Comments: Bad Ammo.

Well isn't this great! I'm going shooting this afternoon and all I have is American Eagle. Oh this should be fun.

Does the range have a video in the shooting area?

You should have gotten pictures of the kids cut and did you get copies of the kids statement or anything detailing the kids cut?

The father sounds like an ass and you probably haven't heard the last from them.

American Eagle... big no-no. I bought a box for the .44 once, and it was nasty. Not to mention that the groupings sucked.

Funny thing... regular Federal Ammo? Haven't had any problems with.

At the time, the kid and his father just left. The Range Officer even spoke to them just before they left the parking lot and they said they where just going home. I've had worse injuries from a paper cut.

I'm fucking kicking myself for not thinking of this earlier, but you should have kept the box. It has the ammo lot # on it. American Eagle might have done a recall....

Your not alone in this world Contagion.

I tried the AE on my .40 S&W and it hated it.

Hated. It.

It looked like i had left my precious semi-auto tied to the exhaust of a diesel truck after about 100 rounds. Literally soot ridden, black and nasty. Took me 2 days to get all the crap out of it.

Not to mention at least once every clip, it jammed

I've found Speer GoldDot to be really good for plinking and range work

The kid and his dad couldn't say anything to you about it at the time? Something hits me in the face and cuts me, I'm gonna say something right then. Sounds like daddy's raising a wuss...
