NO it is “NOT” a big “Crew” of terrorists.
BUT - 46 rds of 9mm for me - HELL YES - and I am still Out-gunned.
The Typical Mass Shooter:
It is usually 1 man with an AR15 and 3 (Avg) - 30rd mags = SO 90rds 223/556.
The avg US Mass Shooting.
My EXPERIENCE AND SKILLS
So I dont “know it all” - BUT I have been to 3 Large Seminars by Nationally Respected
groups who study these issues. Mass Church Shootings.
And as a State and DHS Certified Pistol Instr “I helped” our church develop a training
program/Team to address these threats. Along with our Police rep - Former SWAT Officer.
We Practice Attack/Respond scenarios.
(In case you don’t follow US current and Past News reports of Mass Shootings.)
It is often 1 PSYCO WITH AN AR15 AND A COUPLE OF “SPARE” 30RD MAGS - Typical.
That makes HIS round count say 90rds.!! and UP. Of 223/556.!
Typical, “Load-out” for US Mass shooters.
VS “MY” 46rds of 9mm.
SO - I am Still at a BIG Disadvantage in Fire Power and Weaponry.
I am WAY OUT GUNNED just to Start.
MY only advantage will likely be my Skill Level.
Considering my 46 rds of 9mm vs His 90 rds of 223/556(Or more).
So my Draw is now 2 seconds instead of My Normal of 1/2 sec - Its a trade-off I have to
accept for now but work on.
BUT - If I am going to be in a Real Fight for my life against a Rifle - I want all the
ammo I can reasonably carry.
So For Me Better “Too Many” than not enough.
Since 46 rds of 9mm (For Me) vs 90rds of 223 (For them) is Still, already, Fundamentally
a Loosing Proposition.
I did Not say it was Easy.
We DO practice Church shooting scenarios fm time to time.
“I” know how to shoot in a crowd - practice it all the time - best thing is wait until things clear out ??
But meanwhile people are being killed.
Problem is most of the bystanders Don’t “Clear Out” or even move at all -
they just stay Frozen in place with Confusion/Fear waiting their turn to be shot.
Seems counter-intuitive but it’s what actually happens.
And if the Killer is still shooting I want to fill him up with all the 9’s I can carry -ASAP.
Being aware of possible Shoot-thrus, misses, etc.
Me -“Take a Safe Angle/s”
SO - I/we do NOT have time to wait for the Police.
Avg # killed if :
Defenders Respond in say 1-3 min = 1-5 killed
Defenders Respond in 3-7 min = 10-15 Killed(Avg Police Response time = 5min.)
Those numbers are “Roughly”.
SO - Dam Right I am carrying 46rds - Because I cant logically carry More.
AND I cannot logically carry my AR15 in church for Security - or I would.
AND I carry in a Fanny Pack because I carry Everyday/Everywhere Hot or cold.
And have the skills, much more than most, to do it.
“MY GOD” - “APPROVES”
