    Home-invasion group armed with an assault rifle

    Four men have been arrested in connection with a home-invasion robbery earlier this week where one man was armed with a high-powered assault rifle.

    The victims weren't injured, according to Tallahassee police.

    Arrested were Floyd Washington III, 21; Vandolis Jackson, 18; Gary Speight, 18; and Andrew Clinton-Baker, 19.

    Police say four men barged into a house in the 3100 block of South Fulmer Circle at 3 a.m. Tuesday. An 18-year-old woman and two 19-year-old men were asleep inside.

    The men demanded cash and then began ransacking the place, punching holes in the walls, breaking mirrors and turning furniture over, TPD spokesman David McCranie said.

    They locked the three teenagers in a closet and then drove away in the woman's 1994 Toyota, McCranie said.

    One of the men carried an AR-15 rifle loaded with bullets that can penetrate bullet-resistant glass and armored trucks,
    McCranie said. The other three carried handguns.

    A Leon County sheriff's deputy spotted the Toyota on Mahan Drive shortly after the robbery. The men jumped out of the car when they reached a dead-end at Pointe Court and ran into the woods.

    Officer Kirk Watson and police dog Blaze found two of the men about 4 a.m. and he discovered the rifle. A handgun was found later.

    The other two men were caught later in the evening.

    Maybe they meant that the AR15 can penetrate armored trucks, like if you fire the gun out of a cannon or something.

    Not saying that the article author knows what he's talking about, but the guy could have been loaded up with green-tip steel penetrator rounds as seen here: http://www.ammoman.com/images2/Bosnia223/AMMO.htm

    Just saying it's possible that the report is accurate. Doubtful though.

    They sell armor piercing ammo at the local gunshows I go to, cash and carry. Silver tip, green tip, .223, .50, you name it it's there.

    5.56 doesn't have the power, even the green tipped "penetrator" round, to piece any "real" armor on a vehicle.

    Green-tip M855 is readily available and might break the heavier grades of bullet-resistant glass ... if you dump enough magazines into it and the vehicle just ... sits around. It was designed to penetrate a steel helmet at 300 yards, not go through the many strata of bullet-resistant glass.

    I don't imagine that heavily controlled black-tip M995 is going to do all that much better. I gather that its design intent is to defeat personal body armor.

    EDIT: further study shows that M995 is actually designed to engage lightly-armored vehicles. Still doubt it's going to do much against laminated BR glass without a few magazines. Don't think it's readily available to civilians anyway.

    I think I need to order me some pallets of that green tip stuff.

    Why? I think the real question is...

    Why not?

    You can find it next to the .50 cal ammo that will tear your head off if it flies within 15 feet of you.

    I called Gander to buy some armor piercing 5.56 rounds to shoot out of my suppressed AK and they just hung up on me. WTF?
