I have been wondering on the "what if's" scenario of using Winchester Ranger-T ammo for self defense and a prosecutors viewpoint. Recently I personally watched a week-long trial of attempted murder. It was not gun related, but I had the opportunity to see how over zealous and vindictive a prosecutor can be. So, since Ranger T's are not illegal, but Winchester restricts it from the general public, I could see a prosecutor attempting to use that against someone. At least I would not put it past the local prosecutor I watched in court recently. She went after any and every shadow of impropriety. I know every self defense shooting does not go to court, but for sake of argument let's say John Doe shoots a perp in self defense and for whatever reason it goes to court. I wonder what the real chances of a prosecutor using the type bullet to make any possible charges even worse than they are. Even though they are not illegal, I could see the prosecutor making a statement that they are restricted to LE only and then trying to cast a bad light upon the shooter to look bad to a jury. I am aware of the history of the original Talon and a coroner making a statement in defense of the police that they were unremarkable and did not do any damage that most any other hollow point would do. See below. "The forensic pathologist who performed the autopsies of the fatal shooting victims gave a detailed presentation about his findings at the 1994 IWBA Wound Ballistics Conference in Sacramento: "The 101 California Shooting: The Black Talon Bullet," Boyd Stevens, M.D., Medical Examiner, San Francisco, CA. He stated that the wound trauma produced by Black Talon was unremarkable, meaning the wounds were no different nor any more severe than wounds produced by typical JHP handgun bullets. Each of the victims incurred fatal injury because a bullet passed through a vital structure." For anyone wanting to read the whole article here is the link. http://www.firearmstactical.com/briefs2.htm#Black-Talon But back to the point of it being restricted by Winchester. Does anyone know of any history of a blood thirsty prosecutor making a big deal about the present day Ranger T's? And secondly, any type ammo? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
