    With the thread about being ready to riot I wonder who has less then lethal munitions? I have a decent collection of them for my M203, Baton, rubber buckshot, sponge & smoke. No gas rounds. I figure if they are surplused I don't wan't them leaking around my house.

    I have a couple boxes of 12 gauge rubber buckshot too.

    Policemen arm themselves with such munitions. They are backed up by real munitions. Many other Officers and good communications. If a riot comes to my house, and a shotgun is available, it will be provisioned with buckshot. After all my backup is probably going to be my wife and she does not always communicate well.

    I guess a less then lethal warning shot to the ground counts.

    I'm not shooting the ground. Other then that. Ball ammo? It'll poke a hole and give a better chance of making it through to see another day. If the hole is in your head. I guess that's not so much non lethal.


    This is a bad situation at all four corners.

    I have a sling shot, some hockey pucks, a pail of rocks, and a very bright flashlight.

    I don’t need non-lethal ammo at my house. If the time comes where I need ammo, its going to be the real deal.

    If it gets that bad, my gate should have been a warning. 8 dogs are the closest thing I have to non-lethal. If necessary to shoot anything, lethal will be justified as well as probably needed.
    Rioting on my street would put you in a serious crossfire with my neighbors.

    Depending on the situation, I "might" use less than lethal to start with. It'll damn sure remind them for a while. Next, if necessary, would be lethal.

    I have 0 amount. Only the real thing. Depends on where ya live. If your in the city... maybe not a bad idea to keep from killing a bunch of morons doing moronic things, not necessarily hurting or killing folks. It would be good to bring the tempo down a notch around your domain.

    Less than lethal means your shot placement sucks.

    No less than lethal.

    Not my job to disperse a riot.

    Rioting requires a mob mentality. I’m not into that.

    If it got bad enough, I’m sure I’d be recalled to active duty.
