A)I don't know -- this sounds a lot like cop-haters who say, "Why didn't the cop just shoot the knife out of the bad guy's hand instead of killing him?"
OK, so someone is facing a threat with body armor, and it's no problem because he'll just headshot everybody? Maybe for some of you that's no problem, you shoot the wings off flies (even while moving, right?), but for average humans like me, losing 50% of the available target area means it's a much harder shot I must now make, and I shoot at targets a lot -- I can say that's a big deal for us normal humans.
And I've never been in a gun fight before, but maybe the gun fights y'all are involved in require a full, written disclosure of body armor before the shooting starts? Because it seems to me you might not know if someone is wearing body armor or not, so you shoot at each other, your first shot (which would have perfectly bisected his heart, of course) is stopped by his body armor, but the bad guy's shot...it just blew your spine out, so, um, "adjust and shoot the head"....well, even for those wizards who can't miss...too late!
Agreed. For us normal folks, that greatly reduced target area means we have to take a longer time to aquire a better sight picture. The longer we're aiming, the longer we're vulnerable, because the part that's aiming is not behind cover.
Watching the video, I think the main intent behind the creation of this ammo was inline with the 2A thinking -- the citizens need to be armed as well, because the government might become the Bad Guy. So if the government is sending their jackbooted thugs at you, and they're all wearing armor, then the creators of this AP round seem to think citizens should have the power to defeat that armor.
Think of your possible scenarios like a bell curve, your likely scenarios are there in the middle and probably don't include people in armor.
B) why carry a specialized bullet that is decidedly inferior for anything but poking a tiny hole in textile based armor. What does its ballistics look like after passing through a iiia vest?
C) thats why I carry a G17 quite often. Plenty of rounds for all targets
