You are probably right Tin. Nevertheless I'm not pulling that police scenario out of thin air. I have actuall SEEN this happen and it weren't pretty. The perp in question was an armed robbery suspect, with three cruisers in pursuit. He ran off the road and into an onion field, then bailed out .357 revolver in hand. The pursuing officers were on the main paved street and OUT came the high cap nines. It sounded like a 4th of July grand finale'. They each reloaded TWICE before one grabbed the shotgun and FINALLY put the guy down. No hits from the pistols at all.. I'm glad this ocured in an open field and that I was BEHIND these guys on the other side of the road. The perp got off three rounds and just stood there in the open waving his piece and screaming like a banshee. I was watching from under my pickup and wishing I was somewhere else.. I do , however believe that I could have hit the creep , very easily, with my .45. He was about fifty yards out in the field and a clear target. After this I had SERIOUS doubts about 911 as a defensive measure of first line status.
