Not Quite a Saint
In 2009, George Floyd pleaded guilty for the 1st-degree felony assault and armed robbery he committed in 2007 and spent five years in prison. Records show that George Floyd impersonated a police officer to get a pregnant woman to open her door. Once the door was open, he pressed a pistol to her stomach. She backed and five other men followed Floyd in to commit a home invasion robbery.
It was his second conviction for armed robbery.
This doesn’t mean that the arrest situation that led to his death wasn’t criminally mishandled by the police.
Hennepin County medical examiners released the toxicology report on June 2nd, 2020 which stated that George Floyd was indeed intoxicated with Fentanyl and Methamphetamine and some compounds of cannabis and morphine at the time of his death. However, these were not termed the principal factors behind Floyd’s death.
The autopsy report claimed that George died due to cardiopulmonary arrest, listing “complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression.” as principal factors.
As per a recent autopsy news report, George Floyd was tested positive for coronavirus which may have aggravated his respiratory distress.
George Floyd had many arrests for narcotics possession and trafficking as well. Some say that he found Jesus before he was passing that counterfeit $20 that led to his final arrest. I don’t know what was in his heart (the medical examiners do, but I don’t).
Rifle Velocities in a Handgun
The S&W 460’s were not easy to come by when they first hit the market. I had to go on a waiting list for this beast. I know that you’re thinking that you couldn’t ever conceal one of those, but that’s not true. This weapon has a 5″ barrel. (when you watch the YouTube video, see how the watermelon disintegrates)
Jim (OLD NFO) and I had lunch at Hodad’s in San Diego some years ago and I was carrying the 460 concealed. I mentioned it to him after lunch when we were both drooooling over a woody station wagon parked outside. He didn’t believe me until I showed him.
But I admit that they are just on the large side for concealed carry. It’s a good car gun…in case an Antifa person reaches in to haul you out.
You can shoot .454 Cassul, .45 Colt or the .460 cartridges from this handgun. Watch how it goes through ballistic gel. High energy transfer. I recommend the Hornady 200gr Flex Tip. You don’t need to double-tap a meat target. You can, of course, but one round center mass is not survivable.
