I'm talking about when the firepower of a rifle dominates that of a handgun. Specifically that one Los Angeles bank robbery with the guys with the automatic rifles. The cops had to run to a gun store and grab guns to counter them. Anyhow, back to the topic.. when is a rifle actually worthwhile in a shootout? When it's 100+ yards away or is it always better? Dunno... SWAT and what not breech with rifles but why don't criminals ever use em?
