hyped ammo to accomplish that.
But that doesn't alter the fact that the the Win Ranger 127 +P+
and the Speer Gold Dot 124 +P are proven rounds commonly used by LE agencies.. I retired from a 6000 member LE agency where
the duty ammo was the ranger and the gold dot is the issued NYPD
ammo.. The choice of the aforementioned rounds doesn't come from what we read in a gun magazine or solely about how far it penetrates ballistic gel. The choice was made as a result of exhaustive T&E and by the effectiveness of real life police shootings. And finally believe me, all the LEO's that carry the aforementioned loads, want to go home to their familes at the end of the day as much as you do.

No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.
Laws are restrictive but sometimes necessary to maintain a civil society. Rights are nonrestrictive but are always necessary to maintain a free society.
You are correct in stating some small Police Agencies are constrained by purchasing policies imposed upon them by local govt.
However, the ammo purchasing process you eluded to is not the norm in a progressive department these days. As retired police chief who managed a $25 Mil annual budget for 10 yrs., I can tell you that.
Meanwhile, the agencies I made reference to are free to select any ammo they choose... and do so as a result of T&E like I wrote... Not to mention if money were a huge issue, the ranger and gold dot would be out of the question since it is a relatively costly option.
My whole point in responding to Coffee was to let the members know
there are excellent alternatives to spending enormous amounts to purchase a hyped handgun magic bullet. There is no such thing. The only bullets close to magic come out of rifle barrels. He and others of the same mind set would be better served working toward consistent shot placement and getting multiple good hits.
