A Few Things To Discuss – Montgomery Co, MD. Shootings Eulalio Tordil

Mongomery mall shooting

Today police finally caught the shooter, a Federal Protective Service employee who shot a woman in a Prince George’s County MD school parking lot Thursday 5 2016. Then again today Friday the 6th he shot others at Montgomery Mall and Aspen Hill grocery store. So far two victims died and other two are injured in the two days shooting by one assailant.
More details on local ABC and WTOP news.

First I want to briefly touch on 3rd party intervention in my previous article What Not To Do As A Concealed Carrier & The Good Samaritan. We as a law-abiding armed citizens have responsibilities to protect ourselves and love ones from violence. Not to use our guns to play police and intervene a 3rd party incident, unless with certain “exceptions” I mentioned  in the article linked above.
What’s worse with this case is that the woman at the school who intervened (the news media called them good Samaritan 😕 ) wasn’t carrying a gun, and foolishly walked up to a derange man with a gun. I can’t believe this people, how naive they are? And of course this occurred in Communist Maryland and on school property. Why walked in to a fire without a fire extinguisher?

.223 79 grain DRT Elite Series – Unlike Any Other .223/5.56 round (Video)

223-drt-elite

Some ammo lines don’t perform as advertise by their manufactures. How does the DRT Elite Series in 223 perform? First, let’s examine the physical construction.

The round is barrier blind lead free and produces a lot of kinetic energy when shot. It is a 79 grain Flat Base Hollow Point bullet. The bullet is long with all that mass which, in turn, produces such mass amounts of energy.
Advertise muzzle velocity is 2600 FPS producing 1186 foot-pounds of muzzle energy.
Thanks to YouTuber GY6vids for testing this round through various barriers.
He used two guns to in this test.
The first is a Remington bolt action 700 5R with a 20 inch barrel and 1/9 twist.
The 2nd rifle is an AR-15 with a 1/7 twist match grade barrel

As the video shows the round penetrates the gel, wood, shirt, meat and windshield with no problem, however, it was only able to penetrate one block of concrete instead of two which is just as impressive.

If you want to be an effective concealed carry citizen, consider FPF Training

fpft-gunfight

My review and experience with FPF Training.  

As an IT professional with no firearms experience in 2012, to taking my first basic pistol course at a local gun range in early 2013 in order to meet the basic requirements for my concealed handgun permit. I said I’m not sure I have what it takes to effectively use my force multiplier on physical threats that may come about my day-to-day life.
Fortunately, I found John Murphy with FPF Training. A former Marine Corps and who is highly qualify in bringing you comprehensive knowledge for the armed citizen. All his courses are taught in mind with the context of a plain cloth civilian who carries his/her concealed handgun every day. The private range is located in Culpeper Virginia. It’s close to Shenandoah National Park/ Skyline Drive, so the view is nice when driving there.

I took three classes taught by John.
