  • Crazed man attacks Deputy. Another "teachable moment".

    Hi all

    Here's another "teachable moment". I think we all wished these things did'nt happen, but we can learn from these video's in case we have to defend ourselves.

    Here's a copy/paste:

    "A crazed man’s rampage came to a not-so-sudden end Saturday morning in Montgomery County Maryland, and a bystander caught it all on video. After striking a lone deputy twice with a long stick, the attacker took a dozen rounds while still advancing on the officer.

    It looked like the stuff of nightmares. The attacker looked more like a college professor with his sport coat and khaki pants than a would-be cop-killing lunatic..."

    I don't know if this Forum will link to this, but you can find the video yourself by searching: VIDEO: Crazed Man Attacking Deputy Soaks Up 12 Rounds Before He’s Stopped By John Boch February 8, 2021.



    If I where to "grade" this Deputy, I would give him an "A". He did EVERYTHING he could to NOT use deadly force.

    That said...

    I don't think he ever heard about "The Tueller Drill", or the tactic of "Getting OFF the X." (eyeroll). Look those up and YOU will learn a lot!

    He may want to review those...

    I would like to know the caliber and bullet type he used...I "suspect" 9mm FMJ. Don't hate me.

    I also linked to the same article.

    I'm betting my safety on the most powerful caliber/good hollowpoint I can shoot accurately. Gentleman can disagree.

    Thank you for linking to the video.

    I agree with justashooter...

    I don't know how many times I've linked this article into the forums, but here it is again if you've never seen it Soylent Green:

    ETA: maybe his department didn't issue ammo to part timers/auxiliary? I admit I'm guessing on this.

    I'm guessing on this: OLD Deputy, needs money, nothing EVER happens on this beat, any ammo will do, use cheap stuff, won't ever matter anyway...and 9mm FMJ. I hope we find out, but we probably won't.

    Your right on LEO issue ammo, I'm sure of that.

    I disagree. Caliber matters,( but as we know, shot placement is more important). Please cite research.

    357 magnum has shown to have the highest "one shot stops". https://www.buckeyefirearms.org/alte...stopping-power

    The .357 is not my choice, but it consistently is at/near the top.
