George, I have been saying that exact same thing but in much simpler terms for years.  If you don't mind I would like to "copy" and forward that explanation to some people in my Department.  What you just explined should be required reading at every "force" training. 
Yes I live in California.  Please dont hold that against me.

From a marketing stand point, they're doing great. Guys at work won't shut up about them. Seems like everyday I've got another guy running up to me to tell me about this awesome new round they found.

And PT Barnum is alive and well...he's selling scammunition now...

I should hope not. Mobs of rogue woodworking tools would suck to repel.

In their video it fragmented in a liquid filled balloon. I don't believe it would penetrate very much

Word has it a box of 20 sold on Gunbroker for $300. Dunno if that was a legit buyer or not

Even if it worked as stated (BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA), it's an extra $10k easy in lawyer fees for all but the cleanest good shoots.

Maybe it really is the Next Great Thing.  I'm skeptical but wake me when they make it in 357 magnum.
CaliforniaOf course I carry a gun!  It gives me a chance against the sinners and protection from the righteous.

OK I do have a question.

At 2:31 in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJGH7cDFw7c

--What is that 9mm Carbine. Doesn't look like the lower of a Just Right carbine. Nor does it look like a Theuron Defense carbine. It's not a mech tech or other Glock conversion because it feeds ahead of the grip. Not an AR either, least not that I can tell.

It looks like one of those conversion gizmos, that replaces the slide and barrel on your pistol to make it a carbine, and adds a stock.

The mag is inserted forward of the trigger.

Heh, so it is. My bad.

Thought the wire loop on the end of the grip was the end of a mag. D'oh.

It looks like an AR-based 9mm carbine.
