    Getting annoyed with "Stupid" - DEA TV reality show

    I was subjected to yet another moment of sheer stupid the other night.

    My wife was watching the TV reality show DEA. They were prepping to take down a "Kingpin" in a marijuana sting. One of the DEA agents was flapping his lips at the camera...

    (NOTE - I am quoting from memory)
    "This guy is known to have a MAC 10 machine gun loaded with Teflon coated bullets, used to penetrate our bullet proof vests..."
    I threw up in my mouth a little bit. Your average Joe or Jane, and the media I can accept them saying as much, since they know no better. But a LEO?!?

    This is the second time out of 3 episodes that I watched this year that some DEA agent was an absolute idiot. I keep trying to convince myself that the whole thing (DEA series) is staged and all are actors, but I thought for sure I would have heard something to confirm this by now.

    ... watching the TV ...
    That's all ye need know. That explains it right there.

    Pretty sad, though, when the ignorance and lack of intelligence is shown to have permeated every corner of every aspect of our society. Putzes on the street, those with badges, those in positions of authority, those we elect, those with tons of money ... very few seem immune.

    Just think about it. What TV "Reality Show" isn't scripted BS? While they may be DEA agents, //i'd guess they've been told what to say and when.

    You never know if any KTW ammo is still lurking out there. I saw some at a display years ago at a gun show. Not for sale, but who knows where it all went.

    I know what you mean. I was watching it once and they were searching a dealer's apartment and found a gun. It looked like a Kel Tec Sub-2000. The Agent referred to it as a Mac-10 (I think). I do know that whatever they called it, they were nowhere near the correct designation.

    There are a couple easy "Home Brew" methods of doing essentially the same thing which I am sure the drug gangs are aware of and is only effective against soft armor not tac vests. But the statement for the camera was probably just for "dramatic effect".

    When the KTW came out decades ago our department tested some of the 45acp against Winchester 230gr Ball and found it preformed no better than the ball ammo.

    Watching DEA and other LEO shows always make me wonder what smart criminals are able to get away with, these guys always seem to be chasing the low hanging fruit.

    KTW is effective in penetrating armor when fired out of a Glock 7, a ceramic gun made in Albania.

    These guys who participate in the reality shows make the ones that are on the streets and actually know what is going on look bad

    Ive heard Leo's on COPS refer to a 30-30 as an armor piercing rifle. Im sure most any rifle would pierce a ballistics vest only rated for pistol rounds.
