U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Picture this: It is 2:00 AM. You hear a window break, followed by the sounds of footsteps headed toward your bedroom. You get out of bed, pull out your trusty .45 and confront the perpetrator who seems to be wielding something in his right hand. You aim your weapon with hands shaking and beads of sweat in your eyes. You can hardly breathe. Your heart feels like it’s about to jump out of your chest. You close your eyes and pull the trigger. Next thing you know, you see a bright flash of light and hear a sound like someone has knocked on your front door. You missed….unfortunately, he didn’t.
Also, consider this: In 1990, the NYPD officer hit potential was only 19%. That means 81% of the rounds they fired at criminals missed their target. At less than three yards, they hit only 38% of the time. From 3-7 yards, 11.5%, and from 7-15 yards, only 9.4%.
What is a fair fight? It has been said that a fair fight is a fight where you have a 50% chance of losing. Patriot Ballistics feels that it is their job to assist in decreasing those odds to better insure your survival. Many manufacturers focus on the “lethality” aspect of a critical defense cartridges by pushing the limits of physics and material sciences, while at the same time ignoring the most crucial element: the operator. Patriot Ballistics takes pride in its philosophy, of “K.I.S.S.,” where we implement simple solutions for ignored problems.
We can all agree that a situation, such as the one described above, is horrible. Nobody would ever want to face that scenario, but unfortunately, today the threat is a real one. High stress, surprise, limited visibility, limited time; hitting a target is difficult under the best circumstances. How do you raise the odds of hitting your target? Machine gun? Shotgun? You have your .45, and that’s all.
We just solved the problem.
So here it is. It is not the answer to every problem on the planet but a problem solver for some. Our cartridge was designed and is built using the highest grade materials available, implementing the most stringent quality control process in the market to ensure functionality. What does that mean? We have been able to achieve velocities greater than 1,000 fps and flight characteristics surpassing typical .45 ACP cartridges currently available.
Our projectile is incredibly stable even at the increased pace, something easily witnessed in the high speed video. Our secondary measure, “FLAK,” shows excellent concentricity in firearms of all sizes and the 233.6 grains of total inert mass will function efficiently even in the most concealable firearms.
When you can’t afford to miss; when your life and the life of your family depends upon that first shot; in perhaps the highest stress moment of your life, you want to make sure that the first bullet in your chamber is a FLAK .45. Simple, elegant, and it works.
