    Shotguns are versatile, can be readily repurposed to fire less-lethals and CS gas canisters. Can also be used in breaching. So yes on that one.

      Shot guns will always have a place for police for the reasons listed here . They are also good prison guard weapons and used by MPs for these reasons. Another benefit is that for people close to prisoners they have extremely good stopping power even at close ranges where rifles might tend to needle through. There have been a few cases (e.g. the first US losses in Afghanistan) where prisoners have been able to overwhelm their captors because their service weapons don't put down the guys charging them, allowing them to grapple them even if they are lethally shot. But a shit gun has the best chance of instantly fricking someone's CNS. The other benefit is that guards further away can have rifles, so even if a prisoner gets a shotgun away from a guard it is low capacity and outclassed.

      Revolvers not so much. They did make tactical revolvers in the early 2000s on the idea that a revolver is less likely to jam if banged up against walls, ballistics shields, etc. but it never really caught on, probably because it simply isn't worth the capacity trade-off.

        But what about a situation were you need to be armed but you will probably not get into any intense firefight and anything less lethal won’t cut it cause it you’ll be dealing with a crack head or something

          What about it? Anon wasn't trying to say that a shotgun was good for every situation, he was listing a number of situations common to law enforcement where shotguns would be useful. There's clearly some situations where other weapons make more sense. That doesn't stop shottys from being highly useful to cops though.

          it's not like it can't be done, it's just less efficient than a rifle

            I would argue it's more efficient in an environment where the combatants are unarmoured and there is a concern of overpenetration. Rifles rounds don't stop as readily as a pellet of 00 buck would, and even if it makes it through the wall, it's got a lot less ass than a rifle round, so it probably isn't going to kill anyone even if it ends up in them unintentionally.

        Wait is that a Mossberg 590 with an AR style grip? How did I never notice that. I always thought he had an 870 with a full stock pistol grip. I’ll have to watch the first season again. And just the first season.

      Realest take. Police are low I.Q. government employees like any other, and are not super heroes, or particularly competent, no matter how much "training" they claim to receive, it is typically shorter and less intense than what a hair stylist can expect to have to go through.

      Not when they have to go against 5 Tyrones with extendos. That shit only works in the boonies where the most action a cop is likely to see is a drunk wife-beater who comes at you with a tire iron or some shit.

          Bro it was totally real. Just ignore the recon plane and helicopter that arrived shortly before the shooting began and shortly after the "shooter" was "killed".

    Revolvers are all the average cop should be allowed to carry. Their uniforms need to be demilitarized as well. They are armed like an occupation force and they look like one as well.

      Based. I wish I was older during the zombie boom. I was still in highschool at the time. But man I was all over zombies. WWZ, zombie survival guide, walking dead, deadliest warrior, doomsday preppers, L4D2, etc. I miss those days. You could prep and openly talk about survival strategies without being cringe. I was hoping Army of the Dead would breathe life back into zombie movies, pun intended, but it never did.

          Very cool. Zombies were great until people started try harding too much. It quickly devolved into “we achktually a dead body wouldn’t work and would fall apart within a few days because the nervous system and lunges etc, also everyone would just starve to death or die to infection because lack of supplies”. There’s a place for discussions on long term survival, but zombie conversations are not one of them. Zombie lore is all about fun and combating zombies. Survival aspect was always second tier and was always implied to be short term survival, not restarting civilization.

    No, every police agency should give all of their old useless revolvers and shotguns so they can free up space in their arsenals. I'll make sure those old guns are kept out of the hands of criminals.
