    Always carry at least one silver bullet in your EDC. Just in case of werewolves. :p

    And here I thought you were going to say something like, "don't do anything while CC-ing that you wouldn't do without a gun." :rolleyes:

    This is far more important than that.

    Its like an A10. Sure its not a sleek f35 with all that thrust vectoring and radar avoidance, but it has that big ol' gun at the front that makes up for it. :)

    I heard somewhere silver is too hard to properly engage the rifling's in the barrel. And so a silver bullet would key hole? Might be BS. Never tried it.

    Anyways I would wait until that werewolf was right on me before I shot! Them suckers are sneaky, and fast!

    Im definitely not shooting a bullet that cost $3.50. Im saving them to barter for gasoline with the road warrior.

    Pffft!

    It is only silver jacket. Any experienced werewolf hunter knows that you have to at least be 50% silver to do the job. Otherwise you just burn them a little bit and piss them off.

    I mean, uh... Those are expensive, and I'm sure I could put my money to better use somewhere else.

    That's not true. History is full of examples of silver plated objects killing werewolves. One was even beaten to death with a silver plated candlestick.

    Pure silver would probably obturate about as well as a bullet cast out of linotype would according to this, they are pretty close in Brinell hardness, but coin silver is much harder, and probably not work so well:

    Cool info. I doubt Coonan would sell them as actual live rounds without testing them. Plus they probably used the thinnest of silver sheets for the jacket over the lead.

    Now the more important question. Does carving a cross into the top of a bullet actually damage vampires?

    You can tell this is an important topic...there is a meme for it. Granted, I made it...but that doesn't change the fact that if there is a meme for it then it is important. Werememe2.jpg
