    Out of my mind, brb never.
    I was playing SWAT 4 the other day and noticed how there is a somewhat diverse weapon and ammo choice. This got me thinking about making a game (possibly based on the SWAT 4 engine) that placed a civilian or even off duty officer in different scenarios with concealed carry in mind.

    There would be the proverbial convienence store, bank...(insert any place) robbery, home invasion, on the street, going to your car, in your car...the list can go on and on. You would have to make the right decision on whether you should get involved, when to draw your weapon, distractions ect.

    You would have a very diverse choice of pistols to choose from, even pistols that are not very suitable for carry (ala-Desert Eagle). This would show the pros/cons of carrying a certain weapon based on round capacity, recoil, speed of draw (based on holster/weapon size), caliber, penetration ect. There would be many different loads to choose from, allowing the player to see and learn the difference between JHP, FMJ and special defensive loads.

    Obviously this game cannot accurately portray real life fully, but it would give possible CCW holders a chance to be rated on their handling of certain situations, and their ability to discern whether its ok to use deadly force.

    What would WMDs opinion be if this game was made?

    I guess it would be interesting but it would be pretty difficult to actually make it fun.

    Well, you could always just play it cowboy style, but that wouldnt be the point of the game. A "free" mode could be activated after completing the game properly. I dunno, im not very experienced with mods, but the SWAT 4 engine could be adapted pretty easily. I think it could be done right.

    I think it would be tricky to pull it off to keep it interesting... but if you could, I think it would be pretty neat. Id even buy it, if it were $10 :)

    how are you gonna simulate the impending lawsuit?

    I see what you mean. There are numerous scenarios that are ripe for simulating a CCW situation.

    eg. there's a convenience store, library, chinese take away joint, there's a bank in one of the free expansion packs, a hotel and numerous houses

    There's the Glock 17, M1911, Desert Eagle .50AE and Colt Python and the JHP/FMJ rounds.

    The game can just take place in Florida.

    SWAT 4 could be easily adapted, its just a matter of finding a way to edit and change the .ini and config files.

    May be a better idea if it was a game that had a storyline that had nothing to do with concealed carry scenarios but there was a program that randomly generated a person running up to you with a gun when you arent doing a mission.
    That way it wouldnt get old fast, and you would be caught offguard more

    Not a bad idea, that way it would get so repetitive. There would have to be a pretty good storyline/plot for the random hero thing to work.

    The convenience store scenario sounds perfect going by the recent posts here.

    It's a classic 7/11 with a walk in cool room and open cash counter.

    You could place a whole bunch of people in the store shopping.

    Have Apu at the counter. Have a dude with a shotgun about to rob the joint.

    You have a Desert Eagle .50 AE w/ JHPs.

    What do you do? Do you put a +P hot shit into said perp?

    if it's based on my life as a CCWer, it'd be pretty damn boring, save for a couple of house sweeps at zero dark thirty..
