    Should have shot at the shooter, not the tire.

    Anyone know how much cash is in an ATM? Seems like a lot of work just wondering what the payoff is.

    In the range of $10K, more in a high-traffic area.

    $200-400/day is the default limit for most ATM cards. Depending on the traffic at the individual ATM or branch, 25 customers - just 2 per hour - could wipe it out.

    A lot depends on location, I once asked a guard servicing one at a truck stop and was informed in some areas they may have up to $50,000 at a time.

    It's only paper these days anyway. They're cranking it out like toilet paper in the Trillions.

    Yep, a lot of people think they are going to be just as accurate as they are at the range when trading shots with someone in real life.

    You'd be amazed at how many actual shootouts occur at 3-4 feet and no one is hit even though they emptied their guns. And that's with LEO's who we presume are more accustomed to the notion of actually being in a shootout.
