#2 Well, if we can't boil them in giant vats of pig shit, I guess pork infused ammo will have to do.

Too bad it doesn't come in .308 though.

#3 Holy crap, they have it in .45 AND .308! Double whammy! Have to wait a bit though since I already convinced the wife to let me buy a half case of .45 yesterday.

They're s'possed to be on the way right now, so no, not yet. Can't wait though.

#5 OK, alternate plan:
(1) Go to grocery store. On aisle where the Crisco is, look for 'manateca' (pork lard).
(2) dip bullet tips, wipe. leave enough that they're shiny.
(3) bust a cap on Achmed. Done.
Alternately, you could use your leftover bacon grease...

Of course, the whole deal here is whether Achmed et al are aware you're doing this, because that is the source of it's deterent value, aside from being made dead in the process. For helpful insight on this, look into the begining of the 'Sepoy Mutiny' in British colonial India, and the stories of Douglas MacArthur in his early years in the Philippines. Both touch on this very subject.
