With a red dot on it.

If I had my choice in fighting shotguns, I'd urge Chiappa to make their triple threat model in 3 1/2 inch 10 gauge variation. I'd dub it "the gummy bear" and target it towards the rural, bear country gun owner. I'd also have the same model with breaching muzzle brake for tactical timmies.

I agree, red dots are silly. Triple barreled 10 gauges are the new hotness  :P.

Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

Well... my mocking the red dot was more about putting it on a red dot, than at red dots in general...  For tactical situations and rifles, I'm sure red dots are the way to go (unless your eyes rule them out, like they do for me).

Just seemed... redundant, I guess, on a shotgun in a tactical situation.

Do they even make RIP shotguns slugs?!? Doesn't look like it... so why are they using shotguns in their ads? FFS.  :facepalm

The other shotgun is BENT.  LOL.
Yeah, these rounds are so badass they bend space-time. Get with the program.
I'm not saying you should use an M1A for home defense, but I'm also not saying you shouldn't.

Rubber prop gun? They didn't trust Tacticool Timmy there with a real one.

I have a co-worker who swears his RIP ammo penetrated surplus SLC police vests.

 :rotfl

Yeah. Sure it did.

RIP ammo is actually the second name they came up with.
apparently RIPOFF ammo was too truth in advertising for the focus groups.

My current life goal is to own a TOZ-123.

Yes. When the question is 1911, the answer is "yes". ~HVS

Why on earth would he claim that? For goodness sake, it's main selling point is that it doesn't over penetrate.

He tells good stories, but you take them with a shaker of salt not a grain.  :shrug

If y'all are range buddies, ask him to demonstrate for you  ;).

The backpedaling would be epic.

I just don't shoot enough. Work and school full time for both eats a lot of spare time. Then the warm glow of my computer lures me in... :shrug

This is actually possible.   
Even with this ammo.  When the tines break off, the remaining projectile has a bit of a point to it... And old Kevlar might still be heavy, but the fibers are like old sunbleached rubber bands... brittle.  They don't catch bullets so well anymore. 
Even a big fat shotgun slug can go through them... I have that on a video.  So a 9mm or .40... I'm not shocked.  I'm not impressed either.
