I agree OP that that the officer seemed a little casual on the mag change. Things did seem rather under control at that point… Nothing about it one way or the other really stood out to me other than it worked for the circumstances but looked cumbersome and lackadaisical if he were being shot at and in a fight for his life.
That Officer needs a larger caliber Just sayin If the perp was still moving after emptying the Mag. He needs bigger slugs.
That’s always an eye opener when you see these shoots. No matter the caliber handgun bullets flying at about typical pellet rifle velocities rarely have the DRT effect or show any initial effect at all unless the CNS is hit. Handguns cartridges compared to rifle are night and day. That’s a good reason to carry a gun with enough bullets and keep shooting as the officer did.
A .45 ACP with that big 230 grain bullet looks impressive but is traveling slower than a typical BB or pellet from a cheap $100 pellet rifle sold at Walmart. It’s not at all a reliable DRT man stopper unless the brain or spinal cord is hit.
