General Non-Firearms Discussion / Re: Criminal genius: slidelock robbery
« Last post by Kaso on Today at 01:14:14 AM »
After finding the video and watching it...  My takeaway is *this* is why  you want to pay your employees more than $8/hr.  Maybe then they would give a care.  I understand not wanting to risk one's life for a few hundred dollars, but the employee in the video seemed to genuinely 'not care' that he was handing over the loot.

No it doesn't.

By him successfully robbing that Jimmy John's, it only reinforces him to repeat his stupid tactics elsewhere. Btw, that was some of the clearest HD security cam footage I have ever seen. Jimmy John's must put money into 4K CCTV or something. Most other places security footage I've watched looks like the security camera was a russet potato, with a dusty lens.

Actually, the 'suspect' was arrested pretty quickly (I can't bring myself to say "freaky fast")... probably due to either a) the HD quality of the surveillance camera, or b) doing something else equally stupid somewhere else, or c) both.

Handguns / Re: The Down Side of Magnum Ammo.

Agreed.  "Self defense" can cover a lot of territory.  Personally I wouldn't recommend popping a grizzly bear in the a&& with either round as you might get a lesson in "wildlife management".   :shocked    On the other hand, if the potential target is likely to be an unarmored human being I think either round would serve you well.  Most self defense loads these days are loaded with low flash powder and are less likely to cause a blinding muzzle flash in the dark but muzzle blast and recoil will always be harder to handle in the magnums.  If you are forced to fire a magnum revolver without hearing protection - especially inside a building - the muzzle blast can be disorienting.   Non magnum rounds will be a little easier to take but even those can deprive you of any real sense of hearing for an extended period.  Not an insignificant factor if you are facing more than one opponent.   :hmm

Out in the woods with the chance of running across a bear or a wolf or even a rabid skunk I usually opt for the .357 magnum or a .45 ACP +P or Auto Rim +P but around the house or in the car I'm generally content with a .38 Special or a standard pressure .45 ACP.

:facepalm   I was SOOO hoping the young man behind the cash register had calmly pulled out a gun and shot that jackwagon in the blue hoodie right in his stupid, ugly face.  Does that make me a bad person?   :hmm

My father actually has a list of us children that he definitely does not want caring for him in his old age.  Surprisingly, I am one of the few not on that list.  Which is a joke in itself...

It's because you have a caregiver streak that is a mile wide  ;).

No, not at all. Hell, I have a list of one's I do and don't want to take care of me if I ever randomly need to be in the hospital.

"Look nurse ____, I like you as a person I just don't want you anywhere near me if I am circling the drain."  :neener

Is it bad that I thought of a specific nurse when I read that joke.   >:D
