    [QUOTE=GunByte;305397]Stop, take a breath and flip on your brain. Do you think that any law enforcement agency would use ammo that can penetrate a body and hit innocent civilians? They also have liaibility issues and would be in deep doo doo if they used bullets that penetrated the people they were shooting at. If you cannot recognized marketing techniques like this, LEO only - too lethal for civilians, I have a bridge to sell you. :)[/QUOTE\]
    Who cares about penitration! The cops miss all the time!



    Below is a chart from one department study (Miami) I found that might help you see what Iím talking about. As you can see, they have a 65% miss rate with revolvers and 75% miss rate with semi-automatics. Did you get that? 75% of the rounds fired are misses. And people are concerned about a problem with over- penetration?

    (Miami) Metro-Dade Police Department
    Statistical Abstract of Shooting Incidents, 1988-1994
    SHOTS THAT HIT INTENDED TARGET, BY TYPE OF FIREARM
    HANDGUN TYPE REVOLVER SEMI-AUTOMATIC TOTAL HIT PROBABILITY
    HIT SUSPECT 19 (35%) 17 (25%) 36 (30%)
    MISSED SUSPECT 35 (65%) 51 (75%) 86 (70%)
    TOTAL 54 (100%) 68 (100%) 122 (100%)

    Recently published Metro-Dade Police 1990-2001 shooting data shed more light on issues seen elsewhere. During that 12-year period, Metro-Dade Police fired about 1,300 bullets at suspects, and missed more than 1,100 times. This suggests that Miami police fared no better than a 15.4% hit ratio, even though many of these incidents involved suspects who were later determined to be unarmed.
    In yet another department study (NYPD), only 9% of the bullets hit their intended targets; 91% of the rounds fired MISSED.

    NYPD GUNFIGHT STATISTICS IN 2000
    HIT PROBABILITY 9%
    SHOTS FIRED PER GUNFIGHT 16.8
    SHOTS FIRED PER OFFICER 6.9
    We do not have an over-penetration issue; we have an issue around NOT hitting the bad guys.

    Here is an interesting article from HandGuns Magazine on the Critical Duty round.
    It states that Critical Duty is the ONLY ROUND to pass ALL of the FBI penetration tests!
    (ONLY ROUND??)
