Damn good idea, thanks much.


 I'm coming very close to making official complaints or safety concerns because of how long we wait to change out our "barney round". No one has a clue how many times they've been chambered...and they sow it.

 About 8 years ago, A G22 went "high order," as Pat would say, at Los Alamos National Labs. Scientist's being scientist's, they tracked it directly to a round that had been chambered multiple times. DOE sent out a complex wide safety's often ignored, same as the one about Chinese batteries.
