Interesting analysis and commentary.

There are a ton of things that stand out. I’m going to keep the conversation to being prepared.
For the preparedness minded: Distance is your friend, it’s not like the movies and rarely is when you shoot someone or even something regardless of the caliber, ALL handguns are underpowered and are just convenient, be in shape and not a shape and you’ll have better options, you’ll almost never outrun anyone going backwards but refer to distance is your friend, use the best ammo possible, consider other than center mass options such as pelvic or head.
y’all stay safe

Honestly from video I would say death by cop could have been applied in this situation. The 12 shots would be you need retraining on weapon operation.
Even with a .22 you could get job done, I bet you when you look at his weapons it has a 12 round capacity and he fired till slide locked back panicky amateur style, but most have never had to kill someone so it takes alot the first few times after that the saftey we all.have but the most crazy is greatly reduced.
The shooter over the snow shoveling falls into the crazy category… the people who goaded him fall under stupid assholes that need a lesson in manners they could learn from not die from.

Any ideas about caliber of the handgun used?

Rumor mill says 9. Ammo unknown. Shot Placement unknown

Took a hand gun class with a guy who was security forces, then a security contractor inside the Green Zone.
He was a big advocate of the 9mm, as long as it was hollow points. NOT FMJs. He made a big point of that.
Was thinking in a post-SHTF, reloading cast bullets, is there a hollow point mould? Dont know, asking.

keep in mind stock Glock gen 1-4 barrels build higher pressures with lead rounds and the Hexagonal rifling

I’d also note that you’ll need a softer lead. Not hard cast
I used some lead sheeting like the stuff in X-ray vest and then controlled the hardness by adding in solder.

Post shft You can also just take the FMj round and file off the noses flat… a dum dum round…
You probably should look at a swagged bullet maker as the copper and brass to seal the barrel and take the brunt of the heat and friction will cause way less fouling of a firearm than even linotype an antimony, tin lead mix
You can save you .22 brass to make .45 acp partially swagged 230 grain flat nosed…it will drop a black bear one shot to skull at 20 yards. I have done it but use p+ loads.
If you take old vehicle batteries you neutralize acid by using baking soda.. then melt the lead plate( remove all impurities) into ingot this is point you can adjust hardness ingot goes through extruder to.make gauged wire. Wire goes through the swager and then its ready for reloader.
This forum discusses different mixes to make linotype
Linotype allows for hardness adjustment to the lead and does not require swaging.
You can also powder coat using a toaster oven
I have not tried this but know someone else who does… the accuracy is good enough he places in top 10 in 3 gun.

Thank you Namelus.
Not sure I will ever take apart batteries, but good to know.

One other thing if casting your own bullets from lead get a multi cavity one that is made heavy steel not light and thin. Warm up the caster before using. Use lubricant when doing this it has to be a special kind.
A single cavity one will take you too long to make bullets, it is a lot easier to open than a multi.
When melting any lead it has to be in well ventilated area with appropriate saftey gear. If outside it has to be rain protected.. water is super dangerous as at those temps it can cause explosion from turning to steam spraying molten lead…
We save up atleast a 50 gallon drum worth of lead before we do the purification to ingot.
If you have local dentist and they recycle the lead from the x ray bite plates ask if you can have them…

Bhahaha once upon a time this 17 yr old decided he’d just spit his skoal into the pot. Yup I, I mean that guy, learned that lesson quick. good times
