Wow - LE takes shot square in the jaw and keeps on fighting.

Really good Podcast. I would highly encourage you to give a listen. Maybe you've heard this story before but first time for me. So for those who haven't it's pretty good. It's about one of four gunfights that Jared Reston, who is a LE in Fla has been involved in.

Amazing the guy survived 7 shots of 45 fmj, first one hitting him right in the jaw but he kept on fighting. Incredible.

This really should put to rest the caliber wars and capacity. Granted it's LE but the overall point is pretty clear, at least to me.

Pretty amazing interview. Hope you enjoy it.

Mr. Reston showed that even with a potentially debilitating wound, his desire to live, won-out over the emasculated mindset and lack of training found in today's PC world... Giving-up is easy, whereas ignoring, or incorporating pain, give motivation, the impetus to survive.... In the days of the Olde West, the day of the gunfighter lasted but forty years, ended by the use of the telegraph, soon to be followed by the telephone.

Gunfighters plied their trade, used their skills, to either kill, or be killed...

Mr. Reston was not ready, nor willing, to just lay down and die... There, folks, is a MAN... Wish America had more like him...
