Ok you use the NYPD as an example here man? Do you know how many lawsuits that Dept has to date since 1987? Many of which false shootings of toddlers, homeless people,black people, you name it. not to mention the guy they shot 43 times a few years back. And the groom they recently slaughtered. what was it 50 rounds fired? I'll ay it again 50 ROUNDS fired Mikey. 21 hit the car, where did the other 29 go? Over the hudson river? Or into that guys face? That Dept is plauged with too many inexpirienced cops in too many areas to argue. And shooting skills is one of em. But thats not the point here, you used them but they are not what the topic is about man.
You see this puts me back in that post you just had goin and locked up about the scenario in the store & takin a shot at 35yds away and yadda yadda. Even if you got jhps,glaser rounds or whatever anti-penetratin magic in your bullet. Takin a shot with folks(let alone your friggen family) BEHIND the BG is just too much of a risk. And I'm tellin you, if you gotta draw your gun the situation is stressful anyway. The worse feeling you ever wanna deal with. Too much of a chance of a miss with or without JHPs. I mean think about that man. If you gotta shoot your gun at a living body, and then you mentioned family members BEHIND him/her? Heck no man.
I would never shoot with my family BEHIND my target. Thats just stupid anyway you look it at there Mikey. Supposed you miss and hit one of your family members, then what huh? Now you got a dead family member and a BG still left.
