View Full Version : Takes more than 3-5 shots of 45 to stop

Have you seen many cases where it took more than three hits to center mass from a home owner (in their home/castle) to stop a 2 legged invader? This could be from 45acp jhp or 40 cal jhp. Maybe this happens in Police Work a lot more so. If so does this mean cover is much better than concealment when engaging if you have the choice? thanks

More complicated question than it sounds, bro. Cover stops bullets...concealment hides your position...and cover that is also concealment is obviously the best of both worlds. Doesn't much matter if you're cop, civilian, or soldier.

The homeowner faces the same attacker as the cop, just at a different time and perhaps in a different place. Bad guys have taken center chest hits from the most powerful weapons and stayed up long enough to return fire and kill. So, of course, have good guys and gals.

Alas, it's a business with few easy answers.
