S.W.A.T. TV "Controversial Questions" Segment

Throughout the taping of the first season of S.W.A.T., we took the opportunity to ask our Guest Instructors what they thought about some potentially touchy subjects.
They were the kind of questions that, in my experience, either create arguments or disagreements or polite nods when instructors are asked in front of one another.
We took the opportunity to ask them these questions alone and we'll be splicing their responses together back to back so you get a feel for how these instructors really feel about some of the most compelling topics in the training industry.
I'll be starting new topics before each Segment Airs so you guys can express your opinions and then watch to see who agrees with you!

Meanwhile, you can use this discussion to guess what the questions might be.

Shoot to kill, shoot to stop?
9mm vs. 45? or Glock vs. 1911?
Point shooting vs. sights?
AR vs AK
Dogs vs. Cats
Can you drink red wine with fish?
Will IPSC hurt your in the 'real world'?

I give up.

Can Batman beat Superman?

Rob - "S.W.A.T. TV"? Didn't know it had started. What channel is carrying it? (There's no info about it on the website.)

Glenn,

You guessed it, but we went with can Wonder Woman beat Supergirl to appeal to the female demographic.

Mal,

Starts airing in Jan on Outdoor Channel. If you are on Facebook, you can search me out and see the trailer at the S.W.A.T. TV Fan Page, otherwise, there are a couple versions on youtube already and an expansion to the S.W.A.T. website is underway.

I was thinking it might be whether the Sarah Palin sextape is worth watching.

Yes, but then Bats was convicted in court for stating that he used the batarang to kill Superman rather than just stop him.

Sorry, Rob - the show sounds great.

That should be an episode - will it hurt you in court. Mas vs Ninjaman from the Internet!
