    Robert DeNiro did that in "The Deer Hunter."
    Yea, true however I bet he didn't really have hollow points in it 😁

      I understand that in filming the movie, DeNiro actually asked that a real live round be used in one of the scenes to add genuine fear in the actors' performance.

          While a handgun might not be the best choice in ending a fight.........they tend to be used often, due to being "handy".

            DeNiro dropped the F-bomb on Donald Trump on live TV during the Tony Awards.
            That tells you a lot.

              Some folks, through no fault of their own...will never be able to do that.
              Training may help. It might also mess things up.

              Some hunters flub stuff when a bit of pressure hits 'em.

              People are funny/interesting.
              The most attended handgun practice at the Club is IDPA. Some of them are crack shots under all variable conditions.

                I check with my LEO's about firearms they use and type of ammo. That is what I use in my carry gun. Nothing more and no hand loads.

                  I knew a fellow back in Texas who brewed up some very hot loads for his carry gun, and when I explained the perils of hand-loading defense ammo, he said he understood that a prosecuting attorney could use that against him if he were to be charged with murder in a self defense shooting.
                  He then repeated the old adage that it was better to be tried by twelve than to be carried by six.

                    Ammo is ammo. An attorney will argue anything. More likely one's social media ramblings will be used against them.

                    Police are agents of the courts, they are the enforcers of laws.
                    If they can have the hot specialty ammo, any good citizen can.

                    We don't have vests, radios or backup..........and contrary to the motto...........we have to protect our selves. "Protect and Serve" on a squad car is just a PR deal, the police, and laws.........won't protect you. Socially that's a side benefit from them enforcing laws...........but they are not and never have been personal bodyguards.

                    Don't care what the old lady down the street says.

                      Since commercial ammo is loaded in high volume and with monitoring systems, once could say handloads put the user at heightened risk of failure.

                      The issue with handloads would be something along the lines of cyanide encapsulated bullets, stuff like that.

                      A bullet being just a bullet.............no prob.

                      Then again, the lawyer can argue anything.
                      That doesn't mean they should be arguing it.
                      Your attorney ought to be good enough to win such nonsense.
                      If not, you picked wrong.

                        When it comes to carrying a weapon, there is a fine line between being prepared for something awful to happen, and praying for something awful to happen.
                        There are some of us who strap on a gun thinking, "Make my day."
                        If the prosecutor can portray you as a hot rodder, his chances of getting a conviction are greatly increased.

                          My guess is most bad guys are stupid enough to have a social media presence that will help the defense.

                          The problem comes from the media spin, trying to cover up a certain groups' poor behavior.
                          Its so blatant (Indianapolis news a nearby example)........it's laughable.

                            Don't go looking for trouble, in fact kind of work to avoid it.

                            Have some knowledge of what is going on in my burg........contrary to the liberal media spin.

                            People have no clue what's going on in the real world. And statistically they can be clueless and lead a pretty pleasant life.

                            Goody for them.
