    Waukesha WI Rampage

    Say you're at an event and a vehicle is used as a weapon....the driver comes to a temporary stop in front of you due to collision. Are you carrying ammunition that is capable of defeating auto glass? Is your 5 shot wheel gun stoked with Gold Dot SB, or wadcutters? Why, in 2021, are you carrying something that is not designed to defeat auto glass when vehicles are one of the most common terrorist weapons?

    Something to think about as this tragedy unfolds. Ammunition designed for robust performance through intermediate barriers such as autobody sheet metal and autoglass ain't just for state troopers.

    I thought after the last few incidents of vehicles going in to crowds like this that secured, barricaded perimeters had become pretty standard.

    Hope they get the shitbag(s) responsible.
    “It’s time for us to unite so we can heal” - spoken by the people who have been viciously attacking others of differing political alignment for four years. I think they misspelled “heel”.

    They are/this was.

    Barricades that can stop a vehicle are a different thing entirely, and most localities don't have those sort of resources.

    I pretty much pack P9HST flavors as it stands now. So if they're still good to go I'll stay with it.

    Lots of bullets go through glass just fine. That said, for 99% of the people present (or more) that car was gone before they would have been able to do a damn thing. Before we discuss anything about ammo… Do we carry trauma supplies? I carry a Ryker Nylon ankle trauma kit. Would it help? Maybe or not, but just as I’d feel horrible having the opportunity to stop the threat and not… I’d feel worse watching someone die who I could have helped if I had the equipment I’ve been trained to use… Especially if that someone was my family.

    Just avoid crowds on the street. Actually just avoid crowds if you can. I know, airports are a problem but at least they have security. Parades, not so much.
    In the P-F basket of deplorables.

    They are here. Police vehicles supplemented by DPW vehicles (snow plows, straight trucks, etc).
