Mentioned the epoxy filled, FMJ, at high pistol velocity.
Those bullets aren't a new idea. A few decades ago, they were highly touted as being the cat's whiskers for issue to defensive forces where limited penetration was required. Protection of nuclear facilities and other such places were, supposedly, what was on the collective Regulatory mind.
That idea got some traction 'till it was pointed out that, if the opposing attacking forces were to wear defensive gear vests, they were immune to defensive fire and were, in essence, home free.
It was a short lived idea that refuses to go away. Katie Curic once asked in an interview of s Sky Marshal why he didn't shoot to wound.
