I mentioned that I thought the name was going to be an issue for them.
I guess it was just menacing enough to be taken scarily, but not ridiculous enough (Zombiemax or Hydroshok, anyone?) to seem comical. They should have used a bright green coating . It's funny how colors have an effect on people who don't use their brains--anyone notice how many police officers dress in all-black these days..?

FWIW, Talons are pretty outdated as far as design, but were one of the early successes at modern-style jacketed hollow points. More interesting as a historical footnote of gun politics and ammo design than as a duty round.
