Re: Carjacker killed by armed victim at gas station

Wow those are some crazy incidents. Can't believe the cops were plain clothed and didn't identify themselves before drawing. Anyway, in the case I showed, you'll notice the victim didn't shoot right away. He waited till the offender was at his car and it looked like they exchanged some words first. ...

Do you have a link for this video?

Well the bad guy certainly picked the right wardrobe for the occasion. Good idea to wear a red sweater.

I'd never consider that on grounds that this could be considered a "dangerous modification" that could be used against you if you are ever in court over a shooting.

Re: XD-e

As someone who has used a Springfield XD for everyday carry for the past decade, I cannot possibly see any appeal to this new pistol type. There is nothing about that is better then what the XD already has. Also what is with the frame-mounted safety? Why have so few companies learned that manual saf...

One of the extremely rare advantages of having small hands is that I don't need a mag extension for guns like the Glock 26. I only need them for the absolutely smallest guns, like a Kahr PM9

Re: I give up; Glock 19 for me.

I prefer to go smaller: Springfield XD9 subcompact or XDS. If I carried a glock, it would probably be a 26 or 43. While the 19 is sufficient for CCW (indeed, one would be hard pressed to find any gun that serves dual roles of open uniformed carry and CCW as well as the 19), I'd prefer to sacrifice a...

Another bank robbery/guard shooting video



Real impressed with the guard in this. He had almost no time to react, but still got into the fight quick enough to win. Also he did an excellent job clearing a malfunction and getting his gun back in the fight.

Re: CCW shooting officer's attacker video

I'm partial to ammo standardization myself. The first pistol I ever bought was in 9mm. Ever since then, I've tried to get all others in 9mm as well. It's very convenient to be able to supply most of your guns with the same ammo.

Dumbass gets killed assaulting CCW holder with a drawn weapon

This is a 2015 incident, but too funny to avoid posting now. Seriously, how dumb do you have to be to assault a person with a drawn gun when you are unarmed? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXhfJ4LNgIs This also shows the value of security cameras. This guy might have been in serious legal trouble f...

Re: CCW shooting officer's attacker video

I've found cases where a .45 had similar results to what we saw in this case. There is no magic bullet that will always result in a one-shot stop. Seems like the guy did everything right except dropping the gun right next to a bystander after the attack. Better to re-holster (assuming he had a holst...

Guns are the Onion's glaring weak-spot. On every other issue they are an equal opportunity offender, but when it comes to guns they only attack supporters of gun rights.

Re: 3 home invaders down

There seemed to be some question initially if the boy went overboard shooting the three. But last I read, they were dressed in all black, had masks on, one with a knife and one with brass knuckles, busting a glass door to enter a home. A reasonable homeowner would be in fear of his life, ya think? ...

3 home invaders down

It's pretty rare in the annuals of history of ever find a case of one person killing 3 or more people in self defense.

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

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 ...

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.
