MET to use Hollow Points
 
SOURCE

Pretty much standard issue when expected to encounter terrorist bombers. Makes sense when you think about it. Could be better at stopping them setting off a bomb.:D

You do realize the irony that hollow points are used (IIRC) exclusively as the self-defense ammunition of choice, and (again, IIRC) exclusively by police departments in the US?

There seems to be some belief that it is possible to HUMANELY shoot people. They seem to be overlooking the original purpose in shooting a person, which is to STOP THEM FROM DOING WHATEVER THEY ARE DOING !!!!

Lordy, if they ever required an IQ test to be able to run a newspaper, the newsstands would be EMPTY.

Difference between these folks and an old style TV- the TV had a knob where you could turn up the brightness.

I think that they should first ask the bad guy how he os she would feel like before they can shoot them. Maybe we can even ask them about their chilhood .:rolleyes::rolleyes:

I read that on the BBC earlier today and was laughing out loud in my office.

I can't believe ANYONE would use hollow points for ANYTHING!!! other then what they were intended for which is killing someone who needs to be stopped from doing what they're trying to do while saving lives at the same time.

I think the most human way to shoot someone is a hollow point to the face, at least they wont feel it.

I find it rather odd- this is coming from the nation that CREATED the Dumdum bullet in the first place. Expanding bullet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
