burning metal Tracers are something of a fire hazard.

    The military had some 45ACP tracer but I have never seen tracer ammo for handguns in the civilian market.
    I'm Mr Bad Example, take a look at me.

    With the wet spring we've been having, Probably safe outdoors. (Of course, No Fun Allowed if you're in Chicago or Cook County)

    In WW2 the navy pilots had tracer/flare type rounds for their 38 special revolvers so they could signal to rescue planes and subs
