    Flyte,

    Your battery generically came with a yellow xt60 connector.

    In your Lipo Fire photo, that battery lead has been extended with battery wires ending in a Red Deans connector.

    A gender changer does away with the extra wire BUT it doesn’t put out the fire :)

    Man,.. Bra, that battery is toasty!

    Yeah Flyby, I was just being sarcastic with Jeff when he told me don't tell the manufacturer I was using the changer. ;)

    Yes Flyby, there was some chain jerking going on there. I do know the parts of the battery. Sometimes sarcasm doesn't come across in text. :p

    Hahaha, that's how it's done bro.

    What's the red tip on the 460 mag? Not a tracer is it? Or just a warning to anyone looking down the barrel of that monster, "Do Not F With Me!" :D

    Good eye Flyte.

    It’s called a “Flex Tip” Flyte.

    The velocities are so high in this 460XVR that the hollow point bullet doesn’t have time to expand properly/correctly. The Flex Tip pushes down into the bullet core to help create a proper bullet expansion.

    Here’s what Hornady says Flyte:

    Hornady® offers the same Flex Tip® technology for handguns that revolutionized lever guns. Typical hollow point pistol bullets deliver good performance at “MODEST VELOCITIES”, but have a tendency to expand too quickly and sacrifice penetration at the higher velocities achieved with lever action guns.

    Product Features

    PATENTED FLEX TIP® BULLET TECHNOLOGY

    Upon impact, the soft tip compresses into the bullet, initiating immediate expansion across a wide range of velocities. Safe to shoot in tubular magazines as well as any other firearm.

    INTERLOCK® RING

    The one-piece, high antimony lead core of the FTX® is mechanically locked to the jacket with an InterLock ring. This, along with a specially designed jacket, results in reliable performance and maximum weight retention for deep penetration on large or heavy-bodied game animals.

    BALLISTICALLY EFFICIENT SECANT OGIVE

    Pioneered by Hornady,® the secant ogive profile delivers stability, flat trajectories and amazing accuracy.

    SPECIALLY ENGINEERED JACKET

    The heavy jacket over the shank of the bullet combined with our proven InterLock® design controls expansion and enhances accuracy.

    In other words this is probably the only revolver and ammo I would consider hunting Hippos with.

    Flyby, that's some high tech ammo for a high tech revolver. Thanks for educating me, I love that kind of stuff!

    You’re welcome Flyte.

    I enjoy it as well.

    Lots of good times shooting with my children and Grandchildren.

    Lots of new shooting tech out there these days and some old stand bye’s every once and awhile get a face lift.

    I would like to know where you could possibly conceal that hand-held artillery piece.
    Does it come with it`s own wheels and lanyard?

    Yeah, I reckon it’s a problem BB56.

    She does have a tendency to show through a might at times.

    Man you're a riot! You have me literally rolling on the floor. If that thing went off like that it would throw you 5 feet in the air. And burn you a new one also. :eek:

    Wow! I really enjoy Bonfires and the UK!

    Well BB56, a man needs to be neighborly so first thing I’d have to do at the Bonfire is show up with some American Dawg Ballocks as presents for all my friends:
    87266C3C-D15C-4E0C-892A-BFB4F6D4A635.jpeg

    I would definitely introduce you to one of my very best former military friends that’s been dying to meat you ever since I told her how honest, friendly, all the Long hard flying you do and hoe loyal you are to scratch building folks:
    405B0838-146B-4BDE-83DF-6BBA2A0F168B.jpeg

    I’d most likely drink too much ale around the Bonfire and after getting drunk I suppose I’d probably confess my true gender identity:

    0BCDEE2F-7FD1-4BB1-A8CA-6EE87C27C65F.jpeg

    After way too many more Brewskis, I’d lay down under my favorite blanket and go to sleep.

    30115B67-170A-4E1C-8BC2-032C1D48EECC.jpeg

    Yup, that’s exactly what I think I’d most likely do.

    BUT when I’m in Texas it’s no problemo, cause it’s legal to Open Carry there.

    AND, what’s really cool about the state of Texas is,... Trailers are also allowed.
