When you draw and fire your weapon to protect yourself or your family, you want to be able to neutralize that threat without hurting someone else.

That is why the “Glaser Safety Slug” was invented.

The important thing about the Glaser Safety Slug is that it will normally stop the bad guy without endangering anyone beyond him.

This blue-nosed bullet isn’t very likely to go through the attacker and hurt an innocent bystander, or one of your family members or employees!

I keep my personal guns loaded with the Glaser Blue Safety Slugs. They are too expensive for target practice, but they are a lot safer to have around to protect your family and your business.

The stopping power created by the velocity and impact are mostly at the site of the wounding; the same as any other high-powered bullet.

The reason they are safer is that the pellets inside the jacket explode when the bullet has penetrated the target and almost all of the energy is expended inside, before it has had a chance to exit and travel on down the original target line.

Practice, Pratice, Practice

The proper bullet to use is only a very small part of the equation.

I was raised as a hunter, was on the rifle and pistol teams in college and had been qualified with several different weapons by the time I came home from Vietnam. I don’t have to think, just shoot!

The reason I mention this is that this kind of familiarity can only be gained through experience.

If you have to stop and think about anything, it will probably already be too late for you or the ones you are trying to protect.

Everything you do from the time you make the personal decision to fire your weapon has to be instinctive.

Find a good local firing range and a good trainer and put in the necessary time for you to become an expert at being able to hit your target quickly and efficiently every time.

I have been able to find Glaser bullets at several local gun shops.

      I'll take a good hallow point. But these bullets do bring up some good points.

      Thank you, Samsons1. Gun safety is like everything else in life, you get out of it what you put into it.
