    Do you know by chance where we could see that video of the killing and interview by chance?

    People have the wrong perception about 1 shot/1 kill-type scenarios. Unless they aim and hit the right areas, the human body can sustain some significant gunshot wounds. A good example would be the suspect who killed the NC Trooper after being shot 5 times at point blank range by the Trooper's .357. Not sure of those who have seen the video (from several years ago), but the suspect pulled a .22 during the traffic stop. The trooper fell on his back and kicked at the man while getting to his feet. I think the suspect got a couple of shots off initially, but they hit the trooper's vest and he returned fire, striking the suspect five times with his service revolver in the torso. The suspect got off another round that struck the trooper in the underside of the left arm while he was reaching for his shoulder mic (calling for backup). The .22 bullet struck his arm bone and traveled down, cutting his aorta (main artery to heart). The Trooper died minutes later. It is a heart-wrenching video to watch. The suspect was a lard a**, and he was alert and conscious when the following officers arrived. I think the fat absorbed most of the .357 rounds.

    Did I miss if he got him with his pistol or a long gun?

    Nice shot either way (taking down a vested criminal). I'd liked to know if it was a pistol shot. In that case, WOW, kick *****. Training and luck were on his side.

    Ok, a .308 round is a civilian 7.62x54 like the .223 is to the 5.56
    A AK-47 shoots a 7.62x39 The AK round to a .308 is like a .45 Gap to the .45auto
    basically we're talking about the same round. The projectile from an AK is that of a .308

    Also, having served multiple tours in Afghanistan and Iraq as an infantry soldier, I have alot of first hand experience with the AK-47 and that is ONE NASTY *** weapon to have to tango with
