    Seems Flash Mobs are now attacking people at random. Large groups band together to assault and rob whomever happens their way. What do you carry to protect yourself and family from this kind of behavior? Looks like high cap guns may become all the rage :laugh::laugh:

    Very nice titzonritz, that should take care of a pretty large flashmob. Wouldn't most things that work well against zombies also perform pretty well against a flash mob?

    Flash mobs in Albany? Most of the folks I see around the AM/PM are still in the throughs of their most recent meth hangover!

    5 rounds in a snubby will do it. Find the leader and put two in him and one in the guy next to him. The rest of the animals will scatter, leaving you time to reload at your convenience.

    Never thought about it but reality tells me there is no way I could hold off a mob by myself. So if I find myself in that position you'll see me down on my knees praying or running and praying. I believe God will hear me either way.
    That little Gatling gun could sure make a few people take notice and think twice about messing with you.

    The concept of a "flash mob" is always changing.... It used to be a big annoying dance in the mall. The last one I saw myself was yoga in the street, annoying also. Now it is organized mass anonymous theft flash mob theft - Google Search
    It can evolve into more violent and targeted acts of mayhem, mostly because everyone thinks that they are anonymous:
    Cleveland flash mob fight gathers attention « The Chronicle-Telegram - Lorain County's leading news source
    "A Philadelphia man was assaulted by a group of about 30 people who were believed to have gotten together through Twitter. In 2009, crowds swelled along the trendy South Street shopping district and assaulted several people."

    I am only going to get the first six...maybe more if I get some over-penetration or get time to reload. I am betting the rest run away after the first two or three go down though. :)

    I plan on just turning and running with them to the next guy. Hey I can be crazy to. I'm sure they don't check for ID to see if your a paid member of the flash mob.

    Oh wait I live in Silverton......Never mind.

    If I could get as many shots as he does out of his shotgun, I might consider that.

    Unfortunately I'm built for comfort, not speed. So +1 on the chainsaw.

    If I had to protect myself from a mob at close range, i'd probably want something like an ar15 pistol with a beta mag.
    More realistically, i'd probably carry my beretta px4 9mm with a few 20round mags, or my glock 26 with a few 32 round mags.
