Quote from AGpennypacker View Post :
i love this! i have no doubt that you would have tried to save the day but for all your monday morning quarterbacking and fantasizing about getting a headshot on a moving/shooting target across a movie theater with your laser sight and ccw
As noted, a number of eye witnesses had him stationary a number of times... certainly he was stationary when switching weapons, or when the rifle jammed...

But really, you ever used a laser sight? The bullet goes where the red dot is. 100% of the time. There's nothing magic about a headshot with a laser, especially if the target stands still for a moment as many reports state he did several times.

Quote from AGpennypacker View Post :
, or hitting him in the legs, or knocking him to the ground with hit's to his armor ( and yes, it was armor the police chief confirmed "heavy body armor")
Where, specifically, did he "confirm" what type of what the guy was wearing?

I asked that in my last post, and you failed to provide a source when replying, so I'm asking again.

(but, assuming it was "normal" body armor like cops wear, getting shot hurts a LOT while wearing it... it won't kill you, but it'll feel like you got whacked in the ribs with a sledgehammer)

Quote from AGpennypacker View Post :
you have better odds of winning multiple lotteries than being in a similar situation.
No doubt. First entirely correct thing in your reply Smilie

Quote from AGpennypacker View Post :
however, when you continue to spout off die hard like fantasies of saving the day as reality you give the rest of the thoughtful and safe ccw'ers a bad name. so please stop...just please...stop.
Except I didn't do any of that.

It's kind of bizarre that you got that out of my post when it contained nothing of the sort.

It's like you're projecting your own concerns onto what other people, saying entirely different things, are talking about.


To sum up, what I actually said was:


1) I haven't seen any reliable source on WHAT he was actually wearing. We do have a copy of the receipt where he bought what is basically a vest with a lot of pockets that won't stop any firearm at all. He might have been wearing something ELSE too, if you have an actual source as to what it was, by all means provide it.

2) Even if he was wearing something like type I or II body armor, that doesn't make you superman where bullets harmless bounce off of you. It means you can survive being shot, not that you can ignore it. It will still hurt, quite a lot, and stand a decent chance of at minimum knocking the wind out of you and knocking you to the ground, often with broken ribs or other internal injuries. It will certainly knock you off your stride of random crazy slaughter at the least.

That's probably the biggest point, this completely false notion that there's "nothing" that could possibly have been done because he had body armor.

I mean, they sell that stuff online, if that were the case every criminal would wear it and our jails would be empty.


3) We have no idea if anyone WOULD have been able to do anything if they'd been armed. It's POSSIBLE they could have... if they were reasonable near the guy, they were armed, they had a decent shot, lots of ifs... But we do know that without such a person he wasn't stopped, and that it's possible that with one he might have been. We don't know for sure either way. We includes you.

4) In every case I can find where a civilian carrying concealed drew to stop a crime, he saved lives and/or stopped the bad guy, all without hitting innocent bystanders. Thus, conceal carry demonstrably makes people safer. Would it have done so in Colorado? Again, we don't know. Since it was a "gun free" zone nobody following the rules had the chance to find out. But it certainly wouldn't have been the first multiple-shooting stopped by a CCW. That is reality.

Quote from fcmem View Post :

The news reports he was walking up and down the isle but many witnesses say he was more or less stationary near the exit, some report it was not body armor but a tactical vest. other have said it was type IIA armor, which is not even remotely "heavy armor" most cops wear type II or IIA (im talking patrol not swat).

until the trial we wont fully know exactly what type of armor or vest he was wearing.
see below, but you made a thoughful and factual reply. i bolded the part that we are in total argeement.

WALL OF TEXT


Quote :
Police said the suspect entered the theater through an exit door dressed in full ballistics gear: ballistics helmet, tactical ballistic vest, ballistic leggings, throat protector, groin protector and black tactical gloves.
sauce [washingtontimes.com] that is a direct quote from police chief Oates at the press conference.

that doesnt sound like type iia to me. at least type ii, but we won't know until the trial.

let me be clear I AM NOT SAYING PEOPLE SHOULDN'T CC. however, i think it's just as idiotic to state things like "if a ccw was in the audience this wouldn't have gotten so bad" as it is to say, "if guns we're banned we wouldn't have these mass shootings."

i had to respond to this:

on many, many occasions i have used a laser sight. please tell me all about your non-magically headshots on live targets with your laser sight... i'm sure it does go on the red dot 100% of the time, once you've settled into a rhythm on a stationary target @ 10ft.

having a ccw doesn't mean you can suddenly fight crime, and if you go to the range regularly, or take a few tactical classes you are not a weapons expert. having a ccw means a great deal of responsibility and when you claim that there's nothing to a headshot on an armored assailant which has you massively outgunned and caught completely off guard, it makes you sound irresponsible and out of touch with reality.

i wish that someone was there that could have ended this before anyone was hurt, but that didn't happen and speculating in hindsight about the tactics that should have been used makes you (and by association, those that are pro-gun like myself) look like immature adolescents playing army.

