    Another popular gun myth is that people who have been shot have the courtesy to know they've been shot and stop attacking you. This is a reminder that it doesn't always take the wind out of their sails.

    If the shooting were done with a 10mm the victim would have been blown back 10 ft and would need dental records for proper identification.

    if it was shot from a block 20 it also might have killed the shooter from the hand grenade effect

    the simple fact that the reporter wasn't killed simply for investigating the story proves it was not a 10mm.

    This is why 1oz shotgun slugs > *. It is also the reason why when the officers in my department shoot a suspect, they keep shooting until he stops usually.

    Or handguns could just suck at actually stopping and/or killing people, all else being equal, compared to good shotgun loads (i.e. #1 Buck or larger at appropriate range, slugs, etc) or rifle rounds (as in centerfire rifle)

    he must have been on pcp, or had super powers... because when i shoot people with a handgun, they drop instantly like a sack of potatoes... while grasping the wound, like fred samford.

    We are the 7th largest dept in the nation. Im sure people have, but the officers are still taught to stop the threat. There is a reason why my department has only had 1 non-accident related on-duty death in the past 20 years.

    The firearms instructor I was talking to the other day has killed a suspect on duty. He shot the guy 5 times with 00 Buckshot and hit him all 5 times.
