Why one cop carries 145 rounds

I mean, people criticize me for carrying a total of 46 rounds for my G19:

  • One in the chamber and the carry mag filled with HST self defense rounds.
  • Two holstered mags filled with FMJ target practice rounds, which may help if the self-defense rounds are being stopped by a perp’s good but not great ballistic vest.

Note that the purpose of any self-defensive gun fire is to make the deadly and imminent threat stop. That’s it. No one’s out to kill anyone just to do it. The perps are, of course. Not the perps body-count in the video. There are bad people.

Was the perp in the video above a deadly and imminent threat as he offensively pumped bullets in the squad car of the cop? Um… Yes. That should be obvious.

Did the perp stop his aggression even after being hit with multiple well placed bullets? No.

Did the cop need to keep firing until the threat was subdued? Yes.

Was the cop thought to be guilty of anything other than by the uninformed liberal tender snowflake doctor at the hospital? No.

Is the cop back on duty? Yes. And rightly so. Happy he carries plenty of ammo.

Back to the criticism I get from happy go lucky six-shooters. They say that if you can’t hit your target with just one or two shots, you’re a bad shot and should practice more.

Let’s ask another question:

Is the cop in the video above a firearms instructor and does he know what he’s doing? Yes, on both counts. I like the 13 bullets in three holes result.

I’ll keep doing what I’m already doing, even though it’s three times less ammo than our hero cop in the above video now carries.