For you guys to say that it would be impossible for anyone to save the day is a load of crap.

If you could forsee the future but couldnt stop it, if there were two theaters in which this event was going to replay, one theater with concealed carriers and the other without, I am sure I would be sitting with 90% of you in the concealed carrier room.

Too many people bashing for no reason on this thread. People have posted the different outcomes on what would of happened but you honestly do not know. BUT someone on a different gun thread made a good point, if I had a pistol with me I WOULD of taken shots at the shooter. I'm not doing it in an attempt to be a hero, as no one is thinking that at the time. If you have the resources at your disposal, USE THEM. If you ever have been shot at (I have while doing a tour in Afghanistan) then you know the feeling. If anyone took shots at the shooter then you would know he would've taken cover while trying to find out where the bullets came from. Unless he is hell-bent on killing EVERYONE in that theatre with no regards to his own life, more people would of been saved. If I was there with my family or friends I would protect them at all costs. Same way you would act if one of your family members or close friends were killed and the murderer was right in front of you.

I try to help people whenever possible, even in those circumstances where I would get hurt/killed. Think about it this way, would you rather see a child get hit by a bus, and live with that the rest of your life? or would you try to save him/her? Not everyone is selfish human being in this world.

That's part of my very point. We don't know what he was wearing exactly. Thus the folks who are saying "He was wearing body armor, shooting him wouldn't have done anything" have no idea WTF they're talking about. Even the quote from the police chief just say ballistic vest... that can be literally anything as far as what effect being shot wearing it would have.

Good thing I didn't say that then.

What I did say was that we'll never know, but if someone had been armed there was a chance they might have improved the situation.

They might have not drawn at all, and made no difference too. But it's possible they've have helped, to one degree or another. See again the folks who insist since he shooter had body armor he was superman and nothing could slow him down.

That's my point. If the guy stood still for a bit you put the dot on his head and pull the trigger. This isn't to suggest a head shot is "easy" but it's nowhere near the "million to one" shot others suggest, especially with a laser.

But let's forget that entirely for a second, let's say you just put it center mass... you're gonna hit center mass. What you're not gonna hit is a bunch of random civilians. And even in a vest that's gonna hurt the guy, slow him down, and possible stop him (depending on the vest, the ammo used, etc)

Good thing, again, I didn't say that.

Nor do I think carrying makes you a superhero.

I'm not even saying I'd have drawn if I'd been there and carrying... because there's half a dozen factors that might've played into that choice I, and you, and anyone else not there, do not know.

But I do know CCWs have stopped crimes in the past, including multiple-victim shootings. On quite a lot of occasions.

It could have done that here. Possibly. That's all I'm really saying. We've no idea either way.

But the folks who insist they are sure a CCW would've just gotten more people shot are just as bad, worse if they discourage responsible carry in general, than the ones who think they'd have just done a rolling-2-pistol-shooting-dive to the tune of Blaze Of Glory and taken the guy out.


As I said, on net, conceal carry saves some lives and stops some crimes, some of the time. Some of the time (when no one draws) it makes no difference at all. Either might have been the case if someone had been carrying in CO.

But in none of the cases that I've found (and if anyone has any facts the other way, by all means provide em, I haven't found em) did it make things worse... which seems to be the reaction from anti-gun folks anytime someone mentions it's a shame nobody was armed there who could, possibly, have done something if the situation allowed it.

Good price on a gen4, TU.


Didn't they change the rules sometime back that you had to have the membership a year or something before you get the discount?
I know a lot of people would sign up to GSSF just to get a discounted glock.



I have the same concern if it was me in that theater but frankly I've come to the conclusion that a CC'er could NOT have made the situation worse even if they missed the shooter and clipped a few people.

71 people shot, how many was in the theater? 200? 300?
If someone had tried to stop him and lets say they accidentally shoot and kill 2 people on accident but stop the shooter from shooting another 20-30 people.. sounds kinda cold but it's a good trade off.
But it's all speculation we'll never know because no one could carry there, no gun zone..
The murderer is a coward, I'd be willing to bet if someone got a shot off and hit him, he would have hit the floor crying for his mommy.

I think that the politics of guns needs to stay out of these threads...I'm wading through just trying to findou tmore info about the deal and all I see is mud slinging from both sides of the fence about the recent shooting in Colorado. Go make a thread in the podium or something.

Went to my local gunstore today, found the Glock 23 GEN 4 only runs me about $429 for military pricing. Only bad thing is they are sold out until they are able to restock which might take a month or two. If you are in law enforcement or military, local gun shops might be your best bet to get these with discounts! Plus, the barrels are interchangeable for different ammo types.
