    "to illustrate the difference between ball and HP ammo, let's compare a .22 round nose with a .45 hollowpoint!"

    Meh, not great. Some was good info, some was BS.
    I'll say this in the show's favor: there wasn't a huge push of "remember kids, these cause crime" or much of that. There was the "ballistic fingerprint" crap to a certain extent, but I figure they put that in there "so people know they can get caught for using this info maliciously"

    It'd be something to start with if you had no experience with guns, or almost none, but it's not really that good if you know what he's trying to talk about.
