OtinTx posted a thread on the Zombie Max Ammo from Hornady. I thought I'd share the video they made on it. I think the video is cool but the ammo is silly personally.
Just want to stand up for prosecutors. Prosecutors take an oath to not only uphold the law but to seek justice rather than convictions. Any prosecutor worth anything has only one goal, and that is to obtain the truth and seek justice. As a prosecutor, if a shooting is justified, I don't lose sleep over not getting a conviction, and in fact, would likely never even present the case to the grand jury for charges.Prosecutors will do everything in their power to get a conviction. A lawful shoot is a lawful shoot, no matter what trigger weight you have, how many rounds you have on you, what kind of ammo, etc..
I was going at my statement from this point. Once a Prosecutor has decided to present the case, they believe they have enough evidence to convict. At that point, they will do what they can to get a conviction. I never meant to imply that they would falsify evidence or do anything underhanded.and in fact, would likely never even present the case to the grand jury for charges.
I see where you are coming from, but yes I would carry this ammo in my CC pistol.... I'd carry any ammo that was known as a good self defense ammo and Critical Defense seems to be a well made round that serves its purpose. Personally, I'm partial to Winchester Ranger T. Winchester doesn't even sell this ammo to the public. How would this work into a prosecutor's argument in a shooting? I can almost hear it now, "The defendant was using ammo that is so deadly that the company that produces it makes it available to Law Enforcement only."How far would a prosecutor go in a self defence case involving this ammo? All of the marketing for Zombie Max says this should not be used on humans, zombies only.....Rational people understand this is just cheeky marketing, but we have all read about that lawyer that wants to make a name and really goes into the silly side..... Would you carry this ammo knowing that it is just Critical Defence with a green plug?
Yes, Ranger T's are available to the public through dealers that have received them from Law Enforcement surplus stocks. Winchester supplies this ammo only to Law Enforcement. They do no supply it to dealers or to public individuals.
I'm not sure who they will distribute to versus who they wont but I buy this ammo, and carry it, from both online retailers as well as my local gun store.Yes, Ranger T's are available to the public through dealers that have received them from Law Enforcement surplus stocks. Winchester supplies this ammo only to Law Enforcement. They do no supply it to dealers or to public individuals.
Edit: I don't understand Winchester's reasoning behind their actions of only selling the Ranger T line to Law Enforcement, but it is true.
Excellent point. One of the reasons I carry the 115 gr 9mm Critical Defense load. I don't plan on shooting through cars, walks etc. I suspect if you hurt someone accidentally it would be serious troublewhat the civilian has against them is "excessive force" and an anti-jury will agree..
