    Lemeetellya, that works. Or shoot a concrete wall and the bullet will travel about 3 to 6 inches away from the wall.

    Bullet ricochet is certainly a tactic.

    I read this morning somewhere that Dog the Bounty Hunter (remember him?) is pushing the same idea.

    Just ban the police and military from having guns, that will stop violence world wide.

    My old man told me about an SO in Kansas years ago where the Sheriff did something similar once. Had the sidearms chambers clear, a piece of wire soldiered to the slide/frame and they were locked in a compartment inside the unit. They were not allowed to get them unless it got really bad.

    Apparently it lasted all but a week before everyone either quit or filed suit. Dad said his theory was if the Police didn't have weapons on them, they would be less inclined to use them or some ****.

    Scary thing is, some Departments now, may not be far off from something like this.
