Re: Security guard thwarts a bank robbery

A lot of the people in those videos were cops, not private guards, but yes Brazil has no shortage of those videos

Here's an interesting one on the proper use of non-lethal force by a guard, and it comes from America

Re: Security guard thwarts a bank robbery

Like most professions, private security runs the gamut from extremely incompetent morons to some of the toughest and most capable people you'll meet....On the other hand you occasionally find people of extraordinary quality who do security work because they don't fit into most other occupations wel...

Re: Security guard thwarts a bank robbery

This shows too a lack of deterrence from a uniform. Uzi at the ready, as I recently saw in Frankfurt seems the way to roll. Lol I think in this case, the robber was hoping to score himself a free gun in addition to the cash from the bank. That's one of the risks of open carry, and why we still see ...

Re: Security guard thwarts a bank robbery

Some of the most violent videos I see come out of Brazil, and some of the best police work I've seen does, also. That must be a real shit-hole over there?

Security guard thwarts a bank robbery

Man talk about brazen. The robbers here are not deterred by either the security door nor the visible presence of an armed guard. The ensuing events show why they should have been.

http://www.springfield-armory.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/PI9208L_Featured.png The Springfield EMP is the most reliable small 1911ish gun I've found, but you won't touch one in your price range unless you can find a used one but even then it's 9mm or .40. This one seems the most appealing. And I...

Re: Condition 0 carry

Is carrying a cocked and unlocked 1911 really any different than carrying an XD with a round in the chamber? No. But I would rather carry a P38 than an XD if I had the choice. XDs are great for a lot of reasons, but the margin of error is too low in my opinion. Does this mean you would not carry a ...

The best 1911

A common custom for me is to buy a new gun after I get my tax returns back. And seeing as it's about that time and I don't own any 1911s, I was thinking about getting one this year So I'm wondering, what is the best 1911 that meets the following requirements? - Costs less then 1200 dollars - Has an ...

Armed Pizza deliveryman survives an ambush robbery

As far as tactical situations go, you don't get much worse then having a gun pointed at you inches from your face while your arms are full of pizzas and your gun is in your holster. I give this guy all the credit in the world for surviving and being able to shoot back despite being hit. Hopefully hi...

Re: Two bystanders intervene in robbery, one armed and one not

You seriously need to consider no longer reading and watching CNN. Just another example of how biased they are. They call the civilian without a gun who intervened and got killed as "being hailed a good Samaritan", and then showed his picture. The CCW holder who actually stopped the incid...

Re: Washington legislators propose bill to allow guns in sports stadiums

Republicans just took over the legislature and the presidency. That's naturally going to be a big change after 8 years of democratic control of the whitehouse.

The .44 was outdoors, but I have shot 9mm indoors without hearing protection. Again, not pleasant, but manageable. A suppressor would be best, but I'd rather use a 9, 45 or intermediate rifle round than a .22 if I had that option. Hopefully getting a suppressor will be a much more convenient option...

In my late teens I shot a .44 magnum without hearing protection. It wasn't pleasant, but I wasn't deafened. If anything, this guy just makes a good case for suppressors. Did you shoot it indoors?
