    2. She was shooting to defeat body armor defense.
    3. She made hits on and off body armor (has it been disclosed if he had armor?)
    4. At some point her shooting focused on the weapon instead of the target (COM, head)
    1) I'm not sure firing 12 rounds at a BG would be considered 'shooting to wound'. She may just have been jerking the trigger & pulled the shots low.
    2 & 3) Don't know if there was armor involved.
    4) Possible, but if he had weapon shouldered, the hand wound could have been a COM shot. Her focus?---who really knows....

    Absolutely, I say they were misses.

    Guys I think some might be forgetting that she was shooting with a pistol from a fair distance at someone who was SHOOTING BACK .

    First of all under ideal range conditions VERY FEW people shoot pistols well enough to hit vital zones (nipples to neck triangle and eye sockets) at distances over 15 yards when they are under ANY kind of stress.

    Second ,even fewer will be able to do it with the attendant adrenaline dump that folks tend to get when people are shooting at them.

    Third, even FEWER will be able to score vital zone hits on a moving target...especially if they are moving too.

    So she didn't hit him in the brain, heart or spine. So "F"ing what? She stopped him from continuing to shoot back didn't she?

    Anyone here VOLUNTEERING to get shot in the wrist and leg with a 9MM? Target shooting and shooting people in extreme interpersonal conflict are night and day different. Did she score "A zone" hits? No. Did she achieve the desired result? Yes.

    So I think she did FINE.

    That's why its ridiculous to think that she was shooting to wound and was aiming for his extremities.

    Exactly. People need to get out and shoot more and watch less TV.
