Alleged Robber with ‘Assault Rifle’ Killed by Good Guy with a Gun

It was an armed security guard guarding an Apple Store during the dark morning hours.

I think this proves that a person trained well with a handgun, can neutralize a criminal with a carbine because most of the time criminals have little to no training with firearms.

I raise this issue because of the Parkland school shooting where people suggested that the Deputy in question, armed only with a handgun could not overcome the school shooter whom had an AR15.

The suspect, described as an adult Black male, attempted to disarm the security officer but was unsuccessful. The security officer was able to pull his weapon and fired multiple times striking the suspect. The suspect ran for a short distance and collapsed in the rear alley. The responding officers administered aid to the suspect prior to his transport to an area hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

I think it's interesting that the article mentions that the deceased was wearing body armor. Evidently didn't do him much good.

Good work by the Security Officer. One less piece of trash in the world.

That could just be the media or someone getting the information wrong. Often times those tactical vests with lots of pockets, and MOLLE loops are mistakenly identified as body armor or ballistic vests but they offer no ballistic protection at all. They are for carrying mags, flashlights, and all that tacticool stuff.

Just saying.

At close range a handgun is just as effective as a so-called "assault rifle". It might leave smaller holes but that's irrelevant. You're really not in trouble with a pistol until the range gets past the normal 7-10 yards distance where a man with a rifle has much greater hit probability.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

In close quarters and a possible contact tussle, I think a handgun would be an advantage.
