Just discovered this thread. I've been wasting my life! I would think 6-8 flashbangs would be de rigour for any well equipped retail security specialist. Also I would consider a 45/70 Marlin cut down to a "mares leg" a la Steve McQueen would be invaluable for placing a stunning blow on a Kevlar vest equipped shoplifter.

I'm a bit surprised that this thread has made it to five pages without
someone bringing up Gecko45

The hoods around here certainly hate finding themselves on the wrong end of the F.A.R.T.

Had some fun in this yesterday and I'm also surprised the master of retail security wasn't mentioned sooner. After a night of soul searching, I've determined that I just don't have what it takes to ascend to the level of the F.A.R.T - so I guess I'll just remain an accountant...

I seen one last week. He was bad ass. His mullet blew in the wind as he walked down the middle of he mall.

He said that the Calico M-950 Liberty 9mm pistol was the best pistol for F.A.R.T duty. He also said it was best in a drop leg holster with 4 extra mags duct taped to your Level VI vest with 4 trama plates duct taped to it.

The problem with shooting through obstacles is that you dont exactly know where anyone is.A nice 1911 is plenty for what its worth.If your open carrying,it might be something to have a shotgun slung around your back.
