Maybe someone should snope that.

I worked as a design engineer virtually all my life. I hated the sales types for making such claims... Its almost absurd if you think about it. Much like buying a car insurance policy because it would also cover you if you are trampled during a monsoon in Times Square by a water buffalo. And... even if the material in the grip was "strong enough" to retain the results of a round going off in a mag, I would imagine that claim would only be valid if that was the one and only round in the mag... otherwise.!!! :-)
