    Too long of a list to post, but my go to is 7.62x39 8M3. 00 Buck in the Benelli. And Federal HST 124gr+p in the Glocks. 35 miles outside the city so ain't too concerned, but am geared up and ready to rock if necessary (AKA "all h*ll breaks loose"). Also have fire extinguishers all over, and can always fall back to "the Alamo" for the last stand. :)

    Most likely scenario, I'll be watching on TV with some popcorn. :D

    Why not a 12 gauge double barrel? That would scare the crap out of me if pointed my way. Or a larger pickup, work truck? We haven’t seen a smart, dedicated attack yet.
    Heck so far the active shooters who can shoot thankfully have been rare.
    Someone who thinks, plans, has no hesitation to kill anyone... that scares me.

    You haven't heard of charter buses bringing rioters to locations?[/QUOTE]

    That's funny! Yes I have but never out in a place like here. If Ohio has a county known for "The County of shootin stuff", it's here. We have school busses, a charter never, and if one does show up it won't make it far of that I'm sure. Our police agencies are loved and the feeling is mutual and most policing is with Sheriff's and well they're the best of the best! Oh and no democratic agencies to be found.

    Something, something, .....beer when it’s near, brandy when it’s handy.


    what ever I have in hand... how much does FMJ penetrate skinny jeans?

    http://www.ar15.com/ammo/project/self_defense_ammo_faq/MOLON/Nosler 77gr CC.htm

    Well zhits link no worky.
    Nosler uses thinner j4 jacket typically cost less than the serria's . Actually fragmentation a tiny bit better than the serria's.

    Whatever causes the most suffering. Wounding always has the biggest effect on the victim's cohorts.

    Pistols will have JHP. My SKS ammo is all pre-Y2K Russian ammo, whose bullets have a teeny little hole drilled in the tip, so it could be legally imported as sporting ammo. I don't think it will expand a whole bunch.

    I don’t see that action coming to my neighborhood but if it did, the initial rifle and pistol mags are loaded with JHP. TEOTWAWKI would lead to FMJ.
