Russia Toning Down the Police Weapons…

The Russian Interior Ministry is planning to spend 45 million rubles ($1.6 mln) on the purchase of 3,800 non-lethal pistols for police officers, which means that precinct inspectors, traffic and transport policemen on duty will be armed with PB-4SP Osa handguns instead of conventional 9-mm Makarov pistols…

Other words trade a 9-mm, gun-powdered propelled chunk of lead at 519 joules for an 18-mm rubber bullet with metal reinforced core that is equipped with a laser pointer. Its muzzle energy is limited by law to 91 joules. Big difference and this is a Russian answer to life in Russia…

This should make you think about what your police are carrying at your spot in the world…

Sometimes I just go – Hmm…

While the swat teams rule back at my home country, the Russians are going to use rubber bullets instead of real bullets…

Man, that coffee is really good right now…
