    Good going for the bystander to aid the officer. Too bad the perp didn't have enough sense to quit while he still had a chance.

    If you want proof that handgun ammo sucks, this story is a reasonable data point. One abdominal hit with an unspecified caliber, probably 9mm, plus four torso hits with a .45 and the guy is still fighting. It took the headshot to end it.

    Here is a really great article detailing the incident by a CCW instructor: The Shootist: One Man Got Involved. The Perry Stephens/George Temple Incident

    Since I live in an open carry state then maybe Ill start sporting an AR pistol.

    Seriously though, I have often wondered if people CC or OC them considering they are "pistols" not SBRs

    One should always expect that only a headshot will end it. Shots to the body may end him in a few seconds, minutes or hrs, a CNS is the only sure way to stop it NOW.

    That being said, most perps will turn tail and run with shots fired at them, not to mention a hit anywhere on the body. The determined ones will require a CNS (central nervous system) shot to persuade them to stop.

    2006 or 2012, doesn't matter. Still a good story and a good ending.

    After reading this superb article, I'm struck by two things:

    1. The whole incident must have happened in a very short time frame.
    2. Perry Stephens, the bystander, was very lucky that a responding officer didn't shoot him dead.

    Can you imagine an LEO coming on the scene and seeing one man beating an officer and another man standing over both of them holding a gun? This would make an excellent scenario to discuss.

    I hate how some people make things into a race issue... this, as I have stated on another thread, is why I don't like hate crimes legislation...

    I agree, however there are those who only find happiness throwing stones.
