    "Less-lethal"

    I wouldn't carry it unless you want an ineffective round. It's a deadly force scenario or it isn't.

    Not a change I would carry that in my ccw that may need to be used to save my life. Those rounds are only "less lethal" from a distance until they become lethal. In an attack where you would need to draw your weapon and fire, those rounds would be lethal at self defense range. No need playing around with rubber bullets when your life is in danger. Those rounds may be good for disbursing unwanted wildlife, that's where I would use those if I were to use them at all.

    +1 if you have to whip it out, the SHTF already. If the mere sight of a gun don't stop them, rubber bullets won't.

    You should pray everyday that you never have to defend your life with a firearm. Your gonna be sitting in court and all of your idiotic replies like this one will be blown up on a 6 foot by 6 foot screen for 12 people to look at. When I read replies like yours I get a hint of an understanding why the anti gunners look at us the way they do. Neat avatar, I think the 17 year old kid down the road has a sticker like that.

    Then why is lethal ammo the norm? A good shoot is just that. The last thing I ever want to do is have to pull the trigger on someone, but IF that ever is to be, it won't be a "less lethal" round.

    Shoot to kill. If you're just wanting to stun them, tell them you considered buying rubber bullets. While they laugh, run.

    When I took my handgun permit class the police officer that was teaching the class said and I quote " never shoot at a bad guy unless you are planning on killing him, wounding him will only get you sued" :thumbsup:

    That ammo is 3 bucks around. Figure need to run a few hundred rounds threw the gun to make sure if feeds. Ill stick to my ammo thats already been tested in my carry gun. If you make me pull it last thing I want is it to piss you off and not stop you.
     
  14. the ad for that ammunition states will not cycle in semi auto pistol.

    so hell no. if i cant diffuse the situation without lethal force then so be it.

    As others have stated, you are only to use your gun if the situation demands lethal force. At that point using non-lethal force is risking your life. I wouldn't even consider it.

    Why? His post was spot on. If I am pulling my gun I am doing it to kill, that is what it's all about. Not to fire a warning shot, not to wound. I am drawing because I accepted the fact that I have to kill somebody. Rubber bullets are cute and all but a firearm is a weapon, and a deadly one.

    And seriously, the guys internet talk forum avatar is not mature enough? Should his avatar be in buisness atire or something?:upeyes:
