Hmmmm ... A valid line of thought. I suggest one change, though. Forcing the skirmish line to use 9mm would inflict cruel/abusive conduct (on the authorities, not the rioters). I propose putting aside our distain for the forty-stunted-and-wishful round, and supply .40s&w to England as a stopgap measure until training on the 10mm has been accomplished.

I don't know about the "New English Panzies" but the one's of yester years used to drag around the Webley 455's...that being said, I think they might appreciate those 45Gap rounds and some pistols to go with them! "C'est la vie".

Maybe the French can offer them a hand too! "C'est la vie".

Might I suggest that we do, indeed, help equip equip our English brohers and sisters with 10mm from the onset. However we must help them acclimate to the firepower in several phases.

Phase 1 ammo would be "FBI loads" from American Eagle. Phase two would step up the oomph a bit with UMC. Getting warmer.

Phase 3 would be a shipment of Double Tap ammo for medium-warm duty.

For the elite squads, we could send a selection of The Shadow's home cooked screamers. The operators must be proven, however, to be bestowed such an honor. Almost the same level of responsibility as possessing the keys to the nuclear football.

I assume by this you mean that holding the keys to the nuclear football has a lower stature than firing "The Shadow's home cooked screamers."

If the Irish were to read this thread it might put an end to the troubles, in favor of the Irish. Should we classify? or just drink on it.

I appreciate the benifits that the Brits could gain by such superior ammo but, I'll be holding on to my homebrewed screamers in all varities, as this maybe the currency of the SHTF aftermath!

You are prudent in retaining your stock of such superior ammo as a hedge against the SHTF aftermath. Besides, the Brits can always dip into their supply of 120mm APDS as a passable substitute for the full power 10mm loads.

Thanks for fixing that for me. Forgive my moment of cloudiness.

The Brits can't use 10mm because they are on an island.

If they aim toward France, they could coordinate the timing of their salvo and move the island farther away (but, then they'd have to lengthen the Chunnel).

Permit me the temerity of making a possibly mistaken criticism of this post. Salvo, to me, implies MULTIPLE rounds being fired. If I am in fact correct about this interpretation, then firing multple 10mm rounds at a rioter strikes me as a gross waste of valuable ammo.

Please advise me concerning this semantic issue.

Again? More electrons tied up in this thread? What to do? When will the fun stop? What happened to Mary Ann? Is her life story now turned into an epic women's prison story?
What does Mongo have to say about it?

The Dungeon Semantics Evaluation Team has teamed up with the Dungeon Thrematic Apperception Establishment to convene a tribunal to consider your pun. After a suitable initial session, we adjourned to give us a chance to sneak into the weekend Lagoon partying. We shall reconvene in subsequent plenipotentiary sessions on this topic at such time as we determine we actually give a damn.
