Trolling around the auction sites tonight and I came across a loading operation out of Idaho by the name of South Fork Industries with an ammo line called “Jihawg Ammo”. Their ammo is nothing special at all and is simply remanufactured once-fired brass with FMJ bullets, with one important difference. They paint the bullet tips with a pink / red paint that is infused with pork products. Apparently the marketing angle here is that should one want to have an ammunition type that is relatively more offensive to the typical Islamist Jihadist terrorist, this would supposedly be it due to the fact that aside from being deadly, the ammo is also “Haraam” or unclean, and would thus disqualify the target terrorist from having a successful jihad whether they live or die.
If you thought the vampire / zombie ammo was potentially offensive or nonsensical, then this should take things to a new level of shame. Obviously it is as much sarcastic as anything, and is just a marketing angle designed to sell more remanufactured ammo of common calibers than typical generic stuff of similar type. Below is one photo, and I will avoid posting other photos from their site, particularly the “put some ham in Mohamed” printed target which they sell, and let’s please try to avoid belittling any group or person here (I post this for amusement quality and historical note). The company is targeting terrorists with their message, but they can easily be interpreted as offensive in general.
