    Heard him also, wanted to call in and ask for a demonstration. He said he was a life long shooter. Rubber bullets yet they hurt will not incapacitate a armed criminal to the point that they can not return fire. The criminal no matter how experienced only has to get lucky with one shot and your dead. Knowing Police have to fire two rubber bullets first even if hit it is not going to stop return fire with leathal ammunition. Glad I'm not a cop in these times with their hands tied behind their backs, one job I do not want to do. In todays environment they can't even protect theirselves.

    or, "all things....."

    I realize that he is very successful, but I sure don't understand why. Probably the most disorganized presentation/show on the air. He seems to have as much trouble reading as he does staying on topic.

    Sir, step away from the toolbox!
    With all the big talk about "muh 1911" from the non-shooting, non-carrying (except in a Fobus) advocates of the platform, you might be on to something.
    (Plain Jane, standard old 1911 mag held 7 rounds.)

    That's usually my response when someone proposes a leg shot to me. I say I'd be ok with shooting in the leg ONLY after the gun or weapon is shot out of their hands. Sadly, I've gotten some agreement on the idea.

    Hard to see street cops packing M1's, but it'd be cool

    Would there be a requirement that the first "real" round be a one-shot to the hip??

    And, will Hoppe's get that crap out of the rifling?

    NYPD Glock trigger pull is 11 lbs. A few years back two officers fired on a suspect in the middle of the afternoon at fairly close range. The only thing they hit was the building behind him.
