On Facebook today, Glow Ammo (known for their cold-tracer stickers) posted a vague message that they would have some “exciting news” coming soon. The post showed a box of G2 R.I.P. ammo, and the assumption I took was that they are doing a collaboration with G2 and will be marketing a G2 RIP tracer some how. This seems like one of those pre-emptive SHOT show teasers and would do well with the sort of crowd that initially gobbled up the RIP ammo creating panic and high auction prices.
I had been wondering about GLOW ammo since their stock of loaded ammo and sticker kits have been terribly low lately, with 9mm out of stock for what seems like a couple years for the most part. To put their Facebook post into perspective, they have done 5 total posts in the past 2 years, so this would seem a serious attempt to re-invigorate their brand. The only issue is that almost everywhere you go online in terms of gun forums, the posts have evolved to be ever more negative as the relative terminal ballistics of the G2 RIP are exposed to be nothing terribly awesome, and therefore not worth the very high price tag. I tend to think that cold tracer / fragmenting SCHP will trump the facts anyway and sell plenty of product.
