Because it would be your only single-action revolver that will defeat soft body armor - because your pistol's ability to penetrate concealable armor is apparently a huge consideration in the post-apocalyptic world. 😎So what are the positive things about buying a .30 Carbine Blackhawk?
Calm down! You're not disagreeing with me; you're disagreeing with the Israeli IDF, instead. Besides neither I, myself, nor the IDF ever say that the FN FAL did not work. The reason the IDF got away from FAL's is because troops found them to be too unwieldy to use quickly and well inside of urban environments. The Tavor, on the other hand, with its multiple barrel and forend configurations has been working out well for them.Agreed about MOUT/Urban operations. But I disagree with you regarding the FN FAL's! Personally I humped an FN C1A1 and an FN C2A1 for over 13 years, from the west coast of Canada to the Egyptian deserts, from Fort Wainwright Alaska (in Jan/Feb) to exercises in Ft Lewis & Yakima in Washington state. The only time it failed was when you tried to use one of those stupid 30 rd mags with either gun. With the 20 rds mags they worked flawlessly, plus I bought my own Australian L1A1 that I used for competition out to 500 yds and regarding accuracy, in the '80's it edged out the M16A1's out at 500 yds on service condition matches.
Now how many people do you think, after "the day" will have body armour?Because it would be your only single-action revolver that will defeat soft body armor - because your pistol's ability to penetrate concealable armor is apparently a huge consideration in the post-apocalyptic world. 😎
And this was done not just from a pistol, but with softpoints from a pistol:
Probably some, but being such a small percentage of people, after "a day" which we almost certainly will not see in our lifetimes, and with most people already having guns (from modern AR's to 1800's-design leverguns) that do defeat soft armor, it's not a problem I'm going to put a lot of time into solving. Heck, even the glock 19 with 22tcm kit will defeat any soft armor up to IIIA; never mind what rifles would do to it...Now how many people do you think, after "the day" will have body armour?
