Re-watched the vid of the Las Vegas Metro PD taking down the murder suspects. Standard loadout should be at least 80 rounds....


I've rewatched this vid and this dude is legit. 

Good shoot.

So why am I talking now?  It's about what the standard loadout for patrol should be.  If you're on the streets and you're not walking out the door with 80 plus rounds then you're wrong or have a death wish or work in Mayberry USA.

My thinking?

Assuming you're rocking a Glock 19 then I'm thinking 3 mags on your warbelt, one in your weapon and a 33 round mag on your vest.  Many carry backup guns on their vest so that might make the equation a bit more difficult if you're not using Glocks (the 26 can handle the larger mags of its brother without difficulty), and if you don't go with a backup then you're adding/subtracting issues if the fight goes sideways.  If you're on the ground in full weapon retention mode then its possible the baddy could go for your backup instead....of course so could you so that adds dynamics to the situation that I won't even touch on.

But back to the vid.

I didn't count and couldn't see his belt but I'd guess if the firefight lasted much longer he would have been down to just a few rounds in his last mag.

If you're motorized then go heavy with your personal loadout (ie...in patrol).

Oh and LEO's!  Get your Dept to get you some patrol carbines!  Mount them in your car where you can get to them (NOT IN THE FUCKING TRUNK!!!).  One AR in the hands of the LEO would have sliced that SUV to ribbons and made a fair fight one sided...the way it should be!

Stay safe boys....it's a wild world.
