#1 I recall the North Hollywood shoot out. The police were seriously under-gunned. They had to obtain sufficient firepower from local gun stores to cope with a couple of bank robbers who had full auto AK-47s, body armour and armour-penetrating rounds. Police departments learned a lot of lessons after this shoot out. Same lessons applies to civilians for self-defence. You just never know when things are going to go to hell completely in a riot, a home invasion, a disaster, or a car-jacking.
