Not a bad site :) I do disagree with one point though:

Bullets containing white phosphorous are the exception. We've seen these bullets fired, and they do indeed produce bright flashes of light. Such bullets were designed so machine gunners could see where their bullets were hitting, and start fires when riddling the fuel tanks of enemy vehicles. Needless to say, they're usually available only through military sources, and at that, in a limited number of calibers.

This isn't quite true. Tracers, the ammo they refer to is not available through only military sources. I have several rounds of tracers in my gun safe at the moment, and I assure you they did not come from military sources. As for the calibers they come in, wrong again. You can get tracers in nearly any caliber. You pay dearly for them in some of the odder calibers, but they are available.
