    the head shots finally did it, very unusual case. center mass shots may not work. extremities and head may be more debilitating and painful.

    The bad guy did something I always reccomend, close the distance. It unnerves the crap out of somebody, the officer was incredibly lucky.

    That must be why we only need 5 or 10 rounds to protect ourselves.

    Glad this guy made it through.

    Whoever said, "Less is more", is wrong. Way more is always better! :cool:

    Why we must have big magizines. Until citizens are 100% guaranteed they will be protected or 100% guaranteed a tyrant won't take over the country, or 100% guaranteed America won't be attacked, WE ALL MUST HAVE THE CAPABILITY AND "CAPICITY" TO DEFEND.
    The 100% guarantee will never be there. It is up to us...period ! Unlike other country's, we will NEVER give up the freedom to defend. Its that simple. This article is just one of tens of thousands why !

    I have a question: Are LEO's allowed to carry hollowpoint ammunition like Gold Dot's in their service pistols? I firmly believe HP's in .45 or 9mm are about equal in stopping power and would be my pick for a defensive ammunition.

    Don't know about every department, but I know of 3 in Oregon that do, from first hand experience.

    Ha! I was just about to ask why would you, in my opinion, downgrade from .45 to 9mm?

    Lots of questions.
    I'll still put my faith in the 45 ACP.

    BUT here is a point of info.
    Also ask a Maori.

    The first 2 links didnt come live.
    Justcopy and paste them into your browser.

    The two shots that will put ANYONE down.
    A headshot.
    A good hip shot. Which will put them in position for a head shot.
    Monopods don' t move well.

    "I have to much ammo!" said nobody. Ever!


    No doubt who this doctor voted for and where he stands on the 2nd ammendment.

    And this is asked by a supposedly intelligent doctor who has no doubt had to treat many innocent victims of crime?
