This is another, of many, examples as to why you need a "high capacity" magazine for a firearm.

Kid was shot 3-4 times and wasn't fazed at all.  He kept coming at the officer.  Officer fired another volley and hit the kid around 1-2 more times.  Sounds like the cop fired around 10 shots total.  And that's not even bad marksmanship.  A handgun is not an accurate weapon.  Firing around 10 times and hitting 5 times is pretty good for a moving target.

10 shots to incapacitate a single individual.  Imagine if there had been more attackers.

You can see just how close this kid got to the officer before the cop resorted to lethal force it says a lot for the quality of the officers involved that they gave him every opportunity before shooting him.

This is the 7/11 closest to my home in Winnipeg. Can't tell you how many times I've had to deek out young muggers hanging out around this place on my way home after the bar. Thankfully, today's hoodlums aren't as streetwise as us ol'dogs. Sadly, there's a red light district across the street, with a corner that numerous women have gone missing from.

Just FYI - I love Winnipeg. It hits above its weight, culturally, a small city with a ballet, symphony, numerous play houses and a good live music scene. You can also access pretty much every vice available in larger city centers. I enjoy a city where there's the potential to be stabbed. It makes for a more interesting Friday night!

What do you do after you've been shot with a pistol?

Typically the same thing you were doing before, except you are in pain, angry, and the adrenaline is flowing.

Unless you get a straight up killing shot, multiple rounds are usually be necessary to stop someone. Especially if certain drugs are involved.

Contrast this to a rifle or shotgun, both of which have enough power to kill someone with a single shot most of the time.

Stupid 9mm. Next one I'm getting is gonna be a .38, M&P compact is definitely the loudest 9mm I ever owned or shot. But easy conceal.

But he isn't wrong. A .45 will drop someone pretty quickly. Love 1911's. Don't care what you're on or how tweaked out you are. A .45 will drop em pretty quick.

Shooting a gun at someone is using lethal force. In other words, at best it's attempted murder. Unless it's legally justifiable. In order for it to be self-defense, and therefore lawful, it has to be a situation warranting the use of lethal force. The is no legal justification for wounding someone.

So if your shooting at someone, you are by definition trying to kill them. If you are trying to kill them, you better have a damn good reason.

And leg wounds can be just as fatal as chest wounds.

Technically all shots should be to center mass  as the most effective means to neutralize the threat. The dying part is just the unfortunate side effect of being shot center mass.

Moroning: Maybe the cop should be investigated for being such a poor shot.  five bullets, and the perp is still alive.  You suck at shooting.


Shot a pistol before?
Ever shot one under stress?
Most cops especially up here treat guns as tools. They shoot them enough to qualify and thats thats it. (Accurate) pistol shooting is a skill that isnt like riding a bike. If you dont keep doing it the skill degrades.

There was a case in Kingston Ontario where a cop ended up having to shoot someone but he ended up shooting him in the legs. Why? He flinched under stress. The phrase "down and to the left" has relevance

Ursa Minor: This is the 7/11 closest to my home in Winnipeg. Can't tell you how many times I've had to deek out young muggers hanging out around this place on my way home after the bar. Thankfully, today's hoodlums aren't as streetwise as us ol'dogs. Sadly, there's a red light district across the street, with a corner that numerous women have gone missing from.

Just FYI - I love Winnipeg. It hits above its weight, culturally, a small city with a ballet, symphony, numerous play houses and a good live music scene. You can also access pretty much every vice available in larger city centers. I enjoy a city where there's the potential to be stabbed. It makes for a more interesting Friday night!


And a decent steakhouse

Cops in Canada like the US shoot until whatever they are shooting goes down and stays down

Fara Clark: RussianPotato: This is another, of many, examples as to why you need a "high capacity" magazine for a firearm.

Kid was shot 3-4 times and wasn't fazed at all.  He kept coming at the officer.  Officer fired another volley and hit the kid around 1-2 more times.  Sounds like the cop fired around 10 shots total.  And that's not even bad marksmanship.  A handgun is not an accurate weapon.  Firing around 10 times and hitting 5 times is pretty good for a moving target.

10 shots to incapacitate a single individual.  Imagine if there had been more attackers.

that was why the colt 1911 came about


Ok Boomer ;)

There is no such thing as shooting to wound.  All shots are to kill.  You're spouting hollywoo bullshiat that shows you know nothing of the real world.

So, no one ever shoots at a leg? They always shoot to kill?

Then why do cops have guns, since they are not Judge Dread or the Spanish Inquisition, to condemn someone who hasn't even been tried to death?


Um the femoral artery is in the leg. Hit that and they are dead pretty damn quick and it isnt that hard to hit.
They aim center mass as it is the biggest widest target and least likely to miss.

More to the point, shooting to wound means you are more likely to miss, and endanger innocent people.

Shooting to wound is a good way to die in action.

Have you ever fired a gun?

Shooting at center mass on a moving target with a pistol without having the time to properly in and concentrate is much harder than calmly shooting at center mass on a target.

Trying to shoot the leg of a moving target in the blink of an eye with a 50% success rate would require Olympic level skill.

Technically all shots should be to center mass  as the most effective means to neutralize the threat. The dying part is just the unfortunate side effect of being shot center mass.


Guns don't kill people.

Kinetic shock and blood loss do.

Police fired a Taser at the boy, but it had no effect.

The officer fired four to five shots, but the teen kept walking in his direction, the report said.


That's not a teen, that's a terminator.

While nothing you said is factually wrong, you have made the mistake of saying it on Fark. Saying words which can be characterized by a motivated observer as not actively anti-gun are not acceptable on this premises.  Please remain where you are while the WhidbeySquad finalizes the location of your account for termination.


Not to worry! The "Whidbeysquad" just blocks posts like this so they don't have to see them.  Dissenting opinions cannot be tolerated so they whitewash posters. Kind of their philosophy for the world. Banish any view that doesn't fit the current agenda. It's called Liberal Utopia. George Orwell would be proud!

Do you still have the planetarium? Good memories of that from a long time ago. There aren't enough planetariums.

Seems there's only one person trying to claim shoot to wound or officer blame in this thread. Almost as if the gun proponents in this thread are in the right in this gun-related situation, so they're being left alone to discuss the particulars of the story, and educate the obviously wrong poster who plays video games and watches action movies to learn about firearms. Please stop acting like the Fark powers that be would intercede in this situation. They don't. When you go all Qanon? Yeah, they'll step up to shut up that idiocy.

PS I enjoy learning from your firearm conversations and seeing links likE Joerg that will be fun to check out, so thanks folks.

The magazine in the 1911 my dad used to own only held 8 rounds.

5 shots, shiats, none fatal. This cop is either a surgeon or the worst shot in history.

"The officer fired four to five shots, but the teen kept walking in his direction, the report said. The officer fired another round and the teen fell against a wall."
Reading is hard.
He fired six shots, five hit.

Hit in the neck, abdomen and thigh. Like I said, surgical or shiatty.

And fark your "reading is hard" comment, asshole.


Learn to read and I would not have to make that statement, moron.

Mostly right except cops (Canadian cops) are trained to stop the threat not kill.

I'll give you the ifs and ands, but some Canadian cops will totally shoot you in the butt. Sometimes even with a gun.

You are probably doing "facts" thing. I prefer logic. For example "it's coming right for us/past us/away from us!" logic
